A lot of people wonder what it's like to get laser hair removal. Does it hurt? How bad is it? What can be done to minimize the pain? Hopefully this blog post can answer a few of these questions for you.
Laser hair removal can be somewhat painful. Most people compare it to the pain of being snapped by a rubber band. There are a few things that we do here at Simplicity Laser to help make sure that your treatments are as comfortable as possible.
The first thing that we use to help minimize the pain of laser hair removal is top of the line lasers. By using the latest and greatest lasers on the market, we are able to provide a much more comfortable experience for our clients. We currently utilize the Candela Gentlemax Pro and Candela ND:Yag lasers for all of our clients. These two lasers are unparalleled in the results and comfort that they are able to deliver our clients, which is why they use them across all of our clinics.
Another investment that Simplicity Laser has made for the comfort of our clients is a machine known as a 'Zimmer'. These machines are specially designed to deliver cool air to the surface of your skin, helping to decrease skin sensitivity before the pulse and then also calming the surface of the skin after the pulse has been delivered.
The last line of comfort products that Simplicity Laser employs is the products that we offer. We offer only the best products to help protect and repair your skin. The best products to help with the pain of laser are our restorative gel and numbing cream.
The numbing cream uses 4% lidocaine to help desensitize the area that will be treated. The best use of this is to apply it roughly 30 minutes before your appointment and then sit back and enjoy the soothing sensation of not being in pain.
The restorative gel is best used post-treatment. It helps to soothe the skin immediately, and begins the process of repairing your skin after the treatments. It is an incredible asset that can help reduce inflammation, redness, and tenderness while also making sure that your skin is ready for your next laser hair removal treatment.
