More and more men and women are opting for laser hair removal now-a-days, but many people still have a hard time paying the initial cost. What if we could prove to you that paying a little more upfront could save you thousands down the road? Read on as we break down the cost of shaving and waxing and compare it to laser hair removal.
Time is Money
The majority of men and women will start shaving around the age of 13 and will continue far into their adulthood. For the sake of this article, let’s say you shave from the age of 13 until 55. That’s 42 years, or 2,184 weeks.
You’re likely to shave between 3-4 times a week, averaging about 20 minutes per shave. Multiply the number of weeks by the average number of shaves a week, and we find that you’ll shave about 7,644 times in 42 years. If we then take that number and multiply the amount of time it takes to shave, you end up with 152,880 minutes spent on shaving in your lifetime. That’s 106 days! Think of all the better things you could be doing with that time instead of shaving.
The Dollars & Cents
Buying a value pack of razors seems may seem like a pretty good deal, but it adds up in the long run. A 10 pack of disposable razors is about $10. Because you have different razors for different parts of your body, lets say that you use about 2 razors a week. At that rate, you’ll spend about $104 a year on razors alone. Multiply that by 42 years of shaving and now we’re at $4,368! But that’s not the only cost you have to consider. Shaving cream costs about $3 a can and will on average need to be replaced monthly. Over 42 years, that adds another $1,512 to your lifetime total. That brings our total cost to approximately $5,880. And that’s just if you’re using the cheapest razors (which we really DON’T recommend!)
Most people will receive waxing on a monthly basis, and will wax more than one area of their body. While prices depend on the area, an average cost for getting two body areas done is around $65. If you were to get waxed monthly over a 20 year period, you would spend $15,600 on waxing alone. Plus, waxing is painful and is bad for your skin.
While laser hair removal costs more upfront, after a year you will be experiencing an 80-95% reduction in body hair, which means big savings on razors and waxing. Most people require eight sessions to see full results, and Tropicalaser offers 8 sessions starting at $2,640 for up to 6 body parts.
