How Long We Should Wait between Each Laser Treatment For Hair Removal
There is no fixed criterion for interval between the sittings. Generally 6-8 weeks is needed in between the intial sittings. Later-on the interval will increase.
You can say it;s working for you if the number(density) is reduced, or regrowth rate is slow i.e. around 2-4 months or the hairs are thinning.
Generally 60-70% hair reduction can be expected after 6-8 sittings. Regrowth is in the tune of 10-20% for which you need maintainence sittings.

Thanks for sharing your views

While the area in question may appear to be fully healed externally within 2 weeks, the healing process is actually much longer, at about six weeks. During that time, the body’s lymphatic system is doing its job of removing the ink that has been broken up by the laser.

Your final result from each session will not be apparent until around the six-week mark. Therefore, six weeks is the recommended time between sessions. Going back under the laser sooner than this can result in over-treating the area, which can mean damage to the skin, not to mention unnecessary discomfort and expense.

Hair grows in cycles and that means you should wait for the next cycle of hair to grow out. I need to get laser hair removal on my neck but have held off due to the economy.

I need laser hair removal on my neck too! I think it's only a couple hundred bucks per treatment. The problem is some people need multiple treatments.
