Pain - Pain is constantly associated with hair removal from anywhere physically. You can have varying levels of pain all through and for a brief period with IPL following the procedure. Often there is a burning sensation but that is quite tolerable and unusually light and is only really short lived. There's a slight danger of of swelling around the treated area, particularly in the event the area is specially sensitive. However when you compare the pain to that particular of waxing its effect diminishes considerably.
