Does The Laser Hair Removal Process Hurt?
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 more comfortable than other forms of hair removal, such as electrolysis or waxing.
During the first few treatments, you’ll likely experience a stinging sensation with each laser pulse. You may also feel more pain in sensitive areas such as the underarms or bikini line. But even then the pain is not intolerable. People compare it to the feeling of having a rubber band snapped against their skin, and many note a reduction in pain with each subsequent treatment as hair becomes sparser. It’s also probable your physician will apply a topical anesthetic to the site prior to treatment to further reduce the pain.
After each session, it might feel like you’ve spent too much time in the sun. Your physician will likely tell you to be extra mindful of the treated area for the twenty-four hours following the session. This usually means refraining from exfoliating the area, dousing it in hot water and exposing it to excessive sweat.
