I wanted to know how many weeks should be between each session when getting a Brazilian or bikini line laser? I read that the hair grows in 10 week cycles and getting it done every 4 weeks is a waste of time and money. Is this correct?
I also wanted to ask if it is worth starting my laser treatment if I know that I will only have time to get in 4 (or maybe less treatments) before I go overseas for a year or so… Is it better to wait until I come back so that I can ensure I have time to have how-ever many sessions I require? Or will it still reduce the hair significantly after 4 sessions and I can simply continue when I return without having wasted anything?
(Note: My skin in white and my hair is dark).


Usually we do treatments at 6 to 8 week intervals for the bikini or brazillian. The interval between sessions varies between areas, and depends on the length of the hair cycle in that area.
