Summer's Here! Dare to Bare All!

Elizabeth Winter

Summer is in full swing, and that means it’s time to bare it all! Are you tired of keeping up with shaving and waxing, stubble and ingrown hairs, and that 5 o’clock shadow you can’t seem to shake? Let ALCHEMĒ’s high-speed, pain-free hair removal come to your rescue and say good bye to unwanted hair in little as 15 minutes with zero downtime. Summer has never looked so good!

But how does it work? There are three phases in the hair growth cycle: the anagen, catagen and telogen phases. The anagen phase is the phase where hair actually grows and is the longest phase lasting 3 to 5 years. Interestingly, hair grows faster in the summer making it an ideal time for hair removal. Laser hair removal targets hair during the anagen, or active growth phase, by emitting a concentrated beam of light that is directed at the pigment of the hair follicle. This light kills the root preventing unwanted hair from ever returning.

Does it hurt? Not anymore. You may remember the days of painful, burning hair removal; those days are long gone. Venus Velocity’s patented cooling technology prevents warming of the skin which in turn prevents any discomfort associated with laser skin removal.
