Many clients come on a daily basis with for the one of the most irritating and frankly embarrassing problem of excess facial hair. At Metro Laser Clinic in Glasgow's Westend we make sure that all clients are treated with respect and care.
We realise how much of an issue this condition is and make sure we chat through all your medical history and find out as much as we can about your condition. Often making the first appointment is the biggest hurdle but all our clients wish they'd started years ago! The condition at it's worst is known as hirsuitism but often clients have an intermediate amount of facial hair which is problematic.
Wikipedia "Hirsutism affects members of any gender, since rising androgen levels can cause excessive body hair, particularly in locations where women normally do not develop terminal hair during puberty (chest, abdomen, back, and face). The medical term for excessive hair growth that affects any gender is hypertrichosis.
Hirsutism can be caused by either an increased level of androgens, the male hormones, or an oversensitivity of hair follicles to androgens. Male hormones such as testosterone stimulate hair growth, increase size and intensify the growth and pigmentation of hair. Other symptoms associated with a high level of male hormones include acne, deepening of the voice, and increased muscle mass.
Growing evidence implicates high circulating levels of insulin in women for the development of hirsutism. This theory is speculated to be consistent with the observation that obese (and thus presumably insulin resistant hyperinsulinemic) women are at high risk of becoming hirsute. Further, treatments that lower insulin levels will lead to a reduction in hirsutism.
It is speculated that insulin, at high enough concentration, stimulates the ovarian theca cells to produce androgens. There may also be an effect of high levels of insulin to activate insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-1) receptor in those same cells. Again, the result is increased androgen production.
Signs that are suggestive of an androgen-secreting tumor in a patient with hirsutism is rapid onset, virilization and palpable abdominal mass."
I actually work at Clinica Medica and have been threading twice daily for years, constantly applying heavy make up. After I bought a six session package and was so happy with the results that I purchased another package for another skin area. Andrew is always kind and attentive and aware how embarrassed I was from day one.
He is SO quick while still being really attentive and thorough. He's also so relaxed and chatty- very helpful during the procedure about concealers and aftercare advice! He also pays a lot of attention to making sure your skin is reacting well, which concerned me greatly since I have very sensitive skin.
A few months later I've had four treatments and have seen a huge reduction in hair on my chin, and would definitely go back to Metro to treat other areas! My confidence has really come back and I've hidden my tweezers at last to avoid temptation. What was a heavily black patch has practically gone now! Sara
