HAIR GROWTH CYCLES
One hair follicle takes 2 to 3 months to regrow a hair. It goes through 3 stages: anagen (growing), catagen (shedding), telogen (dormant).
After 6 months of regular hair removal treatments, we have treated every follicle 2 times, including the dormant ones. The area is much clearer. Most of the hairs are gone. You don’t need to come back as often. For example, if you came once a week in the beginning, now you will be coming every 3 weeks.
The average professional electrologist with average skills statistically kills 40% of the hairs at each treatment. 60% of hair grows back weaker 2 to 3 months later.
You hit the hairs once and they come back weaker. Hit them again and then they don’t come back. It’s gradual but permanent. It’s important to understand that not all hairs are out and visible at one time. Contact me at (212) 633-1503 to learn more.
