 Laser Hair Removal Treatment Best Care Clinic  Clarksville, Tennessee

Both men and women can suffer from unwanted hair. As a man, you may have heard too many jokes about looking like a bear coming out of hibernation when you take your shirt off on a hot day. Or you may be a woman in menopause, and start to see hairs growing above your upper lip. And no woman wants to shave her legs every day to avoid the daily stubble. Summer’s coming, and you may be looking for the best permanent solution to hair removal.

You’ll be happy to know that technology in hair removal has taken a big step forward. The patented Icon™ Aesthetic System rids you of unwanted hair permanently. Only a few treatments using this system gets you to your goal.

Just think: No more daily shaving, waxing every few weeks, or long electrolysis treatments. Did you know that by some estimates, women spend 72 days (that’s 1,728 hours) shaving their legs over their lifetimes? Once your Icon treatments are completed, you can spend that time more effectively.   

Where can the Icon laser remove unwanted hair? The answer is just about anywhere on your body that you have unwanted hair -- legs, back, chest, armpits, lip area, hands, and more.

How laser hair removal works

Each hair grows from a follicle, which is a small area around the root of the hair where it’s attached to your skin. The laser light targets the pigment (melanin) in your hair follicles. During treatment, the follicles absorb the laser energy, which destroys them.

Your hairs are in different stages of growth, and only the hairs in the growth phase can be destroyed by the laser. So only a certain percent of the follicles are going to be eliminated during a treatment session. You’ll need a few sessions with the laser to treat all of the follicles in the area under treatment.

The laser doesn’t harm your skin while it’s targeting your hair follicles. Does it hurt? Not really. Your technician applies a numbing gel to the area being treated before the procedure begins. You may feel a sensation like tingling or like a rubber band snapping -- no more than that. It’s fast and easy, and it’s safe for all skin tones.

What to know before laser hair removal

Here at Best Care Clinic, Dr. Tittle gives the following suggestions to help you prepare for your hair removal procedure.

She may give you additional instructions as well.

Length and number of laser hair removal treatments

If you’re having a small area done, for example, around your lips, the treatment may last no more than five minutes. If a larger area is targeted, the procedure can last up to 60 minutes. You can lie back, relax, read, or listen to music during your treatment. You’ll likely need a total of 3-6 treatments for best results, so starting right now will help you be ready by summertime.
