Unwanted hair can develop on a variety of body parts including your legs, bikini area, underarms, stomach, arms, back, shoulders, and neck. Some people are also dissatisfied with the presence and density of facial hair on the upper lip, chin, or sideburns.

Measures like waxing and shaving can provide a relatively short-term solution to the problem of unwanted body hair. Yet in the long term, it can prove frustrating and potentially cause skin irritation.

Fortunately, the cosmetic surgery specialists at Dermatology and Plastic Surgery Specialists can address many of these problems with a laser hair removal treatment. Your personal goals and vision for the specific body part will determine the overall number of required laser hair removal sessions.

The laser hair removal treatment involves Dr. Natalie Driessen using a special laser light to penetrate hair follicles in that area to affect it and inhibit future growth. This generates a minuscule area of intense heat that damages the hair follicle and retards future hair development.

Depending on the area, the size of the follicle, and your genetics, you might need multiple treatments to fully clear the air of active hair follicles. As the years go by a small number of follicles might redevelop, requiring a touchup treatment later.

If you live in the Palm Desert, California, area and you have unwanted hair on a specific area of your body, you should call (760) 773-6616 to schedule a laser hair removal treatment at Dermatology and Plastic Surgery Specialists’s clinic.
