Laser Hair Removal in Knoxville
Laser hair removal is a cosmetic treatment that uses a concentrated beam of light to remove unwanted hair. The laser targets the melanin (pigment) in the hair follicle and destroys it. This process usually requires multiple sessions to achieve desired results.
Laser hair removal can be used to remove hair from any area of the body. It is most commonly used to remove hair from the face, legs, arms, and bikini area.

How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?
Laser hair removal works by targeting the melanin (pigment) in the hair follicle and destroying it. The laser treatment produces a concentrated beam of light that is absorbed by the melanin. Because this permanent hair removal process targets hair at the root of the source (the hair follicle), it significantly reduces the chance of hair growth, if not completely eliminating it.
How to Prepare for Laser Hair Removal
Prior to your treatment, you will need to avoid sun exposure for at least 4 weeks. This means no sun tanning, no self-tanners, and no sun bathing. You will also need to shave the treatment area prior to your appointment. Do not wax or pluck the hair in the treatment area for at least 6 weeks prior to your appointment.
What to Expect at Your First Laser Hair Removal Treatment
At your first laser hair removal treatment, a patch test will be done to ensure that you are not allergic to the laser. Once the patch test is complete, the treatment will begin. The length of time for each treatment will depend on the size of the area being treated. Most treatments take less than an hour.
After your treatment, you may experience some redness and swelling in the treatment area. This is normal and will subside within a few hours. You should avoid sun exposure and wear sunscreen when outdoors.

These factors will be discussed and explained during your free personal consultation.
How Old Do You Have to Be to Get Laser Hair Removal?
There is no age limit for laser hair removal, but the FDA does not recommend the treatment for children under the age of 12. If you are considering the treatment for someone under the age of 18, it is important to consult with a professional at LightRx in Knoxville to determine if it is right for them.
What Is the Difference Between Laser Hair Removal & Electrolysis?
Laser hair removal and electrolysis are both methods of hair removal. Laser hair removal uses a concentrated beam of light to target the melanin in the hair follicle and destroy it. This process usually requires multiple sessions to achieve desired results.
Electrolysis involves the use of a needle to destroy the hair follicle. It is a more invasive treatment and is typically only used for small areas. It is also a more time-consuming process, as each hair follicle must be treated individually.
How Long Does Laser Hair Removal Last?
Laser hair removal usually requires multiple sessions to achieve desired results, but the number of sessions needed will depend on the individual, their skin type, and the area being treated. If you are considering laser hair removal, it is important to consult with our staff of professional technicians to determine if it is right for you.
