Lumea users - do you skip some months? Or have you stopped? What happens?

I've been using the Lumea for a couple of years to amazing effect, no hairs left except for a few around my knees (which are a bit darker) and one or two stragglers under each arm. I use it every 4 weeks but I find it takes such a long time to do my legs that I really can't be arsed with it.

I skipped my November and February sessions and hairs have not resprouted. I'm tempted to give it a miss this month as well. But will I regret it and be back to doing it every 2 weeks come summer?

I haven't done it since falling pregnant approx 9 months ago and my legs are still pretty smooth. I've got some fine regrowth on my legs but no thick ones have sprouted through.

My underarm hairs have grown back a bit though but I'm sure a couple of sessions will take care of that. I did my bikini line as well, the top bit and hardly any regrowth there. Hoping it will just take 3 or 4 sessions to get back to where I was!

I tend to do it every couple of months now, possibly leaving it longer in the winter (although there was a thread telling us to charge the unit regularly to prolong the life of the unit, I forget the details). No dark hairs grow now, just some downy ones on my shins.
