Is Laser Hair Removal Painless?
Laser hair removal is a different experience for everybody — some patients claim to feel mild discomfort while some promise none felt at all. The sensation of the laser has been described as tiny pinpricks or a rubber band against the skin. We also offer a Zimmer chiller to cool the area during treatment and reduce discomfort.
Compared to waxing, laser hair removal seems almost painless. Waxing rips the hairs from the root and rips at the skin, causing bleeding in some patients. Laser hair removal targets each hair follicle, not the skin directly. There’s no pulling or ripping, and no sticky residue left on the skin post-treatment. Not to mention, waxing has to be repeated periodically to keep the skin smooth. Between waxing sessions, hairs have to grow out long enough for the wax strips to grab it, while with laser hair removal, you can continue to shave as needed with the freedom to show some skin without worrying about unwanted hair.
Laser hair removal is a more permanent, less uncomfortable (in the long term) option to shaving, as well. Some people have to shave every day to maintain smooth skin, which oftentimes causes cuts and razor burn. Laser hair removal is safe, effective, and results in up to 80% permanent hair reduction after a series of treatments. So if you’re sick of irritated skin, ingrowns and daily discomfort from shaving and waxing, it’s time to make the switch to laser.
While laser hair removal isn’t entirely painless, it causes very little discomfort and minimal inconvenience compared to alternate means of hair removal. To date, laser hair removal is the safest way to eliminate hair permanently!
