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.

I'm completely thrilled with the result. I look, I think, subtly better and completely natural. Not years younger, but fresher, brighter and more cheerful. As promised, my jawline is tighter, my cheeks firmer, my brows more elegantly arched and even my thinning upper lip looks fuller and more upturned. Within a couple of weeks of living with my new face, it felt completely mine.

The fantastic team at the King’s Road clinic put my slight apprehension at immediate ease. They were professional, knowledgeable and provided a seamless approach to my treatment (Volite HA Boost), checking that I was comfortable throughout. Twenty minutes later and pleasing results were already visible… I’m looking forward to seeing further improvements!

After having FemiLift, I don’t have the worrying sense of urgency to go to the toilet as much, I feel much more in control, this treatment has changed my life for the better. I am amazed how easy and comfortable the whole process has been.



I’m absolutely thrilled by the 3D SkinLift. Having two children took its toll leaving loose skin on my stomach that I couldn’t get rid of. Even from my first session with 3DSkinLift I could see noticeable difference and now after a full course I’m feeling like my old self again.
