Excess Body & Facial Hair
All women have body & facial hair.  Normal hair is generally light & fine in texture.  Excessive body & facial hair is darker & course in texture.  Excessive body hair is a problem that is quite a pain to deal with. And not only is the removal of this hair an exasperating & time-consuming affair but it can also damage your skin in the long run. Chemical removal of hair or constant waxing & shaving can damage the outer layer of your skin giving it an unpleasant hue & appearance and also damage its texture & tone.

Why do men & women have excessive body hair?
Excessive body hair can be genetic or hormonal in nature or caused by medication. Problems such as Hypertrichosis & Hirsutism can also result in abnormal hair growth in men & women. Hirsutism is excess hair in areas where it’s typically seen in men, such as the face and lower abdomen. Hypertrichosis, on the other hand, can increase hair anywhere on the body.  Hirsutism is particularly alarming in women as it makes way for a man-like, hair growth pattern on the face (just like a beard or a moustache).
The presence of excess body hair can lead to feelings of self-consciousness. However, the hormonal imbalance that can lead to it, may compromise a woman’s health & therefore needs to be treated
