How many hairs can be treated per hour?

I have had about five laser treatments on my upper body over the last two years. The hair has come back thinner, but has not gone away. On some places, primarily on the back of my neck, I want the hair completely gone, so I have now begun considering electrolysis. I’m trying to get an estimate of how many hours I can expect this to take. Approximately how many hairs can be treated per hour with professional electrolysis? Approximately how many hours can I expect the back of my neck to take with professional electrolysis(I would estimate the size to be about as big as half a sheet of paper). Is this my best option for the areas I want completely gone.


A lot of variables there… hard to give you any numbers, without seeing you in person…

I think you are going to have to find a good electro (good luck!) and just get it done, go back when you need to, until you don’t need to… then you will be hair free…

Bummer about the LASER experience, but hey, you are not the only one… <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif" alt="" />


The best thing to do is go to the site: and there are estimates listed.

From our experience in the office, over the past 5 years, we have found that all x-laser paients had an increase of hair growth after laser treatment. We average two new x-laser patients per week from the tri-state area and they all witness the same drastic results. Remember it takes three to five years before all or most of the hair starts to grow back.

A good and experienced electrologist would have to see your case before they could make an adequate estimate.
