How does hair removal with elōs work?
Hair follicles are precisely targeted using the unique elōs combination of bi-polar radio frequency and light energies. elōs penetrates deep into the dermis, heating and treating the follicle with maximum effectiveness, for long lasting hair removal.
Are any preparations required prior to treatment?
Not necessarily! One of the biggest advantages with mē is that it can be an "all in one" hair removal system if you chose to use the epilator or shaver accessories. As mē passes over the skin surface, hair can be simultaneously removed by a permanent solution (elōs) and an immediate solution (the epilator or shaver accessories are sold separately).
when can I expect to see results?
To ensure permanent hair reduction results (89% hair reduction after 4 treatments) - you must follow the full recommended protocol of 4 treatments, with intervals of 2 weeks (please refer to user manual). In some cases, more than 4 treatments may be required, as physiological reaction varies from person to person. After the first 4 treatments you can treat your desired area only as hair appears according to recommended treatment times. As you progress – you will notice longer and longer intervals between these touch up treatments. Immediately following treatment, your skin will appear smooth and hair free (it is recommended to use the mē epilator and shaver accessory for immediate results with no preparations required).
What happens if I didn’t treat the first 4 treatments every 2 weeks according to protocol?
Our protocol has been clinically proven by our team of scientists in clinical trials supervised by elōs experienced physicians to promise the best results and your quickest way to permanently smooth skin. If used less often than every 2 weeks results may vary. It's never too late to get back to the suggested protocol - perform treatments in 2 week intervals until hair growth reduction is achieved (if a long break was taken it is recommended to restart the protocol). Once hair re-growth is permanently reduced use the mē for touch-ups as needed (on average after 4 treatments).
I used mē last week and still see hair… why would this happen?
This may sometimes appear as hair can be growing up to two weeks after your last treatment as the hair shaft is casted out from the skin. You will be surprised to see that it will actually fall out naturally. It’s also possible that some of your hair is still growing because it wasn’t affected by the treatment which could be caused by different hair growth cycles or that the elōs wasn't clearly applied to all areas of your skin. Remember to treat the area according to the FULL time recommended passing over the full surface to promise better results! (Please refer to the user guide)

Does using mē hurt?
Given that the correct elōs level was chosen according to your skin tone and the instructions were followed, using mē should NOT be painful. Sometimes, a sensation of warmness or tickle may be felt. To get accustomed to elōs energy, we advise that you make test flashes, using the lowest recommended elōs level on any part of your body below the neck. Once you are comfortable with this you can increase the elōs intensity setting.
Adding the epilator accessory to your device might add a small effect of prickling pain similar to other epilators in the market.
