An effective solution for excess body hair

Posted on 14 May, 2012

Excessive growth of hair on the body can be a real handicap for those who suffer from it, particularly if the hairs are terminal i.e. dark, coarse and thick. It can be a source of great embarrassment and distress and dissuade those affected from seeking professional advice or help.

Abnormal hair growth can have various causes: it can be an inherited feature or can be caused by hormonal changes or imbalances. It is a common symptom of Polycystic Ovary Syndrome and can worsen with increases in body weight.

So, what can you do about it? Shaving can cause rashes and ingrowing hairs, as can waxing; creams are messy and time-consuming; electrolysis offers great results but can only treat one hair at a time, making treatment lengthy and expensive.

Often, the best option for dealing with excessive hair growth is removal using Intense Pulsed Light Treatment. This approach uses light energy to destroy the hairs at their roots as well as the follicle itself, allowing fast and permanent hair reduction.
