If body hair is something you feel is out of your control and hair removal often becomes a daily chore; we have a range of treatments to help you regain the confidence to bare your skin again! Common hair concerns include:
Hirsutism involves excessive or unusual hair growth around the face, neck and jawline. The most common causes include pregnancy, medications, and medical conditions such as PCOS. This can cause excess production of androgens (male hormone) in women, resulting in hirsutism. This causes an influx of male hair pattern growth and distribution. Hirsutism treatments can include face laser hair removal which may reduce excessive hair growth in affected areas.
Ingrown hairs are a common concern, occurring when a hair grows back into the skin instead of growing outward. This can cause inflammation, redness and itchiness, and in some cases can lead to infection of the hair follicle. Ingrown hair can occur after a hair is cut or when hair follicles become clogged by dead skin cells. If you’re looking for a treatment for ingrown hairs, laser hair removal is a recommended option that can prevent its occurrence.
Hair growth is largely determined by genetics and ethnicity. Today, many individuals have a preference for minimal hair on their face and bodies. Unfortunately, shaving can cause the hair to grow back thicker, coarser and faster. Unwanted hair removal treatment with laser is the most effective treatment to achieve long-term reduction of unwanted hair. This treatment is safe and suitable for excessive facial and body hair.
Keratosis pilaris is a common condition that affects people of all ages, but is most common amongst teens, twenties and thirties. It is characterised by rough, dry skin patches surrounding hair follicles, and can lead to acne-type lesions and ingrown hairs. This is commonly known as ‘chicken skin’ or ‘strawberry skin’ due to the small red dots or bumps present on the skin. Keratosis pilaris often occurs on the upper arms, abdomen and legs.
