Laser Hair Removal has been gaining popularity as the solution to getting rid of unwanted hair, but the common question everyone asks is “Does it hurt?” This uncertainty is what keeps many people from pursuing the treatment and instead continuing with their traditional razor or waxing techniques. The truth is that laser hair removal is nowhere near as painful as waxing.
Those who have undergone the treatment have been known to give positive feedback about the treatment and have preferred it over the waxing experience. Sometimes, a harmless procedure may even be used in order to numb the area before beginning the treatment. There have been rare cases in which the patient sees a little redness in the skin, but nothing more.
It is important to remember that each case varies based on the thickness of the hair as well as the color. Those with thin, light-colored hair see less discomfort because a darker complexion will grab more light, causing more heat.
To sum it up, if you have been wanting laser hair removal, but have been putting it off due to a fear of intolerable pain, there is truly nothing to be afraid of. However, you must keep in mind that your experience greatly depends on who is giving the treatment!
