Does Laser Hair Removal Hurt?

Learn if laser hair removal hurts from Completely Bare owner (and former Real Housewife of NYC) Cindy Barshop in this Howcast video.


I constantly get the question, "Does laser hair removal work?" It doesn't make a difference where I am, if I'm in a restaurant or if I'm at the grocery store, people stop and always ask that question.

Yes. It hurts a little but there's a difference. I always try to make the comparison that it hurts less than a wax and it also doesn't have like a lingering type of pain, so you feel it and it goes away. But then again, we always hear 'No pain, no gain'.

The first time you go it hurts and the next time you go it hurts less and it keeps getting that way because you keep removing the hair and there's less hair there. The less coarse the hair, the less it hurts.

Also, at Completely Bare we have a certain way and certain wavelength that we do. It should not be excruciating pain. But the technician should be able to take your comfort level and make sure that you get the best results with the least amount of pain.
