How Laser Hair Removal Works
Say goodbye to tedious hair removal methods like shaving, waxing, and plucking once and for all.

Using the latest, most advanced Astanza MeDioStar laser technology, Get Well Clinic delivers smooth skin in as little as six treatments.
How It Works
During treatment, our Astanza MeDioStar laser emits a pulse of light energy that travels through the skin and targets the melanin in the hair follicle. The laser heats up the follicle and destroys the papilla or hair root, successfully cutting off the hair’s nutrient source. Once the damage has been done, the follicle cannot produce hair.
In order to achieve long-lasting hair removal, multiple treatments are needed. This is because laser hair removal is only effective during a specific hair growth stage. Hair grows in a cycle of three stages: the anagen phase, the catagen phase, and the telogen phase.
Different Hair Cycles
The anagen phase, also known as the active growth stage, is the only stage that laser hair removal is effective in. The anagen phase is when the root of the hair is attached to the papilla.
The catagen phase, also known as the transition phase, is when the hair follicle detaches from the papilla, cutting off the nutrient blood supply.
The telogen phase, also known as the resting phase, is when the old hair sheds and new hair begins to form. Thus, starting the cycle all over again.
Because hair grows at different rates, it’s impossible to target each individual hair during its anagen phase, which is why multiple treatments are needed for optimal results. Get Well Clinic recommends each patient receives a minimum of 6 to 12 treatments for long-lasting results. Our Astanza MeDioStar laser produces safe and effective results on all skin types and hair colors, even newly tanned skin. Call us today to book your free appointment!
