Anagen is the active phase of hair growth. Only hair in this phase can be irreversibly damaged. The duration of the anagen is dependent on skin area, age, gender and hormonal function. The essence of the treatment is to change the light energy into heat, which effectively destroys the entire hair structure. On the head there is 85 - 90 % of hair in the anagen phase, while on the pubic hill only 20 - 30 %. The idea of the epilation treatment is to remove the hair structures responsible for its growth (matrix, papilla), and it is in this phase that we can do it.
Catagen. It's the transition time of the hair follicle. During which the hair pad disappears and is released from the papilla.
Telogen - the resting period of the hair follicle. In this phase the hair is keratinized and does not grow. And underneath it is the next bundle of new hair. There is a loss of hair by "pushing" the old one out by the new one.
