Hair grows in three different cycles, the ellipse permanent hair reduction can only successfully work if the hair is treated during its growth cycle. It is therefore recommended to undergo a course of 3-6 treatments ensuring that you leave at least 4- 6 weeks between each session initially and then only repeat treatment as and when hair returns.
It is important that no other method of hair removal is undertaken prior to booking your appointment and during the course of the treatment as this can affect the succession of the treatment. The same rule applies to any sun treatments, as a tan will raise the pigment level in the skin and have a severe effect on the treatments' success.
The treatment sensation varies from area to area and from client to client. As the light energy is absorbed by melanin, the sensation that is felt depends on upon the amount of melanin found in the epidermis and the hairs. Most clients describe the sensation as quite moderate almost like the snapping of a rubber band, which only lasts for a short moment.
We can offer treatment for all skin types and hair types and with there is little post-treatment care required. Some people with sensitive skin may benefit from using a soothing gel or Aloe Vera for a few hours following treatment.
