Often times people hold off on getting laser hair removal treatments because they’ve heard stories about how painful it is. If you’re a little sensitive and wonder if laser hair removal hurts you should take a few points into consideration.
You Are An Individual
You will have a different pain tolerance that your friends and family members. Just because they were completely at ease or uncomfortable it doesn’t mean that you will have the same experience.
Which Part Of Your Body Do You Want To Work On?
Your body part feel the laser hair removal treatments differently.
Are You A Man Or Woman?
Most men are simply more sensitive to the treatments because they tend to have thicker and denser hairs in general so they will feel it much more than women. We haven’t had anyone run out screaming yet though so it’s still bearable.
How Thick, Dark And Dense Are Your Hairs
The thicker, darker and denser the hairs the more you will feel the treatments because the laser can see them better. However, the good news is that your results will be worth the discomfort.
Are You On Your Period?
When it’s that time of the month your body is simply more sensitive to every sensation. Although you should be able to get your treatments done with only the slightest discomfort, we do recommend delaying a bikini or brazilian treatment.
