Is the fear of pain holding you back from trying laser hair removal? What do you feel during laser hair removal? To be honest the word laser doesn’t exactly cite much excitement for sure. If you struggled with hair removal and the painful aftermath no wonder you’re a bit sceptical. And may even associate the sound of medical lasers with some form of pain from hell. But your worries are needless. Laser hair removal is nothing like surviving a waxing session. This is something both myself and thousands of my patients can testify to after being treatment at Skin Perfection, London’s award winning skin and laser hair removal clinic at Oxford Circus.
What do you feel during laser hair removal?
The laser sensation is described as being a little pinprick feeling with a heat sensation which stops straight after the laser’s been fired. At Skin Perfection we’ve invested in Cynosures Cyro Cool Glides which the practitioners connect to the laser hand piece. Whilst your laser treatment is carried out, a comfortable cool air will blow at the skin and making the treatment more pleasant for you.
Your skin after laser hair removal
Your skin will usually look normal, however depending on how your skin absorbs the heat it may appear slightly red or come up with a little heat rash. This is nothing that you would have to worry about as this redness is short lived. Usually slight redness is all that you’ll experience, but by the time you leave it has usually disappeared.
If your skin feels tender and appears slightly red after treatment, your practitioner can apply aloe vera gel to the area. If you need further cooling, you’re welcome to stay in the clinic, and apply a cool pack until the skin has calmed down and you feel ready to leave.
