Full body laser hair removal cost
Hair removal is a sensitive and somewhat controversial topic. It is even more so if you are suffering from extreme hair growth on multiple areas of your body. You may just be naturally hairy or suffer from hirsutism. Either way, another challenge comes around: removing your excess or unwanted hair. In that context, full body laser hair removal may be the most cost and time-efficient. First of all, let us explain why you should rather opt for full body laser hair removal rather than any other hair removal method. Then, we can move onto the price and specific of full body laser hair removal.
The cost of full body laser hair removal
1. Why choose laser hair removal
There may be plenty of reasons why you wish to remove your body hair. It may be a matter of taste, personal preference, self-confidence, hirsutism, etc. Now, the question of the hair removal method is another matter. We have covered extensively that waxing, even though rather convenient, remains painful, time-consuming and may have numerous negative side effects that we would all rather avoid. If you are very hairy, waxing will be a very long and painful process. It will also be rather costly.
As a matter of fact, when comparing laser hair removal to waxing in the long term, and even to shaving, the total cost of laser hair removal was still inferior every single time. We came to the conclusion that laser hair removal can actually be affordable. The added cost of waxing each month of every year for many year raised the bill to a fantastic trip away or a deposit on a house. I don’t know about you, but I would much rather spend that money on some fun rather than on waxing.
Even if shaving was significantly cheaper than waxing in the long-term, it still ended up more expensive than laser hair removal. Plus, shaving does not contribute to hair growth reduction and requires attention every three days or so. To conclude, laser hair removal, and more specifically full body laser hair removal, turns out to be a more sustainable, cost-effective and better way to achieve significant hair growth reduction. And also save money in the long-term.
2. Is full body laser hair removal safe for all skin types?
For a very long time, laser hair removal remained a bit of a mystery. Even today, the technique is still too new to confirm that undergoing laser hair removal is absolutely safe while pregnant and that it has not impact on the foetus. Truth is, we still do not know. Which is why dermatologist and clinics do not advise pregnant women to undergo laser hair removal. In any other contexts, laser hair removal is safe.
Of course, medication and hornone treatments a patient may be on can affect the results of laser hair removal and change their tolerance to pain. Antibiotics increase photosensitivity and patients should not undergo laser hair removal before six months if they have been taking Roaccutane. Similarly, since the hair growth cycle is greatly influenced by hormones, going through hormone therarpy or being on birth control may also affect the results, although not significantly. Patients may need a couple of extra sessions to achieve their desired results.
Beyond that, everybody can undergo full body laser hair removal. The advancement in technology makes laser hair removal safe on all skin tones and hair texture. The brightness of your hair will indeed have an impact too, since their needs to be a pigment contrast between skin and hair for the laser to target the follicle. Light hair have very few pigments. However, dark skin can with no problem do laser hair removal. This is mostly due to development in laser hair removal machines and the coming of diode laser. At Infinity Laser Spa, we use a Nd: YAG Diode Laser by Vertex Laser called V-Frost.

This space between sessions allows to stay in synchronzation with the hair growth cycle of the patient and to target the hair that was missed in the sessions prior. However, patients usually need between eight to ten sessions in order to see excellent results. Depending on wether patients are on medication or taking hormone, they may need additional sessions as weel as touch-ups here and there once a year.
