The Cost Of Laser Hair Removal In NYC
How Much Does Laser Hair Removal Cost?
Removing unwanted body hair is a never ending struggle that millions of Americans have. Shaving, waxing and tweezing are a few amongst many hair removal options. Unfortunately, those methods tend to be uncomfortable, painful and can irritate the skin. However, those methods are also temporary and must be repeated regularly to achieve the look and feel of smooth hairless skin.
They also have side-effects and do not reduce hair growth. On the other hand, laser hair removal is an affordable hair removal option that offers nearly permanent results. Furthermore, it is a cosmetic procedure that is both safe and effective.
Why Undergo Laser Hair Removal?
At Infinity Laser Spa, the treatment is performed by certified laser technicians. We use top laser technology from Vertex Lasers and Alma Lasers. The cost of laser hair removal depends on different factors. However, it remains one of the few hair removal options that offer permanent hair removal.
Fast, effective and low maintenance, laser hair removal provide lasting results with minimal discomfort and downtime. The procedure also solves issues such as ingrown hairs, itchy hair growth, razor burns, etc. How much laser hair removal cost will depends on the length of the treatment and the areas treated. However, a minimum of six sessions six weeks apart is usually required.
What Factors Affect The Cost Of Laser Hair Removal?
The cost of laser hair removal in NYC depend on several factors. The size of the area in one such factor. Indeed, the larger the area, the higher the price of laser hair removal. The number of laser sessions a patient requires will influence the cost too.
Other factors include the skin color, hair color, hair coarseness and thickness. Laser hair removal works on all skin colors, dark and light alike. However, the sharper the skin-to-hair contrast, the easier the laser can pick up the hair. Thus, patients with dark skin and dark hair or light skin and fair hair may need more sessions.
The machine the certified technician uses will also impact how many sessions you need. At Infinity Laser Spa, we only use FDA-approved laser machines: diode lasers that can treat all skin colors and hair colors. Genetics, the hair growth cycle, hormone levels and past history laser hair removal will affect the cost of laser hair removal.
Area Size Guide
However, the biggest factors affecting laser hair removal prices is the size of the treated area. Package prices are based on the service provided. Small areas are faster to treat and cost less, while large areas cost more. Here is the breakdown of those areas at Infinity Laser Spa:
On average, patients will need a at least six laser sessions to maximize results. However, some some treatments will include more sessions. This is because of a patient’s hair growth cycle and the area of the body they treat. Non-hormonal areas will need between six and eight sessions to see significant hair growth reduction.
On the other hand, hormonal areas will require additional sessions. Indeed, as hair growth is triggered by hormones, hair follicles may be harder to destroy and the area may have more hair to treat.
For example, the bikini area is very hormonal. The hair grows darker, ticker and coarser. Thus, patients may need up to twelve laser sessions to achieve permanent hair growth reduction. On the other hand, the lower legs, which are a non-hormonal area, may be treated in six sessions.
Buying Laser Sessions
Some laser hair removal spas and clinics charge a treatment by the session. However, buying individual sessions end up costing a lot of money. At Infinity Laser Spa, clients can purchase laser packages with pricing that includes the recommended number of laser hair removal sessions.
Patients can also purchase additional sessions. Set Infinity laser packages allow clients to reduce the cost of laser hair removal.

The Benefits Of Laser Hair Removal NYC
Laser hair removal is a long-term hair growth reduction method. Indeed, it can reduces hair growth by up to 95%. However, the treatment will require multiple sessions to achieve the desired results. The procedure is performed by a certified laser technician.
Laser hair removal is the most convenient and effective way to remove unwanted hair forever. It is a skin care investment that works on every skin tone and hair color.
Laser hair removal relies on selective photothermolysis. It is a precise technique used to target a specific object on the skin without damaging the surrounding tissue. The laser emits light energy that targets the pigment in the hair.
After the melanin has absorbed the light, the latter travels down to the hair follicle. There, the energy turns into thermal energy. The heat destroys the follicle, preventing any further growth.
The Hair Growth Cycle
Laser hair removal works only when the hair is in the anagen phase of growth. Indeed, it is the only time the hair and follicle connect, allowing the energy to travel from the former to the latter.
Because 20% of all hair is in the anagen phase of growth at any point in time, a laser session can only treat up to 20% of hair. This explains why patients need multiple sessions, every six weeks. After the hair follicle is damaged, no new hair can be produced. That is why results are near permanent.
Other Hair Removal Methods
On the other hand, hair removal methods such as waxing, shaving or using depilatory creams are temporary. They either cut the hair or remove the root, without damaging the hair follicle.
In the very long term, repetitive waxing can eventually lead to hair growth reduction. However, when it comes to the results, they never last as long as laser hair removal. This leads to a lower laser hair removal cost as opposed to the price of other hair removal methods.
Investing in laser hair removal once to reduce hair growth permanently is cheaper than paying multiple times a year to temporarily remove unwanted body hair. In the long-term, the cost of laser hair removal ends up being cheaper. This method also offers longer-lasting results and painless treatments.
