Numbing Cream for Laser Hair Removal

Waxing, shaving, and threading seem to be too old methods for hair removal, right?

So, what is new in the trend? It is use of laser technology his has made it possible to get rid of those unwanted hair, and that too for a longer duration.

As far as the working of laser hair removal systems is concerned, these include emission of a gentle beam of light which when passes through the skin removes the hair follicle. Actually, your hair absorbs the energy from the laser which is then transformed into heat and helps disabling the hair follicle.

No, not at all! Electrolysis is somehow a tedious and more painful process. It includes destroying hair follicle one at a time. Hence, one has to undergo various treatments to get the complete solution. On the contrary, laser hair removal can easily treat hundreds of hair follicles simultaneously. Thus, it is a time saving and more efficient process.

As such there is no fixed time limit for a laser hair removal treatment. Reason being, it will vary from person to person, depending on the skin type, hair coloring, coarseness of hair, and so on.

However, if you just need a rough estimate, here is a helping guide;

  • Shoulders- 10 to 20 minutes
  • Chin- 2 to 3 minutes
  • Underarms- 1 to 2 minutes
  • Bikini Line- 8 to 10 minutes
  • Upper lip- Less than 1 minute
  • Back- 1.5 to 3 hours
  • Legs- 1.5 to 3 hours

Plus, it is worth noticing that you might need at least 2 to 3 treatments for 100% results.

This is the most frequently asked question. And luckily the answer is YES. Basically, the method employs lasers which make use of a wavelength of light which passes through the skin. No, it is not like those x-rays, and there will be no residual left in the body.

Your skin may appear pink or red after the session, but this is temporary and it will disappear in few minutes. In case, it stays for a bit longer, don’t panic, you can apply cold packs to speed up the recovery time.

Another major concern is the pain caused during the process. The silent fact is that it can be painful. How much? This will vary from person to person, depending on their threshold level. While few described the sensation of laser hair removal as a slight sting, for others it has proved to be a terrible experience.

If you are among those who fear from pain a lot, you need to look for a solution which help cutting down the pain from process. You can switch to Dr. Numb, one of the best numbing creams which come with 5% lidocaine. Being a topical anesthetic it works by blocking the pain signals at the skin’s surface.

I have used this to pre numb my clients prior to microblading. Works amazingly for some clients, but not all which is super normal. Everyone reacts differently, but for the most part have had great results!

~ Carolina Sanchez

I have used this for many sessions. You CAN'T FEEL ANYTHING for the first bit. It slowly wears off after a bit, but that's to be expected. Highly recommended. I'm buying another tube soon.

~ Ryan Bell

I use Dr. Numb for all my microblading clients. I was previously using a gel that was not near as effective as Dr. Numb. I 100% recommend to all the other permanent makeup artist out there. Thank you from me and my clients. The best in the biz!
