No results from laser hair removal?

25 year old male who has undergone 6 sessions of laser hair removal on chest + abdomen at LaserDerm skincare center in Broomall pa. Hair falls out w each session but in 6 weeks all grows back. Practitioners increase laser intensity each session. They use gentlemax laser, and I can certainly feel a sting. I have dark hair and relatively light skin. But 6-8 weeks post 6th session and no significant reduction. Is it problem with the laser or simply genetics? Curious to why hairs keep growing back

After 6 LHR chest treatments, little results

I think the laser is a good one for you. It is a matter of more treatments I guess.  Please discuss with your provider. Chest/abdomen hair can take up to 10 or 12 treatments.

It sounds like they are using the right laser but without reviewing the settings it is difficult to know.  I suggest you get a consult with a board certified dermatologist with is an expert with laser hair removal.  Best, Dr. Green
