Who does it affect?
Excess hair growth is usually something that only affects women. However, if a man feels that they are growing unwanted hairs they can consult a doctor to ask about treatment options. A little over 5% of women show signs of excess hair growth across many ethnicities and backgrounds.
How to treat it
Luckily, there are a couple options to help manage and eliminate excess hair growth. Short term solutions include shaving and waxing which can remove hair but not permanently. Creams are also a solution that can help eliminate unwanted hairs. Laser hair removal is the best option for a more permanent solution to excess hair growth. The treatment targets hairs at their roots, preventing them from growing back anytime soon. Finally, medications such as contraceptives can help the body develop fewer male hormones and eventually lead to less hair.
