Many people experience excessive hair growth in all the wrong places. There are a few reasons for this. One is an overproduction of certain hormones.
At Lasting Looks Clinic in Etobicoke we see many patients with this concern.
When boys hit puberty they usually develop facial and chest hair, and of course girls generally don’t.
With boys, it is due to a sudden surge in testosterone. Girls will produce more estrogen at this time and although body hair is developing, it’s usually manageable.
Some adolescent and young women unfortunately have an overabundance of facial and body hair due in part to their unbalanced and surging hormones. This can often be distressing and embarrassing as well.
When a woman’s’ hormones are not in the correct balance, for example when they are menopausal, or are producing less estrogen , can develop excess facial and body hair.
Laser Hair removal is the best method to reduce the hair growth.
We effectively treat many women with this issue using Laser Hair Removal to remove the unwanted hair.
Approximately 6-8 treatments of hair removal spaced 4-6 weeks apart are sufficient to reduce or eliminate the unwanted hair.
