Laser Smooth Company_Is Laser Hair Removal Right For You

When it comes to permanently reducing unwanted body hair, laser hair removal is the only option. Shaving and waxing hair away is a pain, and the results never last. You’ll always have to repeat the chore of shaving and waxing for as long as you don’t want hair in that area. Laser hair removal, on the other hand, ultimately disables hair follicles from producing hair, resulting in permanent hair removal.

The experts at Laser Smooth Company are eager to help you achieve the smooth skin you deserve. Once you make the decision that laser hair removal is right for you, we urge you to book your appointments as soon as you are able. Achieving permanent hair reduction takes time.

Since hair grows in cycles, to completely eliminate hair growth, 6-8 treatments (at intervals of 8-12 weeks) are needed to achieve the desired result.

WHAT ARE THE CYCLES OF HAIR GROWTH?

Anagen (active) is the growing phase or when the hair fiber is produced.

Catagen (club hair) is the period of controlled regression of the hair follicle. This phase is when the lower part of the hair stops growing, but does not shed, and the follicle is reabsorbed.

Telogen (tired) is the last of the hair growth cycle. In this resting phase, the old hair falls out in preparation for the development of a new anagen hair.

Your hair does not cycle through these phases all at the same time, however, and laser hair removal only affects hairs that are in the anagen phase of growth. Thus, multiple treatments are needed in order to disable each batch of hair as it enters the anagen phase of growth. Hair cycle length varies depending on body part. Facial hair usually requires more frequent treatments (about 6 weeks apart) whereas leg and back hair need less frequent treatments (closer to 8 weeks apart). Spacing treatments no more than 12 weeks apart allows adequate time to target hair on most body areas.

This is also why the experts at Laser Smooth Company recommend winter as the optimal time to begin laser hair removal. Beginning in winter allows you to achieve permanent body hair reduction in time for warmer weather, when most of us are ready to show more skin.
