Thanks for your question and we always recommend that you have a consultation with a board certified dermatologist or plastic surgeon to get the realistic facts and to set realistic expectations, which I am thinking may not have happened in your case.  Laser hair removal works over time, multiple sessions are needed, and maintenance after that.  There is no set this will take this many treatments – no one, in fact knows how many treatments one will need and when the maintenance period for someone kicks in. Everyone is different and almost everyone responds differently to the lasers that we use.  One must understand the facts and then proceed with a provider who understands the concepts, the devices, the hair cycles, and the realistic expectations from the procedure.

Inefficent Laser Hair Removal Treatment

We recommend finding an experienced and reputable provider in your area with updated equipment.  Calibration and power of the laser is important for a safe, comfortable and effective treatment.  Find out what laser they will use and if it is under a maintenance contract.  If their laser isn’t calibrated on a regular basis or is underpowered, your treatment may be painful or inefficient.
