Hormones VS Laser Hair Removal..

Laser hair removal is a popular cosmetic procedure that uses a laser to destroy hair follicles. It is effective for removing unwanted hair on the face, legs, arms, and other areas of the body. However, laser hair removal may not be as effective for people with hormonal imbalances.

Hormones play a role in hair growth. For example, the male hormone testosterone can stimulate hair growth in women. If you have a hormonal imbalance that causes excess testosterone, you may be more likely to experience unwanted hair growth.

If you have a hormonal imbalance, you may still be a candidate for laser hair removal. However, you may need to have more treatments than someone without a hormonal imbalance. You may also need to take medication to treat your hormonal imbalance.

It is important to talk to your Laser Therapist before having laser hair removal if you have a hormonal imbalance to ensure they manage your expectations and set out a personalised treatment plan so you get the most from every treatment.

You maybe advised to see your GP if you haven't been diagnosed with an imbalance but it is suspected as this can help you manage excessive hair growth and help determine if laser hair removal is right for you.

Here are some additional things to keep in mind if you are considering laser hair removal and have a hormonal imbalance:

  • Talk to your Laser Therapist about your hormone levels and any medications you are taking.

  • Make sure you are using a reputable laser hair removal clinic.

  • Follow the instructions of your Laser Therapist


  • Be patient. It may take several treatments to see results.
