Eliminate unwanted hair in Hendersonville

Laser hair removal is a non-invasive cosmetic procedure that uses intense light beams to target and destroy hair follicles. The pigment in the hair absorbs the laser energy, damaging the follicle and preventing regrowth. This method is effective for all skin types and can remove hair from various areas of the body, including the face, underarms, legs, and bikini area.

How does laser hair removal work?

Laser hair removal uses a high-powered laser device to emit beams of light that target the melanin in hair follicles, effectively destroying them at the root. The heat generated by the laser energy is absorbed by the pigments in the hair, causing damage to the follicle and preventing future hair growth. It’s a safe and effective procedure suitable for all skin types, but the number of treatments required depends on your hair and skin color.

Your laser hair removal process

Your laser hair removal process will begin with a consultation with a qualified professional who will evaluate your skin type, hair color, and the area you wish to treat. They will also explain the process to you and answer any questions. Before the treatment, you will be advised to avoid sun exposure and to shave the area to be treated. This helps the laser energy target the hair follicles more effectively.

During the procedure, a handheld laser device will be held against your skin, emitting beams of light that target the melanin in your hair follicles. The heat generated by the laser energy will damage the follicles, preventing future hair growth. Depending on the size of the area to be treated, the procedure can take anywhere from a few minutes to an hour. You might feel a warm sensation like a rubber band snapping against your skin, but there’s no pain.

Post-treatment side effects and aftercare

After laser hair removal, you may experience mild redness, swelling, and a warm sensation in the treated area. These side effects should subside within a few hours. Please avoid sun exposure, hot baths or showers, and exfoliating or waxing the treated area for at least 24 hours. You can also apply a cooling gel or cream to the treated area to reduce discomfort. Furthermore, you must wear SPF 30+ sunscreen when exposed to direct sunlight.

How many laser hair removal sessions do I need?

Typically, the number of sessions you need may range from 6-10 sessions, with a gap of 4-6 weeks between each session. Multiple sessions are needed as hair goes through different growth stages, and not all hair follicles are active simultaneously. A laser can only target the hair in the active growth phase, so multiple sessions are needed to target hair in different growth stages. After each session, your hair will grow out thinner and sparser.
