Hi Johara, thank you for the question.
The amount of hair removal sessions is determined by a number of factors:
Hair growth cycles: one can only destroy the hair follicle during its growth stage (anagen) and not during its catagen (dormancy) or telogen (resting) stages. To complicate matters further different body areas have different anagen stages – on the face around 65% of the hair follicles are in the anagen stage while in the axilla (under arm area) only 30% of the hair follicles are in the anagen stage.
Hormonal levels: these can have a direct effect on the amount of hair follicles in their growth or dormant/resting stages.
Hair follicle depth
Area of treatment: see above
What the above simply means is that a number of sessions will be necessary and you may need more than 2 to 3 sessions.
