Does Laser Hair Removal hurt?
The average woman will spend over £12,000 in her lifetime on hair removal products and treatments, most of which are only very temporary solutions and can be extremely painful! Waxing and epilating involve ripping the hairs out from the root, so you can imagine how this feels and probably have at some point experienced this near torture. Shaving can irritate the skin and cause razor burn and smelly epilation creams can create skin rashes and redness.
At Skin Perfection, in the heart of the West End in London, we offer laser hair removal, a clinically proven effective treatment which not only now takes the sting out of hair removal but can offer permanent results!
One of the common questions we get asked is ‘does laser hair removal hurt?’.
What is Laser Hair Removal? Does it hurt?
Laser hair removal is a device-led treatment which utilises the power of selected pulses of light which is emitted into the hair follicles, heating and destroying the hairs. This process thins and weakens the hair until growth is permanently reduced but the surrounding skin is left unharmed.
At Skin Perfection, we use the Cynosure range of laser devices, which are award-winning, medical-grade devices which can perform laser hair removal on most skin types. We recently upgraded to the gold standard Elite+ and Apogee+ class 4 laser platforms to ensure that you are receiving the most technologically advanced, comfortable treatment available on the market today.
A laser hair removal treatment can feel a little warm but the Cynosure systems offer built-in cooling, which offers a more comfortable treatment than traditional lasers. Most of our patients feel little to no pain at all, and we are on-hand to make you as relaxed as possible during your session!
A course of treatment is needed to obtain the best results as the hairs that are in their ‘anaegen’ (growing) phase are only affected and this phase isn’t achieved at the same time. Although this treatment cannot officially claim the hair is permanently removed, most people can enjoy a 95% reduction in their unwanted hair with top up treatments usually required every 6 months; unlike painful waxing or epilation which must be repeated every 4 to 6 weeks or irritating and repetitive shaving or creaming which must be repeated every day in some cases!
