How does the treatment work?
The laser light targets only the hair that are actively growing (anagen phase), therefore multiple treatments are necessary to treat all the hair as they are not all growing simultaneously. Different hair follicles will be in different hair growth stages at any one time.
1-2weeks after laser hair removal treatment the dead hair is pushed through the skin and shed. During this period, it would seem as though the hair is still growing.
- Active phase of hair growth
- Lasts for several months.
- Best phase for Laser Hair
- During this brief phase, the hair bulb regresses and begins to shrink.
- Resting phase of hair
- Lasts for several months then hair is released.
- Anagen phase begins again.
After the second treatment the treatment area will already start to look patchy as the treated follicles will have stopped producing new hair.
Unwanted hair is a common problem, for both men and women. Frequent hair removal chores including shaving, depilatories, plucking, and waxing are time-consuming, inconvenient and often painful. At best, these frequently used methods offer only temporary results – for some only a few hours. It’s no surprise that according to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, laser hair removal is the 3rd most performed non-surgical cosmetic treatment in the US.
