Is Laser Facial Hair Removal Safe?
Laser Hair Removal has come a long way in the past few years and with many advancements in laser technology and there are now treatment options to suit almost everyone. Laser Hair Removal is safer than it has ever been, however make sure that the clinic where you choose to have your laser treatment has the most up to date equipment and is state endorsed.
Your best two options are to research the Laser Hair Removal Clinic before booking your first consultation.

Your other option would be to opt for a laser hair removal device that you can use at home. A great example would be the Bareskin IPL Laser Hair removal device. Works exactly like the devices you would find at the laser hair removal clinic but much cheaper.
What does Laser Hair Removal Feel Like?
You will be asked to lie down and put on protective eye wear or glasses. When you are prepared for the laser treatment a single pulse is released from the laser which feels similar to the snap of a rubber band. After the initial ‘snap’ feeling you might experience some heat coming from the treated area and it may also become slightly red. Inform the technician providing the laser hair removal treatment if you feel excessively uncomfortable or experience more pain than described here.
How Long Does that Feeling Last?
This sensation or feeling of heat, redness and slight sensitivity can vary between individuals depending on the area of the face being treated and your hair type. You can expect this sensation to last from a few minutes to a few hours. Most people do not find this too unsettling though; and are usually able to resume normal activities immediately after the laser treatment.
