Dark or pale skin, red or blond pigmentation, puberty or adulthood: each person has a unique hair type that changes over the course of their life!
A tiny muscle is attached to the base of each hair. When we get a chill, it contracts and increases our body temperature. That’s what’s behind the “goose bumps” effect. Another interesting fact: contrary to popular belief, shaving does not increase hair growth!
Like cells, the functioning of the hair system is complex and unique to each person. It can be explained by three factors:
Abundant or sparse eyebrows, curly, voluminous or fine hair: our genetic heritage transmits our physical characteristics and the composition of our genes. The hair system is no exception, and as such, heredity explains the structure of our hair, including its colour and density. That’s why, for example, we perceive less abundant but above all lighter and more moderate hair growth in northern populations compared to Mediterranean populations.
Hormonal changes have a direct impact on hair, whether they are biological – such as pregnancy and puberty – or pathological – such as hyperandrogenism. Influenced by the level of hormones in the body, hairiness can therefore be normal or excessive. Too high a level of male hormones, a greater physiological sensitivity to them, or a decrease in female hormones (estrogens) as in the case of Stein-Leventhal syndrome – more commonly known as polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) – or Cushing’s syndrome, can lead to a change in growth, pigmentation and hair density.
Some drugs tend to modify the hair system of individuals. Although everyone is more or less sensitive to them, use of glucocorticoid-based treatments – such as cortisone and hydrocortisone – but also cyclosporin, diazoxide, minoxidil, danazol or some anabolic steroids can lead to more significant hairiness.
A natural condition since the beginning of time, there’s no preventing the appearance of hair. However, it is a common practice to control, reduce or even completely eliminate hair growth in affected regions using various techniques, including shaving, waxing, sugar depilation, electrolysis or, like at Dermapure, hair removal lasers.
The platforms chosen by Dermapure for hair removal ensure the elimination of hair in a few sessions. Two methods are offered depending on the clinic visited: pulsed light or laser. These two technologies are very similar in that they both deliver an intense light to the hair follicle. When this light is absorbed by a living hair, it is then transformed into heat and destroys the hair bulb to prevent it from growing back. The treatment is flawlessly precise and offers long-term results for both the face and body.
Ideal for pulsed light or laser hair removal, this cream strengthens and helps to repair the skin’s protective barrier. Rich in lipids, ceramides and omega-3 and 6, it provides long-lasting skin soothing and hydration.
This body lotion contains a unique blend of lipids as well as natural moisturizers and citrus oils that give the skin a soft, smooth and well hydrated appearance. Regular use brings softness and suppleness to the skin while reducing dry patches.
