Laser Hair Removal

Does Laser Hair Removal Hurt?

Is Laser Hair Removal Painful?

Although the level of discomfort experienced during a laser hair removal session depends on your personal tolerance for pain, many people report that laser hair removal is much more comfortable than other forms of hair removal, such as electrolysis or waxing.

During the first few treatments, you’ll likely experience a slight stinging sensation with each laser pulse. You may also find it to be slightly more intense in sensitive areas such as the underarms or bikini line. But even then, the sensation is minimal! Our patients often compare it to the feeling of tiny pinpricks. For the duration of the session, your clinician will have a Zimmer chiller blowing cool air on the treatment area to dispute any discomfort. So there’s not much to fear, especially since our patients note a reduction in discomfort with each subsequent treatment as hair becomes sparser.  After each session, it might feel like you’ve spent too much time in the sun. Your physician will advise you to be extra mindful of the treated area for the twenty-four hours following the session —  so as long as you  refrain from exfoliating the area, dousing it in hot water, and exposing it to excessive sweat until your skin heals from the laser exposure, pain and discomfort are the last thing you’ll need to worry about.
