Laser Treatments are Cost Effective
Laser based hair removal is cost effective in the long run as compared to other hair removal procedures. The results become more sustainable with each session, with several patients reporting permanent outcomes.
This means you can stop paying for hair removal. Also, you don’t need an everyday maintenance for sustaining long term results. Laser hair removal is an efficient and convenient treatment that involves a one-time cost. This is why many treatment providers recommend the procedure in comparison with other non-surgical options for hair removal.
However, it is wise to compare costs involved in laser hair removal with other options in the backdrop of estimated result longevity and efficacy.
Factors Influencing Cost
Total surface area of the treated skin is one of the key factors determining the laser hair removal treatment cost. Thighs, legs, forearms, and back among other body parts usually require a more pervasive treatment. Bikini area, underarms, and face generally need limited treatment sessions.
The number of treatment sessions plays a huge role in determining the estimated overall cost of the procedure. The treatment provider will estimate the total required number of sessions based on the areas of treatment, skin type, hair growth cycle, hair color, and your personal cosmetic goals.
Patients, in general, require 5 – 8 sessions for hair removal. Costs are usually computed for every session required. This means that the cost of treatment can differ between two patients getting the treatment at the same practice. Surface area impacts the cost as well. For instance, underarms and bikini area are half the surface area of the legs, thighs, and arms.
This reduces the number of sessions, duration, and the overall monetary amount of the treatment. You can check with your treatment provider about package price and special rebate if you are getting multiple procedures done at the same medical spa.
Financing and Insurance Options
Generally, health insurance companies don’t cover the cost of laser hair removal. This is an elective cosmetic procedure and insurers don’t usually offer coverage. However, you can choose from various financing options that can make it easy for you to pay for the procedure. For instance, you can always apply for a loan with a professional third-party medical care financing company.
This way you can pay for the treatment costs in easy monthly installments. Cosmetic surgeon Dr. Peter Koltz receives patients from Toledo, Maumee, Northwest Ohio, Southeastern Michigan, and nearby areas for laser hair removal treatments.
