Can You Get Laser Hair Removal With Numbing Cream?
A hair-free look.
A smooth touch.
A desire to say sayonara to razors and wax.
The results of laser hair removal are overwhelmingly positive. It gives clients an aesthetically pleasing look as a practical decision that will save time and money in the future.
Some, however, might be tentative about the process. Will there be pain? And if so, are there any ways to avoid the discomfort?
The short answer is yes; and the method used to sidestep any unpleasantness is the topic of an article from The List.
The List highlights ways clients can prepare themselves prior to treatment to avoid any potential pain. An assortment of numbing creams are listed, and those creams work by preventing nerve signals from sending a message to the brain that a part of the body is in pain.
Common ingredients in numbing creams include lidocaine, benzocaine, and pramoxine, which address any discomfort very quickly.
The List notes such creams as Ebanel Numb520, Numb Master 5% Lidocaine, and Everyday Medicine numbing creams as popular pre-laser hair removal treatments creams. Each will be effective for at least an hour, and the Everyday Medicine cream can last up to four hours.
The article also highlights that these creams are safe to use under a laser. It’s important information to have due to the pre-treatment instruction to not apply any makeup or lotions prior to laser hair removal treatment.
One other element to consider is asking your laser hair removal professional if the clinic or spa has options to combat any potential pain. Some clinics implement Cryogen, a cooling mist that curbs any discomfort caused by laser treatment. Ask about this during a consultation and absolutely prior to the first treatment.
