Does Laser Hair Removal Hurt? See How It’s Done

What is laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal is a progressive hair removal technique done using the laser’s light energy. The technique is also commonly called permanent hair removal, however, this name is incorrect, as hair removal does not guarantee that hair will not grow back. The best term to use is long-term hair removal.

How is the procedure performed?

The procedure is performed with the use of a laser emitting device, imposed exactly on the hair to be eliminated. In laser hair removal, the target is melanin, the substance responsible for the coloring of the bulb and the hair shaft, causing minimal thermal damage to the adjacent tissue. In people who are very sensitive to pain, we can use anesthetic creams.

When the laser pulse is triggered, energy photons are absorbed by melanin. The absorbed heat is released by the bulb and the hair shaft, causing thermal destruction of the hair structures.

 

When is the procedure indicated?

Laser hair removal can be done by anyone who is uncomfortable with their hair or with other hair removal methods, like wax or razor procedures. There are special indications for cases of ingrown hair in the groin, which ends up staining the region, as well as the face, legs or any other region of the body.

Over the years new technologies have been created, even black or tanned skin can do..
