Unwanted hair growth is a common problem that can be caused by hormonal imbalances at different stages of life. Pregnancy, puberty, genetics, menopause, Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS), underlying medical conditions, and some medications are all possible triggers. If you suspect a hormone imbalance, it's important to seek advice from an endocrinologist in addition to receiving electrolysis treatment.
As electrologists, we are not able to diagnose hormonal imbalances, but we will ask you a series of questions on the health assessment form to help identify possible causes. It's not uncommon for clients to express concern about facial hair, only to have "normal" blood work levels returned by their medical professional. Our research indicates that normal levels may still be higher than average for you, meaning you may be more prone to hair growth than someone with the same hormone levels. Even with hormone sensitivities or imbalances, permanent hair removal results can still be achieved, and we can help you get the smoother skin you desire.
In addition to hormonal imbalances, certain medications can cause hair growth or loss. We often see increased hair growth when a client changes their birth control or other hormonal medications. We encourage you to speak with your pharmacist about the potential side effects of your medications and to keep us informed of any changes to your medication regimen.
At our practice, we prioritize your safety and satisfaction. Our goal is to provide you with the most effective and comfortable hair removal treatment possible. If you have any concerns or questions about electrolysis, please do not hesitate to reach out to us.
