Woman from 98040 Zip Code Receives Laser Hair Removal Treatment to Eliminate Hair on Upper Lip and Chin

A woman from Mercer Island came to the Island Dermatology office because she wanted to eliminate the hair that was on her upper lip and chin area. She has tried shaving this hair off for many years, but it left her skin irritated and she had to shave every day. She also tried waxing her upper lip and chin, but this process was extremely painful and only lasted several days.

She was looking for a successful treatment that would last longer than a few days. She did not want to have to worry about this unwanted hair on a regular basis. The woman was hoping to find a dermatology treatment that would only need to be done every couple of weeks or once a month. She also wanted a treatment that was not as painful as the waxing had been. She scheduled an appointment with the dermatologist, to evaluate her unwanted hair and develop a dermatology treatment plan.

After evaluating her unwanted hair and skin type, the dermatologist recommended the FDA approved broadband light procedure, laser hair removal. Each procedure took less than 30 minutes, and the woman did not experience any significant pain. After the first treatment, the women noticed that it took much longer for the hair on her chin and upper lip to grow back. Now after having a laser hair removal treatment done once a month for the past six months, she has not experienced any hair growth at all, in between treatments.
