Excess hair (Hirsutism) is a frustrating problem, causing emotional stress, low self-image, and other forms of psychological distress.
Modern electrology began in 1875 through the efforts of opthalmologist, Dr. Charles E. Michel. He accidentally discovered Electrolysis while removing an ingrown eyelash from one of his patients. Through his initial efforts and continued research, permanent hair removal through electrolysis is a reliable and safe method for halting hirsutism.
Why do we have excessive hair?
According to current medical science, excessive hair growth is primarily caused by three factors: Normal Systemic Changes, heredity, and Glandular disturbances.
Normal Systemic Changes can be caused by puberty, menopause, and hysterectomy. Puberty stimulates change in both the body and the hair-growth patterns. Commom pattern changes include both an increase in hair follicle activity and an overall darkening/thickening of the hair shaft. The diminished hormonal levels in a woman’s body following menopause and/or a hysterectomy can promote new hair growth on the face and body.
Glandular Disturbances originate in the endocrine system which is responsible for physical development. Certain specific medications such as male hormones, birth control pills, and even pregnancy can disrupt the delicate endocrine system and produce unwanted hair.
Hereditary hirsutism is common in all nationalities, some more than others. Electrolysis can permanently solve this problem regardless of the nationality or amount of hair.
Normal Hair Growth Cycle
All hair, regardless of the area of the body, has a different growth cycle. Eyelashes and eyebrows, for instance, grow for about four months and then are shed.The life span of the human scalp hair is from two to four years. After the hair is sloughed, the follicle becomes dormant for a period varying from a few weeks to several months, and then begins once again to produce hair. Since only visible hair can be treated, the initial treatment period for any given area is four months. Much of the perceived “regrowth” that occurs during treatment is really hair emerging from dormancy. Once this hair becomes visible, it can be treated for the first time.
