Which is cheaper electrolysis or laser?
At first glance, laser may appear to be more cost effective than electrolysis. However, keep the following facts in mind: 1. Laser hair removal is not permanent. Many laser technicians will inform you that you will likely have to continue purchasing packages and “touching up” your laser treatments throughout your life. This maintenance will add up over time. Despite being more labor intensive, electrolysis is more cost effective and permanent on smaller treatment areas (like the upper lip). For larger treatment areas, laser may be more cost-effective up front, but the chances of needing to spend more later to maintain laser hair reduction are quite high. With electrolysis, you’re paying for permanence.
