Whether you have unwanted hair on the face, underarms, chest, abdomen, legs, or back, removing it has become a lot easier with the use of laser technology. For many people hair removal is a big deal, and with traditional hair removal methods it often seemed that hair grew back faster and thicker than before.
Permanent hair reduction is possible with laser hair removal. However, it won’t all go away at once, because hair grows in phases and lasers can only work on hair that is in the active growth phase.
During this phase, also known as the Anagen, the hair is very visible above the skin. In addition, it is attached to the papilla at the base of the hair shaft, and this makes it possible for the laser to zap it at the base, and destroy the papilla.
Before the hair is expelled it passes through a transition phase known as the Catagen. During this time the hair is not as active, and so it stops growing. Then there is the Telogen or resting phase in which the hair is totally inactive, and so treatment is not possible.
