Q:

Will laser surgery for acne effect the hair growth of face like beard???

A:

 

 Usually, the answer would be no but, a very deep resurfacing could damage hair follicles. The type of laser, depth of treatment and type of acne scar you are treating are all dependent factors as to wether this could occur. Please address your concern with your laser practitioner. If they cannot answer your question consider a consult with one of the many members of the ASAPS. Best,
