first what is your skin type. Lighter colored skin with darker hair tends to do better. Any colored skin with thick dark hair also tends to do well. Medium to darker skin with fine hair does not do as well.
Second what is the experience of the provider in terms of number of treatments as well as your specific skin type. If the setting is low you may not see much improvement and if the setting is too high , then there is a risk of pigment changes and burns. It is important for the consumer to ascertain this from the provider
duration between treatments is based on the area. Hair on the face tends to grow faster and treatments are typically done 1 month apart while on the legs the duration can be from 6 to 8 weeks. 10 weeks does seem a bit long.
I would discuss cuss this with your provider and also relay your expectations
all the best
