What does a laser treatment feel like? Will it hurt?

Each laser procedure is unique. Preparation, procedure, and recovery times may vary. However, there are some things you can generally expect from all laser procedures. So, let’s get to the big question: Does it hurt?

Our patients are often surprised to find that their laser treatment is relatively painless. Those who do experience a sensation compare it to a mild shock, as if someone were lightly snapping a rubber band on your skin.

While most treatments do not require pain management, there are plenty of options for those concerned about the possible pain of their treatment and your provider will answer any questions you have about discomfort and healing. Depending on the type of laser being used and the treatment you are seeking, a topical numbing agent may be used to ensure your comfort.

Not only are the laser treatments relatively painless–they are not enormous time investments! Each laser treatment ranges from 15 to 40 minutes on average, which is something our patients universally love. The nature of treatment at Ava MD is an exceptional fit for anyone with a busy schedule, making laser treatments even more accessible.

After My Treatment, Will I See Results Right Away?

Depending on the treatment you’d like, an Ava MD professional will work with you to create a treatment and recovery plan that meets your needs. Once you’ve wrapped up a laser treatment session at Ava MD, you’ll likely see the difference as soon as you sit up! As you begin the recovery process, the results will only shine through clearer. The rewards of treatment continue to appear days, weeks, and even months later.
