Why do some women experience excess body hair?

Excess hair is a problem that affects not only women’s aesthetic appearance but also their self-esteem. It’s hard enough to hide excessive hair growth in different areas of the body, especially if you don’t take any steps to remedy the situation. And in such cases, you end up isolating yourself and your self-confidence starts to decline. The underlying cause of excessive hair growth is often a medical condition that needs to be identified and treated, while the aesthetic appearance can be improved through permanent hair removal sessions.

10% of women suffer from excessive hair growth

Apparently 10% of women experience excess hair growth in areas such as the face, abdomen, chest, back or thighs. Often, this excessive hairiness is also accompanied by other symptoms such as oily and acneic skin, ovarian dysfunction or infertility, even alopecia. These changes occur as a result of a hormonal imbalance – most women who experience this problem have a higher level of testosterone in their blood. Every woman’s body also produces a small amount of this male hormone, but when the amount secreted exceeds a certain level, various male traits start to appear, such as excess hairiness, alopecia or a thickening of the voice.

Here are the most common medical conditions that can lead to an increase in the amount of testosterone secreted by a woman’s body:

  • Polycystic ovary syndrome – women suffering from this syndrome frequently experience cysts on their ovaries,
  • Cushing’s syndrome – causes an increase in cortisol levels over a longer period of time,
  • Various tumors (often located in the ovaries or adrenal glands).

Of course, there are also women who genetically inherit this excess hairiness – so if you have a family member who experiences excess hair, chances are you’re likely to experience it too.

The first step to take when you notice that your hair is starting to grow uncontrollably is to see a doctor to identify exactly what’s causing it and get appropriate treatment. Then you can schedule an appointment at Deluxe Clinic for permanent hair removal sessions that will help you get rid of the unsightly appearance and enjoy a high self-esteem again.

In general, permanent hair removal sessions give you a 70-90% reduction in excess hair, but results vary from person to person.
