Curious how many hours it took for each clearance?
Did the client experience any "downtime?"
The first full clearance throughout the beard, upper and lower lip, ears, and neck from the base to the chin (March 2012) took 28 hours, divided into 1, 2 or sometimes 3 hours a day for a period of two weeks. The third week of his stay in Spain served to allow the skin to recover, as it went, and to work in other hidden areas. The guy returned home without anyone noticing that something had happened.
The second full clearance (October 2012) took about 18 hours to re-clean the same areas as the first time. Only this time, my client had not shaved for over a month (just trimmed)
A year later (October 2013), we had to wait a week to take photographs in order to see the remain hairs.
I do not know what you mean by "downtime". I think the lapse of time between the first and second clearance (7 months) is a fairly reasonable time.
