Sorry, not going to happen. Once a hair follicle is destroyed by laser hair removal, that hair follicle cannot regrow hair under any circumstances. In order for Propecia, Minoxidil, Rogaine, Latisse, etc. to work, you have to have an active hair follicle capable of producing hair. Yours are destroyed so using any of those will be totally pointless.
