Hair Removal for face and body
Normal vs excessive body and facial hair.
It is normal for all of us to have facial and body hair, depending on our ancestry and genetic predisposition. It is typical for females to have fine hair all over the body, including the face. Some women also notice thicker, darker hairs on the stomach, chin, and chest, which may be due to hormonal imbalances such as in polycystic ovarian syndrome where androgens (male hormones) are predominant, leading to excessive hair growth.
There are many hair removal techniques available on the market to remove excessive hair on the legs, bikini line, underarms and body. Waxing, shaving, and depilatories methods require multiple sessions and can be painful, time consuming and costly. They only work to remove the hair follicles temporarily and the hair grows back with a new hair cycle.
Ways to manage unwanted excessive hair
Hair Removal with IPL
IPL hair removal targets the unwanted hair follicles without damage to surrounding skin and blood vessels. Once treated, the hair follicles fall out painlessly. The surrounding skin is rejuvenated as well and can lighten discolouration in underarms or any other treated areas.
Several treatments spaced at 1 month intervals may be required with up to 80-90% reduction in hair density and clearance of excess hair growth. Sun avoidance after treatment and use of sunblock is strongly advised for optimal outcome.
Hair removal is a very comfortable procedure. It may feel like a spa treatment where you will be attended to by a dedicated therapist and have complete privacy.
