Anlagen phase: growth phase of the hair where the melanin is more concentrated.
Catagen phase: involution phase, in which the hair is already well-formed leads to the more superficial layers of the epidermis, moving away from the hair papilla.
Telogen phase: terminal period during which the hair is still present but the vital activities have completely ceased.
The effectiveness of Epil Evo is maximum in anlagen phase hairs as the concentration of melanin is maximum. It is estimated that a person in a given moment, has only 30% of the hairs in the anlagen phase. For this reason they are required more treatment sessions at different times to ensure that all the hair asset of the area is affected follicle in the anagen phase.
The number of treatments should also consider:
- hair color,
- treatment zone,
- hormonal status
- and other factors.
The number of treatments that we recommend in order to have permanent results is 6/8 sessions but it is still indicative because it varies from subject to subject.
How it works?
Epil-Evo hits the melanin in the hair bulb. The light beam emitted from the probe is absorbed in a selective way by the melanin in the hair bulb. For a process called selective photothermolysis, the light energy is transformed into heat energy and causes a strong overheating inside the bulb, causing a real explosion of the cells of the hair bulb. This procedure causes the damage and the consequent elimination of the bulb, avoiding the regrowth of hair.
