What should I expect in a hair removal procedure?
You will wear eye protection during your hair removal procedure. A topical anesthetic may be applied so you are comfortable during the process. A hand-held laser instrument is applied to the skin. It may have a cooling device on the tip, or a cooling gel applied to protect your skin. You may feel a sensation similar to a warm pinprick when the doctor activates the laser and the beam passes through your skin to the hair follicles. The procedure time will reflect the size and number of areas treated.
