Facial Hair

What do you have facial hair ?

In women, the presence of facial hair is often due to hormonal imbalances or changes.

Some common causes of facial hair in women include:

  • Genetics: Some women are naturally more prone to developing facial hair due to their genetic makeup.
  • Hormonal imbalances: Hormonal imbalances, such as an excess of androgens (male hormones) in the body, can lead to the growth of facial hair in women.
  • Medical conditions: Certain medical conditions, such as polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) and adrenal gland disorders, can cause hormonal imbalances and lead to the growth of facial hair.
  • Medications: Some medications, such as steroids and certain hormonal medications, can cause the growth of facial hair in women.
  • Age: As women age, hormonal changes can lead to the growth of facial hair.
What can you do about it ?

There are several effective treatments available to manage facial hair in women. 

Here are some of the most common options:

  • Laser hair removal: Laser hair removal is a popular and effective treatment for reducing or removing unwanted facial hair. During this treatment, a laser is used to target and destroy the hair follicles, preventing future hair growth.
  • Prescription medications: Prescription medications, such as spironolactone, can help block the effects of androgens (male hormones) on the body, reducing the growth of facial hair.
  • Topical creams: Prescription topical creams, such as eflornithine, can help slow down the growth of facial hair.
  • Hormonal therapy: Hormonal therapy, such as birth control pills, can help regulate hormonal imbalances that may be contributing to facial hair growth.

It’s important to speak with a dermatologist to determine the most appropriate treatment option based on your individual needs and concerns.
