Laser hair removal became commercially available in 1990, and has grown exponentially over the past 22 years. Hair removal lasers are approved by the FDA for ‘permanent’ hair removal. “Laser hair removal is a technique that uses beams of highly concentrated light to penetrate the hair follicles. The light is absorbed by pigment in the follicles and destroys the hair within them. Laser hair removal is among the most commonly performed cosmetic procedures in the U.S,” via WebMD. The process will permanently reduce the amount of hairs grown, but not permanently prevent all hair growth.
Laser hair removal in the Charleston, South Carolina area is performed with GentleYAG® and GentleLASE® lasers, and is appropriate for both light-skinned and dark-skinned individuals. The procedure causes only slight discomfort. As the laser is passed over the targeted area, patients will feel a brief, slight “snap,” like a rubber band against the skin.
Many women suffer from unwanted hairiness however the condition can be more than just an issue of appearance. Hirsutism is a condition of ‘male pattern’ hair growth in women, i.e.: face, back or chest. This condition can be a sign of more severe medical concerns. The cause of this hair growth could be because of a high amount of male hormone- androgens- primarily testosterone, or due to a body’s over sensitivity to hair follicles. New studies are also showing higher levels of insulin in women with this condition. If you have an excessive amount of body hair in targeted areas that are not common for woman pattern growth, not common for your family/ethnic traits, and developed after the pubescent period you may want to discuss your concerns with your dermatologist and/or physician. There may be a solution to your cosmetic concerns and for your health!
