We all have natural hair growth on almost very part of our bodies, but some of us suffer from excessive growth of unwanted hair. This condition is known as hirsutism, and mainly affects women. It creates hairs with a texture difference to normal, fine hair growth, often being much more coarse and darker in colour. Common areas of compliant include the face, chest, arms and back.
- PCOS (polycystic ovary syndrome)
- Certain medications
- Health problems
Some medications can help to slow down excess hair growth, such as the contraceptive pill and anti-androgen medications like Aldactone (spironolactone) and Proscar (finasteride).
However, the most effective way to reduce and control excess hair growth is IPL Hair Reduction or Laser Hair reduction, both of which are available at Body Perfection.
