Unwanted hair: causes and treatment ...

Many women have unwanted hair on the upper lip, face or elsewhere on the body. Unwanted hair can be frustrating to manage and can even be a source of embarrassment. For most, self treatment options such as tweezing, shaving, waxing, bleaching or use of depilatories are sufficient.

However, in cases of excess hair growth (hirsutism), which is often caused by an overproduction or hypersensitivity to hormones called androgens, medical intervention may be required. Available therapeutic options include growth inhibitors, hormonal therapies (oral contraceptives and antiandrogens) or physical treatments (electrolysis or lasers). See your doctor to get an accurate diagnosis and more information on appropriate treatment options.
