Does Laser Hair Removal Hurt

Is Laser Hair Removal Harmful?

When it comes to laser hair removal, there is one question that typically tops everyone’s mind: does laser hair removal hurt?

We’re here to let it be known that no, laser hair removal Fort Lauderdale does not have to hurt. That may have been the case years ago, but that was when previous hair removal methods did not use the current state-of-the-art technology that we have at our fingertips today. 

Procedures Used at Fox Vein & Laser Experts For Laser Hair Removal

At Fox Vein & Laser Experts, we use the gold standard in professional laser hair removal with a device called the GentleMax Pro. This technology is an industry leader in the Miami laser hair removal category, proving successful for patients of all skin types. It is known for providing a much more comfortable experience than other laser devices on the market. 

The entire treatment is virtually pain-free. You may feel a slight pricking feeling on your skin, but that’s about it. If you are sensitive and worried about feeling uncomfortable during the treatment, there is no need to worry. Our team can provide you with a numbing cream to apply to the area being treated about 30 minutes beforehand. Side effects are also very minimal. At most, you may experience redness or small bumps, but these typically disappear very quickly, within a few minutes to maybe an hour, depending on how sensitive your skin is and the area treated. 

There is no downtime needed, and sessions can be as short as 10 minutes. Quick, pain-free, convenient enough to do on your lunch break… Laser hair removal at Fox Vein & Laser Experts is a no-brainer. 

You’re probably wondering how it’s possible that this device can zap your skin with laser energy without causing any pain. It seems like it could be too good to be true, but it’s not. The GentleMax Pro delivers extremely quick bursts of laser energy to the skin, which means that it doesn’t stay directly on the skin for long periods of time, and that has a significant effect on just how much pain the patient experiences.

What Conditions Can the GentleMax PRO Laser Treat?

The laser is also strong enough to destroy hair follicles in a shorter amount of time, meaning fewer visits are needed for maximum results. GentleMax is one of the most effective and gentle machines for laser hair removal.

Laser hair removal pain is nothing to worry about when you book your appointments using the GentleMaxPro at Fox Vein & Laser Experts. 


You’re more likely to feel more pain and discomfort during a waxing appointment than you will with laser hair removal. Even tweezing and shaving can cause pain. These methods of laser hair removal have the potential to cause harm to the skin via razor burn, irritated bumps, ingrown hairs, wax burns, and infections — and all of these things can be painful. Laser hair removal allows you the opportunity to lessen the risk for all of these things, and increase your chances for smooth, hair-free skin that never has to worry about seeing a razor again.
