Causes of Excessive Hair Growth
Excessive hair growth is classified as either hypertrichosis or hirsutism. Hypertrichosis is excessive hair growth over and above the normal for the age, sex, and race of the idividual. This may be inherited (genetic), or due to medications, hormones, malnutrition, tumors, or metabolic problems. Hirsutism is the presence of excess hair in women in a male pattern such as the beard, mustache, or lower abdomen, and may be due to hormonal problems, medications, tumors, or heredity. In these cases, your provider at Gaughf Dermatology will determine if blood work is needed.
Hair Removal Methods
There are many ways of hair removal including shaving, plucking, electronic tweezers, radiofrequency tweezers, waxing, threading, depilatories (creams), and electrolysis (inserting a needle into each hair follicle one at a time followed by an electric spark to burn out the follicle). These methods of hair removal are temporary. Lasers offer the only method for permanent hair reduction; our laser hair removal offers quick results with optimal safety.
How Hair Removal Laser Works
Lasers send an energy beam through the skin that is absorbed by dark pigment (melanin) present in the shaft of the hair follicles. Since hair cycles as it grows, repeated treatments are necessary to destroy about 80 percent of the hairs. Our LightSheer Duet laser hair removal also treats dark skin types safely and effectively.
