The amount and distribution of hair growth is largely determined by genetics and ethnicity. Today, both males and females alike have a preference towards minimal hair over their face and bodies. Shaving, waxing and epilation creams are non-sustainable, cumbersome and sometimes damaging to the skin. With the advent of lasers, hair removal has become a fast and dependable approach for permanent hair reduction and is widely available.
Hair has 3 stages – Anagen, Catagen and Telogen. Anagen is the active phase of hair growth during which time there will be abundant melanin. Laser hair removal provides long-term reduction of unwanted hair by precisely targeting the hair follicle without damaging the surrounding epidermis.
Certain medical conditions like PCOS may cause excess circulating androgens in women that result in a condition called hirsutism. This is a type of male hair pattern and distribution that typically appears over the face, jawline and neck.
Keratosis Pilaris is a common, frustrating condition that affects people of all ages but is especially common in the teens, twenties and thirties. This is characterized by extensive rough dry skin patches atop hair follicles and can lead to acne-type lesions and ingrown hairs. It is a problem of the upper arms, abdomen and legs. The patches are often itchy which leads to scratching and in turn, scarring.
"Therapist was really skilled and gentle with waxing. Made me feel comfortable and communicated really well. Would definitely recommend this place to others"
Had a lovely Medik8 facial with microdermabrasion and eyebrow waxing by Lucy last Tuesday and the results were amazing. Super soft and glowing skin, and perfect eyebrows. Love the Medik8 products used!
"Excellent service and medical grade products and treatment range are very good".
Fabulous facial. So relaxing!
Friendly and great expertise and not pushy
Couldn't be more happier with them. I highly recommend!
"Hi Dr Aarthi, great results with the age spots on my hands. I'm thrilled! Thank you!"
For professional permanent hair removal and laser rejuvenation, I recommend Bay Medical Aesthetics! Where you will be provided with specific & professional service for your needs. Great friendly therapists.
"All good and glowing. Very happy. Cheers!"
"I feel very confident having laser by a medical practitioner compared to a therapist with laser training. I was contacted via text post laser for a follow up and check however experienced no negative side effects."
"Was very professional and advanced - and so well priced. I feel confident that it’s coming from Dr Aarthi- she explains everything and the other facialists are really good as well. Finally someone who knows what she is talking about and accessible! I’ve been trying to clear my skin for so long - I can’t tell you how many other laser clinic I have been too selling me products and nothing made an impact. But ive had carbon and peels just after a few treatments it’s looking clear and radiant. Will be coming here from now on and highly recommend it."
