It’s not unusual for women to experience the growth of excessive or unwanted hair on the body or face, and this is usually a condition known as hirsutism. All women have facial and body hair, but whereas this hair is fine and light and virtually unnoticeable, hair caused by hirsutism is darker and coarser.
Hirsutism itself may be triggered by a number of factors such as hormonal fluctuations or PCOS (Polycystic ovarian syndrome). While unwanted hair may hamper your confidence, it can be removed, achieving great results. Our qualified doctor, or skin specialist, will discuss our advanced procedures with you during your comprehensive, no-obligation consultation.
The following can help shed light on whether laser hair removal may be an option for you:
- It can take 6 treatments more, but laser hair removal is permanent, except for on a woman’s face.
- People of all skin colors can safely have laser hair removal, but the person performing the procedure on people who have skin of color should have experience performing laser hair removal on darker skin tones.
- There’s no downtime.
- Men who have constant razor burn or ingrown hairs due to shaving can permanently eliminate their beard with laser hair removal. Once you’re no longer shaving, you won’t be bothered by razor burn or ingrown hairs.
- Laser hair removal won’t work on blonde, white, gray, or red hair because lasers cannot effectively target light-colored hair.
- You’ll need to keep the treated area covered and out of the sun until the skin heals.
- If you have a tan, you must wait for the tan to fade completely before it’s safe to have laser hair removal.
