Laser Hair Removal in Brentwood, TN

Are you tired of tedious waxing, shaving or tweezing to get rid of body hair? If so, you should consider laser hair removal as an alternative. Laser technology has revolutionized cosmetic and surgical procedures, and Cool Springs MD offers safe and effective laser hair removal so that you no longer need to shave, wax or live with unwanted hair. Laser hair removal is so effective that many men and women in Brentwood, Nashville and nearby towns in Tennessee have permanent hair removal.

Laser hair removal is among the most common cosmetic procedures performed in the United States. This method uses strong beams of light to target hair follicles. The light is absorbed by pigmentation inside the follicles, killing the hair.

What is Laser Hair Removal?

Laser hair removal utilizes an extremely powerful pulsating light beam, or laser, to eliminate unwanted hair on various parts of your body. During the procedure, the laser penetrates the skin harmlessly and settles on the follicle. The heat created by the beam destroys the follicle, which prevents hair from growing back.

People who have dark hair with light skin are the best candidates for this hair removal procedure.

The laser will permanently destroy the hair follicles that are in the growth phase of the hair cycle ensuring that the hair will never grow back in that follicle.  In most cases, a series of treatments are needed to keep hair at bay for any significant amount of time. While laser hair removal is a highly effective way to control hair growth, dormant follicles can awaken and require touch-up treatments.  Furthermore, you may require the occasional maintenance procedure to ensure continued results.

Why Should I Consider Laser Hair Removal?

The goal of laser hair removal is to abolish unwanted body hair. Some of the most common treatment sites include the underarms, chin, legs, bikini area, back and upper lip. Laser hair removal can be performed virtually anywhere on the body aside from the area around your eyes.

Both your skin type and hair color will determine how effective the treatments are. For instance, people with dark hair and light skin will see better results. This is because melanin, the pigment responsible for dark hair color, is particularly adept at absorbing the laser’s energy. Fortunately, technological advancements in the field have resulted in effective laser hair removal treatments for dark-skinned individuals.

In general, laser hair removal is ineffective for people with red, white, gray or blonde hair. However, experts are currently working on ways to make this possible.

How Laser Hair Removal Works

Laser hair removal works when the laser energy travels down the hair follicle. It reaches the matrix cells around the hair shafts which are in the growth phase. Those follicles are permanently altered by the laser and are no longer able to produce new hairs.

Laser hair removal requires a series of treatments to be effective because the hair follicles will grow at different stages. Sticking with an overall treatment strategy saves you money while being most effective in hair removal.

Benefits of Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal is an ideal way to get rid of hair on the arms, legs, bikini area, face, underarms and several other places. Some laser hair removal benefits include:

  • Precision: The laser targets only the dark hairs and their follicles without harming the skin around them.
  • Speed: Every pulse of light from the laser takes only an instant and is capable of destroying several hairs in one pulse. Our lasers are able to remove hair from a quarter-sized area of skin each second. Smaller locations, such as the chin, usually take under one minute to treat. Larger areas, such as the chest, legs or back, can take as long as one hour.
  • Reliability: For the majority of clients, hair removal becomes permanent within six to eight treatments.

Which Areas Can Be Treated?

With laser hair removal, essentially any area on the body can be treated. Common treatment areas include lip or chin, cheeks, between brows, legs, back, chin, neck front or back, chest, bikini area or Brazilian.

Pre-Treatment Preparation

Do not wax or tweeze any of the areas where you wish to have laser hair removal performed at least two to four weeks prior. In fact, leaving two to three day’s growth is ideal. It helps the laser more effectively target the chromophore (melanin) and eliminate the hair follicle once and for all. This will help the laser better identify the target hair follicles.
