As we prepare to welcome in warmer weather, now is the best time to start thinking about your summer appearance. How do you want to look this summer? Toning muscles at the gym
Hair growth occurs in three phases: the growth phase, the transitional phase and the resting phase. The laser light is attracted to the color of melanin found in a hair follicle. Laser hair removal only destroys hair in the growth phase, or Anagen phase, because hair follicles contain the largest amount of melanin during this phase.
Approximately, 15-20 percent of hair is destroyed during one treatment. The heat from the laser cuts off the follicle’s blood supply causing hair to fall out. The majority of hair will fall out 10-14 days after the treatment. Multiple treatments are required to permanently remove
Unlike popular DIY options, laser hair removal offers a long-term solution to hair
The two types of lasers used to remove hair are: true lasers and intense pulse light (IPL) technology. True lasers use highly concentrated focused beams of light where as IPL use broad spectrum light. IPL technology is most commonly used for skin rejuvenation treatments, has a shallow depth of penetration, and does not cause permanent hair removal.
Spring is the best time to start preparing your body for summer fashion. This summer, be hair free! Talk to a professional esthetician to find out if you are a good candidate for laser hair removal.
