How It Works
Lasers and light systems don’t actually remove the hair. Instead, they kill the unwanted hair by targeting the melanin in the hair follicle; disabling the hair from further growth. Hair removal lasers and light systems use low-energy settings to gently disable unwanted hair, thus putting an end to routine having or waxing. These treatments leave your skin looking and feeling smoother and silkier.
Because these systems scan the skin rather than treating one hair at a time, it is possible to treat larger areas such as the back, shoulders, arms, legs, face and neck. Best of all, these advanced hair removal treatments are safe, fast, gentle, and effective alternative methods for hair removal.
What to Expect
Laser hair removal is a gentle process here in Lake Havasu City. We start with The light energy passes through the skin and is absorbed by the pigment in the hair follicle. The light energy vaporizes the carbon particles in the follicle, disabling hair growth. Treatments can last from a few minutes to a few hours depending on the size of the area being treated.
Most patients achieve their desired results in 2 to 3 treatments; however, hair has a growth cycle that is influenced by many factors. Age, ethnicity, weight, hormones, diet, medication and metabolism all play a part in your hair’s location, thickness, and resilience. The number of treatments you may require for optimal long-term benefits depends on the area you wish to have treated, the hair density, and your hair’s growth cycle.
Laser systems treat the hair follicles in the growth cycle at the time of the treatment. Since some hair follicles may enter their growth cycle after your treatment, multiple treatments may be required to deliver optimal results. Most patients prefer to continue periodic treatments until the hair is completely gone.
After your treatment you can return to your normal activities immediately. We recommend that you use a specially formulated skin care product line or prescribe a skin care regime especially formulated for your skin type after laser hair removal treatments in Lake Havasu City. The use of sunscreen is recommended for 48 hours on any treated areas exposed to the sun.
