Excess hair on the arms, legs, body & face impacts confidence in both men & women. The number of men seeking laser hair removal treatments has risen 85% in just one year. Unwanted body & face hair can be an indicator of changes in the hormonal profile in women & even be a possible indicator of diseases like the polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS). Conditions like the PCOS have an impact on female fertility & hence appropriate diagnosis of excess, unwanted body hair is more than merely a cosmetic issue. While traditional treatment like waxing, shaving and bleaching have been used for centuries, each one of them has issues, including potential for infections as well as need for repeated use. Laser hair removal has become very popular of late. Laser treatment with the long pulsed Nd YAG laser & the diode laser can rightly be considered the gold standard of hair removal treatment today.
