How Painful Is Laser Hair Removal?

Laser hair removal is one of the few ways to permanently reduce unwanted hair growth. In the past, it was a fairly painful process, even for those with the ideal skin tones and hair color. Patients interested in laser hair removal also have concerns about how painful laser hair removal is. So, let’s answer the question, “How painful is laser hair removal?”

At Northwest Face & Body, we use a triple wavelength laser that is calibrated for each patient’s hair color and skin tone. This means that it does not deliver more or less energy than is needed for the treatment. Additionally, it contains a self-cooling handpiece that cools the heat of the laser almost simultaneously to the treatment.

The laser is also fractionated which means that our master estheticians fragment the laser into small pieces. This limits discomfort and pain associated with laser hair removal. Many patients today describe it as mostly painless or a small snapping sensation against the skin.
