Hirsutism

Hirsutism is the excessive growth of body or facial hair, in females this would include in a pattern seen normally occurring only in men.

It’s cause is hormonal. Androgens are often thought of as male hormones but, in fact, both men and women produce them, men usually in greater amounts than women.

Testosterone is the best-known androgen, but there are several others too. Hirsutism can be caused either by excessive abnormally high levels of androgens, or by the hair follicles being more sensitive than usual to normal androgen levels.  There are some medical conditions that can cause the inbalance.

Most women, however, with hirsutism have no hormone imbalance or underlying medical condition. Many women develop more facial or body hair gradually as they get older, especially after the menopause. In addition, women from different ethnic backgrounds have different patterns of hair growth, which may make them prone to having hair on their face, nipples or stomach.  There is also a tendency for Hirsutism to run in the family.

There is no complete cure for Hirsuitism but the condition is eased by anti Androgens from your Doctor and treated effectively with IPL therapy.

IPL treatments  aim to destroy the hair root permanently. A course of 6-8 treatments is initially required followed by maintenance treatments. For more information on IPL Hair Reduction click on FAQs
