Excess Body Hair

What It Is

Hair growth is a perfectly natural bodily process, however, this is often viewed negatively if hair starts to appear on certain parts of the body such as the legs or the face. Unfortunately, this seems particularly prevalent in women. Those suffering from excess hair growth usually find it to be thicker and darker than the other hair on their body – this means that your daily battle against excess body hair might be more difficult and time-consuming than it needs to be.

Hirsutism is also a condition that occurs more commonly in women than it does men. Those who are affected by it often report dark, thick hairs growing around the back, buttocks, thighs and face.

Why It Happens

Anyone can be affected by excessive hair growth. Whether you are male or female, old or young, it is a problem that plagues the best of us. Often, excess body hair is caused by higher-than-average testosterone levels – this may happen intermittently or might be an ongoing problem that you are trying to combat. Hormonal shifts are also a common cause of hair growth in women and this can be triggered by certain prescription medications or be a side effect of polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS).

How it can be treated

You are probably familiar with numerous at-home hair removal methods – everyone has their own preference, whether it be waxing, shaving or using creams or tweezers. However, if you would like a more permanent solution to this issue, you might want to consider Laser Hair Removal – a pain-free treatment that can stifle the growth of excess body hair for up to two years! Laser Hair Removal works by firing short bursts of light at the skin’s surface. This light is then absorbed, heating the surrounding area and destroying the unwanted hair in the process.
