Unwanted Excess Hair
Hair is a tricky issue for many people; sometimes cropping up in places where it’s just not welcome! The problem areas for many of us include the chin, upper lip, cheeks, legs, arms and also the fingers and toes. Some of this errant hair is natural and since some of us are hairier than others, it’s just one of those things which has to be dealt with. For a small proportion of people, excess hair growth can be a symptom of underlying health issues and this is particularly true for women. Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome is one of the more common reasons that some women suffer unwanted hair growth and without help to diminish the growth, this excess hair can be embarrassing and upsetting. Similarly, dark haired women can find that they have more than their fair share of hair in areas they’d prefer smooth…this is just down to the pot luck of genetics and there’s no real way to deal with the problem on a permanent basis other than laser hair removal.
Laser Hair Removal
Laser hair removal is certainly one of the most effective treatments for excess hair-growth and certainly beats shaving, waxing or plucking, not only as far as longevity is concerned but also in terms of comfort! Waxing and plucking are very painful for many people…especially those with sensitive skin and shaving is hardly kind on the delicate areas which most women are concerned with.
The decision to try laser hair removal often comes after the exhaustion of all other options…the endless round of depilatory creams and tweezers finally becomes so wearing that a more permanent and effective solution is the only way to go. Laser hair removal isn’t an instant fix…it usually takes two or three sessions to be completely effective and this is due to the fact that hairs grow at different rates and the period of time in which an individual follicle may be destroyed is limited to that when the hair is in it’s phase of active growth.
That said, it is certainty possible to see some results even after the first session and most people are so pleased to watch an improvement in their unwanted hair situation that they’re only happy to return for their subsequent sessions!
Is It Painful?
The process is a little painful for some people whilst others say that it only causes mild discomfort. Usually the sensation is likened to an elastic band being snapped against the skin…so it could hardly be called an agonizing process but rather mildly annoying. The discomfort however is more than worth it for many people when they contemplate the relief of finally being rid of their unwanted hair.
Speak To A Professional
The first thing to do when considering laser hair removal is to speak to the professionals; booking a consultation can help to give you time to settle any concerns and to have your questions answered by someone in the know…laser hair removal is a safe, effective and usually permanent way to reduce hair from the places it’s not welcome!
