That's interesting. Does that mean the hair follicles are still intact?

Depending on how deep the scar tissue is, what tissue it is and the depth of the hair follicles, I've read that dermarolling and applying copper peptides could clear up some of the scarring allowing hair regrowth.

Scar tissue has no blood supply, thus, hair won't grow. Many women have over tweezed their brows so much and incorrectly that now they can't grow any eyebrows. "

Plucking will leave your skin chicken-like. I think laser removal would be the best option.

No no. It's not true. According to Livescience there is no relation between hair growth and plucking. But you should try tweezers or an epilator for the face but not your fingers if you wanna make it done perfectly.

so you are saying that because you read on the internet somewhere that plucking doesnt affect hair growth, that this must be the truth. Well the reality is, that plucking SEVERELY affects hair growth and is one of the primary methods of hair stimulation, also of inbedded and ingrown hairs. You wont find agreement on this fallacy from ANY electrologist on this board, many of whom have been practising for 40 years or more.

To put it bluntly, epilators or tweezers can cause severe damage.In one recent case of electrolysis UNDERTREATMENT (AKA PLUCKING) the client is left with massive and permanent scarring as a result of plucking.This unfortunately is a very common scenario that electrologists see almost every single day of their careers.

Best not to be spreading mistruths as factual. This is definitely the case with your statement.
