Unwanted Hair Growth
Unwanted hair growth is an embarrassing subject. Yet most everyone has either errant hairs growing in places they don’t want or excessive hair growth in the normal spots for hair to grow.
At Montgomery Electrolysis & Body Sugaring, we provide free consultations so you can make informed decisions regarding your unwanted hair removal needs.
Causes of Unwanted Hair Growth
The causes of unwanted hair growth run from heredity and hormones to illness and aging. Chances are, if your family members are particularly hairy, you might be, as well.
If you have a high level of certain hormones, you might have more hair than others. Certain illnesses and medications also affect hair growth. It’s always a good idea to talk to your doctor if you experience an unexpected amount or sudden hair growth, as it may be caused by an underlying symptom to a more serious health issue. As well, aging is a well- known cause for sprouting hairs from areas previously hair free.
Personal preference and what society considers acceptable play a huge role in what is considered “unwanted” hair growth. Most people accept society’s version of beauty. If you’re a female with dark upper lip hair or other facial hair, chances are that you will be looking at ways to get rid of it. Most women also feel hair on the legs, underarms, arm, chest, back and abdomen is considered unsightly.
Unwanted Hair Removal is a Personal Choice
Most women already have a hair removal regime in place, whether it’s shaving, depilatories, waxing, body sugaring, or electrolysis. How much hair a woman chooses to keep (and in what areas she chooses to keep it) are very personal decisions. Some women even decided to let nature take its course and do nothing to remove unwanted hair. It can be very liberating to get to a point where you can accept excess hair.
Whether or not you do something about unwanted hair, you should know that you do have a choice. With all the options out there for removing unwanted hair, there is no reason not to feel beautiful — inside and out.
