Excess Hair

View treatments

Hair grows all over the body (with the exception of the palms of the hands, soles of the feet and lips), 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.

As mentioned, hair grows all over the face and body which is normal as hair has a number of jobs. It provides a protective layer over the skin, which is why you’ll find thicker hair growing on the head and other more 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 more acceptable for a man, however, more and more men also look 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 make their body more streamlined.

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

At Ambra Clinic we use Candela Gentlemax Pro Plus laser as a safe and effective treatment for reducing unwanted / excess hair, with long-term results.

I went to see Dr McMillan for the first time about a year ago so she could revise some badly done under eye filler NOT DONE BY DR MCMILLAN, and she’s done the most fantastic job i had terrible anxiety from the previous injector and was very nervous, I did so much research but decided to go ahead with Dr McMillan as she was so reassuring and honest with it all

I would highly recommend Maryam and her team at Ambra Aesthetic clinic, my husband had dental treatment with straightening and whitening of his teeth and the results are amazing. I have also had various treatments and we are both very pleased with the service, kindness shown and professionalism. Thank you Ambra. See you soon.

Ambra Aesthetics are the place to go to for professional, friendly service. You don’t need to go to Harley Street. Dr M and her team are all experts and really take care of you giving the best treatments and advice. Sam on the front desk is a dream. In lots of places the staff can look scary from doing too much but Ambra you can tell it’s all about discrete subtle tweakments. . Don’t hesitate to go!
