Hair grows in 3 cycles called anagen, Catagen and telogen. The anagen hair is the active or growing hair which is attached to the blood supply in the follicle. The other 2 stages are shedding and resting. ONLY hair in the anagen phase can be effectively, permanently destroyed during laser treatment which is why multiple treatments are required at certain intervals.
