How many Ellipse treatments do I need?
Every hair has a life cycle; it grows for a period of time, falls out, rests and then starts to grow again. Only hairs that are growing can be treated – so
you need to repeat the treatment at intervals until all hair follicles have been treated while growing. The length and timing of the growth cycles are affected by numerous factors such as body site, hormone levels and age. Clinical studies have shown that typically 3-6 treatments are needed, and the intervals between treatments are typically 1-3 months.
