Hirsutism is the appearance of dark coarse unwanted hair specially in females on the areas like face, chin, cheek, upper lips, forehead, neck or chest. Some of these hair is very light in colour and not noticeable. But the dark hard hair specially on face are embarrassing and need to be managed effectively.
All women have some soft hair on their forehead, face or upper lip. They are light in colour and not really visible but when facial hair becomes hard and excessive especially on chin, in front of neck and above the lips women seek effective and permanent treatment.
The tendency to get excessive facial hair or hirsutism is due to abnormal production of male hormones (androgens) in women. Excess amount of this hormone activates the hair follicle thereby increasing the hair growth. Due to the abnormal production of androgen the hair which grows are of male pattern (moustache, beard). This is more common in females with hormonal imbalance, pregnancy, taking birth control pills or any steroids, weight gain, menopause or poly cystic ovarian syndrome (a medical condition can cause unwanted facial hair especially if the woman is also obese).
Although Plucking, tweezing, threading, waxing or bleaching are commonly used to get rid of these unwanted hair but these ways are not very promising to remove them permanently. They have their own side effects and need to be repeated on a regular basis as hair grows back within 15-20 days. Furthermore, they may be effective for women with minor hair growth, the ones with severe form of this problem would need the treatment from expert for long term benefit.
At Skin n laser centre we have the most advanced Light Sheer Diode Laser from Lumenis U.S.A., a Gold standard laser for hair removal.
A laser produces a beam of highly concentrated light. The light emitted is well absorbed by the pigment located in hair follicles. The laser pulses for a fraction of a second, just long enough to vaporize the pigment, disabling numerous follicles at a time to eliminate or significantly impede the hair growth. Treatment from this laser gives very effective results from the first sitting itself. For more information from the experts, book an appointment at Skin N Laser centre East Delhi.
