You can do as many treatments as you need to achieve the desirable results. Make sure, you do have enough time to heal the skin in between sessions. Usually 4 to 6 weeks between sessions. Do not worry about the readiness; it might last longer than 2 weeks post-procedure. Make sure
to continue the use of after-care products for better healing.
