When many women think about laser hair removal, thoughts of legs, bikini lines and armpits come to mind. Laser hair removal (done by health care professionals) has been found to be highly effective and safe in reducing and removing hair from these areas with efficacy rates in the 90% or higher range.
It is difficult to find any type of medical or cosmetic procedure with that type of high efficacy and safety record…so kudos to the laser companies that have built these laser devices and to the laser nurses and other professionals who deliver these types of treatments.
And then there are those women who are struggling with hirsutism (overgrowth of hair) for underlying medical reasons. They frequently end up with hair on their buttocks, abdomen, lower back, chest, upper thighs and face. Here’s a look at why that happens and how laser hair removal may help:
While underlying medical conditions causing hirsutism may be uncommon, some of them are curable and others are not. Some, but not all, of the more common causes are listed below:
Typically, those with these types of underlying medical conditions have more signs and symptoms other than unwanted hair growth so most will have undergone a work-up with their family physician and will know if they have one of the above underlying diagnoses.
Fortunately and despite having an underlying condition causing excess hair growth, laser hair removal can be a highly effective procedure just as it is for women who do not have underlying causes of excessive hair growth. Laser hair removal treatments, regardless of the body area, generally take place over a series of weeks, and no downtime is involved. The number of areas that need to be treated, and the amount of hair growth present will largely determine how many laser hair sessions are needed. The average retail price for each laser hair removal session tends to range from $90 to $600 or more but this depends upon the size of treatment area and the quality of the provider.
