Managing Unwanted Hair

Unwanted hair on the body can be a source of embarrassment for some people, potentially impacting on confidence levels. It can also be a hassle to constantly remove unwanted hair.

If you want to remove your unwanted hair and achieve smooth skin, we’ve got everything you need to know. The best, pain free, non-invasive method of hair removal? SkinBase IPL.

The Purpose of Hair

Adults have around 5 million hairs on average. Hair is a keratinised structure, with a primary purpose to protect – from injury, sunburn, foreign matter, insects and dust.

Types of Hair

There are three types of hair. Lanugo hair is found in foetal life, and is shed around the 8th month of pregnancy. Vellus hair is fine, rarely exceeding 2cm in length unless triggered into terminal hairs. Terminal hairs are those you want to remove, long and coarse, containing pigment.

Hair Structure

The hair is structured into 4 main parts. The hair shaft is the part that is visible above the skin’s surface. The root is embedded into the epidermis. The bulb provides nourishment for the growing hair. The arrector pili are muscles that contract when cold or scared, causing the hairs to stand up.

Hair Growth Cycle

Hair growth occurs in a cyclical pattern, with periods of growth and rest. The anagen phase is the growth phase, and approximately 85% of hairs are in this phase at any one time.

Beauty by Joanne Smedley

Client Testimonial: “I’d tried all sorts of treatments to get rid of my wrinkles and sagging skin particularly on my left cheek. Nothing has ever worked. Microneedling and caci being just 2 of those. When Jo told me of the collagen lift it was a last stop before a face lift. I am amazed at the results, I don’t focus on my wrinkles when I look in the mirror anymore as they aren’t noticeable! Jo has worked wonders on my skin and I will continue to have the treatment as it not only works but it isn’t painful like the others and it’s actually relaxing.”
