Widening the forehead
Forehead and hairline
Thank you for submitting your clinical concerns and problem. Indeed, it is a difficult one. The problem with laser hair removal in the forehead is that the hair follicles are very deep and large. They reside in the subcutaneous fat, not the deep dermis, and most lasers – the long-pulse YAG, the 810nm diodes and the 755nm alexandrites – will not be successful in removing this deep, embedded scalp hair. Flaps that can be elevated to ablate the hair follicle from the deep site are generally only moderately successful. Your best bet, even though it’s slow, tedious and painful, is electrolysis. Until some other, more definitive treatment arises, selecting a great electrology centre and focusing on careful radiofrequency ablation of the hair follicles without leading to pinpoint hypopigmentation should be your commitment.

I hope this information has been of some assistance and best of luck.
