No. The laser hair removal is absorbed by hair follicles that grow dark hair. There are not late effects. However complete loss of hair growth is likely to decrease oil production because these glands are part of the hair follicle. The laser hair removal effects are prolonged but temporary. Hair growth returns usually within 2-5 years.
Are there any side effects that occur years after laser hair removal? On glands for example?
