In fact, laser hair removal is not a very painful procedure. However, there is a slight pain in the hair follicles during the laser session. This is normal. Because the laser turns into heat in the hair follicles. Therefore, it is normal to feel slight pain in the hair follicles. If you can endure the pain of waxing, you can easily endure this pain. Also, the pain disappears in seconds.
The hair in the genital area, that is, in the private area, is usually thick. This is why there is a pain when the roots are affected. But this pain is very temporary and mild. For example, you will feel less pain than with an epilator or waxing.
Yes, laser hair removal is not completely painless. But a very short-term pain is felt. It is natural to feel this pain while the hair follicles are burning. Usually no anaesthesia is required. Even just applying a cold compress is enough.
This question is a bit exaggerated. There really isn’t much pain anyway. But laser hair removal is really worth it. Because it is possible to get rid of hair for life.
First of all, if everything is done correctly and properly, the answer is yes. So we want to say the following. Go to a professional center where doctors work. Prefer centers that have different laser types. For example, diode and alexandrite lasers are the lasers available in our centers. In addition, these lasers should be used in effective doses. If all these are together, it is possible to get rid of hair.
Is Laser Hair Removal Painful?

It is actually a very sudden and passing pain.
This is true to some extent if the hair is coarse and thick in the first session. But there is absolutely no unbearable pain. It can even be called painless compared to other methods. Also, as the sessions progress, the pain decreases a lot.

Özge *** Fenerbahçe Istanbul December 2020
Answer: Yes, you are actually right. The nerve and sensory structure in the facial area is much more sensitive. For this reason, the face area is one of the sensitive areas like the genital area. For laser epilation in the face area, we prefer Diode laser, that is, ice laser. If the cold ice effect of the Diode lasers on the head is used correctly, it completely reduces your pain. For example, when you hit something, or when something burns, you immediately apply ice. This has two purposes. The first is to reduce the pain and the second is to prevent the formation of edema in that area. For this reason, we use lasers called head-cooled or ice-effective lasers when performing laser on the face.
