Laser Hair removal
Laser hair removal is fast becoming one of the most preferred ways to slow down unwanted hair growth for residents of Charlotte. Excessive hair growth, or hirsutism, can occur in both men and women. Women who experience hirsutism live with excessive growth of dark, coarse hair that may appear on the face, chest, abdomen, and back. The cause of this excessive hair growth can vary from one person to the next. The most common causes include:
- Endocrine disorders
- Polycystic ovary syndrome
- Medical steroids
- Use of birth control pills
Some rare causes can include menopause, puberty, pregnancy, ovarian tumor, and drugs. Usually, the excessive hair growth has no clear explanation. Charlotte dermatologists will plan treatment of excessive hair growth based upon their diagnosis for the problem.
Charlotte hair removal
For people interested in laser hair removal, finding a specialized laser hair removal clinic is the best way to guarantee successful results. Many laser hair removal clinics offer tempting low prices with poor results, which often results in patients having to get laser hair removal done all over again at a better clinic for the desired hair elimination. The Dermatology Specialists of Charlotte offers treatments such as BBL™, Dermaplaning, ClearScan by SCITON™, and VANIQA®, an FDA-approved prescription cream that is clinically proven to reduce the growth of unwanted facial hair in women. Many people seek clinical hair removal for both personal and medical reasons. It is reasonable to say that laser hair removal is very effective for long term or permanent reduction of unwanted hair. SCITON™ BBL is effective at removing dark hairs on lighter skin with minimal side effects. Maintenance treatments are needed to maintain results.
Laser hair removal can take anywhere from fifteen minutes to over an hour, depending on the size of the area being treated. Most of the time, patients can expect at least 6 treatments of laser hair removal are needed for long-term hair reduction. This is because the laser will only work against hair follicles in the actively growing phase, and not all follicles are actively growing at the same time. Of course, the total number of treatments required for maximum results will depend upon the individual’s needs.
