With our laser, the Alma Soprano, the treatment first feels very cold- the tip is like an ice cube running over your skin which helps to cool the skin. After 10-20 seconds you feel a little warmth then a little pulling, tweezing sensation where the hairs are located. That feeling is the laser penetrating down the hair and going into the follicle which is what will damage the hair follicle and bulb. The feeling is not painful. If your pain tolerance is low you may think that it feels a little uncomfortable but no one feels that it is painful. Some even feel that it just feels like a hot stone massage.
