User rating for this question
Hi doctor, I have a Huge problem. I've been getting laser hair removal on my face for sometime but last week the technician accidentally zapped off a dime size chunk of my hair on my hair. I so depressed. There is absolutely no hair in that area. Will my hair grow back? If so how long will it take ? And what can I use to speed up my hair growth? Thank you in advance

Brief Answer: Considwrations Detailed Answer: Hello and thank you for submitting your question. Laser hair removal requires several sessions to permanently remove hair. As such, there is a nearly a zero percent chance that the hair will not grow back in this particular area since it's the first time it XXXXXXX subjected to the laser. Make sure to eat a healthy diet with good hydration, consider a multivitamin, keep the area moisturized & clean and out of direct sunlight for the time being. I am confident your hair will grow back quite soon. I hope this helps to put your mind at ease after this accident. Thank you again for submitting your question. Take care, Dr G

Brief Answer: Follow up Detailed Answer: Hi again, Using the minoxidil specifically in the area will not cause harm, however it is unlikely to produce a significantly different result compared to letting the hair regrow on its own. Since you have already purchased the product, carefully apply it to the area according to the directions & in the quantity reccomended. Also, make sure to follow the recommendations previously suggested regarding good nutrition and avoiding sunlight to the area. Be well, Dr G
