To answer this question, it is necessary to know the procedure and the effect of the laser on the skin in different parts of the body. This technique is a relatively new method of hair removal.
It is based on the ability of melanin, which is contained in the hair follicle, to absorb laser rays and convert it into heat. The laser has a special tip that continuously cools the skin, making the treatment almost painless. Different parts of the body react differently to the laser. The intensity of painful sensations depends mainly on the pain threshold and is very individual. If you still have a high pain threshold, then you can avoid pain.
Before treating the underarms and bikini area, a special gel is applied to the skin to minimize discomfort. Almost all preparations contain lidocaine, which is widely used in medicine. If there is an intolerance to this component, you must immediately inform a specialist. They will choose an alternative option or another method of pain relief.
Taking pills before laser hair removal is ineffective. It works on the whole body, while it is necessary to treat a separate area. Medicines often suppress pain locally and do not work everywhere.
