Causes of Excessive Hair Growth

Excessive hair growth is a common concern for women as we age, and can be a very personal issue.  Of course, it’s completely normal to have a certain amount of hair on your body and face, known as ‘peach fuzz’. However, a very noticeable amount of excessive hair growth in females especially can be problematic if you aren’t happy with the way it looks.

Anyone can be affected by excessive hair growth regardless of their age or gender. In men, excessive facial hair and body hair can sometimes be the result increased testosterone levels. A rare condition of excessive hair growth anywhere on the body is known as hypertrichosis, or werewolf syndrome.

Excessive hair growth in females can be a side effect of a hormonal shift or medical condition. Hirsutism is one condition of excessive hair growth which causes excessive hair growth on the upper lip, chin, chest, stomach and back; areas where it is common for men to have body hair. The most common cause of hirsutism is polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), but sometimes there is no obvious cause.

All treatments are tailored to the individual and personal experiences and results may vary. We recommend a one to one consultation with our Treatment Coordinators to discuss your treatment options.

How to treat excessive Hair Growth

If your excessive hair growth is being caused by an underlying condition of excessive hair growth, such as hirsutism caused by PCOS,

There are many at-home hair removal methods such as shaving, tweezing, waxing, threading and hair removal creams. Whether it’s caused by hirsutism, hypertrichosis or a change in your hormone levels, more extensive and excessive hair growth takes more time and effort to remove.

What’s more is the results of these methods are not very long-lasting and so require regular maintenance.

If you would like a more permanent solution to excessive hair growth, our Treatment Coordinators may be able to completely stop unwanted excessive facial hair and excessive body hair.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the benefits of laser hair removal?

One of the main benefits of laser hair removal at EF MEDISPA is that it is virtually a pain-free treatment. It is faster and more effective than any of the past laser or light technologies. The light beams are focused on the treated areas, passing through the skin and directly absorbed by the hair follicles. It can also be used to treat various skin and hair types. It can be used to remove excessive facial hair where the skin is more sensitive than on the body.

What is the difference between IPL and laser hair removal?

Laser Hair Removal is much more precise than IPL, it can selectively target hairs whilst leaving the surrounding skin undamaged. You are also able to adjust the settings on the laser so that it can be altered to suit your skin tone and hair colour. It is a much less harsh method of removing excess hair growth on the face and neck.

After suffering with severe digestive problems for many years, I decided to book a course of hydrotherapy treats at EE Medispa in Chelsea. Having never had this treatment I was quite nervous but the staff and my practitioner Victoria made the whole process very comfortable. I have now been seeing Victoria for regular sessions for about two months and I can honestly say it has changed my life. I have completely changed my diet and the process of detoxification has helped me eliminate everything that was causing me to feel so unwell for many years. I would highly recommend this service to anyone with digestive issues. I am now on my second course of treatments and continue to see great results. This is one of the best investments in my health I have ever made. Thank you so much Victoria! : )

The Zone Out treatment was fantastic, it relaxed my mind and body, clearing my head of all that “London” stress … Victoria, the Hydrotherapist was incredibly knowledgeable and informative; above all making me feel at ease …I can’t wait to come back again!

Jennifer Burton

Zone Out Colonic Hydrotherapy

I had Zone Out Colonic Hydrotherapy. I was immediately at ease with Victoria, she was both friendly and professional. I wasn't sure what to expect with this treatment but within a few minutes of it starting I was already in an extremely relaxed, almost meditative state. It was like being transported into a zone between asleep and awake where you are totally at calm - thoughts can enter your mind but you just let them float away. Afterwards I felt as though I had been asleep for a hours, I was relaxed but also rejuvenated. I would highly recommend trying this!

I had the Colonic; Victoria thoroughly explained every part of the procedure, which made for a relaxing experience. I can’t wait to come back again!

Victoria floats in, complete with bangles and maxiskirt, far from the overall-clad dominatrix I had envisaged. The consultation and treatment explanation are extensive but reassuring and by the time I am gowned up on the bed, I’d honestly trust her with my life. The process is much more civilised than you’d think. Within four sessions, my eyes are brighter, my skin is clearer and I have the energy of a five-year old on a sugar high. The difference is astounding.”

Victoria is incredibly nice about what must be one of the world’s least appealing jobs…I feel so slim, spritely and ready for a dance with John Travolta
