She attended and graduated from Rocky Mountain college as a certified laser specialist and decided to buy the Candela GentleLASE Plus?; in order to establish her own laser hair removal clinic, Advanced Derma-Laser.

First of all, knowing about hair growth. Hair is important for every woman but on the other hand every woman wants to get rid of the unwanted hair growth. Basically the hair grows inside a hair bulb deep in the hair follicle. Follicle may be a small part, but for most of the people it hardly stops growing throughout their life.There are three stages of hair growth which are:

. Anagen (the growing phrase)

. Catagen (the intermediate phrase)

.Telogen (the shedding phrase)

Anagen: This phrase is also called the growing phrase. In this period the hair follicle grows to about 6 inches in a year. The hair follicles that of eyelashes, arms and legs have a growing stage of only few months, so the hair they produce are short.

Catagen: This is also called the transitional stage, in which the hair follicle becomes smaller as the lower portions of the follicle are absorbed by the body, and ceases to make hair.

Telogen: This is also called the resting stage. After two to three months of resting the hair starts falling. At the end of the resting stage, the old hair falls out, the follicle enlarges, and a new growth cycle starts and a new hair shaft begins to grow.
