Women can find unwanted hair growth very embarrassing. This is especially true if she sports hair growth on her face. Excessive hair growth on a woman is also known as hirsutism. This differs from the usual fine 'peach fuzz' that covers the rest of the body. Such hair can be characterized as dark and coarse.
Hirsutism has a number of causes. Some of the most common reasons for this condition are:
Hirsutism often runs in families. Thus if your mother or grandmother suffered from this skin condition, chances are that you may suffer from the same. This is most commonly seen in people from the Mediterranean region and south East Asia.
Hirsutism is also linked to an abnormally high level of male hormones like androgens in the body. This is usually seen in cases where women suffer from polycystic ovary syndrome, Cushings syndrome or tumors in the adrenal gland.
A shift in hormone levels is also a common side effect of many types of medication. This is typically seen in drugs that include hormones such as anabolic steroids, drugs that spur hair growth and drugs that help with endometriosis.
Facial hirsutism can be treated in a number of ways. Some of the ways to remove excess hair are:
This is an easy and quick way to remove unwanted skin. however, it may irritate the skin and with every shave, the hair growth may get coarser.
This is a temporary solution for Hirsutism but may irritate the skin and does not suit dark skinned women.
When done regularly, waxing can reduce the amount of hair growth. However, this is a painful technique and can cause skin inflammation.
- Laser hair treatment
Compared to the above forms of hair removal, laser treatment can remove hair for the longest period of time. However, this is not a permanent solution and can have side effects like the lightening or darkening of skin.
This is permanent solution to hirsutism. It can require several sittings and may also lead to scarring or changes in skin colour.
Prescription drugs can also change the way hair grows on the body. However, if you stop using this medication the hair growth with go back to its original form. Birth control pills and anti androgen blockers are the most common form of prescription drugs used to treat hirsutism.

Hair loss is something which is pretty difficult and embarrassing to go through, is it not? So rather than going for new-fangled treatments which may or may not work, would it not be a better idea to resort to homeopathy, which has a track record that speaks for itself?
Hair loss has been treated by homeopathy quite successfully, to say the least. In order to understand how homeopathy can help hair loss, it is important to understand the hair growth cycle in a proper manner, to start with. The cycle consists of three phases, namely the anagen, the catagen and the telogen phases. During the first phase, that lasts anywhere between two to seven years, the hair begins to grow. It is immediately succeeded by the catagen phase, which can last 10 days to a fortnight. What is interesting is that during this phase, the blood supply to the person’s hair stops and the hair dies.
Then, over the course of the telogen phase, which is about two to three months long, the hair ‘rests’. What is fascinating about the process is that every single hair will undergo this, independent of the other hair. The problem of hair loss is when there is a lower amount of hair in the anagen phase, as compared to the other phases.
The medicine which is provided by homeopathy to deal with hair loss depends on the case of hair loss. This can be said to be especially true, due to the fact that homeopathy is something which is very contextual i.e. dependent from person to person.
Anaemia can be one of the reasons for a person losing hair. It’s a condition in which there is not enough iron in the body. If this is the case, the homeopathic medicine which is likely to be prescribed is Borax. However, there are others such as Cinchona Officinalis and Calcarea Phosphorica which are just as good, and may be prescribed by the doctor instead.
Sometimes, when a person experiences hair fall, it occurs only in patches and this case is medically known as alopecia areata. Fluoricum acidum may be made use of, but that is only if the patient is a person who has a short temper. Is homeopathy not fascinating? Phosphorus is not only a chemical compound which is popular in fireworks but in a certain form, it is also a pretty good cure for hair loss!
When the entire scalp loses hair, Lycopodium clavatum is the go to homeopathic medicine generally, though Sulphur may also be used.
