How does hair grow?
Everyone’s hair grows differently, depending on age, weight, metabolism, hormones, ethnicity, medications, and other factors. But all hair goes through three distinct growth phases:
- Active growth phase (called the Anagen phase), which can last up to 3 months. At any given time, 20-30% of our body hair is in this phase. During Anagen, the hair has an abundance of melanin and that is the key target for the laser light. To get the maximum result, 6 treatments are generally required to achieve 90-95% permanent hair reduction.
- Regressive phase (Catagen phase), which lasts about 3 days, during which the hair stops growing but is not yet shed. About 3 – 4% of our body hair is in this phase at any given time. Many patients report that hair starts to shed immediately, and can be found on a towel following a shower. We recommend not waxing, tweezing or using any methods to remove the hairs following your laser treatments.
- Resting phase (Telogen phase), which lasts 4-14 days, at the end of which the hair falls out and a new hair begins to form. Following the laser treatment the hair appears to still grow. These hairs are in fact club (dead) hairs and within 3-4 weeks the new hair from another active growth phase will begin to grow out of the same hair shaft. Remember that even though the hair is growing out of the same hair shaft, the follicle growing is new and is now ready for the laser light.
