Is Laser Hair Removal Painful or Pain free????
With so many mixed reviews now that really is a question and the answer is slightly confusing. The answer is yes and no!
Is Laser Hair Removal painful?
There are a lot of different machines on the market for laser hair removal and yes a lot of them can be painful but the one we use here at Havana Skin Clinic is fortunately not painful.
The device we use is incredibly smart, we use the LightSheer Duet by Lumenis and it works by using a vacuum technology which suppresses the nerve endings and so reduces the pain levels.
Here’s what Caroline had to say,
“The laser is not travelling through your nerves and so you’ll feel a lot less pain. We’re also pulling the hair follicle a lot closer to the laser meaning that the intensity of the heat doesn’t need to be as aggressive so treatments are a lot more comfortable and it’s 75% faster than any other laser and there’s less irritation on the skin and down time with the laser being a diode laser meaning that the heat is heating up from the base of the hair shaft and travelling up to the surface of the skin as opposed to heating from the surface of the skin down to the hair shaft.”

Most clients experience slight discomfort on more sensitive areas and little to no pain on their legs. In fact some clients like the sensation the laser has on their legs.
