Is laser hair reduction permanent?

Your genetics are an important factor in determining this outcome. While some patients require a full course procedure, others respond faster and require less treatments.

One of the most common misconceptions about laser hair removal is that the hair will never grow again after completing the hair removal procedure. The truth is the growth of new hair can still take place just not as full as before. Some medical conditions and medicine like Hypothyroid, Polycystic Ovarian syndrome can trigger the production of excess hormones causing continuous hair growth.
