PERMANENT HAIR REMOVAL LASER

Hair removal

      The human body skin has hair as a one component, and there are many appearances of hair, for example, black, brown or other colors depending on genetics. The hair covers the skin all around your body such as the skin, eyebrows, eyelashes, arms, legs, armpits and intimate area. Each location’s hair has different thickness and length.

 

   FACTORS IN HAIR GROWTH

       Normally hair will grow at different areas of the body in a normal rate, each area has different rates, for example, hair on the face grows 0.06 mm daily while body hair grows 0.12 mm daily. Other stimulants of the hair growth are:

• Adolescent age, around the age of 15 for females and the age of 13 for males, this is when the body will start to produce the hormone Androgen which causes a growth in hair around the upper rim of your lip and intimate area such as the armpits will start to grow 2 years after that. These hairs will remain even if these hormones have decreased.

• Pregnancy period, the number of hormones in the body will change resulting in sometimes increased hair on the upper rim of the lip, the chin or cheeks; however, these effects will decrease after child delivery.

• Elderly stage or menopause period in which the ovary system of the females stop working, causing the body to produce Androgen hormone instead can cause hair growth. But, in some cases that are sensitive to hormone Androgen without reason, the hair will grow more than usual.

• Race, Europeans and westerner tend to have more hair than Asians.

• The use of medications that includes steroid, anticonvulsive drug, Immunosuppressive drugs , or others can cause excessive or unwanted hair growth.

 • Shaving is a fast and convenient way to remove hair however, the hair will regrown quicker and grow thicker in diameter, darker color, and harder than before and can cause ingrown hair.

 • Tweezing or plucking the unwanted hair is a well-received method, but it is a method that is painful and is at high risk for causing ingrown hair, the newly ingrown hair could turn into a black spot if cannot come out of the skin leading to ingrown hair and folliculitis(inflammation of hair follicle). Also, if the equipment used is not sterile can cause skin infection.

 • Hair removal cream, we apply topical depilatory products that are cream, gel, and spray foam to the area that needed for hair removal, then let the product seeping into the pores and the hair will slowly release from the pores. Downsides of this method are that there could be an allergic reaction and rash, itchiness to the product, also the new hair will also have a harder and sharper characteristic.

 • Waxing, both liquid and adhesive can be used. This is another easy and convenient way for hair removal, simply apply the wax on the area you want to remove hair, leave it to dry and then pull out. Disadvantages are that it is extremely painful, cause ingrown hair and allergic rash afterward, and importantly, not a long-term solution to get permanent result.

• By using hormones, some type of hormones can be used to stop the growth of hair, but there might be dangerous side effects such as stimulating tumor growth.  

• Method of using electric currents, is by removing hair by having the electric currents run through the hair follicle causing the follicle to weaken and eventually die. After, we use an electric tweezer to remove the hair, this method is extremely painful and can leave bumped marks, scars, black marks around the area while also taking a long time to remove hair.
