Limelight and Genesis to men's beards

+2

There will be some patchy hair loss when Limelight (IPL) is used in the beard area. Not as much with the Genesis, though. But you should expect that if you are treating that area, you will have hair loss. If you don't want that, don't do it there!

Limelight can cause hair loss

+1

There is a potential for hair loss with Limelight and Genesis in the beard area if the hair is dark, but not if it is blonde, grey or white.
