I have many friends who have got laser hair removal done and are happy with the results. Is it painful?
Depending on the area being treated, many people say laser hair removal feels like tiny pin pricks. ... During the first few treatments, you'll likely experience a stinging sensation with each laser pulse. You may also feel more pain in sensitive areas such as the underarms or bikini region.
Hair removal on arms and thighs generally does not hurt. Hair loss under the armpit may be a little painful, depending on the individual's skin and physique.
The laser can penetrate the skin directly and reach the hair follicles without burning the skin. Because everyone has different physical conditions, they have different feelings of pain. Before laser hair removal, there will be a trial phase to determine the patient's pain. Before laser hair removal, clean and disinfect the area to be depilated and wrap ice with a towel. Cold compress on the depilated area can reduce the pain. Don't use too much force during hair removal, otherwise it will aggravate the pain. After laser hair removal, it should be disinfected with alcohol, and some anti-inflammatory ointment should be applied to the hair removal area to avoid inflammation
