Interval of laser hair removals with LightSheer Duet?
South Korea, KR
1 year ago
Most sources says 6 weeks, but my derm recommended 4 weeks. Could that be right or should I wait at least 6 weeks? If I do, could I miss the optimal growth phase for hair removal? I'm between a Fitzpatrick 3 & 4; olive, fair in the winter, and dark in the summer (burned I think 4 times in my whole life). I get PIH easily and it fades slowly so I asked my derm to be conservative in selecting the settings. Also, I take spironolactone for hormonal acne. I know it affects hair growth but not really sure how (inhibits hair growth, slows it, etc??) 2nd opinions please?

Interval for laser hair removal
Intervals for laser hair removal depend less on the laser and more on your rate of growth. 4-6 weeks for face / 8-10 weeks for body is common.
