Laser hair removal is not considered cheap for some people. However, if you are someone who typically waxes, the price for waxing does add up over time whether you wax at home or receive it as a service. For example, a full leg wax can cost up to $55 for only half a leg. Therefore, while you may think you are saving money because one wax treatment is less than one laser treatment, the cost of waxing eventually does add up. Even shaving can cost you a pretty penny if you add up the costs of razors over the course of several years. Laser treatments are typically permanent and therefore, you will never need to buy wax or a razor after you receive laser hair removal. You may want to consider whether you can afford a bigger upfront cost in order to save money in the long term.
Laser hair removal used to only work for people with light skin and darker hair. However, due to the influx of new technology, there are now laser machines that can treat people with a variety of hair and skin tones. For example, the Lumenis Splendor X machine is able to completely customise a patient's laser treatment depending on the skin tone, skin, type, and hair color. This is due to SPLENDOR X’s state of the art laser system and Blend X technology (Binary Laser Emission of Nd: YAG and Alexandrite wavelengths). Furthermore, the Splendor X is an extremely fast, effective and safe treatment option.
There are several things you must do before you receive laser hair removal. First, before your first session, avoid waxing, plucking, threading and bleaching for at least 2-3 weeks. The laser machine needs to find the hair in the hair follicle so it cannot be completely removed. It is however important to shave the treatment area the night before your laser treatment. This is so the laser can treat the hair under the skin vs on top of the skin (which can lead to burning). The treatment area must be perfectly clean as well. This means no moisturiser, makeup, and/or self tanner. Last, the area must not be sunburnt and tanned by the sun for the best results.
Unfortunately, all tattoos must be covered while doing laser hair removal. Therefore, any areas of the body where one has tattoos cannot have hair removed by a laser.
