Laser hair removal is the best hair removal method. While laser hair removal is generally safe and effective, the success of the treatment depends on a variety of factors, including the stage of the hair growth cycle.

Let us explain the hair growth cycle

Understanding the hair growth cycle is crucial for the success of laser hair removal. The hair growth cycle consists of three main phases: anagen, catagen, and telogen.

Stage 1: Anagen

Anagen phase, which is the active growth phase, the hair follicle produces a new hair shaft. This phase can last anywhere from a few weeks to several years, depending on the location of the hair on the body and individual factors such as age and hormonal changes.

Stage 2: Catagen

The catagen phase is a transitional phase that lasts for a few weeks. During this phase, the hair follicle shrinks and detaches from the blood supply, preparing for the final phase of the hair growth cycle.

Stage 3: Telogen 

The telogen phase, also known as the resting phase, is when the hair follicle is in a dormant state. The hair shaft remains in place, but no new growth occurs. After a few months, the hair falls out, and the hair growth cycle starts again.

What is the best stage for great results ?

In order to achieve great results, it’s important to maximize the amount of time your hair spends in the anagen stage.

Although some of your body hair may be in the growth stage that is suitable for laser treatment, not all of it will be, and you may notice hair emerging from the skin that is already in the catagen stage. This means that the laser will not be able to target the hair follicle for that specific hair, and you may experience regrowth later on. To treat all of your hair, regardless of the stage they are in during the sessions, multiple sessions will be necessary.
