Electrolysis can help you attain the self-image of the beautiful woman you are.
In today’s world, a female’s body image is important to her sense of well-being. A woman’s confidence and self-esteem can be affected by unwanted hair. Feeling beautiful and having smooth and hair-free skin, plays a large part in a woman’s confidence.
In a female’s lifetime, she will undergo changes that can bring about hair growth. Puberty, pregnancy and menopause create changes in our bodies that may cause unwanted hair to appear. Other hormonal changes, as well as heredity and side effects of medications, can also bring about hair growth.
Puberty can be tougher for some compared to others. For a teenage girl, appearance is everything. During puberty, a girl finds it very difficult to talk about her unwanted hair and really needs support and understanding in which St George Electrolysis are experts.
For teenage girls undergoing puberty, one of the numerous burdens they can confront is startling facial hair. Male hair growth patterns in females is called Hirsutism. The body delivering a large number of male hormones (androgens) or hair shafts being excessively sensitive to androgens is the main cause of pubescent hirsutism.
In its mildest form, pubescent hirsutism can present as dark hair on the upper lip, upper cheeks, on the forehead and between the eyebrows. In more aggressive cases, the hair might be thick and coarse, covering the chin, cheeks and neck. The hair may also present itself on the chest, breasts, arms, buttocks or upper back. With aggressive cases, it is always recommended to consult your doctor to ensure there are no other factors contributing to her hair growth e.g. PCOS.
Pregnancy is by far the most beautiful experience one could ever be part of. During pregnancy unusual hormonal activity occurs, leading to an excess of androgens being produced. Often hair growth will appear on the upper lip, chin and sides of the face of a pregnant woman.
What can I do to the new hairs during pregnancy?
Once a woman has given birth and the hormones rebalance, the hair usually disappears, provided the woman does not interfere with the hairs. If a woman is very uncomfortable with the hair, it is best to get the hair permanently removed with Electrolysis rather than a temporary method which can strengthen the hair, causing an ongoing problem.
Menopause marks the end of a woman’s reproductive life and is a gradual yet radical change which takes place over a few years. Menopause is a time of great stress for a woman and an emergent of hair in unwanted areas is hardly comforting in addition to the other problems menopause brings.
Why does this happen?
The cause of this is the decline in the secretion of a female hormone called oestrogen and levels of dihydrotestosterone (DHT) become gradually higher than the estrogen levels in our body.
How can electrolysis help me during menopause?
Electrolysis can permanently eliminate any unwanted hair the body produces during menopause. This means we can keep the hair problem under control instead of accumulating the unwanted hair until menopause is complete.
