Luckily, we can deliver the answer you want to the question: is laser hair removal permanent? is ;laser hair removal permanent, laser hair removal

If you have an excessive amount of hair you may suffer from Hirsutism, which is often a long-term condition that mainly affects women but can affect men too.

Typically manifesting itself as dark and thick hair, Hirsutism growth is often found in places where men grow hair including the:

  • face
  • neck
  • chest
  • tummy
  • lower back
  • buttocks
  • thighs

To boost your self-esteem, we’re proud to offer non-invasive Laser Hair Removal treatment that requires no downtime for recovery and can get rid of unwanted facial hair, undesirable hair on the limbs, back and other areas.

Our Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) laser approach can selectively damage targeted hair follicles, such as those in facial hair, with minimum damage to the surrounding tissue. The treatment employs a special computer-controlled Xenon Light tube to generate high-energy broad spectrum light. The light beam produced can then be filtered into a particular narrow range of wavelengths depending on your needs and is absorbed by the pigment in the hair shaft, where it heats and destroys the hair.

Many of our clients ask us is laser hair removal permanent and the answer is: yes! IPL offers permanent hair removal as actively growing hair follicles will be destroyed. However, as with all depilation (hair removal) methods, only actively growing follicles are affected, so dormant or ‘resting’ hair follicles may start to produce hair at a later time. This ‘new growth’ (not re-growth) would need to be treated in the same manner.

Causes

The most common reason for Hirsutism is the presence of excess male hormones called androgens in your body or bodies being more sensitive to these hormones. In most cases it’s hard to identify why this happens but sometimes women just develop surplus hair as they grow older, especially following the menopause.

Rarer triggers of Hirsutism that have been cited include (but aren’t limited to):

 

  • Cushing’s syndrome – which is a hormonal disorder who’s symptoms include rapid weight gain and bloating in the face and neck areas.
  • congenital adrenal hyperplasia – an condition that is inherited and impacts the glands above the kidneys that create hormones, known as the adernal glands.
  • obesity
  • acromegaly – a condition in which the body produces too much growth hormone.
  • medicines – such as anabolic steroids, taken by some individuals to develop muscle and enhance athletic performance.
  • a tumour (growth) – that causes the amount of ardorgens hormones produced to rise and typically affected the ovaries or adrenal glands.

Don’t worry, you’re not alone in experiencing these symptoms, causes and conditions that causes unwanted hair growth. Is laser hair removal permanent? Yes, and with our confidence-boosting treatment, we’d love to show you how…
