How painful is laser hair removal you may ask? And I will be glad to tell you that it isn’t painful. Although you may a feel a sensation of heat during the treatment, if any level of pain is experienced the treatment should stop immediately. With laser hair removal the concept is to destroy the hair follicle with heat, rather than physically pulling out your hair. Hence the reason why you should only expect a warm sensation best described like an elastic band hitting the skin. And if you think how long an elastic pinch last, you get the picture of the laser sensation quite accurately.
How painful is laser hair removal?
Laser hair removal should never be a painful treatment. Any level of pain indicates that the settings are too high for your skin therefore there is a chance of developing burns and pigmentation. While you do feel a heat sensation during your treatment it should not cause you physical pain. If you ever waxed or epilated before and managed the pain that accompanies these procedures laser will be a walk in the park. In fact most patients don’t feel a thing.
In order to ensure your comfort is maintained at all times, a cool air glide sprays cold air to your skin at the same time as the laser fires a shot, so in many cases all patients report is feeling the cold chill, rather than the heat. But of course its vary with all individual tolerance for any heat related sensation.
