Hair Growth Cycles And The Impact On Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal SydneyDo you really need 10 sessions of laser hair removal? Not likely.

With Winter just around the corner, now is the perfect time to have laser hair removal as you won’t need to worry about avoiding sun exposure before your treatment.

In this article we look at the three different stages of hair growth and how they impact laser hair removal as well as why you wouldn’t need ten sessions to achieve hairless skin. If you have tried painful IPL hair removal and never gone back, this is your opportunity to try Sydney’s most advanced laser – GentleMax Pro. With the latest technology comes virtually pain free hair removal, up to three times faster than other hair removal treatments.


Hair Growth Stages

Normal hair growth cycles through four stages as follows:

1. Anagen, or the active growth stage is the optimal time in the cycle for laser treatment. This stage is at the beginning of the growth cycle, when the hair and the surrounding cells are in the best condition to be treated. The reason for more than one treatment is due to the fact that not all hair follicles (roughly 80-90%) are in anagen or growth stage at any one time.

2. Catagen, also referred to as the transition or regression phase is when the hair begins to lighten, start thinning or shed and is not ideal for laser treatment due to this. Around 3% of hair follicles will be in this phase at any point in time.

3. Telogen, or the resting phase, when hair growth has stopped and the follicle becomes dormant. Approximately 10-15% of hair follicles are in this stage and this phase does not respond to laser treatment.
