Is Laser Hair Removal Painful?

Laser Hair Removal CerritosIt may be winter everywhere else – but here in Cerritos CA, it’s swimsuit weather most of the year-round. That could either mean having a daily date with your razor, or opting for a more convenient and effective method…laser hair removal!

Whether you’re in pursuit of smooth, hairless legs or want to remove hair from your back and shoulders, you can achieve those hair-free goals at Belle Vie Wellness & Medical Aesthetics in Cerritos, CA.

Of course, there’s always one question that our patients have when asking about our laser hair removal treatments: “Is laser hair removal painful?”

A New Generation of Laser Hair Removal

In previous years, the answer would have been yes – but today’s laser hair removal is faster, more effective, and surprisingly comfortable!

At Belle Vie, we use the Candela Gentlemax Pro for laser hair removal. This advanced laser technology is designed to impede the growth of hair follicles, which helps lengthen the time between shaves. When the laser is applied to the treatment area the hair follicles absorb the energy.

Over the course of your treatment, this absorption process kills the hair follicle, which is then dissolved or rejected by the body. The regrowth process happens within the next three to six weeks. Patients need approximately six or more treatment sessions before seeing permanent results.

What To Expect From Your Treatment

The procedure itself is comfortable as the device uses a unique cooling feature to help manage any heat energy. Be sure to shave the treatment area on the day before your procedure and avoid tanning and unprotected sun exposure for six week prior to treatment. Patients should also stop use of any tanning products for two weeks leading up to their laser hair removal session.

Being one of the fastest lasers on the market, hair removal sessions with the Candela Gentlemax Pro can range from a couple minutes to an hour. At Belle Vie, we can perform laser hair removal on your full body within one hour. If a sensitive area is being treated, a numbing cream can be applied to help manage any discomfort.

Patients can return to their normal activities immediately following their session. They may notice slight redness and swelling at the treatment site, but an ice pack can be used to help manage any swelling. The body will reject hair follicles within the treatment site approximately three weeks after the procedure.
