Hair Related Concerns

It is extremely common for both men and women to have concerns about their head, facial, or body hair. Nonetheless, our bodies have hair for a reason. Hair is important to protect our skin from friction and environmental factors, especially the harsh rays of the sun. However, we do not always have the amount of hair that we desire. Whether your concern is excess hair or hair loss, there are treatment options that can address your unique situation and allow you to feel more comfortable in your skin.

Unwanted Hair

It can be difficult to deal with unwanted body or facial hair, especially if you feel that your hair is excessive or unmanageable. Furthermore, even normal hair growth can be bothersome. It can be incredibly frustrating to meticulously shave, wax, tweeze, or thread away unwanted hair, only for the shadow of new hair growth to appear in a matter of hours or days. That is why Shine MD offers safe and effective long-term laser hair removal treatments for our patients.


Hair Loss

Hair loss affects countless men and women all over the world, and it is often mentally and emotionally troublesome, especially because many people form emotional connections to our hair and its appearance.

Most hair loss is hereditary. Certain genes can cause the growth cycle of hair to weaken. Over time, the hair follicles shrink and eventually stop producing new hair. Men experience male pattern hair loss, which typically presents as a receding hairline, or a bald spot at the back of the head. Women, on the other hand, experience female pattern hair loss, which usually begins with thinning hair and a widening part.

Men experience hair loss more frequently than women, and it is more common with age. According to the Canadian Hair Loss Foundation, 50% of men will experience male pattern balding by the time they are 50 years old. Other factors can influence hair loss, including medical conditions like alopecia areata, as well as stress, tight hairstyles, and hair care routines

The clinicians at Shine MD offer hair rejuvenation treatments that can help stop or slow hair loss and can stimulate hair regrowth. Multiple sessions may be required to achieve your desired results, and the team at Shine MD will help devise a treatment plan that suits your needs and goals.
