The removal of unwanted body hair is a major concern for both men and woman. Until recently, removing it was uncomfortable, inconvenient, expensive and time-consuming. But that has all changed. Today, with the remarkable advances in laser technology, unwanted hair is being removed safely and is affordable. Laser Hair Removal has been extensively researched, tested and proven highly effective in permanently reducing unwanted hair. It works on just about any treatment area of the body where smooth skin is desired…underarms, face, neck, legs, shoulders, back, bikini line, you name it.

How does laser hair removal work? Let’s find out.
The 3 hair growth cycles are:
- Anagen: The Active Growth Cycle – This is where the hair is actively growing and thriving
- Catagen: The Transitional Cycle – This cycle is where the hair stops growing and the follicle starts to shut down in the process
- Telogen: The Rest Cycle – This last cycle is where the hair basically sits in the skin and is free to fall out
At Simply laser we use a high energy, narrowly focused laser beam that is directed at the (Anagen) growing hair to damage its follicle. The pigment in the hair follicle absorbs the laser light and converts the light to heat. The heat, in turn, damages the follicle and destroys its ability to re-grow. Treatments are spaced between 4-6 weeks apart to make sure the maximum hair is removed during the three growth cycles.
With each treatment, the hair will grow back slower and finer until the hair follicle produces no or very little hair. Safety goggles are always worn by the patients and laser specialists for optimal safety.
