Sorry to have left out some details in my original post.
Here goes: I acheived a gradual hair reduction on my underarms with each treatment. I only have to go every six months for a “touch-up” so that the few, and I do mean few, hairs that come up can get cleared. I do this for myself and not out of necessity.
As for the legs I guess that I am fortunate that the GentleLase clinic I deal with only charges 400 to 500 dollars (canadian) for treatments. This includes legs, feet and bikini. I can also opt to have my legs done in two sessions (upper one month the lower the next). This allows for a more forgiving financial commitment.
As it is understood that LHR is for a permament hair reduction it is therefore necessary to assume that a number of treatments are required to acheive the desired results.
I may be speaking out of turn but If I understand correctly it is the hair’s growth at various stages that determine how effective the treatments will be.
Good luck with your decisions. Might sound weird but LHR is addictive.
