Continue reading to learn all about painless hair removal, including how it works and why it’s better than conventional LHR treatments.

Does Laser Hair Removal Hurt?

Prior to undergoing LHR, many women and men want to know: Does laser hair removal hurt?

The answer to this question often depends on the patient’s tolerance for pain, technology used, and specialist skill and experience.

Conventional lasers typically use massive amounts of heat to target and destroy hair follicles beneath the skin. This can result in a snapping sensation and may produce mild and temporary discomfort.

At Prolase, we are pleased to offer our patients the latest laser hair removal technology that effectively eliminates unwanted hair, without pain or unwanted side effects.

What Is Painless Laser Hair Removal and How Does It Work?

Painless laser hair removal uses cutting-edge technology to safely and gently heat hair follicles in the sub-dermal layer of skin.

By applying low levels of heat, at a fast rate, and employing a built-in cooling mechanism, painless laser hair removal maintains patient comfort throughout the entire procedure.

Most women and men say that the treatment feels similar to a hot stone massage and love that it is so quick and easy.

Small areas, like the lip, chin, and underarms, usually take just five-to-15 minutes. Larger areas, such as the legs, chest, and back, can be completed in 20-30 minutes.
