1. THE PROCESS SEEMS DIFFICULT, BUT ACTUALLY IT’S NOT
Laser hair removal works by transmitting laser light through the pigment in the hair, explains Dr. Daron Seukeran, Group Medical Director at the skin clinic. “This (light) causes damage to the hair follicle and hair bulb because it converts to heat.” It was a short, intense pain that was especially painful on the thinner skin near my chin, nose, and temples. Hopefully the lasers used on me had a cooling system (basically, a continuously flowing cold blast of air exactly where the laser was pointing), which was extremely beneficial. I often found it more difficult if my body temperature was elevated as a result of rushing around town to reach my appointment on time.
