You might have noticed it shedding away from the top of your scalp, where you want it most, but why has that hair travelled to so many unfamiliar places? The truth is that it is common for aging men to experience unwanted hair growth in places like the ears, nose, and even on the back. If you are among them, then you likely wonder why it stops growing in some areas and starts in others.
It is common knowledge that, as a person ages, the state of hair changes. It can change in color, texture, and in fullness. The change, for men, becomes most notable as their bodies begin to produce a series of hormones known as androgen. Included in that group of hormones is the much talked about, testosterone. Typically, this production begins just after puberty for males. It will then level of when those men reach their fifties. Unfortunately, that means that most of the genetically-related hair loss will occur during those years in between. The good news, however, is what you have at sixty will most likely stick it out until the end because, just as hormone reduction leads to an increased need of the HCG diet as the metabolism slows, the reduced androgen means that hair follicles become more stable.
Hair loss is expected by many man, particularly those who have seen the men before them go bald, but what about the random sprouting elsewhere? Millions of men complain regularly about the small tufts of hair that can develop in their ears, in their noses or down their back, just as they begin to lose what they have on top of their heads. Just as the hair follicles up there respond to increased androgen levels, follicles elsewhere on the body can as well. In some instances, the dose of hormones can encourage hair growth, like that seen in the ears, nose, and on the back.
The good news is that there are many tools on the market today that can help address the unwanted increase in hair growth. Many of them, such as trimmers and razors, can be used in the comfort of your own home. Unfortunately, when the hair has made a home on your back, it can be difficult to address on your own. You will likely require the help of a spouse, loved one, or a professional. Waxing is commonly done in salons and spas around the country. It is quick, relatively affordable, and can provide longer lasting results that shaving alone will. The downside, of course, is the pain that it causes in the moment. If you have a hard time with pain, but really want to opt for waxing, you might consider taking an over the counter pain medication prior to your visit.
For hair in the ears or on the back, there is another option for removal. It is less painful and even longer lasting than waxing would be. Visiting a laser studio in Austin is a good idea if you are considering laser hair removal. Austin technicians can perform near miracles with the concentrated light beams. Though it will take a few sessions, the ultimate outcome can be a permanent removal of the hair in the treated area, which is great news for those who want to do away with the hair in less than desirable locales.
