I am a 28-year-old female and I have a very pronounced widow’s peak. I enjoy wearing my hair pulled back in a ponytail during the summer months but I am very self conscious of my hairline and tired of wearing bangs. Is laser hair removal in this area a good alternative?
Yes, you can do laser hair removal in this area. You can also take another approach which involves doing hair transplant work to change the widow’s peak hairline to a more natural looking hairline that you like better.
Again, to summarize, you can do one of two things. You can either do laser hair removal in the area to change the hairline but that would have to be repeated at a later date because it is not permanent, or you can have hair transplanted in the area to change the hairline itself, which would be permanent and would also be an excellent way of solving the problem.
