Unwanted Hair Growth

Excessive or unwanted hair growth is a common condition that affects both men and women. In women who suffer with abnormal hair growth that follows a typical “male pattern” it is called hirsutism. Hirsutism is commonly associated with hormonal disorders such as Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) or Metabolic Syndrome, Cushing’s Syndrome and Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia but can be caused by certain tumors, medications, genetics and unknown reasons. Men can also have excessive hair growth in areas such as the back, chest, shoulders, neck, and abdomen. In some cases, excessive hair growth can lead to ingrown hairs and cysts that look similar to acne and can be severe. For both men and women, excessive or unwanted hair growth can cause emotional distress, low self-esteem, and embarrassment.

Desire for cosmetic hair removal has grown significantly over the past decade and new, advanced technologies have allowed most people to achieve excellent and near-permanent results with minimal pain or downtime. In the past the only treatments for hair removal were often times painful, non-permanent procedures such as waxing, shaving, plucking, and electrolysis. Laser hair removal is the current treatment of choice for longer-lasting, safer, minimally painful and effective therapy for most patients.

Depending on your skin type, your clinician will select the perfect laser treatment to achieve hair loss while maintaining safe protocols for your particular skin.
