Causes And Treatment Of Excessive Facial Hair

MD - Dermatology, MBBS
Dermatologist, Patna
Causes And Treatment Of Excessive Facial Hair

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:

Genes
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.

Hormones

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.

Medication
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:

Shaving
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.

Bleaching
This is a temporary solution for Hirsutism but may irritate the skin and does not suit dark skinned women.

Waxing
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.

Electrolysis
This is permanent solution to hirsutism. It can require several sittings and may also lead to scarring or changes in skin colour.

Medication
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.

Dear, *To control the oily secretion you should maintain your hormonal level. Because imbalance in hormone level causes excessive oily secretion on face. So do not take stress and do exercise daily such as running, joggong 10 to 15 minutes. Do long breathing pranayams daily from 5 to 10 minutes. • Drink 7 -8 glass of water daily. * Apply rose water on your face daily for 5 minutes. • Use a face pack of fuller's earth (multani mitti) with rose water one time in a day for seven days. It removes toxins from skin. *Apply cucumber juice mixed with curd for 5 minutes and rinse with water.

Hello Lybrate User, Take homeopathic treatment for pimples, since pimples or acne can be caused by various factors such as, excess oil secretion, changes in hormone levels, genetic predisposition, pollution and diet, homeopathy can be an effective way to treat acne. This is because treatment in homeopathy is individualistic and holistic. Individual examination, case analysis, your medical history, your physical, mental and emotional constitution and your susceptibility to the disease are all very important considerations in determining the exact homeopathic remedy for you. It is effective, harmless and without side effects. Along with follow this tips to get rid from pimples - * wash your face as often as 3-4 times a day. *Use a gentle face wash when you wash your face and scrub face twice a week. * Avoid spicy, oily and sugary food. * Drink plenty of water and take healthy and balanced diet. * Drink juices - whenever you are struggling with pimples, juices are always in the rescue and help you achieve flawless skin. Beets, celery, apple, aloe vera, tomato, cucumber, orange, lemon, papaya and juices are considered excellent for the skin. These juices purify the blood and thereby improving your skin tone. If you want to take homeopathic treatment consult me on lybrate privately. Take care.

Apply heat (using a clean cloth warmed by pressing iron/tawa) for 10 min three-four times a day. No eye drops will do good. Eyes do not need cleaning by us; God has provided tears for this.

Please note the following in respect to your queries: there can be many reasons behind your hair fall - like mental worries, nutritional deficiency, hereditary and anemia. Take homeopathic medicine baryta carb 200 (5 drops in little water) one dose and revert after 2 weeks. Apply jaborandi hair oil. Drink 8-10 glasses of water daily. Eat healthy and balanced food like pulses, green leafy vegetables, fresh fruits and nuts etc. Add more vitamin rich food to your diet. Avoid stress and anger by meditation. Cut down the use of hair spray, hair gel. Take sound/good sleep. Avoid too much exposure of your hair to sunlight/ hair styling tools, as they damage hair and cause split ends.

Some sources of this are – eggs, whole grains, all types of seeds like flaxseed, sesame seeds, sunflower seeds, Dry fruits and nuts etc.
