Can Laser Hair Removal help my problem with excess hair?

So now you wonder why you are experiencing excess hair especially in unwanted places and how you can eliminate the problem with laser hair treatments?

Hormonal imbalances, certain medications and medical conditions often cause excessive body or facial hair.

For instance, a woman might produce too many androgens which can cause male characteristics such as a deeper voice or a wider hair growth pattern. PCOS (Polycystic ovarian syndrome) is another cause of excessive hair commonly referred to as hirsutism. PCOS can lead to cysts forming on the ovaries affecting hormone levels. This causes irregularities in a woman’s cycle resulting in decreased fertility. PCOS is often accompanied by mild-serious acne and can lead to weight gain, fatigue, headaches and more.

Adrenal gland conditions can influence cortisol production also referred to as the ‘stress hormone’ influencing androgen levels in or bodies.

Certain medications can influence hair growth such as minoxidil (a hair growth stimulator), anabolic steroids, testosterone, immunosuppressants, thyroid medication and the contraceptive pill just to name a few.

Another factor is age. Whether you are male or female, hair growth changes with age and hair may show up suddenly in all sorts of unwanted places.

Laser hair removal treatments are proven to be efficient and safe in controlling excessive hair.

Laser hair removal is a more permanent option offering relief for individuals that are suffering from any of the conditions mentioned above and wish to life a hair free life. The cost of laser hair removal has also decreased significantly in recent times. Call your local beauty salon operator who has been removing hair everywhere, using the many different methods available including laser, for an in-depth discussion and consultation to see if laser hair removal is right for you.
