Excess hair growth, often referred to as Hirsutism, can be a hereditary condition but is usually caused by a hormonal imbalance when the body produces an increased level of male hormones (androgens), or by a separate medical condition such as polycystic ovary syndrome or Cushing’s syndrome.
About this condition
Excess hair growth can occur at any age and will most commonly appear on the face, neck, back, chest, buttocks or thighs. Depending on its severity, this condition can cause distress or embarrassment, particularly to female patients.
We offer a variety of laser hair removal technologies to treat this condition, which work by precisely targeting and destroying the hair follicles. These include Venus Versa and laser hair removal. The benefits of these and other appropriate treatments will be talked through with you at you consultation.
