Will laser hair removal technology reach an evolution point in which even gray hair will be removable from lets say the facial?

area? i was reading on wikipedia that laser hair removal was experimental from the mid 70s to the mid 90s and then got FDA approval. is laser hair removal the most scientifically/technologically/medically advanced hair reduction method available for the foreseeable future in any given part of the world? if someone has it done on the facial area, will they still have to shave every now and then assuming it could potentially make top of the line shaving systems obsolete? can someone tell me.

Thanks for your query. If you have just few grey hairs that can be taken care of with the machines present but if it’s a bunch of it then it’s a little difficult as the laser hair removal machine works on the principle of selective photothermolysis and targets the melanin so if there is no melanin, therefore no reaction. Hopefully it will come
