Hormones play a role in every person. Whether the hormone shift in transitioning
into puberty, or when carrying a life during pregnancy, or when transitioning into
the pre and menopausal stage of life. Other major hormone shifts can be caused
by certain medical conditions in the body like hirsutism, PCOS, or endometriosis.
How does the shift in hormones affect hair growth you might be wondering? The
female body functions with 2 dominant hormones, namely estrogen and
progesterone. During normal functioning, these two hormones alternate in levels
every month, around ovulation and around the menstrual cycle.
Another hormone that exists in both a woman’s and a man’s body are androgen

further and further apart, as they are effectively treated, and you would notice
that the growth will start reducing, and eventually will never return.
We also have designed a great home-care kit that you can use in conjunction
with your professional series of treatments, this way, if you want to remove a
stray hair at home with tweezers, you can ensure that you are still treating it with
