What I have seen is tweezing does not cause hair to grow back thicker. Changes in hair texture are likely caused by hormonal and genetic factors.

Plus also there is no guarantee for permanent hair removal. This does help to reduce the hair over the years of very frequent waxing for a lot of skin and hair types however for some, this won't make any difference.

Other than this you can also try Laser hair removal which works by heating the hair follicles to stop new hairs from growing. This puts the hair follicles in a state of dormancy for a long period of time — much longer than with shaving and waxing. I have personally tried Laser at home and it has shown tremendous effects and the hair growth is definitely reduced. I got it from here, you can see -

I think you are right about it varying by person and body area. I had a unibrow and plucked it religiously and eventually the hair there stopped growing. That was unexpected. I've also waxed my legs for years (not waxing now but have just invested in an epilator) and saw no difference one way or the other in hair growth.

If you have the time to watch my video on hair tweezing ... watch it until the very end. At the end you will see my OLD hairless leg that has never been shaved or waxed, next to a 19-year old hairy leg. My legs were SUPER hairy and now ... nothing.

There are many reasons for observable phenomenon and it's usually NOT what we assume was the cause. "Seeing is believing" but basing fact on observation alone most always is wrong. That's the basis of the scientific method.

The eyebrows are one area that repeated plucking can lead to the demise of some hair follicles. Thus some women have overplucked their eyebows and found later none would grow at all. It;s not a sure thing though, and most just end up with coarser more deeply rooted hairs .
