Excess hair might appear anywhere on the body. Most common places include on the legs, back, chest and face. Both men and women suffer from excess hair and it can be a constant source of frustration and irritation for many people of varying ages.
The problem with excess hair is that many people believe it looks unsightly and unattractive. Women in particular will know from shaving their legs and armpits that body hair in these areas is not generally accepted, so they might use razors or wax the hair off.
The problem with these traditional methods is that they are only temporary, giving relief only for a short time frame before the hair grows back thicker and stronger. Constant shaving and plucking also encourages ingrown hairs and skin irritation – another reason why you should invest in a more permanent, effective and safe method of hair removal.
Treatments for Excess Hair
Laser treatment affects hair in the active growth phase (anagen stage). The laser beam is made up of precisely controlled pulses of energy which are absorbed by the melanin or pigment in the hair and reaches into the active hair follicles that lie beneath the skin. The energy heats the hair, right down to the bottom of the root, safely destroying it without damaging surrounding tissue or skin.
At Premier Laser & Skin Clinic, we only utilise FDA approved medical laser which are far more safe and effective for all skin types. Our laser hair removal treatments can be performed on any body parts and suit male and female.
Electrolysis is a method of removing individual hairs from the face or body. The treatment involves the use of a very fine, small probe about the size of an eyelash, which is inserted into the hair follicles. It is here where a very small energy current is discharged, which helps to destroy the blood vessel and starve it of any nourishment.
We are using this method to remove grey, blonde and white hair mainly on the face areas.
