Excess hair refers to unwanted body and facial hair. We all have hair on almost every part of our bodies, but some people have more than others. This can be embarrassing, distressing and difficult to manage, for both men and women.
Many people do not have any underlying medical conditions but simply wish to remove excess hair on their body and face purely for cosmetic reasons. Excess hair (particularly in women) can be a symptom of a hormonal condition such as polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). Sometimes excess hair growth has no identifiable cause; this tends to be more common in skin types from a Mediterranean, Middle Eastern and South Asian background. It can also be hereditary. At MySkyn Clinic we can treat excessive hair with laser hair removal.
Excessive sweating is medically known as hyperhidrosis and is often an embarrassing condition, causing you to sweat much more than your body needs to in order to regulate its temperature.
The most common affected area is the underarms. However, excessive sweating may also be a problem in many other parts of the your body, including hands, feet, face and head. Sweating is generally harmless and happens to both men and women. At the clinic we are able to treat under-arm hyperhydrosis.
