Excessive Hair. We probably spend more time on our hair than any other single feature of the body. We are always cutting it, or shaving, curling, brushing, and cleaning it. May of us have too? Little hair, others too much in the wrong place.
Excessive hair growth on the face is particularly troublesome to women. Probably some this we cannot always be sure. Tumors arising in the ovaries, adrenal glands and other endocrine organs have sometimes contributed to this condition. But in most cases there is no specific cause for excessive growth of hair.
Excessive Hair Treatment:
if there seems to be some underlying endocrine disturbance, this should be corrected. Excessive hair on the face can be removed by electrolysis, but this is a tedious and somewhat expensive process. There are certain chemicals that may be tried, although these often cause some skin irritation.
If the hairs are very fine, apply some hydrogen peroxide solution. This may bleach the hairs so they are not as readily seen. Probably the simplest method is to shave the unwanted hair off as often as necessary, perhaps once or twice a week. This is least expensive and often makes the best appearance.
