Embracing My Skin: A Gynecologist's Journey with Excessive Hair GrowthAs a gynecologist from China, my profession demands a high level of self-confidence and poise. However, my struggle with excessive hair growth on my skin filled me with a range of negative emotions - fear, frustration, sadness, anger, guilt, disappointment, shame, regret, and a feeling of being completely broken. Seeking a solution, I underwent Q-Switched Nd:YAG Laser treatment at Athena Derma Clinic in Dubai. This treatment not only addressed my skin concern but also transformed my perception of beauty and self-acceptance.

The Struggle with Excessive Hair Growth:

For years, I battled with excessive hair growth on my skin, particularly in visible areas. This condition affected my self-esteem and confidence, triggering fear of judgment from others and frustration at not being able to control my appearance. The constant grooming and removal of hair led to sadness and anger, while the societal pressure to conform to beauty standards resulted in guilt and disappointment. I felt shame and regret for not being able to embrace my natural self, leaving me feeling completely broken and insecure.

Seeking a Solution:

Determined to find a permanent solution, I researched treatments for excessive hair growth and discovered Q-Switched Nd:YAG Laser treatment at Athena Derma Clinic in Dubai. The prospect of a long-term solution filled me with hope, and I decided to undergo the treatment to regain control of my skin and confidence.

The Q-Switched Nd:YAG Laser Treatment Process:

The treatment process at Athena Derma Clinic was professional and transformative. The laser targeted the hair follicles, inhibiting hair growth without damaging the surrounding skin. With each session, I noticed a significant reduction in hair growth, leading to smoother and clearer skin. The visible improvement in my skin's appearance boosted my confidence and self-esteem, allowing me to embrace my natural beauty.

The Impact on Physical and Mental Well-being:

The physical impact of the Q-Switched Nd:YAG Laser treatment was profound. It addressed my skin concern effectively, resulting in smoother and hair-free skin. This physical transformation had a positive impact on my mental well-being, alleviating the negative emotions I had been experiencing. I no longer felt fear, frustration, or shame about my appearance. Instead, I felt empowered and confident in my skin, leading to a newfound sense of self-acceptance and pride.

Tips for Maintaining Healthy Skin:

During my consultation at Athena Derma Clinic, the doctors provided me with tips for maintaining healthy skin, which I found beneficial:

Regular Moisturization:

  •  Choose the Right Moisturizer: Select a moisturizer that matches your skin type—whether dry, oily, or combination—and is free of harsh chemicals or fragrances.
  •  Apply Moisturizer Correctly: Use gentle, upward strokes to apply moisturizer to your face and body after bathing or showering to lock in moisture.
  •  Consider Humidifiers: Use a humidifier in your home, especially during dry seasons, to add moisture to the air and prevent your skin from becoming too dry.

Sun Protection:

  •  Use Sunscreen Daily: Apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30 every day, even on cloudy days or during the winter months.
  •  Reapply Sunscreen: Reapply sunscreen every two hours or immediately after swimming, sweating, or towel drying to ensure continuous protection.
  •  Seek Shade: Limit your exposure to direct sunlight, especially during peak hours (10 a.m. to 4 p.m.), and seek shade when outdoors.

Healthy Diet:

  •  Eat a Variety of Nutrient-Rich Foods: Include fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and lean proteins in your diet to provide essential vitamins and minerals that promote healthy skin.
  •  Stay Hydrated: Drink plenty of water throughout the day to keep your skin hydrated and flush out toxins.
  •  Limit Sugary and Processed Foods: Reduce your intake of sugary and processed foods, as they can contribute to skin issues such as acne and premature aging.

Stress Management:

  •  Practice Relaxation Techniques: Engage in activities such as yoga, meditation, or deep breathing exercises to reduce stress levels and promote overall skin health.
  •  Get Adequate Sleep: Aim for 7-9 hours of quality sleep each night to allow your skin to repair and regenerate.
  •  Exercise Regularly: Physical activity can help reduce stress and improve blood circulation, which is beneficial for skin health.


My experience with Q-Switched Nd:YAG Laser treatment at Athena Derma Clinic was life-changing. It not only addressed my skin concern but also taught me the importance of self-acceptance and embracing my natural beauty. Today, I stand tall, confident, and proud of my skin, a testament to the fact that true beauty comes from within. I am grateful for the opportunity to share my story and inspire others to embrace their unique beauty with confidence and pride.

Incorporating tips suggested by doctor  into  daily routine can help maintain healthy, glowing skin. Remember that everyone's skin is unique, so it may take some experimentation to find the routine that works best for you. By prioritizing skincare and adopting healthy lifestyle habits, you can achieve and maintain beautiful, healthy skin.
