We all have body hair – but excessive or unwanted hair can be embarrassing and a nuisance. It can make you feel self-conscious and may negatively impact your self-confidence.
Vellus hair (also known as peach fuzz) on the face is also a common concern for some people. It can make the skin appear dull and lifeless. The characteristics of a person’s body hair including hair colour, thickness and distribution is determined by several factors including genetics, hormones, ethnicity and certain medical conditions.
Hair grows in three phases – anagen, catagen and telogen. Anagen is the active hair growth phase. Light based permanent hair reduction treatments target the pigment found in hair that is in anagen phase. This light energy is then converted to heat which destroys the hair follicle and prevents the hair from growing back – permanently. Therefore, permanent hair reduction modalities require the hair to be pigmented. This means very fine, white or grey coloured hair cannot be treated using light based permanent hair reduction treatments (no matter what anyone tells you!). Also, as not all the hairs will be in the active growth or anagen phase at any given time, multiple treatments are necessary.
