How it works :

Hair grows in a cycle of three stages : anagen (growth) , catagen (transitional) , and telogen (resting) . Venus epileve uses laser technology to target the hair follicle in the anagen phase , which is when the hair responds best to the treatment . About 30% of hair is in this phase at any given time , which is why you need multiple treatments to see results . Venus epileve works by delivering energy to the hair follicle , where its absorbed by the hair pigment . This destroys the follicle so that the hair cannot grow anymore , resulting in permanent hair reduction . Multiple sessions are needed for permanent hair reduction , because hair grows in different stages , it must be in the anagen stage for laser hair removal to work .
