A condition of excessive hair can be defined into 2 main categories, hirsutism and hypertrichosis.
To put in briefly, hirsutism is a condition that affects women whereby the person has excess hair in areas where it’s typically seen in men, such as the face and lower abdomen. Women with hirsutism can observe that they have coarse and dark hair texture on the face, back, arm and lower abdomen. Women with this condition have characteristics that are commonly associated with male hormones.
Hypertrichosis, on the other hand, has an increase hair anywhere on the body. Hypertrichosis can affect both women and men, though it is rare. The abnormal hair growth may be on the face and body or occur in small patches. Hypertrichosis can appear at birth or develop over time.
It is important to find out what are the causes of excessive hair growth in either of the cases. Your Doctors will more than likely do a series of test for other health reason.
Excessive hair in both cases can, however be treated with few methods; eg shaving, chemical epilation, waxing and plucking.
All of these methods are temporary solutions. They also run the risk of causing painful or uncomfortable skin irritation. And on some parts of your body, these treatments are not easily done.
Long-term solution is hair removal via laser.
Laser hair removal treatment involves the application of laser light over excessive hair parts. Hair loss is long term, though you may need a few sessions to complete the job.
There are 4 popular types of laser available for hair removal in Malaysia. Namely, IPL, Diode Laser, Long Pulse NdYAG and Alexandrite Laser.
Among these light and laser treatments, Alexandrite Laser is the most efficient in removing hair. Traditional Alexandrite Laser is not able to be used to treat darker skin tone. However, Deka Motus Moveo Alexandrite Laser is the revolutionary laser that can be used to treat laser hair removal for all skin tones. It is safe due to its gradual energy dispersion to target the hair follicles. On top of that, due to its propriety Moveo Technology, the treatment is almost painless, eliminating the "rubber band-snapping" sensation that is cause from the traditional Alexandrite Laser.
