What is Excessive Hair?

The human body grows hair in all but a few places. For some people, much of their body hair is unnoticeable or doesn’t bother them. For other people, their body hair is excessive or unwanted. Some people simply grow more hair than others or grow hair that is darker, thicker, or more prominent. Some people also have medical or genetic conditions that increase the growth of hair, especially in visible or unusual areas.

What Causes Excessive Hair?

Body hair is perfectly normal and made to protect and warm the body. However, factors like genetics and hormone levels can impact the amount of hair grown and its location. Excess hair growth can sometimes be linked to an underlying medical condition, causing additional stress for patients.

What are My Treatment Options for Excessive Hair?

There are a variety of hair removal methods available like shaving, plucking, waxing, sugaring, or epilating, but these methods can be costly to your budget and your time. Many patients also dislike the labor involved and having to plan around hair removal for certain events or activities.

One of the most effective and long-term solutions to excessive hair is laser hair removal. Laser hair removal works by disrupting the hair growth mechanisms in the skin with laser energy, leading to a long-term reduction in hair growth. Over time, laser hair removal can drastically reduce the need for manual removal methods.

How Can I Maintain My Results from Excessive Hair Treatment?

Laser hair removal typically requires a package of treatments for best results, and our team will ensure you have a complete schedule for your goals. Although laser hair removal produces long-term results, it’s always possible that hair can resume growing because of the way the hair growth cycle works. You can undergo maintenance treatments as needed to continually treat the follicles at every stage. In some cases, laser hair removal will simply make it easier and less labor-intensive to remove hair at home. Our team will ensure you know what sort of results you can expect during your consultation.
