Laser Hair Removal

Does Laser Hair Removal Hurt?

Step 1

Is Laser Hair Removal Painful?

Laser hair removal certainly doesn’t hurt as much as waxing! And each session is way faster than waxing, too. Depending on the area being treated, many people say laser hair removal feels like tiny pinpricks against the skin, while others say it feels like nothing at all. The level of discomfort you might experience, if any, depends on your pain tolerance.

During the first few treatments, you’ll likely experience a slight stinging sensation with each laser pulse — more so in sensitive areas such as the underarms or bikini region. But even then, most patients find the sensation to be very tolerable and note a reduction in discomfort with each subsequent treatment, as the hair becomes sparser. Your clinician will also use a Zimmer chiller, which is a cooling device that blows cold air on the treatment area to further reduce any discomfort! Don’t worry, we’ve got your back — and your bikini line, and your legs, and any treatment areas you might be considering.

All in all, there’s really nothing to fear with laser hair removal. It’ll only take a few sessions for you to realize that the lifelong results are well worth the slight discomfort you might experience.
