LASER CLINIC - How many Ellipse treatments do I need?

Laser Clinic with Ellipse IPL


Hair growth is cyclical as hair follicles go through resting and growing phases. Only follicles in the growth phase contain hair and are destroyed by the heat. Resting hair follicles need to enter the growth phase before they can be destroyed by the Ellipse treatment. It is, therefore, necessary to repeat the treatment at intervals until all hair follicles have been through the growth phase.

The length and the timing of the growth cycles are affected by numerous factors such as body site, hair density, thickness, ethnic origin, hormonal status and age. Usually 3-6 treatments are needed and the intervals between treatments are typically 1-3 months.
