Hair Growth Cycle
The hair growth cycle plays a pivotal role in the success of your treatment. Your hair grows in four phases:
- Anagen: The hair is actively growing.
- Catagen: Active growth ends, and the transitional phase begins.
- Telogen: The hair rests and does not actively grow.
- Exogen: Hairs shed as they are released from follicles.
The goal is to eliminate the hair follicle for a permanent reduction in hair growth. To do this, the hair must be in the Anagen phase.
The length of the hair growth cycle varies from client to client. And because not all hair follicles are in the same phase simultaneously, it takes multiple treatments to achieve the best results. Typically, we schedule each treatment 6-8 weeks apart.
Pre & Post Care
Here’s how to prepare for your upcoming treatment: Before you come in for your appointment, shave the treatment area. You should also cleanse the skin to remove any makeup, oils, or creams. Make sure to avoid sun exposure before and after your treatment.
Once your treatment is complete, follow this skincare routine:
- Put on sunscreen whenever you go outside.
- Do not exfoliate the skin for ~48 hours post-treatment.
- If you experience any redness or tenderness, apply aloe vera
