Hair regrowth is a common problem in our practice as well as a frequency complaint from our patients after treatment with pulsed light. In response to those complaints various parameters should be taken into account; among them one has to consider the necessary time for regeneration of pulled- out hair before treatment which varies according to the body area. Causes for real regrowth and apparent regrowth should be carefully evaluated and a balance between appropriate and excessive treatments should be made.
