What is Laser Hair Removal?

Laser hair removal is a form of cosmetic dermatology that is an alternative to shaving, waxing, or tweezing. This method has been proven to provide clients with long-term hair reduction, and it has gained popularity because it delivers effective, fast results.

How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?

This hair removal process uses a concentrated beam of light to remove unwanted hair. The dark pigments within hair, called melanin, absorb the light emitted from the laser. The light is converted to heat and targets the hair follicles below the surface of the skin. Hair growth will be stunted or even permanently reduced after the laser damages the hair root.

Sona’s Benefits for Laser Hair Removal in Nashville

Once you decide hair reduction is the method is right for you, enjoy these benefits of our Nashville laser hair removal:

  • Speed—The amount of time you spend receiving laser hair removal depends on what body areas you are getting treated. If you are targeting your upper lip, one session could be over in 5 minutes. A treatment on your entire lower body could take up to an hour. All clients will enjoy the results and time gained from not shaving or waxing.
  • Predictability—Many clients see long-term hair removal within an average of 5–7 sessions. If hair does grow back, it will be much finer and easier to remove than the original hair.
  • Precision—Your skin will remain unharmed from our lasers; only your hair follicles will be damaged.

When you book an appointment with Sona, your laser hair removal experience will also be convenient. We offer:

  • Online booking—You can easily schedule your consultation online.
  • Weekend and evening hours—We’re open on Saturdays from 9:00 am–2:00 pm to give our clients an extra day to schedule their appointments. During the week, we’re open until 8:00 pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays. On Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, we close at 6:00 pm.
  • Professional expertise—Sona uses industry leading technology for laser hair removal, and we ensure that all of our technicians are highly trained and qualified to perform this service. In fact, our professionals often exceed Tennessee state requirements. Lastly, a physician oversees all procedures and treatments.
  • Customized treatment plans—Laser hair removal will take more than one session for the best results. Our practitioners will consult with each client to create a treatment plan tailored to suit your needs, schedule, and budget.

Laser Hair Removal Myths

While researching laser hair removal, you may have run across conflicting information. Every client has a different experience with their laser hair removal, and it can be difficult discern between facts and opinions. Sona is clearing up misconceptions about the treatment, so you can decide whether or not laser hair removal is the right choice for you. Read these common myths we address during a laser hair removal consultation, including:

  • You can’t get laser hair removal if your skin is naturally dark—In the past, old laser hair removal techniques would cause pigment changes among darker skin shades. New laser hair removal technology sends wavelengths that do not severely affect pigment, so laser hair removal can benefit most skin types.
  • Laser hair removal is extremely painful—Many people believe that the lasting results of laser hair removal come with the high price of pain. Sona’s qualified practitioners use materials that are designed to reduce unpleasant side effects from the light used in hair reduction.
  • You won’t feel anything during laser hair removal—This can depend on the practitioner. If they use a numbing agent, it is unlikely that you will feel discomfort. Most lasers often elicit a tingling or stinging sensation during the treatment session, which subsides once the hair follicles have been destroyed.
  • You can’t receive laser hair removal treatments during the summer—This myth stems from the fact that it is best to avoid the sun before receiving laser hair removal. The procedure can be performed during the summer months as long as the client avoids tanning or frequent sun exposure before and after treatments.

Is Laser Hair Removal Painful?

Everyone experiences laser hair removal differently. It’s likely you will feel a sensation, but not pain, as the laser targets and destroys hair follicles. Our laser hair removal in Nashville is much more comfortable than other methods of hair reduction, like waxing. Any discomfort you may feel varies, depending on the treatment area and your hair type.

To reduce the amount of tingling induced by the laser, technicians will often numb the targeted area before and after hair removal treatment. With each laser hair removal session, the discomfort you felt in prior treatments will become less noticeable, and your hairs will continue to become more fine and less dark.

What Can You Expect from Laser Hair Removal at Sona?

When you schedule a consultation at Sona, our trained medical professionals can explain our laser hair removal process from start to finish. When you come in for an appointment, you’ll know exactly what to expect when we begin your hair removal procedure. One of our experienced practitioners will take you through the following process:

  1. A gel will then be applied to the target area to protect any surrounding skin from the laser.
  2. Your practitioner will ask you about your hair’s thickness, color, and location, as well as your skin color to determine how to the laser should be adjusted.
  3. The heated light from the laser will target the pigment in your hair.
  4. When the procedure is finished, the lasered hair follicles will be deactivated, making it difficult for new hair to grow.

How to Prepare for Your Nashville Laser Hair Removal Appointment

For the best laser hair removal results with minimal side effects, our medical professionals recommend:

  • Avoiding sun exposure starting at least 2 weeks before treatment.
  • Refraining from self-tanning lotion, so your skin is as light as possible.
  • Stopping waxing or tweezing on the target area 4 weeks before your appointment.
  • Avoiding blood-thinning medications. Consult with your physician about laser hair removal before making an appointment if you take these medications.

Most clients see results after five to seven treatments, and you can read reviews from our clients about their experience. If you like what you see, complete the form to contact Sona and make an appointment.

How Much Does Laser Hair Removal Cost?

The specific cost of laser hair removal treatment will depend on several factors, including:

  • How many areas are being treated
  • The size of the treatment area (smaller areas typically cost less)
  • The amount of time it takes to treat the target area

When you call Sona in Brentwood, our highly trained professionals will explain pricing, financing, and payment options. We know that you’ll be satisfied with your laser hair removal, as we offer the Sona Lifetime Promise. This promise ensures that you will have long-term results, so you can be confident in knowing that you’ll receive the best laser hair removal for your money.

When you get a laser hair removal treatment package at Sona, our Lifetime Promise includes a 75% discount on touch-up treatments for life.

Possible Side Effects of Laser Hair Removal

Once you receive Sona’s laser hair removal treatment(s), your skin may temporarily experience side effects that typically resolve within a few days, including:

  • Redness and irritation—Some patients experience mild irritation and redness after a laser hair removal treatment. The targeted area may feel tender or swell slightly after this procedure, like skin that has been waxed but with more lasting results. These symptoms won’t last for long, and this initial irritation should wear off within a few hours of the treatment.
  • Skin discoloration—Depending on the color of your skin, you may notice a slightly darker or lighter skin than your normal shade in the treatment area. If a change in pigment occurs, it will be temporary and often hard to notice. The skin will return to normal over time. Staying out of the sun before laser hair removal can prevent skin discoloration from occuring.
  • Crusting—The targeted hair follicles can become slightly crusted. This side effect occurs in only 10% of laser hair removal patients. Crusting is not that same as scabbing, which can sometimes cause scars. Fortunately, this can be treated with proper care, like regular moisturization of the treatment area.

The best way to prevent harmful side effects is to use the most qualified and medically trained laser hair removal technicians in Nashville. When you come to our Sona location in Brentwood, we know that you will enjoy your laser hair removal results, as we have over 20 years of experience performing these services.
