What Is Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal is a popular aesthetic treatment to permanently alter the natural hair growth cycle. This non-surgical, non-invasive treatment harnesses the power of laser energy to damage hair follicles, limiting their ability to grow hair.
Laser hair removal may be performed on virtually any area of the body. Popular treatment areas include:
- Bikini area
- Facial areas
It is important to keep in mind some hair may still grow, but it will not be as thick as before treatment.
What Could I Expect from the Treatment Process?
Laser hair removal treatments are performed on an outpatient basis in the comfort of our Tennessee offices. During these sessions, a device is used to deliver laser energy to the treatment area. The energy of the laser targets the hair follicle, damaging it. Once the hair follicle is damaged, it cannot function as well as it once did. This prevents hair from growing as quickly or fully as it once did.
These laser treatments are often short, but the length of treatment will vary based on the size of the treatment area. More than one area may be addressed during a treatment session, but it is important to shave the area prior to your treatment. There is minimal discomfort associated with the treatment process, but you may experience a mild warmth. While there is no downtime associated with a session, there may be some redness in the area.
It is important to remember that laser hair removal may not permanently remove hair. While results will vary for each person and area treated, this treatment often provides initial results after the first treatment. Hair should grow back more slowing, but a series of treatments may be recommended for the best results.
Could I Benefit from Treatment?
Laser hair removal is an extremely diverse treatment option. It offers potential benefits for both men and women, and most generally healthy adults may qualify as candidates. This aesthetic treatment may be safely formed on a wide range of hair and skin tones and types. However, it may be better suited for certain hair and skin types than others.
A consultation with our professionals in Henderson or Murfreesboro can help determine if this treatment option is a good fit for you. They will work with you to develop your personalized treatment plan to achieve the best results.
