Does Laser Hair Removal Hurt?

Some people have emailed me and asked me the following question “Does laser hair removal surgery hurt?” While there is usually at least some level of discomfort in almost all types of surgical procedures, I can say that when it comes to laser hair removal surgery, it generally does not result in a lot of pain. The reason is because of the depth at which the laser is used on. The laser will usually not reach more than 2 mm deep into the skin. There will be some nerve endings that are at that level, but most of them will not detect the laser being shined on the skin. Remember that laser is just the concentrated form of the usual light which we feel.
