Phases of hair growth

There are three phases of hair growth; the anagen (growth) phase, the catagen (resting) phase and the telogen (shedding) phase.  The anagen phase is when laser hair removal is most effective. As all hairs are not in the same phase at the same time, more than one treatment will be necessary to achieve the best results. It is highly recommended to partake in five to seven treatments at six to eight week intervals. Remember, there are multiple factors that can affect laser hair removal treatment results; hair thickness, hair colour, your hormones, age and your skin colour.

With fall comes cooler weather, less sun exposure, and a faded summer tan 

The season of fall brings cooler temperatures where tank tops and shorts are no longer required.  If your hair is shedding, no one will notice it under your long clothing. Along with the change of season, you no longer have to worry about avoiding sun exposure after your treatment at a laser hair removal clinic in Toronto. Preventing the sun from hitting the sensitive treated area is much easier to do when dressing warmly for fall than in the summer.  Additionally, as summer leaves us so does our summer glow. If you are tanned, it can be harder for the laser to distinguish the contrast between your skin and hairs. A fading tan makes hairs more obvious to the laser, and laser hair removal is much more efficient and effective.

 

Popular FAQ’s answered

Should I shave before laser hair removal? 

It is recommended to shave the desired treatment area 12-24 hours prior to your appointment to ensure your skin is clean of stubble growth.

What should I expect after my first laser hair removal treatment? 

After your first treatment of laser hair removal, you may experience redness or swelling on the treated area.  Sometimes it may feel like a sunburn does. These symptoms will minimize within a few hours or days after the treatment.

What happens if I stop laser hair removal? 

When it comes to successful laser hair removal, consistency is key. The average time between appointments is four to six weeks, and depends on which areas of your body you are receiving the laser hair removal. It normally takes five sessions to achieve satisfactory hair reduction results.
