SUMMER AND TREATMENTS
SUMMER Is Here......Be Smart......Take Your Pre-Cautions.
HAIR LIFE CYCLE
The Anagen phase is considered the “growth period” when the hair is actively growing. The hair bulb is anchored into the scalp providing it with nourishing blood flow. About 80-85% of your follicles are in this stage which lasts for 2-6 years. It is the best time for Hair Removal Treatments.
The Catagen phase is a short “transitional period” when the hair stops growing and the hair bulb detaches from the nourishing blood supply.
The Telogen phase is the “resting period” where the detached hair strand rests in the follicle. Hair is no longer growing but it hasn’t shed yet (about 10-15% of your hairs are in this phase). The follicle remains dormant for around 3 months while new hair growth begins to form underneath it.
The Exogen phase is the “shedding phase” where the hair finally exits or “sheds” the follicle as it begins a new anagen phase for new hair growth.
When the hair growth phases are disrupted - the Anagen “growth” phases can shorten and Telogen “resting” phases can lengthen. This answers why certain treatments may take longer to show results and why consistency of treatments is crucial.
Everybody has heard of the traditional IPL. IPL stands for Intense Pulsed Light. Times have changed and IPL has entered into the next generation. The new SHR (Super Hair Removal) technology. The latest technology combines both the old and new and makes treatments virtually pain-free. IPL SHR is popular for men, women and teenagers.
The latest DS-IPL1050 machine can not only treat variety of skin issues but can also be used for successful hair removal. When it comes to hair removal, older machines can be painful and cause sensitivity to the skin, meaning that treatments are restricted to certain seasons. The summer is the season when you really want to be hair-free, and that could be one season you might need to avoid the conventional IPL treatments.
With our new SHR-AFT system we can effectively remove hair whilst cooling the skin so there is less damage and sensitivity. That means you can get back to regular activities faster and be treated all year round.
