Should I do another round of laser hair removal If it didn't work the first time?

#LaserHairRemoval treatments should be limited, and hair should not grow back thicker after time has passed
Laser hair removal should provide permanent and significant reduction in the number of hairs in the treated areas within three to six treatments. If this is not happening, it is usually because the treatment parameters with the first treatment were not powerful enough to kill the hairs but just enough to stun them, causing them to grow back slowly and, for a little while, finer.
For a more detailed explanation of this, see below.

Laser hair reduction
It is likely you may need several more treatments. I recommend you work with an experienced laser physician for the best results.
Laser Hair Removal maintenance
In our practice, we generally will suggest that a maintenance treatment be done every three to six months to maintain the results you achieved in your initial package. I always like to make sure to note that Laser Hair Removal is permanent reduction of hair not permanent removal of hair.

Laser hair removal not as effective as I want
It is possible that you just need more treatments. It won't remove all the hair, just about 75%. Further treatments should give better results.
Laser Hair and Re-Growth
It is possible that you have a hormonal imbalance which is making the hairs grow back or you had the wrong laser used for your skin type. Please consult a board certified dermatologist who is an expert in laser hair removal. Best, Dr. Green
