Excessive Hair Growth

Laser hair reduction is a medical procedure that uses a concentrated beam of light (laser) to remove unwanted hair. The light emitted by the laser is absorbed by the pigment (melanin) in the hair. The light energy is converted to heat, which damages the tube-shaped sacs within the skin (hair follicles) that produce hairs. This inhibits or delays future hair growth.

Over the years, the dermatologists at AAYNA have conducted more than 50,000 sessions with superlative results and a highly satisfied clientele.


Facial & Body Hair

Don’t we all hate making that painful trip to the salon to get unwanted hair removed by waxing or threading? AAYNA offers pain-free solutions with a few of the best lasers in the world. The procedure is comfortable, effective, and virtually painless. The hair follicles are targeted in the growth phase of the cycle, which means an effective time gap between sessions is essential. 8 sessions with a 4-8 weekly gap ensures satisfactory results in hair reduction.

The doctors at AAYNA have treated over 15,000 patients for laser hair reduction in the last 8 years. The doctors evaluate you before the treatment and personally monitor each session to decide which parts need to be treated. In case of a hormonal imbalance, medical therapy is started alongside. Each of the laser therapists at AAYNA has over 10 years of experience.


Hormonal Imbalance

Hair is usually unwanted on most of the body parts. An increase in the amount of hair is known as Hypertrichosis.

Hirsutism is a condition which manifests due to a hormonal imbalance which leads to an increase in the circulating androgens. This causes excessive hair growth in different parts of the body.

Virilization is a combination of signs and symptoms which include hirsutism (excessive hair growth), acne, androgenetic alopecia (hair loss), menstrual irregularities and other symptoms. An excess of androgens plays an important role in all the manifestations.

The different causes of hormonal imbalance can be due to polycystic ovary syndrome, idiopathic or due to racial or hereditary variations. Excessive hair growth or hirsutism is usually seen in 9 different body areas:

Upper and Lower Back
Upper and Lower Abdomen
Upper Arm

The grading is usually done by the modified Ferriman-Gallwey Scoring system. Each part is assigned from 0 (no hair) to 4 (frank growth). A score of 8-15 is usually mild. A score greater than 15 requires medical intervention.
