Excess Hair

Age, ethnicity, genetics, hormones, diet, medications and weight are all factors that affect the amount and type of hair that we develop. There are many ways to manage excess hair including depilatory creams, prescription creams, threading, waxing, plucking, and electrolysis. These methods are time consuming and other than electrolysis, do not have effective, lasting results for excess hair.

Many women and men struggle with excess body hair on the face or other areas of the body. But beyond being sometimes just unsightly, it can also sometimes be unhealthy.

If you notice a dramatic change in body hair growth or hair growth in an unusual pattern, you should not ignore it. Excess hair could signal an underlying medical condition. Book a consultation with our clinic and our Medical Director will give you a diagnosis.

Laser hair removal at our practice in St. Catharines, Ontario treats actively growing hairs. Since hair grows in cycles, several treatments are typically required for optimal results.  While both of our lasers are Health Canada cleared for permanent hair reduction, maintenance treatments are recommended.

At Affordable Laser and Cosmetic Clinic, we offer laser hair removal that is suitable for various hair and skin types. A big advantage of laser hair removal is its ability to treat small or large areas efficiently. Patients experience no downtime and can resume normal activities immediately following treatment. Get rid of that excess hair!
