Laser hair removal is a popular procedure that has quickly become mainstream due to its efficiency. By using laser energy, the treatment precisely targets and destroys follicles responsible for hair growth.
What is laser hair removal?
The laser works by targeting and destroying the hair follicles in the treated area with a strong beam of light energy. This can cause mild discomfort, usually in the form of a tingling or stinging sensation during the procedure, often described as feeling like a rubber band being flicked against skin. Following treatment, it's normal for the area to feel slightly red or swollen, although this should subside within a few hours. In subsequent days following the completion of treatment, some shedding of treated hairs may be observed.
