Is laser hair removal painful?

It's normal to feel some slight discomfort, such as in sensitive areas (like your underarms), but you shouldn't be in pain. Most men and women explain that laser hair removal feels like tiny rubber bands flicking your skin.

It's helpful to apply a topical numbing cream, which you can get over-the-counter from your local pharmacy, before heading in for your treatment at LH Spa & Rejuvenation. This way, your skin is thoroughly numbed by your appointment time. As an alternative, you can apply an ice pack to have the same effect.
