When is the best time to get a laser hair removal procedure done?
As much as we love the hair on our heads, I'm sure we've all wished at some point that we could do without that precious hair everywhere else on our body, have simply clear, smooth skin, and get to skip out forever on all the waxing and shaving! Well, laser is the answer to that desire. When the laser beam is applied to skin that needs to be made free of hair growth, usually facial and axillary hair, or hair on the chest and back, it is absorbed by the hair follicle which then dries and falls off.
A Repeated sessions of laser therapy reduce hair growth to a great extent. The best time to option for the therapy is during the anagen phase of hair growth. Basically the hair growth cycle has three phases: anagen, where active hair growth occurs; catagen, where the growth stops; and, hair that goes into the resting phase is telogen. The reliable way to know when your hair is in its growth phase is to wait till there is maximum hair growth. Targeting the hair follicles at this opportune time ensures optimum results in its removal.
So now you know when to book your laser hair removal sessions!
