Hair Removal

Excess hair growth (or hirsutism) is a source of frustration for many women. It most typically affects the face, back and chest, and is caused by a high presence of male hormones (androgens) in the body. Although it can affect younger women, it is more common in postmenopausal women, due to the hormonal changes the body undergoes during this period.

At present there is no cure for hirsutism, but the condition can be treated. In cases where cosmetic measures, such as waxing, bleaching or plucking, do not achieve sufficient results, a doctor may prescribe a medication to help combat symptoms. In premenopausal women, certain combined oral contraceptives have been known to help reduce the effect of androgens and limit excess hair growth. In older, postmenopausal women, or in cases where oral contraceptives have not proved effective, a doctor may prescribe Vaniqa.
