Beauty comes at a price. Most methods and products can be expensive, not to mention the other price of beauty: pain. When someone mentions laser hair removal, expensive and pain are the most likely things to pop into your head, but then waxing and tweezing aren’t that fun either. One thing people fail to think about when considering laser hair removal is the economical and eco-friendly benefits.
For instance, how many times have you purchased razors this year? Then of course there’s also shaving cream, refill blades, and the amount of water you use in the process. The cost and the waste add up quickly. Now multiply that price by all the years you’ll end up shaving, which could be over 40 years, and sources have estimated a woman can spend close to $10,000 on shaving products in her lifetime!
As far as the waste goes, BIC alone sells over 3.65 billion razors a year, but you only get on average 7.5 shaves from each razor. Think of how many razors you throw out each year. And where do those shavers end up? The plastic waste from all the packaging from the razors, refills, and shaving cream cans sit in landfills for years.
There is the option of just letting it grow, but most women aren’t comfortable with that look. (Remember the time Julia Roberts let her underarm hair grow?) The other option, waxing, may be less wasteful than shaving, but is much more expensive. On average, a bikini wax can range from $30 to $100, and has to be done every 4 to 6 weeks. Laser hair removal is not only eco-friendly, but it also saves time. Paying a lot up front for laser hair treatment may seem daunting, but putting it into perspective shows it is a green choice.
