Body hair removal

Épilation

With time, hair may change, and this for many different reasons, becoming a problem. In women with hirsutism, hyperpilosity can reach the thorax, abdomen, buttocks and the area between the navel and the genitals, caused by an abnormally high level of male hormone, called androgens. Although hirsutism is often caused by genetics and ethnicity, it can also be caused by an ovarian dysfunction, being overweight, irregular menstrual cycles, oily skin, acne, and more developed muscles.

Getting rid of unsightly hairs that are more or less visible on certain areas of the body, for aesthetic or medical reasons, is now possible. Whether scattered or on a particular part of the body, the hair is gently and painlessly epilated. Laser hair removal is the preferred technology; it is effective, faster and less painful than hair removal techniques by electrolysis or electrocoagulation. All types of skin—from pale to dark—can be treated, both in the winter and summer onths with no restrictions on the season. For example, in
California, people receive laser care 12 months a year. However, make sure to apply adequate sun protection throughout the year. In addition to offering you the right treatment during the consultation, your doctor can then prescribe the appropriate medication(s) for any medical or hormonal condition, need be.
