The human body is rife with millions of hair follicles. While this is typically seen as a leftover element from the evolutionary process, genetics can sometimes play a role in hair follicle density and location.

Using a simple tweezers to extract hair from the follicle can be uncomfortable. At the same time, waxing and shaving can also cause chronic skin irritation. In the end, the existing hair follicles will still continue to grow new hair.

If you find yourself in a situation like this and you are looking for a more long-term solution, you should consider scheduling a laser hair removal treatment with Dr. Natalie Driessen and her team. This simple outpatient treatment can help edit excess body hair on the legs, bikini area, underarms, stomach, arms, back, shoulders, neck, face or upper lip, chin, and sideburns.

The treatment involves using a special laser light to penetrate hair follicles to inhibit future hair growth. This generates a minuscule area of intense heat that damages the hair follicle and retards future hair growth. You might need multiple several treatments to fully clear the air of active hair follicles.

If you live in the Palm Desert, California, area and you have unwanted body hair that needs to be addressed, you should call (760) 773-6616 to set up a consultation appointment at Dermatology and Plastic Surgery Specialists’s clinic.
