Each hair follicle on your head goes through a growth cycle consisting of three phases. The first phase, called the anagen phase, is when the individual strand of hair is actively growing.
This phase lasts the longest – up to 7 years in some cases! After the anagen phase is complete, the catagen phase begins. This is a short phase that lasts around 10 days. The telogen phase is the final stage, where the follicle releases the strand of hair and it falls out. The follicle then stays inactive for about three months before once again starting the active anagen phase. Laser hair removal works by targeting hair follicles in the active anagen phase. These follicles absorb the light emitted by the laser, which is then converted to heat that damages the follicle and prohibits future hair growth. Since only hairs in the anagen phase can be targeted, several laser hair removal treatments are necessary to achieve most people’s goals.
Patients who have unwanted hair in any area of their body may be good candidates for LightSheer QUATTRO treatment. In a personalized consultation, we will help you determine whether this treatment is right for you.
Patients with excessive exposure to the sun, tanning booths, sunless tanner in the area being treated, tattoos in the treatment area, or who are taking medications that cause sun sensitivity should not receive our Bend LightSheer QUATTRO laser hair removal treatment. Prior to treatment, you need to avoid tweezing, waxing, and depilatories, and the area that is being treated will need to be shaved.

To say goodbye to your unwanted hair, call us in Bend, OR today to schedule your consultation! Our office can be reached at 541-508-7907.
