I’m a guy. I’m having electrolysis done on my beard/and cheek area, just trying to lower the beard cheek line. I also did 8 laser treatment on the back of my neck. Now there’s only some fine hair growing there.
For the past year and a half, I’ve been noticing some hair loss/thinning (beginning stage) at the temple areas. A dermatologist suggested that I should start applying minoxidil to prevent further hair loss.
I’ve heard that when you apply minoxidil, it can get into your system and cause hair growth on different areas of your body. But others say that it only affects the area where you apply.
My question to experienced electrologists: Can minoxidil interfere with electrolysis process or laser hair removal (thickening existing hair) if I only apply it on my scalp?
