Hormonal Changes During Life and Permanent Hair Remova

Increased hair growth is one of the most common side effects of the hormonal fluctuations that occur naturally at various stages of development. Regardless of the reason for these hormonal fluctuations, electrolysis is a universally successful way to permanently remove the resultant hair growth. This is because, unlike laser hair removal which only reduces hair growth, #electrolysis damages hair follicles to the point that they are unable to produce hair, no matter what is causing the growth in the first place. Keep reading to learn more about typical hair growth patterns at these stages, and find out why electrolysis is such a popular hair removal method for people of all ages.


The first major hormonal shift that most of us experience occurs during puberty, at which time
the pituitary gland releases a luteinizing hormone that in turn signals the release of testosterone in boys and estrogen in girls. These, along with other adrenal hormones, stimulate hair growth throughout the body, with the biggest changes taking place on the face and in the underarm and pubic regions. While this growth is perfectly normal, post-pubescent men and women often seek permanent hair removal for cosmetic reasons, or to avoid a lifetime of shaving, waxing, tweezing, and so on. Once facial hair patterns are established during puberty, many men use electrolysis to permanently “shape” their beards. For women, facial hair, however fine, often darkens during puberty, so many women at this stage of life seek electrolysis to permanently remove this hair, most often on their upper lips and “sideburns.”


Another major hormonal shift contributing to increased hair growth happens during pregnancy, when increased androgens stimulate production of hair both in places where it already exists and, for some, in places where they did not previously experience significant hair growth. While most women find that this growth subsides within about six months after giving birth, electrolysis is still a popular way to keep increased hair growth at bay during pregnancy – when regular shaving and waxing is especially inconvenient – as well as speed up its disappearance postpartum.


Women have facial hair too, though it is often very fine. As they grow older, however, estrogen levels decrease, leading to thinning hair on the scalp but increased facial hair production, making their previously fine hairs more noticeable. Many women begin by simply plucking the offending hairs, but, particularly as the eyes age, these hairs may become difficult to see, often leading to concern and self consciousness. Electrolysis permanently removes even the lightest hairs and ensures that they won’t grow back even as estrogen levels continue to decrease with age.

No matter what is driving your hair growth, electrolysis can help you permanently remove your unwanted hair. Schedule a free consultation at our

You can TEXT me for appointments

The best way to get in contact with me is to text me for an appointment. Allow me to explain…….. Virtually all electrologist in Las Vegas are one person operations. When I am working on a client I do not stop to answer the phone because the client I am working on is paying good money to get my full attention and skill set. It's only fair that I provide the best service to everyone that enters my office. It's easier for me to text clients in between appointments because at the end of the day I am returning usually 6 or 7 calls starting around 8 pm when I finish. Honestly I am not able to return all calls before 9pm rolls around and I do not like calling potential clients back that late. So feel free to text me with questions about electrolysis and hair removal and I'll get back to you as soon as possible.

The Best time to treat Hair for Hair Removal

Electrolysis is most effective during the early Anagen phase. When a new hair begins to surface the skin, it is at its weakest point. This is because the dermal papilla is in the process of nourishing the hair to grow stronger. By treating the dermal papilla with electrolysis at its weakest point, the treatment is the most effective at achieving permanent hair removal. Because hair grows at different stages on different parts of the body it is important to commit to regular treatments in order to target hairs during the active stage (Anagen Stage).

Laser Hair Removal Closes it's doors

I've been waiting for this for many years…..American Laser Skincare filed for bankruptcy in December 2014. Over 135 Laser clinics across the United States closed it's doors. That's huge! That should send you a red flag about Laser Hair Removal as well. First and foremost I think it's unfortunate that all the employees lost their jobs working for these Laser Hair Removal centers. I even feel worse for the clients that lost all their money and will never get it back. The worst part is you have all these clients that still have the underlying problem of unwanted hair.

This is the second time in a 3 years span that American Laser has filed for bankruptcy. When they came out of bankruptcy in 2012 they assumed the name of American Laser Skincare. My suspicion is that if Laser Hair Removal worked or it "reduced" hair like it says it did…….Why aren't they still in business?

The Problem

At best, unwanted hair is an embarrassing situation; at worst, it's a problem that interferes dramatically with a normal lifestyle. Electrolysis is the most effective method for removing unwanted hair permanently and safely. As your electrologist I will be frank in explaining how electrolysis is accomplished and answering all your questions. Soon you will be on your way to new beauty and self-confidence.
