Does Laser Hair Removal hurt?

Have you been thinking of doing laser hair removal but feel scared it may hurt? Or perhaps you aren’t sure what to expect? Nina L'Allure has the answers!

Does laser hair removal hurt?

Everyone’s pain threshold is different and can vary depending on things like, if you are a woman where you are in your menstrual cycle, or medications that can make the skin more sensitive. Some describe the sensation as warm and tingling likened to the feeling one has after a day on the beach and some compare the feeling to a rubber band flicking the skin. You might notice it on more tender areas (like a Brazilian) but most machines have an in-built cooling system and some clinics will use additional cooling which helps to desensitise the area.

Is laser hair removal safe?

When it comes to the machines used in laser hair removal, the laser beam can’t penetrate past the dermis and is therefore extremely safe if used correctly.

What are the side effects?

Like any laser treatment you can experience temporary skin irritation, redness or swelling. Occasionally it can affect pigment, but this is also usually temporary.

Which body parts does laser work best on?

The most popular places are the face, underarms, bikini line, back and chest for men, and legs but laser removal can be applied anywhere that has hair. What’s more important for results is the contrast in colour between the skin and hair. Larger areas take time so it’s wise to plan your sessions in stages.

Ask questions.

Before starting any cosmetic or skincare treatment its best to know exactly what you’re getting and the team who is doing the work. Does the technician have the relevant qualifications? Ask them if you’re a good candidate for treatment. What do you need to know from them in order to achieve the best results?
