Excess Face & Body Hair – Female
Causes of Excess Face and Body HairA number of factors can cause excess body hair, including hormone imbalance, polycystic ovaries, ovarian cysts or excess secretion of steroids. We use blood tests and ultrasound scans to pinpoint the source of the problem for each patient.Excess Face and Body Hair – TreatmentWe tailor treatment to meet each person’s needs, and your problem might not be as bad as you think. Medication can be very effective and often less expensive than repeat cosmetic hair-removal procedures. (Please note that this treatment is only for patients over 18 and does not affect the head hair.) In some cases, a day keyhole surgery might be necessary.
With excess hair, improvement is gradual but our treatment addresses the cause and can help improve your menstrual health and future fertility. You can learn more about this in our Polycystic Ovaries section.
