What Does Laser Hair Removal Feel Like?
You may have heard about laser hair removal from friends or online, and heard that it can be painful. And yes, that used to be true, but not so much anymore and definitely not at Spa Nala!
Here, we utilize the state-of-the-art Cutera excel HR™ laser to ensure you feel as little as possible during your sessions. Let’s take a look at how laser hair removal works, and what you can really expect to feel when you come in for your sessions. Contact us today to learn more and ask questions!
How It Feels
For the best reaction when using lasers to remove body or facial hair, you should stop waxing or tweezing at least six weeks before laser hair removal treatment starts. However, you should shave the areas you’ll be treating within 24 hours of your next session.
At Spa Nala, we use the Cutera excel HR™ laser, which is the most comfortable laser available commercially. This laser utilizes sapphire contact cooling to keep your skin cool and comfortable throughout the session, so only the hair shaft under your skin is heated.
Your certified laser technician will hold the laser in place on your skin for a second or so, and you’ll hear a faint buzzing noise, but you’ll barely feel a thing. If you do feel any discomfort at all, the temperature of the laser is adjustable, just ask your technician.
Unlike some other lasers, the Cutera excel HR™ is safe to use on all skin types, no matter how dark your skin or light your hair.
One session usually takes less than one hour to complete. Depending on the size of the area, it could take as few as five minutes. Usually you will need multiple sessions before most of the hair in your treatment area will be removed. No recovery time is needed after your session, you can return to your normal routine immediately.
