Excess hair growth

Whilst you may want to remove unwanted hair for purely aesthetic reasons or because you would like to reduce the hassle associated with shaving, plucking, threading or waxing, there are also a number of medical conditions that can also require the removal of excessive hair. Whatever your reasons for seeking hair removal the laser clinic specialises in the permanent removal of unwanted hair growth using a range of machines that are quick, safe and comfortable.

Whilst both men and women suffer from unwanted hair, it is more common for women to address the problem.

Hirsutism is caused by the excessive production of male hormones called androgens. If you have a hormonal condition like polycystic ovary syndrome (PSO) this can increase the number of androgens present in your body and stimulate your body’s production of facial and body hair.

The good news is that there is a range of effective and simple treatments that can permanently remove this unwanted hair.

Hirsutism differs from hypertrichosis as it is a condition exclusive to women, whereas hypertrichosis can affect both men and women. Hypertrichosis results in excessive hair growth which is over and above the normal range for the age, sex and race and can develop all over the body or in isolated areas. Men are typically concerned with hair growth on their backs and arms, but can often struggle with shaving and rashes if their beards are particularly dense and thick.

Whilst some men only wish to reduce hair growth to help make shaving easier it is also common for some men to request the complete removal of hair to other areas like the chest, backs and arms. Whatever your requirements we have a hair removal solution that can treat any issues you may have with excessive hair.


At Brigstock Skin and Laser we can offer you a number of different types of treatments whatever your skin and hair type.
