Excessive or unwanted hair can affect your face and body. Unwanted growth can be due to many reasons including hormones, medications and genetics. Hirutism and Polycystic Ovary Syndrome are hormonal conditions where women may experience excessive hair growth. The fine, sometimes barely visible hair on the face such as chin and upper lip areas, chest, stomach and back becomes thicker and darker.
Facial and body hair can be fine and unnoticeable until changes occur and the hair begins to grow darker, thicker and possibly even longer and stubborn to remove. Both women and men may experience unwanted hair which can be removed for cosmetic reasons. Common areas include upper lip, chin, back, legs, chest, stomach, underarms and groin area.
Excessive or unwanted hair may be treatable and there are many different options depending on the symptoms and/or cause. Please book an appointment to discuss your concerns further with COZmedics doctors & medical team
