Do the laser treatments hurt?
With laser therapy, there is always some anxiety. Our clinic gets questions such as, “Will it hurt?” "Or is it safe?”
Before receiving a new type of care that you might not be fully comfortable with, it is understandable to be reluctant or worried.
We can assure you that laser therapy does NOT hurt and it IS totally safe.
Despite widespread skepticism, laser treatments are absolutely pain-free. You will experience little or no sensation at all when you undergo laser treatment, depending on the type of laser that is being used.
A soft, calming warmth from the laser is what you can experience, which many patients report as relaxing.
Typically, procedures last from 2-10 minutes, and after only a few short sessions, patients begin to see results.
