Permanent Hair Reduction
Hair removal is a popular medical aesthetic procedure among men and women alike in Asia. Men tend to want to remove hair on their backs or chests for hygiene purposes or, as in the case of athletes of swimmers, if they are required to. Women, meanwhile, seek hair removal procedures to free themselves from the slavery of constant waxing and shaving. Some women may also suffer from excess hair growth on their faces or bodies, called hirsutism, which may be triggered by hormonal imbalances due to genetics, pregnancy, thyroid problems or certain medications.
