What To Do About Hair That Comes Back After Laser

Ok, so now you know that hair regrowing after laser treatment is inevitable. Though the hair that comes back isn’t as thick, strong, or dark as the previous one, still it’s annoying and you’ll definitely need to remove it in one way or another.

Read below for the best ways to remove hair that comes back after laser hair removal treatment.


1 || Sandpaper

Yes, you heard right! If you are looking for a safe and inexpensive way for hair removal at home then sandpaper is your best bet. It is easily found at any hardware store. Look for one that is very fine in texture. How to use? Simply wet the piece of the sandpaper and the part of your body where you would like to remove the hair.

This technology is much weaker than laser this is why it is recommended for regrowing hair after you finish your laser treatment sessions.


4 || Q-Switched Laser

The Q-Switch Nd Yag Laser devices are specific to certain skin treatments. The skin is exposed to the laser light emitted by this laser device. This high-intensity laser light targets the hair and changes its color.


5 || Touch-Up Treatment

After you have completed your course, you may still need touch-up sessions 1 – 3 times a year to maintain your results. The number of sessions you’ll need differs from one person to another depending on many factors such as skin type, hair density, and any underlying medical issues you may have.
