A growing number of patients are simplifying their lives by undergoing laser hair removal. This convenient treatment in Nashville can permanently relieve you of the need to shave, pluck, or wax to remove unwanted hair. Think of how much time you have spent in your life performing these tedious tasks. You can free up this time to take part in activities that you really enjoy with only a few simple treatments.
What is Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal is an innovative cosmetic technique in Nashville involving the use of a laser to destroy hair follicles producing unwanted hair in the treatment area. We direct the laser to transmit focused light energy into hair follicles, destroying them and preventing the growth of hair in the future.
Multiple hair removal treatment sessions allow us to catch each individual hair when it happens to be in a growth cycle. A hair follicle in a dormant phase does not have a hair present for the laser to focus on. One hair follicle may be in a growth phase while a neighboring follicle is in a dormant phase.
What Happens During a Laser Hair Removal Procedure?
You should avoid plucking, waxing, or electrolysis in the weeks leading up to your treatment since the laser requires the presence of a hair within a hair follicle to be effective. You should also avoid prolonged sun exposure both before and after your treatment. This can limit the effectiveness of the procedure or cause complications after it.
We begin your procedure by shaving down the hair within the treatment area. You and your technician may be required to wear protective eye wear during your treatment. Next, the technician will adjust the equipment to match the color of your hair and other factors. The technician will then direct the laser to transmit focused light energy into hair follicles producing unwanted hair.
Am I a Good Candidate for This Procedure?
Virtually anyone looking to reduce unwanted hair growth makes a good candidate for this procedure. At your consultation, our professionals can discuss with you the specific requirements that may hinder you from this procedure. If necessary, we may use a topical anesthetic prior to treatment to ensure your comfort, although most patients report this treatment feels like a rubber band snapping against the skin.
