A patient asked 2 years ago
I have a really bad problem. The girl who was performing the procedure did it in the left side of my beard (only one session) and should be just the cheeks. Now a month ago the beard grown just in some parts of my left side. Will it grow back again to normal? How much time should I wait to notice changes or lose hope? Your answers will be really appreciated

Regret after Laser Treatment on Beard

 
Hi and thank you for your question! Laser is only effective on hair follicles that are actively growing and at any given time, usually not more than 10-20% of hair follicles are in this phase. Hence, for best results we recommend around 6 sessions of laser treatment for most areas. If you had just 1 session of laser, the vast majority of the hair follicles in your beard are most likely unaffected and you should expect near full regrowth after a few months. I hope it helps and good luck!
