Is there any treatment for paradoxical hair growth resulting from Diode laser? (Photo)

Parodoxical hair growth
This rare event is generally confined to the periphery of treated areas, where lower levels of energy from scattered laser beams actually can stimulate hair follicles. The fact that this is occurring at all, and that is happening throughout the treated areas, suggests to me that the laser is being used at very low energy settings. I think you should consult a dermatologist with a higher energy laser, such as an alexandrite (Gentlelase) and the know-how to give you permanent hair removal with just 3 to 6 treatments.
All the best, Dr. Clark
You Still Have Hair Removal Options
You need treatment with Vaniqa and a different laser hair removal device. I recommend a formal evaluation with a laser hair removal expert. Best, Dr. Emer
