Hirsutism

Get rid of excessive hair 

Hirsutism is the medical term for excess, male pattern hair growth in women. The cause may be high levels of circulating male hormone (testosterone) or increased sensitivity of hair follicles to the male hormone present.

Some conditions associated with hirsutism include polycystic ovary syndrome, Cushing’s disease, tumors in the ovaries or adrenal glands and insulin resistance. Certain medications may also cause increased hair growth.

Management of hirsutism begins with blood work to check hormone levels. Any abnormal levels should be addressed by an endocrinologist (hormone specialist). Unwanted hair can then be permanently reduced using laser hair removal.

Learn more about hirsutism at the Mayo Clinic.
