I had electrolysis of my upper lip, chin and eye brows. I went every other week for about six months. That was about 15 years ago, I go every once in awhile now for touch-ups. I had 6 or 7 laser treatments on my underarms and bikini area.
A dermatologist can also help you make the best decision.
What is your skin type and complexion? This is also something to take into consideration.
Hope this is helpful, Elizabeth
