Cost of laser hair reduction can be confusing for some. Every laser centers quote different prices. Price depends upon two things:

  1. QUALITY OF LASER: Laser comes in all quality. Laser machine can cost from 1 lakh to 30 lakhs INR. The better quality machine delivers better results. Make sure you are getting it done by USFDA approved machine. Ask the center for the brand name. Google it to find whether its USFDA approved or not. The center with a good quality machine would charge you more. Also, the chances of side effects of laser hair reduction are much higher with a low-quality laser.


  1. WHO IS DOING THE LASER: Laser treatments should be done under the supervision of a qualified dermatologist. It’s very important that right energies are delivered. Results depend upon the interplay of right energy, pulse width, spot size. It can be decided by a dermatologist. Laser done by non-medicos will charge you lesser. Under a doctor’s guidance, one can attain desired results.


Thus, it’s you who need to decide what quality of work you want, what kind of results you want and accordingly you choose a center and pay for it. A center run by a doctor and having the best of the lasers is certainly going to come with a price tag. But trust me, investing once is far better than investing lesser and then later cry either because of lack of desired results or due to side effects.

SUMMARY: Cost of laser hair reduction depends upon the quality of laser and the experience and qualification of the person doing it. When using USDA approved laser and done under dermatologist supervision then only results come. So invest in that.

With advent of technology, lasers have undergone a huge transformation. Newer  technology replaces the old one almost every five years. Laser hair reduction is no exception.


IPL: Very first we had IPL –Intense pulse light for laser hair reduction. It’s basically broad band light and not specific to kill hair. Thus, it was least effective.

Nd :Yag Long pulse laser: Better than IPL since it was more specifically targeting hair. Drawback was energy needed to kill hair would make the whole procedure very painful.

Diode: The best so far. Diode is specific for targeting hair, and is suitable for all skin colors. Also it has proved it’s efficacy in reducing hair safely and for long term over more than two decades.

Alexendride: Technically superior to diode in giving results, but is too expensive thus didn’t get much acceptance in market. Also it’s a very strong laser, so if done right, give good results but in case gone wrong, chances of burns are much higher.

Triple wavelength laser: It emits all the three wavelengths: ND:YAG, diode and alexandrite in single shot . Technically sounds to be the best. Fault lies in the fact that one third is wasted in less effective Nd: Yag. The alexandrite put in this triple wavelength laser is not of the right pulse width required to kill hair. Thus, plain alexendride is better than the triple wavelength laser.

So now we know that diode is the best laser.

Apart from the technology it’s the quality that matters.

A cheap diode laser won’t give any results. Only a high quality US FDA approved laser would give the desired results. A photograph can be clicked with a cheap smart phone camera and also with a high quality DSR camera. Quality and the results of the photograph is not going to be the same. Same stands for laser. Thus always check for the laser quality before going for laser.


Just ask for the brand name of the laser and google it out. You will find out the quality and technology . In case the clinic refuses to divulge the details , you already got your answer.
