Is Laser Hair Removal Painful?


A popular question asked this week was, “ Is laser hair removal painful.”

Thus, based on popular demand. I’ve carried out research and have put together this article.

And just in case you do not know.

Lasers hair removal is one of many available treatments for removing unwanted hair.

This technique uses light technology to cause damage to the hair follicles.

Thus, preventing future hair growth for a relatively long period of time. I.e. Until the hair follicles are healed.

This treatment can either be carried out;

• At the comfort of your home use a DIY Laser device.

• At a Clinic under a trained dermatologist.


Yes, laser hair removal is painful.

Most people describe this pain as one felt when a” Rubber band is snapping against the skin.”

But this pain is dependent on;

• Your pain tolerance: As a good number of people would not consider the discomfort experienced as pain.

• Body part where the treatment occurs.

• The level of skin sensitivity.

Using lasers at the armpit causes the most pain.

This is because, the skin in that area, is very thin.

When you use lasers in areas like the face or bikini, you might experience more pain.

But, not like that experienced when used on the armpit.

This is because these areas are more sensitive to other body parts.

Using lasers at the back of the chest is also as painful as laser hair removal on the face or bikini line.

This is because the back area contains very little amount of hair.
