Unwanted Hair Treatment

Many factors can contribute to the growth of unwanted hair:
  • Heredity
  • Physiological changes
  • Changes in endocrine system
  • Medications
  • Topical Influences
  • Stress

Heredity is a major cause of unwanted hair. Three factors go into whether you will inherit unwanted hair: race, nationality and family. If your mother and grandmother had facial hair your chances of having facial hair are greater than if they did not.

Women may experience the growth of unwanted hair during any of life's natural changes: puberty, pregnancy and menopause. These periods are most susceptible for the male hormones (androgens) to become unbalanced. If the male hormones become too strong unwanted hair may result.

Changes in the endocrine system also can cause the appearance of unwanted hair. Some diseases of the thyroid gland, ovaries, pituitary gland and adrenal gland are known to stimulate hair growth. If these diseases are present they must be treated by a physician for the electrolysis to be effective.

Medications may also produce unwanted hair. Ask your physician if any of the medications you are on could be causing your unwanted hair.

Topical influences such as casts, sunburn, etc. as well as prolonged tweezing and waxing may cause unwanted hair.
