If I wanted to get my lower legs done, would I need to shave/not shave before coming in? Also, is it painful?

Hey Lindsay, Another great question! Any area of the body that is to be treated definitely needs to be shaved the night before or day of the treatment. This ensures that the laser can travel all the way down the hair follicle into the root bulb destroying it. As for the sensation of laser hair removal, it feels like a hot rubber band is pulsing on your skin. We use a topical numbing creme approximately 15-20 minutes prior to treatment. Our laser also has a contacting cooling unit that we use to cool the skin before we deliver the pulse. Most of our clients like to bring an IPOD and listen to their favorite music while the treatment is going on. And you will love the results and so will your old razor!
