Hair Removal is one of the Top Five Salon Services and Can Account for Approximately a Third of Beauty Salon and Spa Revenues in Spain.

DUBLIN, Ireland -- Research and Markets ( announced the addition of "Salon Hair Removal Market Spain 2007" to their offering.

Demand is very strong for hair removal or depilatory treatments in Spanish salons and estimated to be increasing at approximately 20% per annum.

Hair removal is one of the top five salon services and can account for approximately a third of beauty salon and spa revenues in Spain. Spending is aesthetically driven as people use salon depilatory services to enhance their personal appearance by removing unwanted hair.

However, there is evidence that the traditional beauty salon, which specialises in waxing, is losing hair removal sales to the new market entrants, among them, the medspas (or medical spas) that specialise in laser and IPL hair removal treatments.

Spending on, and prices of, hair removal will increase, largely due to the greater demand for the more expensive laser, and IPL treatments.

Body areas or zones depilated include legs, brows, upper lip, underarms, groin ("Brazilian") and bikini line.

Hair removal treatments include waxing, laser, laser diode, electric and tweezers.


The author interviewed experts representing almost 500 professional beauty salons and spas across the country. Salons and spas are located in the largest Spanish cities including Barcelona, Bilbao, La Coruna, Madrid, Marbella, and Puerto Banus.
