Body hair can sometimes be an affectation, while other times it might prove to be a cosmetic nuisance. Plucking unwanted body hair with a tweezer, selective waxing, or shaving might be able to make short-term edits to excess body hair. Yet the follicles will continue to grow new hair.

A laser hair removal treatment at Institute for Plastic Surgery’s clinic can help edit excess body hair for more of a long-term solution. Common areas that people want editing often include the legs, bikini area, underarms, stomach, arms, back, shoulders, neck, face or upper lip, chin, and sideburns.

Dr. Otis Allen can assess the areas you would like addressed in a consultation appointment. This will help to define your personal goals and determine the overall number and duration of the laser hair removal session.

During the treatment he will use a special laser light to penetrate hair follicles and inhibit future hair growth. It works by generating a tiny 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 Bloomington, Illinois, area and you are struggling with unwanted hair in a specific area of your body, you should call 309.827.3881 to set up a consultation appointment at Institute for Plastic Surgery’s clinic.
