Changing your hairline could create an overall change in appearance.

Are foreheads the next hairy taboo?

Women, and their hair, are targeted every day by media.Flip through the pages of the latest magazine and you will see an ad for razors or shaving gel cream. Turn on the television to see the bouncing, shiny curls of this week's "it celebrity". Hair is everywhere, or rather it used to be.

According to Inquisitr, Kim Kardashian is attributing her ever-changing look to laser hair removal, not plastic surgery. She said in a recent People interview that her forehead had always been a problem-area for her. With "the hairiest" forehead, she waxed the undesired hair in high school and later began to laser it off.

Hair removal was the third most popular nonsurgical procedure in 2013, said The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (ASAPS).

When removing hair from the face, it is best to space out treatments in four week increments.Baby hair is finer and fuzzier, which can make it hard for the laser to pick up on during treatment. This could result in needing more treatments over an extended period of time.

Hairline treatments can also be tricky because you don't want to overdo it and dramatically alter the shape. This can result in an overall change of appearance to face and eyebrows.

The effects of this kind of hair removal can be seen drastically in pictures of Kardashian between 2007 and now.

If you are curious about this type of procedure or would like to have a more personalized approach, consult Long Island cosmetic surgery experts at Marotta Facial Plastic Surgery. A board certified facial plastic surgeonlike Dr. James Marotta can help you achieve your desired changes.
