Excessive hair growth

Hair growth cycle:

The hair growth phase plays an important role in the permanent hair removal treatment. These phases are subject to all final hair types. Because hair is in different phases in a particular area of the body, they can not be removed just once. It is important that each hair is removed during the growth phase, because you must be sure that all germ cells and warts have been destroyed - this ensures that the hair will not grow back.

Growth phase (anagen) - the phase in which the hair reaches its full length, the root is open, and nutrition takes place through the wart (connected to the bloodstream). This phase is ideal for the procedure.

Transient phase (catagen) - the hair is released from the nipple and shifted up. The reproductive processes occurring in the bristles are stopped.

Resting phase the fact that the hair is first fed from the follicle, and then slowly necroses and falls out. The treatment carried out in this phase is not very effective.

Excessive hair growth

The cause of excessive hair growth may be:

  • congenital factors
  • endocrine diseases
  • Side effects of some medicines

Due to the extent, we distinguish excessive hair:

  • limited
  • generalized

>Limited excessive hair

It is quite often found. Depending on the reason, we can distinguish the following characters:
congenital - usually in the lumbar and intercapital region (usually accompanied by various congenital malformations, e.g. spina bifida),
acquired - usually arising as a result of disorders of hormone secretion, excessive sensitivity of hair follicles to androgens less frequently in connection with the intake of certain drugs (here: hypertrichosis - excessive hair growth, and hirsutism - excessive hair on the face, torso and limbs of women and children of hair type) male, always associated with hormonal disorders).

Generalized excessive hair

It is a rare disease. Depending on the reason, we can distinguish the form:
congenital - follicular hair is overgrown, so that they become long and dense,
acquired - excessive hairiness usually occurs as a result of disorders of hormone secretion and disorders in the nervous system

Limited Hypertrichosis - in women it usually affects the skin of the face, nipples, pubic area, and shins. It usually appears around 25 - 30 years of age. In many cases, hormonal disorders can not be detected. It is therefore assumed that the cause of excessive hair growth is increased 5-alpha-reductase enzyme activity or hypersensitivity of the hair follicles to adrenal androgens. In some cases only limited hypertrychosis occurs due to the action of irritants (mechanical, chemical, physical or various inflammatory conditions).

History of depilation


In the past, the traditional way to eradicate unwanted hair was to pull them with tweezers, shave, wax or apply chemical depilatories. Some of these ways are painful, some are very complicated. All of them - effective in the short run. Electrolysis is a popular method that offers greater durability of effects, but it can be painful and slow. Hair behind the hair is subjected to an electric current which reaches the hair root with the help of a needle and damages it, stops its growth. You need months or even years of regular visits - even in areas as small as the upper lip. The risk associated with this procedure is electric shock, infection, scarring or enlarged pores. However, there is a more effective solution - LightSheer Diode Laser, a modern system specially designed for quick hair removal and in a more effective and less painful way than electrolysis.
