TREATMENT FOR EXCESSIVE HAIR AND HAIR REMOVAL METHODS:


  • The treatment for excessive hair is not preferred if no abnormal aetiology are diagnosed.
  • Several medications are also available for the treatment of hirsutism.  
  •  These medications can decrease the amount of body hair, stop the growth of new hair and

decrease the growth rate and coarseness of existing hair.

  • Most of these medications must be taken for at least six months before improvement is

detectable, and not all medications are equally effective in all women.

BIRTH CONTROLLING PILLS:

  • Birth control pills lower the levels of androgens.
  • They are usually the first choice for the treatment of hirsutism.
