What causes unwanted hair to grow on the face?

Women with excessive or unwanted facial hair have a condition called hirsutism. Women with hirsutism have higher than normal levels of male hormones, particularly testosterone. Sometimes a disorder causes hirsutism such as:

  • Polycystic ovary syndrome: benign cysts on the ovaries disrupt normal hormone levels
  • Cushing’s disease: causes your adrenal gland to produce too much cortisol
  • Other adrenal disorders: any condition that disrupts the adrenals could disrupt hormones

How can I get rid of unwanted hair?

Many over-the-counter methods, including waxing, shaving, and depilatories, are available to remove hair temporarily. However, laser hair removal treatments provide a permanent solution.

Altman Aesthetic Center uses the CUTERA®, xeo®, TruPulse®, and ProWave™ systems to destroy hair follicles. They target each hair in its growth stage. Because only about 30% of your hair is in the growth stage at any given time, you need multiple treatments to target the majority of them.

Can you remove hair on any part of the body for good?

Lasers send highly concentrated wavelengths of light into hair follicles to destroy hair from the root. With laser hair removal, you can remove hair from your:

  • Face
  • Arms
  • Back
  • Chest
  • Nipples
  • Legs
  • Underarms
  • Bikini line

The effectiveness of the treatment depends on the expertise of the provider, and the doctors at Altman Aesthetic Center bring decades of experience with hair removal for the best results.

What are the benefits of laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal is relatively easy to tolerate without anesthetic. There may be some slight discomfort and minimal side effects, such as feeling like you have a sunburn on the treated area.

Lasers are also very precise. They remove individual hairs at the source rather than treating a wide general area.

Lastly, laser hair removal is a quick process. The lasers can treat an area the size of a quarter every second, so even large areas like the back and legs take only up to an hour. Three to six sessions are all it takes to get lifelong results.
