How does laser hair removal work?
Does it hurt?
You might assume that laser hair treatment would be a painful experience. In reality, patients who go through with this procedure only experience temporary pain. Some equate the feeling to be like a hot “snap”. In fact, patients aren’t even put under anesthesia in most circumstances. If you wax 4-6 times a year, imagine having laser hair removal 6 times and being almost hair free.
How long will it take?
The length of a hair removal treatment depends on how much hair is being removed and the location of the hair. Individual treatments can take anywhere from several minutes to a few hours. But, patients may need to return for several treatments. Hair removal treatment only targets growing hair, and not all hair on the body grows at the same time.
