What would be the cost to have laser hair removal on a very small portion of my forehead with very few hair follicles?

Q:

I want to have laser hair removal on a small portion of my forehead with very few hair follicles.  What would be the cost for this?

A:

Laser hair reduction works very well on dark color hair. It may require 3-6 sessions to achieve about 80% hair reduction, depending on the color of the skin.

The cost can vary, about $200-$300 per session. In Riyadh there are many people doing hair laser. Choose someone with experience. I prefer the doctor to do the procedure rather than a technician.

A:

For laser hair removal procedures, check out a plastic surgery medical spa equipped with multiple lasers as different skin types require different types of lasers for the safest and most effective laser hair removal treatment.

The Candela lasers I use in my practice have a spot size about the size of a quarter, so just a few pulses might effectively treat a small area. However, for complete elimination of hair, multiple treatments (usually about 6) are required.
