Hirsutism and Hypertrichosis

Hirsutism and hypertrichosis are imperfections characterized by an abnormal amount of hair growth in those parts of the body where terminal hair does not normally occur.

Hirsutism affects women and sometimes children, since the rising of androgens causes a male pattern of body hair, sometimes excessive, particularly in locations where women normally do not develop terminal hair during puberty (chest, abdomen, back and face). Hypertrichosis is the medical term for excessive hair growth that affect both men and women. It can be generalized hyper, which occurs over the entire body, and localized, which is restricted to a certain area.

Hirsutism and hypertrichosis are not only an aesthetic problem, they can be caused by either an increased level of androgens, the male hormones, or an oversensitivity of hair follicles to androgens. Male hormones such as testosterone stimulate hair growth, increase size and intensify the growth and pigmentation of hair. It is recommended to visit an endocrinologist for a accurate diagnosis and help.

Certainly these imperfections are very annoying and may get worse if not treated in the right way. We don't recommend the use or liposoluble wax or depilatory strips because:
1) it could break the hair, makeing it stronger
2) it could cause folliculitis in the face that can worsen your problem
