Hair growth cycles:
Anagen Phase: active phase of hair growth. This phase lasts for several months, and is considered the best phase for laser hair removal.
Catagen Phase: during this short-lived phase, the hair bulb regresses and begins to shrink.
Telogen Phase: resting phase of hair growth. This phase lasts for a few months, then the hair is released, and the anagen phase begins again.
So, how does it work? This light-based technology emits pulses of energy into the skin to target and heat hair follicles responsible for growth. The follicle absorbs the energy and is destroyed, unable to produce hair again.
With the Cynosure Icon laser, as your provider guides the handpiece over the treatment area you will feel cooling on your skin. This contact cooling will maximize your comfort during the treatment, making it a more tolerable experience, as well as decrease the side effects of redness and swelling to the areas treated.
The advantages of laser hair removal are clear: long-term results, fast treatment sessions, great for reducing hair from larger areas, and relatively comfortable treatments with no downtime.
