Will Laser Genesis Cause Permanent Hair Reduction?

Will Laser Genesis result in permanent hair reduction in the areas hit by the laser? If so, is there a shield or something that can be used to protect the hairline area when treating erythematous scarring near the facial hairline?

Laser Gensis seems safe for hair

We have been using Laser Genesis for almost two years with great success. We have yet to have a problem with permanent changes in hair growth. It is possible that you could have some singeing of the hair, but there should be no permanent affect to the hair. So, I don't think you need to worry about that.

This is very unlikely as the pulse is too shallow. Thank you for your question and good luck with everything.
