Treating Women With Rampant Hair Growth

Many women want the hair removed on their body so that they can look attractive to the people around them. However, some women need their hair removed because of the natural conditions of their body.

One of these precarious hair growth conditions in women is known as hirsutism which can actually turn more serious than people expect.

Hirsutism is a condition in which unwanted hair grows in places where it usually grows on men. This includes areas such as the face, the chest and the back. This type of hair growth often consists of coarse, pigmented hair, sometimes in massive amounts.

Hirsutism is often associated with high levels of androgens which are male sex hormones that allow the fine hairs on the body, vellus hairs, to become dark, curly and coarse. These hairs are known as terminus hairs. The high level of androgens causes the unwanted growth in the number of terminus hairs.

The high androgen levels can be caused by numerous conditions. For instance, polycystic ovary syndrome could cause hirsutism which is also caused by an imbalance of sex hormones. Polycystic ovary syndrome also causes irregular periods, obesity, infertility and multiple cysts on the ovaries.

Cushing’s syndrome could also cause hirsutism. It is caused by a high level of exposure to the steroid hormone cortisol, which is used in the body’s response to stress. High levels of cortisol could alter the balance of sex hormones in the human body, causing hirsutism.

Some of the other conditions that cause hirsutism include congenital adrenal hyperplasia, which occurs when the adrenal glands overproduce cortisol and androgen. Tumors and medications could also cause hirsutism. At other times, there isn’t an identifiable cause. Hirsutism happens to occur more frequently with Mediterranean, Middle Eastern and South Asian women.

It is important for people to see a doctor for any serious conditions. Although hirsutism may seem extremely distressing, it may also be a sign of a much more dangerous disease.

With all that said, it isn’t especially hard to adjust to rampant hair growth, as long as women are flexible. They could simply use the hair removal solutions that were previously written about in this website.

For instance, women could just easily shave the hair off if they are looking for a quick, inexpensive solution. They could choose from a myriad of other options, such as using an epilator or a hair removal cream. They could also ask their doctor if they could use the lotion Vaniqa on their skin, to slow down the rate of hair growth.

If women are looking to get rid of that hair for good, they could always try some of the more permanent hair removal methods. They could get their body waxed at a local salon or spa. They could set up an appointment for an electrolysis treatment or a laser hair removal session. They could even purchase an at-home laser so that they can treat themselves.

There is a wide range of other hair removal options that people can choose from. People should research each procedure to make sure that it works for their comfort and safety.
