Hello and thank you for your query.

Sligthly confused with 'Laser' or 'Vaser' from your question. I take it as Laser, correct me if wrong.

From your question, you state you had laser treatment to your neck 2 months ago but now are experiencing irregular growth of your beard. I assume you are referring to hair growth on your face in referring to "beard." My question to you is - how large are the spots you are referring to on your beard and are there any skin changes such as a rash in the area on your face which you are referring to?

Sometimes a mild fungal infection of the skin can cause small patches of irregular hair growth. I would expect any hair which was not treated with the laser to grow normally. As for your beard, I would otherwise expect the hair to grow again as it had in the past.

I await your followup.
