I know that there is not a lot of established data on paradoxical hypertrichosis, but does anyone know if the laser stimulated hair growth is actually NEW hair or if it has just accelerated the cycle of a resting hair making ALL the hairs in one area come up to the surface of the skin?

I don't think it's NEW hair. I think it stimulates vellus hair that is already there to become more like terminal hair.

It could be a little of both??? It could be a new hair growth cycle coming to the surface. It could be that hair follicles are waking up from the low fluences used? Some areas are prone to laser hair stimulation, naturally. Whatever the cause, zap it until it it is not appropriate to use laser anymore and then switch to electrolysis.

I was at a conference this past Sunday and the speaker, who is a laser expert, said that paradoxical laser hair stimulation is a rare occurrence. He only saw two cases in ten years.

Ppffff! It is not rare. I see it a lot in my practice. I'm cleaning up many messes on clients who are very depressed because laser stimulated more hair to grow on their face, shoulders or upper arms, especially.

I showed him a picture of my present case and I had many more that I could have showed him if he wanted to dig further with me.

I recommend all of my laser clients to do the following:
1. All must done the test patching each for different areas to find the proper high setting. Then wait for 48 hrs to a week (depending on case by case) minimum before full treatment can commence
2. First 4 laser hair removal (LHR) sessions must be strictly done btw 4-6 weeks apart. Some of my clients require less than 4 sessions
3. Wait for another 3 months to see if they require more LHR (please visit the following link to fore more detail => https://www.facebook.com/upweylaser/posts/648363458837618 )
