Laser Hair Removal in Mexico City

The Ultimate Guide to Laser Hair Removal in Mexico City

Last fact-checked: 24 August 2020

Laser hair removal in Mexico City can help you reduce your hair growth without breaking the bank. You'll be able to throw away those waxing kits and razors and show off your smooth, hairless body. 

Other hair removal methods including shaving, sugaring, waxing, threading, hair removal creams; even epilators and tweezers can achieve temporary results. You have to do this regularly and with some methods hair actually seems to grow back coarser. Plus you may face problems like ingrown hair or infections of the hair follicles, causing you unwanted problems.

Laser hair removal is great for reducing or eliminating hair growth. If some fine hair does grow back, it is easier to manage. Normally the most popular areas for this form of hair removal are the face, upper lip, chest, neck, arms, legs or bikini area. If you have significant hair growth in other areas, you should find out the cause for it and get it treated, or talk with your dermatologist about the efficacy of hair removal in those areas.

Esthetic treatments such as laser hair removal can be quite expensive, particularly for large areas of the body. If you are in Mexico City for a vacation or have traveled there for some other reason, then you might consider laser hair removal treatment. You can get a good deal, and you may be able to avail of package deal offers as well, thus reducing your costs even further.

Mexico City is a huge and vibrant metropolis and you will always find lots to see and do there, depending on where you are staying. The downtown area is constantly buzzing and most of the popular tourist attractions are clustered in the city center. You can check out museums, monuments, parks and archaeological sites. As you would expect, there's no shortage of posh neighborhoods, fine dining in reasonably priced restaurants, and nightspots.

Why Book Laser Hair Removal in Mexico City with Medical Departures?

Mexico City boasts a high number of quality clinics for laser hair removal. Yet you may find it challenging to narrow down a place with the confidence you are receiving high-quality care. If doctors and technicians are not as skilled as they should be or careless in the work, you can get burns or pigmentation discoloration. When you get laser hair removal done, you don’t want to invite more skin problems.

Booking through Medical Departures is a safer option because we check out the accreditations, qualifications, training and experience of the doctors attached to the clinics and hospitals we list on our website. We also see that our clinics meet international standards, use modern devices and technology and that staff is able to communicate in English.

  • Free access to our Customer Care Team who can provide 24-hour assistance
  • The ability to change or cancel your appointment at any time

How Long Does Laser Hair Removal Take and What Is the Recovery Time?

If you just a small area of your body done, like your upper lip, underarms or chin the procedure can take only about 15 minutes for one treatment. Larger areas of your body such as arms and legs, chest and back will take longer as the technician has to make many passes with the device to remove the hair. These parts can take more than two hours for both legs for example. However, one treatment is not sufficient as hair growth is erratic and can only be treated when it is in an active phase. Another thing you need to remember is that laser hair removal works best if you have dark hair, but are fair-skinned.

Things to note after treatment:

  • In case you have sensitive skin, you may require some topical anesthetic used that will reduce the pain and burning sensation.
  • You should know that hair takes time to fall out.
  • While no real downtime is required, you may have some swelling and redness (similar to what you might experience after waxing and threading).
  • You will be told how to take care of your skin afterward for the best results and no after-effects.
  • You will be advised to avoid using exfoliating products like coarse scrubs for instance for some time.

What Is the Cost of Laser Hair Removal?

In the U.S laser hair removal rates start at USD 150 and go up to USD 900 depending on the area to be treated—the larger the area, the higher the cost. In Mexico City, you will pay around 50 percent of the price in the US or Canada.
