Facial hair removal in Norwich by threading

Excess facial hair and Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS)

I often get asked why some women have excess facial hair and how can it be removed. One of the main symptoms of PCOS is excess hair on the chin, upper lip and general face. Hirsutism (excessive hair growth in women) is said to affect 80% of PCOS sufferers. It can cause really low self esteem and depression for some women. Even preventing them from going out. I see many women on a regular basis at my Norwich beauty salon for facial hair removal by threading the whole face. Please never allow facial hair to ruin your day/night out. It’s extremely easy to remove and stays away for weeks until new growth appears.

Acne on the chin is another symptom of PCOS caused by hormonal imbalance. Never pick or scratch spots as this can result in scarring and take spots longer to heal. Regular facials and a daily skin care routine can help.

Other reasons for hair growth is hormone imbalance, there are few things in life that cause women’s hormones to become imbalanced. Menopause is one, this is because the testosterone, which we naturally have a small amount of us rises causing hairs to grow. Also pregnancy is another common one. You normally lose the hair again shortly after your child is born. Stress can play a massive part of this too. It’s important to find times to relax in life. Just pick what works for you! If you are a very active person meditation for relaxation might not be for you. Instead, maybe go for a run and clear your head that way.

Under-active thyroid is a nightmare for hormones too. It actually causes the opposite with hair growth and reduces it. Thinning ladies brow hairs etc, it can also cause weight gain and lack of energy. It’s important to get this diagnosed ASAP.

Please don’t feel embarrassed to book in for facial hair removal, facial hair removal is one of my most common treatments in my Norwich salon. The age of people suffering from facial hair is extremely varied. Please don’t think you are ever alone in having facial hair, many women suffer with facial hair and it’s very simply removed by threading. Facial hair removal is often not talked about, which means many women feel alone with this problem. I work from home, so this is ideal for facial threading as there is sometimes slight redness after any hair removal and you can simply go straight home and not be worried about seeing anyone you know as I don’t have a salon full of people. All appointments are by prior booking. The best way to book in with me is via email. I am rarely able to answer my phone as it’s on silent when I work and not on me when it’s family time. I recommend full face threading every 4-6 weeks depending on your hair growth.

Threading is done by a twisted piece of cotton being rolled over the skin trapping the hairs in the knot/ twist and removing the facial hair from the root. Threading is an ideal treatment for facial hair removal as it is chemical free and leaves very little irritation.

After Facial hair removal by threading I recommend keeping the area clean and applying witch hazel or rose water. Rose water is great for settling your skin after treatments. I love rose water. It’s the same PH as your skin, so ideal.  Your skin will feel silky smooth, but please don’t be tempted to keep touching the face as you can cause spots to appear. I recommend keeping the skin completely clear of make-up for 24 hours after having facial hair removal done.

It’s important to have regular threading appointments for facial hair removal as all the hairs will be in different growth cycles. By having regular appointments the aim is to get all the hairs in the same growth pattern.

See prices on treatment page – Threading can be done by time.
