Is laser hair removal safe?

Laser-hair-removal treatments are generally regarded as very safe, though some minor side effects such as redness and irritation are possible. If you're worried about post treatment discomfort, your technician may be able to provide a numbing balm for use afterward. Additionally, you may be asked to avoid the sun for a short time following treatment and to use sunscreen liberally.

Do I need to do anything special before or between treatments?

Does laser hair removal hurt?
