Hair grows in a cycle of three stages – growth, transition, and resting. Hair responds best to laser treatments during the growth stage, and about 30% of hair is in this phase at any given time, meaning that multiple laser treatments are necessary to see results. Venus Epileve™ targets the hair during its growth stage, by delivering laser energy right into the hair follicle. There, it gets absorbed by the hair pigment, which zaps and destroys the follicle so it can’t grow hair anymore. Over time, Venus Epileve™ treatments permanently reduce hair by stopping the growth right at the root.
