Did you know that the average woman shaves 7,718 times in her lifetime…? It is time to consider Laser Hair Removal!

How does the laser works?

Laser hair removal works by gently applying heat energy to penetrate the surface of the skin and destroy the hair follicle at the root. Most people do not realize that laser hair removal initially may be more expensive than waxing but when you take into account how many times you will have to get waxed within a year, laser hair removal pays for itself AND provides permanent results!

Compare the costs over a lifetime, and the choice for laser hair removal is clear

  • Average cost in money for waxing $23,000
  • Average cost in money for shaving $10,207
  • Average cost in money for laser hair removal $5,000
  • Average cost in time for waxing 482 hours
  • Average cost in time for shaving 1402 hours
  • Average cost in time for laser hair removal 18 hours

Remember time is money!!!
