Does IPL hurt?

IPL hair removal can be painful. This is dependent on your skin structure and pain tolerance levels, therefore it varies from person to person.

Many people have compared it to being stung with a fingernail, while others have compared it to having a tattoo or being stung with a little rubber band.

IPL is less unpleasant than laser hair removal, but the level of discomfort you experience will vary depending on your body type.

Many professional IPL devices include an integrated cooling system that actively cools the skin while the equipment is in use.

This significantly lowers any discomfort experienced throughout the procedure.

IPL can also be adjusted to a lower intensity to alleviate discomfort. Lowering the intensity levels, on the other hand, will have an impact on the effectiveness of the results.

As a result, it's largely a trade-off between what your pain threshold can handle and what you want to do in a given time limit.
