Are you tired of plucking, waxing, shaving, and dissolving unwanted body hair, only to have it return time and again? There is a better solution. You can rid yourself of this embarrassment and inconvenience forever with laser hair removal in Knoxville, TN, available from Southeastern Dermatology.
How does laser hair removal work?
For the permanent removal of hair, the treatment must begin where the problem begins – at the follicle. Common, temporary methods focus on actually removing the hair, in which case a new one promptly begins growing. Like any treatment, to be effective the cause must be addressed, and that is exactly what we do with the use of laser technology.
Using the power of light energy, we can effectively render hair follicles incapable of growing new hairs. The treatment is targeted, allowing for such precision that we can
- Define the edges of areas you want hair growing, such as sideburns or bikini line.
- Thin out body hair that is too thick – a common request of men with “hairy” chests, who don’t quite want to go hair-free.
- Entirely eliminate the problem of hair from a large area, such as leg or back hair.
What to expect
Laser hair removal is not only effective; it is safe and nearly painless. Most patients experience no more than a slight stinging sensation, if any discomfort at all. The procedure is relatively fast, though the exact length of time depends on the area being treated. It may take from a few minutes to a few hours.
This is not a one-time treatment; it will require several sessions. This is because hair follicles cycle through growth and resting phases. They are only responsive to laser therapy during the active growth phase. Therefore, several treatments, at carefully timed intervals, are required to access every follicle at the correct stage. Annual maintenance treatments may be recommended, to ensure truly permanent results.
