Laser Hair Removal x Waxing

How much does the average woman spend on waxing?

While respondents reported waxing only one to two times per month, women who wax will spend an average of $23,000 on hair removal in a lifetime. 

American Laser Centers conducted the hair removal study to determine the cost savings benefit of laser hair removal verses a lifetime of shaving or waxing. 

Not only is it a lot of money, but waxing results don’t last. If you want to get rid of your unwanted hair and have effortlessly smooth skin, here are 3 reasons why laser hair removal is better than waxing.

The survey, by American Laser Centers, said women remove unwanted body hair for an average period of 53.6 years, using methods such as shaving, waxing and depilatory creams.

 If you want to get rid of your unwanted hair and have effortlessly smooth skin, here are 3 reasons why laser hair removal is better than waxing.


Waxing results don’t last. Wax is applied and then ripped off quickly in the opposite direction of hair growth causing hairs to be torn out at the root. If your unwanted hair is too short, the wax can’t grab the hair and the hair won’t be pulled out. In order to see results, you must grow your unwanted hair at least half an inch before your next waxing session. Waxing’s results only last a few weeks and you’ll need to wax again and again.

Laser hair removal results are effective. Significant results can be seen after a few laser treatments, but it will require several treatments to complete the process. Once you’ve received the amount of hair reduction you want, you can say hello to effortlessly smooth skin!


Regular waxing sessions can add up to several thousands of dollars over your lifetime. As long as you wax, you will continue spending money to remove unwanted hair. Depending on how many areas you wax, you will end up spending thousands and thousands of dollars.

Laser hair removal costs are very affordable. At St Pete Wellness Med Spa, we only focus on laser hair removal to give you the best price and result! 


It is no secret that waxing is very painful, which will make you second guess going to your next appointment in two to four weeks.

Laser hair removal discomfort is manageable.  Many laser hair removal clients describe the feeling like a rubber band snapping against their skin, with the sensation only lasting a few seconds.  We use Versa Velocity which is a specific device that cools the skin, reduces inflammation and relaxes your body to make the treatment comfortable. If you can tolerate the pain of waxing, laser hair removal will be comfortable to get rid of your unwanted hair.
