Hair is removed far below the skin line resulting in long lasting smoothness and a thinner, softer, tapered end.


Hair is cut at skin level so sharp stubble appears within a few days. Shaving can cause numerous side effects: cuts and nicks, ingrown hairs, razor burn, irritation and redness.

Approximately 85% of all hairs are in the Anagen phase at any one time. This phase can vary from two to six years. Hair grows approximately 10 cm per year and individual hairs are unlikely to grow more than one meter long.


At the end of the Anagen phase the hair enters the Catagen phase which lasts about one or two weeks, during the Catagen phase, the hair follicle shrinks to about 1/6 of the normal length. The lower part is destroyed and the dermal papilla breaks away to rest below the skin.

The Telogen phase follows the Catagen phase and normally lasts about 5-6 weeks. During this time the hair does not grow but stays attached to the follicle while the dermal papilla stays in a resting phase below. Approximately 10-15 percent of all hairs are in this phase at any one time.
