FACTS ABOUT UNWANTED HAIR

There are several different kinds of excessive hair growth, including hirsutism, hypertrichosis and superfluous hair. Excessive hair on the face, chin, upper lip or breasts that appear on a woman’s body is called hirsutism. Men can experience hirsutism when their hair is excessive in areas, caused by hormonal changes. Hypertrichosis is basically excessive hair on men and women that appear in areas outside the traditional pattern areas. Superfluous hair or “Unwanted Hair” is hair that appears on the areas of the body that are considered to be culturally unacceptable or unsightly.

REMOVE UNWANTED HAIR

There are several ways to remove excessive hair, including home remedies. One homeopathic method suggests applying turmeric paste to the affected areas to thin and diminish hair. Tweezing is fantastic for areas where only a few unwanted hairs appear, and waxing has the same result on a larger scale. The most effective treatment for permanent hair removal utilizes laser technology. Laser hair removal should only be done by a qualified professional, guided by a dermatologist to determine if your skin and hair pigment are a fit for laser hair removal. For instance, the pigment in darker skin can interfere with the ability for the laser’s beam to reach as far as it needs to in order to destroy the hair follicle fully. If you are extremely fair-haired, the lasers might be unable to grasp the pigment in your hair. If your pigment works well for laser hair removal, the results are significant and can remove unwanted hair permanently.

HAIR REMOVAL TECHNOLOGY

Smoothing and ridding the skin of unwanted hair is possible with creams,
topical home remedies, or the highly effective method of laser technology.
This is the process of removing unwanted hair by exposing it to pulses of laser
light that destroy the hair follicle. There are also home devices designed for
self-treatment, but they are not as effective as the laser machines used by
professional dermatologists. Laser hair removal can damage your skin and be
extremely painful if not done by a professional. If you would like to be free of
excess hair, please contact Kwan Dermatology to schedule a consultation.
