A common problem for men and women alike is unwanted facial and body hair. There are many treatments available for the removal of facial and body hair. Excessive hair growth can be caused by medications, hormones, malnutrition, tumors, metabolic issues or simple genetics.
Excessive growth of hair in women is called 'Hirsutism'. It usually grows in a male pattern.
Laser hair removal and hair removal by other light sources is safe and effective for larger areas of hair and generally produces minimum discomfort and few if any complications.
Laser devices produce concentrated light beams through the skin and are absorbed by the pigment within the skin within the shafts of the
hair follicle. The top layer of skin is protected during the process from heating and color changes. A repeat of treatment may
be necessary in order to alleviate hair follicles.
Laser and light source treatments for hair removal generally are most effective on dark-haired, light-skinned people. Skin with a darker pigment will absorb less of the laser light. A laser with longer wavelengths is needed to treat people with darker skin tones.
