Can I get my hairline reshaped with laser hair removal?

Dr. Andrew Campbell at Quintessa Aesthetic Center

Question: Can I get my hairline reshaped with laser hair removal? I have a very deep widow’s peak and would like that removed.

Answer: You have several options to reshape your natural hairline:

  • Consider a different hairstyle that incorporates fringe or bangs.
  • Try other hair removal methods, like clippers, shaving, waxing or hair-removal creams.
  • Consider laser hair removal.
  • Consider hair restoration treatments or forehead reduction surgery.

Laser hair removal can effectively treat your widow’s peak. Keep in mind, the hair on the head is often more difficult to permanently eradicate than hair on face and body. But through multiple treatments, we can make a very significant improvement on the widow’s peak and hairline area. Another option to consider would be hair restoration where hair from the back of the scalp is transported. But through multiple treatments certainly, we can make a very significant improvement in that area if that is your desire. Another option to consider would be hair restoration where hair from the back of your scalp is transplanted through microfollicular grafting techniques. With this technique, single hairs can be placed along the hairline to give a very natural result and fill in the areas on each side of your widow’s peak, greatly improving your overall hairline.
