We encourage our patients to try to remain on schedule for their laser hair removal treatments (every 6-8 weeks on average, but depends on body part) because we have experienced that it leads to better results.
The reason for this is that we are trying to treat the hair that will return after the treatment at a time when it is in the growth phase. At any one time, approximately 30% - 40% of your hair will be in a resting phase, meaning there is no hair in the follicle. By treating you on a defined schedule, we avoid the randomness of the hair growth cycle and treat you at a time when most of the hair should have returned after your previous treatment.
While it's not the end of the world if you are off schedule, you will receive the best results when sticking to the period defined by your practitioner.
