Why is Laser Hair Removal So Expensive?

Laser Laser Hair Removal is expensive compared to other hair removal methods. This simple reason for this is due to the high acquisition cost of machines, maintenance and the materials used during these treatments are also very costly.

A real laser machine will run tens of thousands of dollars, even used. Of course, there are some affordable laser hair removal machines, such as laser hair removal machines from Zhengzhou PZ Aurora Beauty & Technology Co., Ltd.(http://www.toplipolaser.com/), a reliable beauty equipment manufacturer from China. Laser hair removal systems cost around $40,000 with a high maintenance bill each year. Plus each operator needs to be fully trained and most are practicing medical professionals.

Laser Hair Removal is expensive compared to buying a disposable shaver, but not very expensive if you compare it to paying for a waxing job every 3-4 weeks, especially when you factor in the value of your time. Certainly there is an up-front expenditure for a series of laser treatments, but you quickly get a return on your investment, all the while achieving your goal of hair removal!

Overall, Laser Hair Removal is not so expensive. More expensive per treatment, but fewer overall treatments are required.
