It’s a common question we get at the clinic, and the answer is yes – but with a few caveats.
Laser hair removal works by targeting the pigment in the hair follicle with a burst of laser light. The heat from the laser damages the follicle, which inhibits future hair growth. So, each time you have a treatment, the follicle becomes weaker and weaker, and the hair becomes finer and thinner. As a result, the pain does lessen with each treatment as the follicle becomes less active.
However, there are a few things to keep in mind. First, laser hair removal is most effective on dark hair. So, if you have lighter hair, it may take more treatments to see results. Second, the pain is relative. Some people feel no pain at all, while others may find it slightly uncomfortable. But overall, the pain is much less than it was when you first started treatment.
If you’re considering laser hair removal, be sure to consult with a professional to see if it’s right for you.
