Laser hair removal is a relatively effective method for thick hair. Despite the risk for induction of fine hair growth, application of laser for fine dark hair is sometimes inevitable. We investigate the effects of 755-nm Alexandrite laser on fine dark facial hair and evaluate the induction rates of fine hair growth and case satisfaction. In the present study, the thickening rate of hairs (33.33%) was found to be higher than the previously published rates. However, reduction of hair density can be obtained when the laser sessions are continued.
