Excessive hair growth is a frequent cosmetic concern for both men and women. At Advanced Dermatology, we offer multiple options for treating excessive hair growth depending upon the hair-type, the skin-type, and the location of the hair on the body. We frequently address excess hair growth on the face and neck, as well as excessive body hair. Sometimes excessive hair growth in women can be related to a medical condition often related to a woman’s hormones.For example, polycystic ovary syndrome can be related to excessive unwanted hair growth in both women and children. Of course, proper treatment of the underlying medical concern is paramount, but excess hair removal can generally be provided concurrently with medical treatments. In addition, excessive hair growth can be genetic in nature. Though excessive hair growth due to genetic conditions is not medically concerning, it may pose a major cosmetic concern.
Regardless of cause, excess hair growth in both men and women can be treated at Advanced Dermatology. Our providers will consult with you to determine the most effective treatment plan. We utilize lasers for all skin types to remove or reduce hair without damaging the skin in the treated areas.
