When hair grows excessively on the face or the body this is a signal of hormonal disorder and needs medical attention and treatment. Aggressive hair growth is a condition that many people have to face every day when they look in the mirror. Menopause is the first cause of facial hair growth in women. This is triggered by a hormonal disorder as the levels of estrogen drops due to the lack of menstruation. Hormonal treatment is very appropriate to solve such problems. Some contraceptive methods can have facial hair growth as a side effect in this case it is recommended to stop immediately the treatment with such pills.
Hair can be removed by waxing, even if it’s a painful method; it gives up to fore weeks of hair free. Laser hair removal can also be an efficient method to get rid of unwanted hair, but it only works for dark hair. The blond hair has to be removed by wax or by shaving, thus the method is permanent in only some cases.
To reduce hair growth, a good nutrition is required. Hair grows faster when eating high cholesterol foods or if having a lower weight. Contrary to the hair that grows on the scalp, body hair is powered up by a poor nutrition. Another way to reduce hair growth is by consuming foods with a vegetable correspondent of the estrogen such as soy foods. This will diminish the rate of body and face hair growth but will not affect scalp hair. Also, there are inhibitors which can be purchased at drug stores and that are very good in reducing hair growth on the body.
These products can come in pills or as lotions for Appling on the areas that present hair growth problems.
Other than this, the traditional method of shaving is not a good option because hair will just grow back, stronger and darker in some cases. Waxing remains a temporary method but the only permanent way to get rid of unwanted hair is by estrogen treatments or testosterone inhibitors and by getting the proper medical attention to solve this condition.
