Excess Hair Growth Treatment

Excess Hair Growth Treatment

Treatment for excess hair growth (hirsutism) includes removing the hair by shaving, plucking, waxing, depilatories, electrolysis, bleaching or laser surgery, or medication used to control any underlying endocrine disorder. Excessive hairiness is characterized by abnormal hair growth on areas of skin that are not normally hairy. Although the condition can affect both men and women, it usually presents a problem only for women.
