Laser Hair Removal Or Waxing


Laser Hair Removal or Waxing?

When it comes to hair removal people generally fall into one of two camps:

1. Those who’ve had their hair removed permanently with laser
2. Those who wish they could afford laser hair removal

Whilst laser hair removal has without a doubt proven to be the single most effective form of permanent hair reduction (yes it is more effective than electrolysis hair removal, despite what you may read online), it isn’t the cheapest option upfront.

laser hair removal is actually cheaper than shaving or waxing?

At Laser Chic Clinic, six bikini line treatments cost on average around £456 (if a package is bought), which can seem like a lot to spend on de-fuzzing. However after the average 6-8 treatments required in order to permanently get rid of your unwanted hair, that’s pretty much it – no more plucking, waxing or shaving.
As a laser clinic owner, I always get asked laser hair removal or waxing? It will probably come as no surprise that I am living proof that laser hair removal is indeed permanent – 8 years of proof to be exact as I started laser hair removal in 2008. But would it surprise you if I told you that in the long term, laser hair removal is actually cheaper than shaving or waxing?

Laser Vs. Wax

I could sit here and write and tell you all about the benefits of having laser hair removal (and there are several), but for me, and the majority of my clients at Laser Chic it’s the sheer freedom it gives you when you’re not having to both worry about, and deal with unwanted hair.
There are financial benefits too. Laser hair removal, in the long term is cheaper than waxing and shaving and most importantly will save you a staggering amount of time.

Laser vs. Wax

Time is money after all…, and if you value your time, as much as your bank balance, then laser hair removal treatment is definitely not the unaffordable expensive option you once thought it to be, as the chart below demonstrates.
The table below shows the cost of a full bikini wax vs. permanent hair removal. The table is based on a laser hair removal package of 6 treatments and a Hollywood wax at £30 per treatment.
Laser and waxing cost comparison

So, Laser Hair Removal or Waxing?

As this table shows, to have your bikini permanently removed, the cost would be approximately £990 and would take 4 hours of your time, spread over a year. On-going bikini waxing over 30 years would set you back approximately £10,800.00 and takes up 5 lots of 24 hours of your time – or 10 days to be exact.
