Excess Facial and Body Hair

It is normal to have some hair on the face and body, but excess hair can cause discomfort for others and may leave them feeling self-conscious about their appearance.

What do we mean by excessive facial and body hair?

An excessive amount of hair growth is caused by hormones called androgens. For women, the hair may grow in places where men often have a lot of hair due to hormonal imbalance. This includes the upper lip, chin, chest, and back. Hair growth causes no physical harm, and the type of treatment to remove or reduce hair depends on personal preference.
