Laser hair removal too hot, low pain threshold or incorrect technique?
Hello, thank you for your question. Laser hair reduction can definitely be hot. It's the follicles that are actually absorbing the heat of the laser, the more follicles in the area, the more heat. Most laser devices have cryogen cooling spray as part of the laser pulse, this cools the surface of the skin making the treatment more comfortable. Topical numbing is not recommended as it is very "topical" and the hair follicles are deep in the dermis. You can always ask the laser technician to slow down a little bit if it is too uncomfortable.
