This is due to the laser most and only effectively disables hair that is in the Anagen Phase not disables hairs that is in other growth phase. An example is scalp hair, there is a higher percentage of hair in the Anagen Phase, normally about 70% to 80%. Those hairs will never grow back in about 1 to 2 years only after one session LHR treatment.
