Are Touchups a Good Idea?

Some laser hair removal places do touchups 2-3 weeks after your visit for free. They say it's good since it gets hairs that were missed or the laser wasn't effective on it the first time around. Others say they don't believe in them as they are dangerous because your skin hasn't healed from the original treatment. Thoughts?

You definitely should do touch-ups since there is often re-growth into an area later on.  Please consult a board certified dermatologist who is an expert with laser hair removal for the best results.  Best, Dr. Green
