Hormones are the chemical messengers in the body that travel the bloodstream to the organs and tissues. They slowly work on and affect many of the body's processes over time. Endocrine glands, which are special groups of cells, make hormones. [1]

There are many endocrine glands in the body with the main ones being the pituitary gland, thyroid, thymus, adrenal glands, and the pancreas. Hormones are dominant and it only requires a small amount of them to cause significant changes throughout the body.

Both men and women produce hormones in the same area with one exception, the sexual organs. Additional male hormones are produced in the testes while women's are produced in the ovaries. [2]

A Lifetime Of Changes

As the body changes from childhood to adulthood, hormonal imbalance is experienced by both males and females. [3]

Excessive hair growth caused by hormonal change is not only brought on by age and pregnancy but can also be attributed to heredity, reactions to medications, natural supplements and topical such as biotin, hair and nail supplements, Rogaine and minoxidil. Additionally, hormone imbalances due to weight gain and stress are causes for increased hair growth. Excessive hair growth, known as hirsutism, can range from fine to coarse hair on the face and body.

Proven Treatment

Unlike all other hair removal methods, professionally performed Electrolysis eliminates all unwanted hair - permanently - with unsurpassed results. Moreover, it does so for all skin and hair types and colors. No other hair removal method can claim such universal acceptability and success.

Electrolysis can treat facial areas and body parts including: hairline, eyebrows, ears, nose, chin, upper and lower jaw line, cheeks and sideburns, neck, sternum, breasts, abdomen and back, underarms, forearms and hands, bikini line, legs and feet. However, if there is an underlying hormonal imbalance causing an excessive amount of hair growth, it is imperative to discuss with your physician, treatment to correct the imbalance.

What To Expect

Electrolysis involves labor intensive, intricate procedures, which require professional judgement, and which must be performed in a sanitary environment by a skilled, licensed professional.

Your initial consultation will consist of a discussion of the three different modalities: Galvanic, Thermolysis and the Blend and which is best suited to your needs. A session can range from 15 minutes to more than an hour, depending on the amount of hair to be removed, your tolerance, your work schedule and your finances. Barring a medical condition, clearance of all hair in any area can be achieved within a year's time frame providing that you donate enough time to the process, discontinue any method of temporary hair removal with the exception of cutting and shaving, and it becomes your priority.

However, if a medical imbalance exists and is left untreated, the body will continually produce new, unwanted hair.
