Facial Hair Removal Treatment (Women)
Murrays: Facial Hair Removal Treatment for Women
Excess facial hair for women can be embarrassing and can be the cause of distress. Excess hair is not usually a sign of anything serious but it can be because of hormonal problems. Murrays Chemist in Harrow offers a facial hair removal treatment available in our store on Kenton Road.
How much facial hair is excessive for women?
We all have similar amounts of hair on our face, including men and women. However, women’s hair is usually finer and lighter than men’s hair so it isn’t as visible.
When the hairs on a woman’s face are darker or thicker, they become more noticeable or looks like you have excess hair. Some women will experience beard-like hairs, particularly on the chin, along the jawline and sometimes above the upper lip.
Excess facial hair is more common if you have a Mediterranean or Asain background. It can also run in the family.
However, sometimes, excess hair growth is caused by a hormonal condition such as polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS).
What treatments are available for facial hair removal?
Women don’t want to have to shave their faces and this kind of hair removal often leads to irritated skin and in-growing hairs. So, there are other facial hair removal methods available:
- Laser hair removal kills the hair follicle using pulses of intense light. This can be an expensive treatment and the hairs sometimes eventually grow back.
- Waxing or threading pulls the hair out from the root. This is kinder to the skin than shaving but the hairs will grow back.
- Depilatory creams dissolve the visible hair on the surface but do not treat the follicle.
- Hair enzyme creams acts on the hair follicle stopping it from being able to grow new hairs.
The contraceptive pill is sometimes used to treat excess hair for women if the condition is hormonal. For obese women, losing weight is another option to reduce excess hair.
Vaniqa is a hair enzyme cream that will reduce the appearance of unwanted hairs and is available on prescription from Murrays Chemist in Harrow.
