Excessive Hair Growth (Hirsutism; Hypertrichosis)

Unwanted body and facial hair is referred to as "excess hair", and, for both men and women, this can be painful and difficult to deal with. Excessive hair (especially in women) might be a sign of a hormonal problem such as polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). Excess hair growth can sometimes also occur for no apparent reason; this is particularly typical in skin types from the Mediterranean, Middle East and South Asia. It’s also possible that it’s inherited.

Hirsutism is excessive growth of thick or dark body hair in women in locations that are more typical of male hair growth, such as the face (on the upper lip, chin or sideburn area), torso (around the nipples or on the chest, lower abdomen or back) and limbs (on the shoulders or inner thighs).

Hypertrichosis is an increase in the amount of hair anywhere on the body in either sex. The excess hair may grow all over the body or only in specific locations. The hair may be fine, light-colored and downlike, or thick, dark and long. This disorder may be present at birth or develop later.

Hair Loss & Regrowth Treatments

Hair loss or hair thinning is a common concern. Generally speaking, it’s normal to lose 100-150 strands of hair a day. However, when hair thinning or hair loss becomes a problem, this is when we start to lose more than the normal amount of hair loss a day. The commonest causes for hair loss are alopecia areata, male pattern and female pattern hair loss.

A range of factors can affect hair growth, and these are hormonal changes, genetic background, medications, stress, diet and illnesses such as thyroid disorders and anaemia. Our skincare experts at our Sheffield-based clinic will perform a thorough examination of your hair follicles to determine the cause of your hair loss and a selection of medical treatments, including hair care treatments and prescribed medications will be discussed according to your condition and individual needs.

How Can I Reduce / Prevent Excess Hair?

There are a number of hair removal solutions that can be used at home, however, these offer only temporary results and can be painful, messy and time-consuming. Because it targets individual follicles and is administered over a series of treatments, laser hair removal is one of the most successful and long-lasting hair removal options. The treatment damages hair follicles and prevents regrowth by using brief pulses of light radiation. This method provides the most effective and long-lasting hair removal results and can be booked at our Sheffield-based skincare clinic.
