Laser hair removal has several benefits – less pain, faster session. Body hair removal takes time, and for many men and women time is extremely valuable.
However, what most people don’t realize is that laser hair removal also saves money long term. When you add up the cost of razors, shaving cream or waxing sessions, permanent laser hair removal will pay for itself many times over!
Average Time Waxing
Waxing can take anywhere between an hour to 15 minutes, depending on the area. Waxing should also be done monthly for best results. Full arms, legs and bikini area would take about an hour. So we are looking at 12 hours per year. Lets assume a lifetime of 50 years.
Total: 12 hours / year or 600 hours over a lifetime
Average Time Getting Laser Hair Reduction
A laser hair removal regiment requires between 6 to 8 sessions every 4 weeks. Followed by maintenance sessions once every three months and less and less frequently as time goes by. In addition, the maintenance sessions usually take on average 30 minutes.
Full arms, legs and bikini would take about an hour as well.
8 hours (initial) + 100 hours of maintenance / 108 hours over a lifetime
Average cost of Waxing
Waxing, while being more expensive than shaving is preferred by many because it lasts longer, doesn’t leave bumps or stubble and is better on the skin. Lets assume $25 for underarm, $85 for full leg and $75 for Brazilian wax. This adds up to $185 / month.
Total: $2220 per year / $111,000 over a lifetime
