Excess Hair

With the exception of the palms of the hands, soles of the feet and lips, hair grows all over the body, typically varying in density depending on the area. You may feel that you have excess hair if its growth is particularly noticeable, or thicker in volume than you would prefer.


Hair growth on the face and body is a completely normal and natural bodily feature, with hair playing a number of important roles. It provides a protective layer over the skin, which is why you’ll find thicker hair growing on the head and other sensitive areas. Hair can also help to keep the body warm, and the follicles are essential in regulating the production of sweat and oil. Hair can also help to enhance our sense of touch.


Nowadays, your hair can be what identifies you, and can be used as a way to express your unique appearance. Head hair is easy to grow and style as preferred, and maintaining a full head of hair can be important. However, some body hair can be unwanted or even considered as unhygienic, depending on where it is. Women will typically want to remove hair on their legs, under arms and around the bikini line, as well as on the face if hair growth is particularly noticeable. This can commonly occur in women who have South Asian, Middle-Eastern or Mediterranean heritage.


Facial hair and dense body hair is often seen to be more socially acceptable for men, however, more and more men are also looking to enhance their grooming. This has led to a rise in male patients also looking to remove unwanted hair from their chest, back, buttocks and around the genitals. Those who are particularly interested in athletic sports will also consider hair removal on the body to help enhance their performance and maintain a more streamlined figure.


Many men and women look to remove hair from the body, whether they choose to shave, wax, or attend a clinic or salon for an in-office hair removal treatment. Whichever method is used, the aim is to achieve smooth, hair-free skin.
