How Much Does Full-Body Laser Hair Removal Really Cost? The Complete Pricing Guide

Are you tired of the endless cycle of shaving and waxing to remove unwanted body hair? Razor bumps, ingrown hairs, and irritation from temporary hair removal methods can make you dread wearing shorts or swimsuits. 

What if you could say adios to nicks, cuts, and burns and achieve long-lasting smooth skin? Full body laser hair removal offers a long-term solution for silky soft skin without the hassles of daily shaving or waxing appointments. But will it break the bank?

Keep reading as we dive into everything you need to know about the cost of laser hair removal. We’ll walk through the average prices for different body areas, factors that influence cost, tips for budgeting, and how to find affordable options in your local area. 

What Is Full Body Laser Hair Removal?

Laser hair removal utilizes focused beams of laser light to target and damage the hair follicles of unwanted hair on various body parts. The heat from the laser disables the follicles to prevent future hair regrowth, leading to permanent or near-permanent hair reduction over several laser treatments.

Full-body laser hair removal provides the same long-lasting results but treats all areas of the body including the legs, arms, chest, back, shoulders, bikini line, and more. It’s a popular option for people wanting to eliminate hair maintenance across larger body zones, or even achieve complete body hair removal.

Laser hair removal is highly effective for people with light to moderate skin tones and dark, coarse hair growth. It works on hair colors including black, brown, and tan. The laser disables the pigment in the hairs while avoiding damage to the surrounding skin.

How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?

Laser hair removal devices utilize selective photothermolysis – using laser light to target melanin in the hair and follicles without damaging other tissues. The laser emits a beam of highly concentrated light that passes through the skin and is absorbed by the pigment in the hair shaft and bulb.

This creates heat that destroys the follicle so it can no longer produce hair. But the gentle skin around the follicle remains unharmed. The laser settings can be adjusted based on the color and thickness of a person’s hair.

Treated hair sheds in the first few weeks after a session. Most people need between 2 to 6 treatments spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart to see optimal hair reduction. As the hair growth cycle is disrupted, shedding tapers off and becomes finer and lighter over time.

What Factors Influence the Cost of Full Body Laser Hair Removal?

When estimating your full-body laser hair removal cost, there are a few important factors that impact the overall price:

  • Size of treatment area – Larger body zones like legs and back cost more than focused areas like upper lips. A full-body package covers more surface area.
  • Number of treatments needed – Most full body plans include 6 sessions, but some people need 8-12 depending on hair growth.
  • Geographic location – Prices are usually higher in major metro areas than in rural areas.
  • Clinic/provider – Med spas, dermatology centers, and plastic surgery practices vary in their laser hair removal costs.
  • Laser technology – Advanced lasers like diode and Alexandrite lasers are more expensive than older IPL devices.
  • Package deals or discounts – Look for specials like free sessions or referral rewards to lower costs.

What is the Average Cost of Full Body Laser Hair Removal?

The nationwide average cost of full-body laser hair removal ranges from $3000-$4000. Most full-body packages quote the price assuming 6 treatments. We’ll break down estimated costs for various body areas:

AreaPrice Per Session
Full Arms$350 – $400
Half Arms$100 – $200
Underarms$85 – $175
Full Legs$220 – $450
Half Legs$130 – $275
Bikini Line$55 – $150
Brazilian Bikini$87 – $175
Hollywood Bikini$160 – $275
Back (Men)$220 – $450
Back (Women)$120 – $220
Chest$100 – $300
Face (Full)$140 – $250

Combining all body areas for a full body package, expect around $3500 total if receiving treatments at a med spa or laser center. Plastic surgery clinics often charge upwards of $5000 for the same services due to higher overhead costs.

Always get a customized quote for your specific hair/skin type and desired areas to treat. Many factors like hormone levels, genetics, and medications affect the number of sessions needed for optimal results.

What Should I Consider When Budgeting for Laser Hair Removal?

Here are some tips when budgeting and preparing for the costs of full-body laser hair removal:

  • Get free consultations with multiple providers to compare personalized quotes.
  • Ask about financing. Many clinics offer monthly payment plans to divide costs over time.
  • Inquire about deals. Package pricing for multiple areas is often much cheaper overall than paying per session.
  • Set realistic expectations for your budget and don’t choose the cheapest clinic without considering quality. Low prices may signal unsafe practices.
  • Calculate cost per session rather than per pulse when comparing pricing at different providers.
  • Consider touch-up sessions needed in the future after initial packages are completed, usually every 2 to 5 years.

How to Get the Best Value and Prices for Laser Hair Removal

Looking to save money on your laser hair removal treatments? Here are some smart strategies:

  • Ask about referral rewards – Many clinics offer free sessions for referring new clients.
  • Book during low-demand months – Prices are often lower in the fall/winter when demand decreases.
  • Inquire about package deals for paying upfront – You can sometimes get 10-20% off for prepaying a full treatment series.
  • See if the clinic offers lifetime guarantee packages that include free touch-ups – This adds value for the long run.

The key is finding reputable clinics that deliver quality care and excellent results, not just the deepest discounts. Watch out for deals that seem unrealistic – overly cheap pricing may signal lower-quality treatments with less effective lasers.
