Good option other than laser treatment. And is hair inhibitor creams and gels are good or harmful for skin. If use of hair inhibitor is fine please recommend me a good one. Hair growth in men and women is governed by hormones called androgens. Specifically, androgens are the hormones that cause the development of "masculine" features, both in men and women. One cause of extra hair growth in men is a condition known as hypertrichosis. According to the study hypertrichosis is a condition in which there is abnormal hair density and length. A potentially more serious cause of extra hair growth is hirsutism. Hirsutism is a condition in which the levels of androgens become elevated. It is important that you discuss your medical status so that actual cause can be identified and right treatment can be applied.

Excessive Hairs On Woman's Face - Is It Because Of Hormones?

Excessive Hairs On Woman's Face - Is It Because Of Hormones?

Though most may not admit, all women have hair on their face and body. It is often masked by home remedies or clever makeup tricks or frequent visits to the beauty salon. If you see a sudden spike in coarse or dark hair, especially on your face, it can be an embarrassing social condition.  Here are some insights into the condition and what you can do to get rid of it.

Blame it on your hormones:
In most cases, you can easily blame this condition on your hormones. Male hormones called androgens are responsible for the development of certain 'manly' features like deepening of voice or production of sperm. And the one hormone behind all this is called testosterone.

But women produce testosterone too- albeit in smaller quantities. If, for some reason, this hormone's level increases in women, it leads to increased sex drive, irregular menstrual cycle and yes, excessive facial and body hair.

One of the main causes of high levels of male sex hormones in premenopausal women is Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS), a condition which causes cysts to grow around the edge of the ovaries (the organs which produce eggs and sex hormones).  PCOS also results in excessive hair growth, acne and weight gain.

Some women are stuck with this condition in the post menopause stage too, when the hormonal imbalance fails to rectify itself after menopause has passed.

Besides blaming it all on the hormones, here are some other causes you can explore:  
a) Being obese (weight gain is a side effect of PCOS too, so this is a slightly tricky one)
b) Side effects from blood pressure medication
c) Hereditary condition: Blame your genes
d) Cushing's Syndrome or Acromegaly - rare hormonal disorders
e) An Ovarian tumor

Treatment-
Usually, cosmetic remedies are enough to get rid of unwanted or excess hair. So you may not have to go out of your way to handle this problem unless you have a special case. Most cases can be treated with

a) Shaving: Not the most womanly thing to do, but it is quick and easy. Mind the stubble between the shaves
b) Waxing: This is a pretty much standard procedure
c) Bleaching: Can work for areas you don't want to shave
d) Hair removal creams: Try and test out to see which one suits you
e) Laser treatment: A powerful beam of single color light is used to destroy the hair from its root

Laser Hair Removal- How To Prepare For It?

Laser Hair Removal- How To Prepare For It?

Excess hair growth or hair in unwanted parts of the body has always been a matter of concern for both women and men. Many people spend a considerable amount of time trying to remove excess hair from the face, chin, upper lips, legs, arms and other body parts with the help of conventional methods like shaving. In contrary to traditional hair removal methods, Laser Hair Removal is a new-age cosmetic treatment that works well for almost all your body parts (except around the eyes and eyelids). 

Laser hair removal uses concentrated laser beams on the area of your body from where you wish to remove excess hair. The treatment has gained immense popularity over the years and is a preferred option for most people. Your skin type and hair colour influence the results of your treatment. Ideally, the pigment of your hair should absorb the laser beams. The light should only damage the hair follicle and not your skin. 

Therefore a contrast between the color of your skin and hair will yield the best results. Before you opt for laser hair removal, you must prepare yourself for the procedure.

Here are a few things you must keep in mind- 

  1. Avoid tanning for at least a month before the procedure. Laser hair removal targets the dark pigment or melanin in the hair shaft. So, the lighter your skin, better are the results. Tanned skin makes it difficult for the laser to pick on the hair pigment. So you must avoid tanning for at least a month before going for the treatment. Don’t forget to apply sunscreen before stepping out. If your work requires you to stay outdoor for long hours, use one with an SPF 30. 
  2. Refrain from waxing and bleaching. Other skin removal techniques like bleaching or waxing reduce the efficacy of laser treatment. Refrain from using depilatory creams for at least 2-3 weeks prior to your first treatment session. Threading or waxing should be stopped at least a month before the procedure. 
  3. Shave the area as instructed by the doctor. You’ll be recommended to shave the area only a day or two before the scheduled appointment so that small hair follicles are visible. Removing longer hair can be painful during the procedure and increase the risk of side effects. Moreover, shaving at the eleventh hour may leave your skin irritated, broken and prone to reactions. 
  4. Excess hair growths can be due to a medical condition or genetics. Laser hair removal is the only method of eliminating unwanted hair growth permanently. Prior to the treatment you should consult a dermatologist and have your medical conditions reviewed so that you don’t end up with side effects.

Ask your dermatologist more about laser hair removal. Being hair free was never so simple.

Hi doctor, I have facial hair, is it okay to go for a facial wax? I'm concerned about if I get more hair after this.

Hi doctor, I have facial hair, is it okay to go for a facial wax? I'm concerned about if I get more hair after this.
While shaving facial hair makes the hair that grows back hard, waxing uproots the shaft of the hair. So, the hair that grows back is smooth. And smooth is sexy. Waxing damages your hair follicles; this is not a bad thing because it reduces the growth of hair and over time your face will be hair-free. But before going facial wax you need to discuss with us because some hormonal changes can be reasons of more hair growth. Let's us discuss for better precautionary step.

Dear Lybrate user, betnovate is a steroid cream which has many side effects when applied to the face, especially for more than 6 weeks and you have applied for 5 years. It is not a skin lightening cream, one of its side effects is depigmentation but other side effects are hair growth, thinning of skin and small blood vessels become bigger and visible. Please consult a dermatologist near you. Apply a good sunscreen daily from now on in the morning and reapply every 3 hourly. Some of the hair will reduce automatically, for the remaining, you will need to take some medicines or apply some creams depending on your blood reports; finally laser may be needed to remove the unwanted hairs. But it will be step by step process.
