Hirsutism Treatments

Female Facial Hair Removal


Most hirsutism treatments are geared towards the treating of polycystic ovarian syndrome or PCOS, the accompanying infertility and removal of excess body hair.

The causes of hirsutism are nearly always genetic.

Too much male androgen hormones (testosterone) are in a sufferer’s body.

If the specific cause of the hairyness isn’t totally healed, the affected body will just keep on producing these unwanted hair.

The most common causes are polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) and other idiopathic causes.

Severe to moderate hirsutism reacts well to anti-androgen hormone treatment. Are you by any chance suffering from PCOS? Then you’ll know how difficult it is to get diagnosed correctly.

I recommend Natural Ovarian Cyst And PCOS Relief Secrets by Laura Hennings. You’ll receive an additional 4 bonus e-books.

Find a detailed explanation of the illness on the hirsutism page. The hormone imbalance may result in obesity, infertility, acne and excessive body hair.

Change in the amount of body hair is only noticeable after about 6-12 months’ continued use of the medication to counteract their male hormones.

For best results they must continue with the medication for several years.

The most common causes are polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) and other idiopathic causes. In the USA, about 70% of patients with PSOS are affected by excessive body hair. They share their sorrows on the Soul Cysters blog.

It is imperative that the illness must be under control before any form of long-term or permanent treatment is started to get rid of the body hair.

The presence of too much testosterone causes the female body to produce terminal hair in male androgenic areas of the body.

If the hormones are not under control, all your time and money will be wasted, because the hair will simply grow back again. Photo by Newcelica.

Once the hormones are under control, the best option is to start with electrolysis on facial hair.

Female body hair removal is just as important, but luckily most of these body hair can be covered with clothes without looking strange.

I would definitely recommend laser treatments, because it gives long term results. Another hair removal option to consider is intense pulsed light or IPL.
