The Hair-raising Effect Of Ageing

You may notice a hair-raising effect of ageing. Look closely in the mirror and you might find unwanted facial hair…

Wrinkles and sagging skin are not the only consequence of ageing. Women can develop varying amounts of unwanted facial hair as they get older, and this is quite common among menopausal women. Aside from genetics, another reason for this hair growth is due to hormonal changes. Women produce both estrogen and testosterone, but with age production estrogen levels start to decrease. This imbalance results in a higher level of testosterone—an androgen—in your body, resulting in conditions more commonly found in men such as extensive facial hair.

For a woman, this is not only a hair-raising physical dilemma but it also poses a huge emotional and psychological trauma.

For most women, shaving is a common temporary solution when it comes to removing unwanted hair on their body parts and yes, including the face. Apparently, there has been a significant rise in the number of women who opt for this quick fix as it’s cheap and does the job. Apart from shaving, threading, and waxing, hair removal with laser and intense pulsed light (IPL) are also fuss-free options to consider.

A Hair-raising Issue: Laser or IPL Hair Removal?

Many people often ask which is better but the truth is that both are just as effective. The option you pick boils down to your budget and the frequency that you are most comfortable with. That is why Halley Medical Aesthetics has two hair removal options to cater to your needs. Our DPL Smooth Hair Removal uses dynamic pulsed light (DPL) technology to remove and minimise unwanted hair growth. For a more precise method of removing individual hair, the Laser Clear Hair Removal would be the way to go. This doctor-only treatment uses the Long Pulsed Nd:Yag Laser to remove unwanted hair and destroy its follicle. The recommended maintenance visit for DPL Smooth Hair Removal is once every one to two months and once every two months for Laser Clear Hair Removal.

Having long and lustrous hair is fine as long as it’s on your head. But should you be troubled by this hair-raising issue, at least there are effective solutions to take that weight off your shoulders and hair off your face?
