Hair Removal Basics
Hair grows in three phases. Because hair grows in different phases, it is important to have multiple laser treatments to effectively remove unwanted hair.
- Anagen Phase: the “growing phase” – This is the active phase when hair contains the most amount of melanin. Laser hair removal is only affective on hair in the anagen phase.
- Catagen Phase: the “regression phase” – This is when the hair actually shrinks in size and stops growing.
- Telogen Phase: the “resting phase”- Is when the old hair is removed from the follicle and new hair begins to grow.
