Cost Factors

Location of the Med Spa

The cost of living index typically varies from one region to another, which will impact the costs of most types of goods and services in a particular area.

Quality of the Med Spa

Each med spa may be equipped with different class of technologies and amenities, in addition to the experience and expertise of the physicians, support staff, and the kind of personalized care that may be available. The qualitative difference between two med spas can make a difference to the overall cost of laser hair removal at the two places.

Treatable Area

In procedures such as laser hair removal, while making a cost estimate, the medical spa experts will consider the location of treatable area, and the extent of surface area that requires treatment. In some cases, more treatment sessions may be required to meet the patient’s unique aesthetic goals, depending on the hair type, skin type, and other factors. The cost of each treatment sessions may be charged separately.

Average Expense of Laser Hair Removal

Treatment in relatively smaller areas such as the bikini line or the underarms will require lesser amount of time and care. However, larger surface areas such as the legs or the back may require more extensive laser treatment. In case of smaller areas, the cost of treatment can range from $400 to $800 per treatment session. The cost in case of a larger surface area may range between $1,000 and $1,500 per treatment session.

According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), the average cost of a single laser hair removal treatment in the United States is $430. However, the ASPS says that the cost will differ from one place to another depending on various factors. The American Academy of Dermatology (AAD) says that most patients would require four to six treatments spaced four to eight weeks apart. The cost will usually not be covered under the patient’s health insurance plan because it is an elective procedure for aesthetic purposes.
