Why is my hair growing back after laser?

Do you regret laser hair removal?

What happens if you don’t shave before laser hair removal?

In addition, if the hair hasn’t been shaved properly, treatment will not be as effective, and it may result in small temporary grazes on the top layer of your skin.
Does hair go away after laser hair removal?

The repeated treatments are usually necessary because hair growth and loss naturally occur in a cycle, and laser treatment works best with hair follicles in the new-growth stage.
