LASER HAIR REDUCTION
Unwanted hair – nobody likes it and nobody wants to have to deal with it. With traditional surgeries and techniques, hair removal has be painful, expensive, time-consuming and worst of all, temporary. Until now. With laser hair removal, say goodbye to the trouble, pain, and expense of getting rid of unsightly hair. Equally as effective for men and women, it works anywhere on the body, and has been proven to be permanent, efficient, and extremely affordable.
Hair is removed from within the follicle itself, leaving a slim chance for regrowth. Depending upon the area being treated, the entire procedure can be performed in 15-30 minutes – a smaller amount of time than a lunch break. The growth of human hair is cyclic, involving phases of active growth (anagen) and resting stages (telogen). In addition, an intermediate stage of transition and controlled regression, known as catagen, occurs between active growth and cessation of growth.
DURING THE ANAGEN PHASE: Hair-producing cells multiply and proliferate, producing more cells. The cortex cells in the middle of the hair follicle squeeze together into layers, and then harden. As this hardening process continues, the cortex cells cease to function, and eventually die. They are soon replaced by new cells.
DURING THE CATAGEN PHASE: The catagen phase is a relatively short growth phase of approximately 1-3 weeks in which the hair fibers and root sheaths cease growth. This leads to telogen, a ‘resting’ phase for the hair follicle.
DURING THE TELOGEN PHASE: The follicles stop producing hair and deposit their remaining cells on the end of the hair fiber, forming the anchor of the new, healthy fiber.
