Laser treatment is gentle and nearly pain-free. The laser beam feels like a pinch on the skin. In areas where the hair is dark, coarse, or thick, more sensation may be felt. The pinch lasts just for a fraction of a second and may feel like a rubber band being snapped on the skin. In some areas, there is no pinching feeling at all. After treatment, the area may be sensitive or itchy.
Numbing cream is not needed for this treatment. At the time of the treatment we will cool the skin using our Sapphire Cooling Tip. This will reduce any discomfort as well as decrease the risk of skin irritation or pigmentation. However, if you feel like you could experience discomfort, we can add numbing cream by request. The cream will be applied thirty minutes prior to the procedure.
