"Beauty is pain," according to the famous saying, but the certified laser specialists at Hairfree Nashville know that hair removal doesn't have to sting. Ambient music and complimentary beverages set a comfortable, relaxing scene for laser hair-removal sessions, during which technicians safely target and destroy active hair follicles on any skin tone. The Cynosure Elite laser’s patented ChillTip delivers a cooling sensation to numb the skin as technicians zap away fuzz to leave skin smoother than a cactus that has just entered the witness protection program. Because hair grows in cycles, most patients require six to eight sessions, scheduled four to eight weeks apart, after which, they can expect an 80 to 90 percent reduction in hair.

Cavi Medspa's aestheticians know that although all skin could benefit from a resurfacing treatment, not all skin reacts the same way to them. So after analyzing a client's face, they turn to either manual or PCA chemical skin-resurfacing treatments.
During microdermabrasion sessions, a diamond tip is used to remove the topmost layer of skin and reveal smoother skin underneath. Those with supersensitive skin can benefit from Sensi peels, which are also great for ethnic skin, whereas those with thick, resilient skin can benefit from PCA peels with hydroquinone and resorcinol, which dramatically brighten faces.
Other Cavi Medspa treatments that help skin glow include facials, waxing, and spray tans. The airbrush spray tans rely on an organic solution that bronzes bodies more effectively than dipping them in melted third-place medals.

The Wax Pot Studio’s skilled waxers leave skin soft, sleek, and fit for flaunting in swimsuits and leggy Thanksgiving pageant costumes alike.
