Does Laser Hair Removal Hurt?
Many middle and high schoolers had to go through the awkward phase of having braces on their teeth.
Of course the braces were a means to straighten teeth, but the process to get that smile picture-perfect took some time. The desired look didn’t arrive overnight. Oftentimes it took a year or two for the teeth-straightening journey to conclude.
More often than not, the patience paid off with desired results. Those senior pictures looked great with some beautiful, straight pearly whites.
But getting those results wasn’t always a rosy process. Routine, monthly tightening of the braces resulted in soreness. Teeth literally move into place, and it takes time, but the result was worth it.
So, why mention this example in a space that discusses laser hair removal? Because many potential laser hair removal clients have questions, and top among them is does laser hair removal hurt?
That’s the topic of a Seventeen article. Does laser hair removal hurt? Will one area be more painful than another? Is it uncomfortable during every treatment?
But first comes some background of the treatment. The process of laser hair removal involves the laser targeting the hair follicle and stopping its growth cycle. Multiple treatments that span a few weeks apart (just like braces maintenance) will yield smooth, hair-free skin.
To hear that a laser will be involved may raise some concern. The truth is – as Seventeen points out – it depends on the person. Everyone’s experience is different, and what one considers an uncomfortable treatment, may not bother someone else.
In regard to discomfort to specific body areas, it’s all about areas with more nerve endings. That means the upper lip, bikini area, and underarms may be slightly uncomfortable because the skin in those regions is thinner than that of the legs or buttocks, for example.
Also, Seventeen notes that with every treatment each client receives, the comfort levels improve because far less hair must be treated.
