Is laser hair removal painful?
With every other epilation treatment, the laser beam penetrates deeper into the hair structure. In result, with every treatment a feeling of discomfort may gain in strength. Sensation can be compared to being stuck with a hot needle – neither pleasant, nor unbearable. Under no circumstances should you take any painkillers prior to laser hair removal. This is a contraindication to the procedure, seeing as these agents dilute blood and plump up the skin.
