Have you ever been told that plucking makes your hair grow in darker and thicker? First, this is a myth, plucking does not chemically change the structure of the hair follicle. These hairs are coarser and thicker because of hormonal changes.

All women produce small amounts of the male hormone called Androgen. When a woman has an overabundance of it, these hairs commonly develop on the jawline, upper lip and chin. Even though this is not a medical concern and quite common, it is still embarrassing and annoying.
These hairs can appear at any age, and more prominent after menopause. Sometimes the hormonal changes due to birth control pills, pregnancy, to irregular periods, and hormonal imbalances can be the culprit.

What can you do to get rid of them? For blonde/white hairs, try electrolysis and for dark pigmented hair, laser hair removal is your best permanent option.
Laser hair removal is the most effective way to destroy hair follicles leaving smooth lasting results. This treatment is progressive and requires six treatments per area. The laser destroys the hair follicle resulting in the inability to produce hair. Set up a consult today to end the battle of the pesky chin hairs for good!
