Hi Glynnis, thank you for the question.
The recommended number of treatments is dependent on the degree of improvement that one would like to achieve, the age of the skin, the degree of sun damage, and the skin condition being treated. Generally speaking 2 to 6 sessions may be required but this will vary on the above mentioned factors.
I do think it is a good idea to wait after 3 treatments as full collagen remodeling will be seen 3 to 4 months after the last treatment and one can assess the degree of improvement before further treatments are commenced. I think it is great that you are seeing someone that is conservative and cautious and not trying to oversell the treatment, however there is nothing stopping you in having a fourth treatment (no specific contraindication exists).
