Does Laser Hair Removal Hurt?

Laser Hair Removal has become the gold standard for men and women looking for a permanent solution to hair reduction. Like waxing and shaving, laser hair removal is a hair reduction method but the results last significantly longer with far better results than conventional methods. It is one of the top searched non-invasive energy-based aesthetic treatments today.

When co-owner Erin Azia at Defy Nature was asked why she chose the Candela Gentle Max Laser Hair removal system for her Med Spa clients, she responded, “Not all laser hair removal technology is the same. The GMax is the most powerful, effective, painless system available for all skin tones.” As an example, unlike the Gentle Max System, IPL hair removal machines are not recommended on skin that has had sun exposure since the results can cause hyper-pigmentation (white spots). And with the Gentle Max you will see up to an 80% permanent hair reduction after just three treatments.

But will it hurt? The general consensus is that laser hair removal hurts far less than waxing. It’s often compared to feeling a quick, light snap from a rubber band. With the Gentle Max, a cooling spray occurs prior to every hit so the patient should only feel minor discomfort.

How much discomfort? It’s largely based on your personal pain tolerance and the area of the body being treated. Erin added, “We offer a our clients a prescription numbing cream with the highest quality available that is applied one hour prior to the procedure.”

However, some patients choose not to apply it after their first visit. Erin often hears, “It wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be.”

The bottom line is there is nothing to fear about laser hair removal. After seeing the amazing results, you will totally see it is worth it. Call Defy Nature at “860-442-4347” for your complimentary consultation.
