Excess Hair

Every year in the UK we spend around £25 million on the removal of excess hair using products like razors & waxing which offer a short term solution to a long term problem.

Unwanted excess hair is a personal issue for men & women alike. Each year we treat thousands of clients of all skin types with excessive hair growth on all areas of their face and body.

What causes excess hair growth?

In women, excess hair growth is called Hirsutism and affects 1 in 10 in the UK. Causes include: An excess of male hormone androgens (such as testosterone), an imbalance of androgens caused by Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) which is responsible for up to 72% of hirsutism cases, or high levels of testosterone during the menopause.

In men, excess hair growth can be caused by a range of factors including anabolic steroids used to gain muscle. We also treat hundreds of male clients who are looking to maintain a groomed appearance without regular shaving or plucking.
