Unwanted hair can be a big nuisance or nightmare for many men and women. A few years ago, removal was impractical, uncomfortable, slow and expensive, so laser hair removal is very important nowadays. Laser hair removal is one of the most in demand beauty services because apart from electrolysis, which can be painful and very expensive, many other hair removal methods provide only temporary results.
Thanks to the technological advances that made laser hair removal possible as it helps you achieve the desired results within a short time after the required treatment sessions of 8 to 10. It can be said that the procedure results in permanent hair removal as you will not experience it for many months, which most people expect.
Laser hair removal is very good and many people always ask: “Does laser hair removal hurt?” The answer is yes. You will experience mild pain, but several studies have shown that 8 out of 10 patients can be treated without anesthesia, but if the procedure in your case causes uncomfortable symptoms, the technician or doctor will use anesthesia on the skin that will absorb in minutes to numb the pain.
Since the hair follicles are always around the nerve endings, it therefore react to the heat and cause mild pain or discomfort. People with dark and thick hair are likely to have more discomfort than people with light or thin hair. The reason is that dark, thicker hair absorbs more laser during treatment. In most cases, hair becomes less dense and thinner after each subsequent treatment. For this reason, the symptoms of laser treatment always occur.
To minimize the discomfort of laser hair removal, you can use an anesthetic cream. You should discuss this with the technician or doctor because discomfort is one of the things that professionals consider when deciding the appropriate area for the laser. Despite the fact that prescribed anesthetic creams are safe, applying them to large body areas can cause them to enter the bloodstream in excessive amounts. Therefore, it should not be applied to the skin before treatment. You have to let the professionals do it for you.
