Hair Removal

Orders Approved Before 3pm GMT

Excess hair growth, otherwise known as hirsutism, is a condition which affects a number of women. While it is certainly more common in those who have undergone the menopause, it can affect women of a younger age as well.

The condition is characterised by excessive hair in the facial area, particularly around the upper lip and chin, but this hair may be present on the back of a sufferer too. It is caused by a hormonal imbalance in the body of the sufferer. Polycystic ovary syndrome, an illness which affects the ovaries, is an example of a condition which might cause these symptoms.

Excess hair in women can have a negative effect on a sufferer’s self confidence, and in some cases lead to feelings of distress. Shaving and plucking might temporarily solve the problem, but not provide a long-term solution, and may even cause irritation to the area being affected.
