UNWANTED HAIR

Unwanted hair is probably the most concerning aesthetic problem. Women around the world had been fighting against unwanted hair for ages. It is not uncommon even for men now a days to be involved in the same battle. Most of the times excessive hair growth (also called Hirsutism or Hypertrichosis) is not a disease but rather an aesthetic problem. On the other hand, sometimes excessive hair growth may represent a medical problem, especially when it develops suddenly and accompanied by other features like acne, obesity, or a deepening voice. Such conditions include: ovarian and adrenal gland tumors, Cushing’s syndrome, or some medications (steroids, phenytoin, minoxidil). Each particular case of excessive hair growth requires careful evaluation by a physician for appropriate intervention. There are variety of ways do deal with unwanted hair:

  • Shaving, waxing, plucking, or chemical depletion-destroy the hair shaft but leave the follicle intact.
  • Bleaching-makes the unwanted hair less visible.
  • Electrolysis-destroys individual hair follicle one by one, using an electrical current (effective but very time-consuming).
  • Laser hair removal-destroys multiple hair follicles at once, using laser energy.

Each treatment method has its own advantages and disadvantages. Skin type, hair color and texture, client’s age, financial status, and personal expectation should be considered prior to any intervention. Laser hair removal is becoming more and more popular lately. There are numerous types of lasers available for laser hair removal so the results of the treatment and safety may vary significantly.
