One of the biggest factor that holds patients back from laser hair removal is the fear of pain. What laser hair removal feels like? Will it be painful? Do you need to take time off? How does it all work? The fear is understandable. After all we are talking about lasers that are medical equipments. Which we immediately associate with pain. Or may be after years of torturous waxing it just sounds too nice to believe that there is a more effective way of removing hair without having to suffer through it.
What laser hair removal feels like? And what can you expect during the treatment?
The laser sensation is described as being a little pinprick feeling with a heat sensation which stops straight after the laser has been fired. Thanks to advanced laser technologies like Cynosure‘s Cyro Cool Glides a comfortable cool air will blow at the skin whilst your laser treatment is carried out. This makes your treatment more pleasant.
You may still feel an element of heat and a few little pricks at the skin but this is totally manageable. Or you may feel nothing at all. Which is the case for most patients. Some patients say waxing is more painful and I totally agree, having able to survive waxing only twice myself.
What should you expect after the treatment?
Your skin will usually look normal. However your skin may appear slightly red or come up with a little heat rash which is usually short lived. This can be reduced by applying aloe vera which contains anti- inflammatory ingredients. Usually slight redness is all that you will experience, but by the time you leave the Clinic it has usually disappeared.
