Over 1.2M Laser Hair Removal Sessions Sold By Groupon – That’s a lot of Hair Removal

Groupon Logo

Here is some fun laser hair removal statistics. We looked at Groupon.com and pulled as many laser hair removal deals that we could find on their site. We normalized this down to the smallest body part, the armpit, since most Groupon offers will count that as a 1 session. We excluded all the offers that were based on spa credits, opting instead to only look at the pure laser hair removal offers.

In the end we ended up analyzing:

– 381 deals
– covering 120 markets
– located in 47 states/provinces (we only looked at North America)
– covering deals from July 19, 2009 to February 8, 2011

Here is what we discovered:

– Groupon has sold $32.5M worth of laser hair removal services ($35,544,241 based on what we analyzed)
– Based on the stated regular price, this would have saved consumers over $200M in laser hair removal services
– The $32.5M represents 281,590 units sold and if you equate that to the number of sessions that would mean 1,263,131 total laser hair removal sessions sold

Laser Hair Removal on Armpit / Underarm

That’s a lot of laser hair removal. If we were to add up the offers from LivingSocial + offers from all the daily deal sites around north america that number would be much larger. I think the bottom line is this, laser hair removal is clearly popular and daily deal sites such as Groupon offer a great way to save some money. We have done numerous posts on Laser Hair Removal Pricing in Canada, check them out.

What was the best/worst offer from Groupon?
Which business in North America, grossly overstated their regular price?
What is the breakdown by state/province?

Stay tuned – we have lots of data that we will be sharing with you.

Groupon and Laser Hair Removal in Canada – Are These Really Good Deals?

You may or may not know, but Groupon (group buying site) launched in Canada early this year. Since that time we have tweeted @nobodyhair the various deals happening around the country for hair removal. So we wanted to put to the test, whether or not these laser hair removal deals are good. Here is what we found:


On Sept 11 – Skin2 Laser Aesthetics Centre was running a deal – $99 for Three Laser Hair-Removal Treatments at Skin2 Laser Aesthetics Centre (Up to $330 Value). The fine print stated that you could only use on the following areas – underarms, brows, bikini area, chin, upper lip, sideburns, dorsal fin, hairline, neck, ears, foot, and nipples.

That would make it $33 for each treatment. If we compare the underarm treatment price, compared to 3 businesses that we reviewed in Vancouver, see Male Brazilian Laser Hair Removal, we find the prices for underarm laser hair removal at; $75 to $78.

This was a good deal.


On Sept 12 – Yonge Eglinton Laser Eye + Cosmetic Centre ran a deal $99 for Four Laser Hair-Removal Sessions at Yonge Eglinton Laser Eye + Cosmetic Centre (Up to $596 Value). It was valid only for underarms, upper lip, chin, sideburns, bikini line, or neck.

Price per underarm in this case was $25. We have not done a specific comparison in Toronto for the prices of underarm hair removal, but we did compare Underarm Waxing Prices across Canada and at $25 for this deal, the average in Toronto for waxing was $14.60 – this was a good deal.

On June 6 – The Sarum Room Laser Clinic ran a deal $199 for Three Laser Hair-Removal Treatments from The Sarum Room Laser Clinic (Up to $600 Value). This was valid only for Underarm, bikini, face, chin, sideburns, and full bikini.

This works out to $66 per underarm. Although much more costly that the Young Eglington Deal, this was approaching being a neutral deal. It saved you some money, but their regular rates ($200 for an underwear) – over priced. If you bought this, you did not go wrong, but you also did not save any significant money.


On Sept 26 – Dermis Advanced Skin Care ran a deal $149 for Six Laser Hair-Removal Treatments at Dermis Advanced Skin Care (Up to $540 Value). This was valid for chin, upper lip, underarms, linea, sternum, cheeks, sideburns & jawline and you have to use 2 for bikini.

This worked out to $24 for underarm – good deal.


On Sept 12 – Silky Skin Laser and Esthetics Centre ran a deal $99 for Three Laser Hair-Removal Treatments at Silky Skin Laser and Esthetics Centre (Up to $315 Value). This was valid for upper lip & chin, underarms, bikini line, full face, men’s neck front or back.

For underarms this was $33 per session. We did a comparison on Edmonton Full Leg Laser Hair Removal Prices and if we compare some of the sites we looked at for their prices on underarms we find prices of $85 to $100. This was a good deal.


Currently running this weekend from Target Health is $75 for Three Laser Hair-Removal Treatments at Target Health in Gold’s Gym ($147 Value). Valid for underarm, chin and upper lip, may combine for larger areas.

Price for underarm is $25. Their regular price is $49 so at $25 this is a pretty good.

For the most part, beside the early deal done in Toronto back in June, if you want to get some laser hair removal treatments done, you might want to follow Groupon, some of the deals are worth it.
