Is it true that once you go for laser treatment for removal of body hairs, the hairs won't grow back again?

No: There is no such thing as permanent hair removal with lasers. However, you will probably have a significant reduction in the amount of hairs and thickness.

I had endovenous laser treatment (evlt) done on my legs 3 yrs ago and the pain is back. What would cause it?

Recurrent Pain: It could be that the treatment failed and that the vein that was treated is "open" again. Possible that another vein in your leg failed. Possible that a totally different issue, not vein related, is causing your current symptoms. I would suggest you get a follow-up ultrasound by a vein specialist to see if the condition is related to a recurrent vein problem and then go from there. ...Read more

I had laser treatment of hair removal and eye operation 7 years back. I have hair on my chin. Will both cause birth defect in baby if i conceive now?

Not related: Your laser hair removal ; eye operation should have nothing to do (neither positive nor negative) about your ability to conceive. Now if you have abundant hair in wrong places (hirutism) which can be caused by systemic diseases(eg pcod, cushings, androgen secreting tumor, etc), you may have problems conceiving. If you had cataract removed, could have been caused by too much circulating cortisol. ...Read more
