What Does Laser Hair Removal Feel Like on the Skin?

By July 6, 2023No Comments

Laser hair removal is used for the long-term removal of body and facial hair, cutting down on the need for daily shaving or weekly and bi-weekly waxing. And it can be performed from head to toe.

Many clients are concerned about how painful laser hair removal may be. At Soha Spa and Wellness in Gaithersburg, MD, our team is dedicated to providing you with the best experience possible.

Keep reading to find out what this procedure feels like and if laser hair removal hurts.

How does laser hair removal work?

The team at Soha Spa and Wellness will ensure the safe and fast removal of hair in areas including the back, legs, arms, face, chest, and intimate areas.

Our team uses state-of-the-art laser technology, Soprano® ICE Platinum by Alma lasers. All that’s required from you is to sit back and relax as we cleanse the treatment area, smooth out your skin to pull it taut, and apply the laser.

The goal is to focus the laser’s energy on the root of the hair follicle. This disables further growth, and the hair already inside will fall out over the coming weeks and not come back.

To get optimal results, most clients require 3 – 5 treatments over 3 – 4 weeks to target every hair follicle in the treatment area, especially larger areas such as legs. That’s mostly because the growth phases of hair follicles are not synced up, and the follicles need to be targeted in a specific growth phase.

Does laser hair removal hurt?

Your laser hair removal treatment is private so you can speak openly with the Soha Spa and Wellness team during treatment. Laser hair removal is not considered painful, and new lasers are better designed to target only the follicle and not any of the skin or tissue in the surrounding area.

Most of what you can expect to feel is the pulling of skin as our team members smooth out your skin to create a path to the follicle’s root. In the past, clients sometimes felt a snapping sensation, but many lasers now have a cooling mechanism to prevent this feeling.
