I had laser done on my face over the course of 14 months. Almost all the dark hairs were removed, and so far I've seen little regrowth. about 4 months later I began electrolysis to remove the persistent dark hairs , and the grey ones. After 5 months on electrolysis , I am starting to see progress, as evidenced by a thinning of regrowth. Overall I am pleased with the effectiveness of the laser in performing a sort of broad clearing of my beard. For a complete clearing however, electrolysis will be finishing the job.
As I learn more about electrolysis however I have some concerns - pertinent to my practitioner - that I'll ask about at another time.
