(Category 1 hair removal TOTAL=25hrs; Category 2= hair removal=25hrs, skin rejuvenation=50hrs, superficial vascular lesions=50hrs, superficial pigmented lesions=75hrs TOTAL= 200hrs; Category 3= hair removal=25hrs, skin rejuvenation=50hrs, superficial vascular lesions=50hrs, superficial pigmented lesions=75hrs, tattoo removal=100rs TOTAL =300 hours.
