Throughout a woman’s life, hormones fluctuate which can cause hair growth that is unexpected. Hormonal conditions and changes account for numerous other problems in addition to unwanted hair. Its cause may be related to your genetic makeup, an underlying medical condition, Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS), pregnancy, menopause, puberty or some medications. In order to get the proper diagnosis and most effective treatment, you might want to visit an endocrinologist. Electrolysis is the best solution for unwanted hair.
During your consultation, I will conduct a thorough health history. That will help me determine the possible reason for the hair coming on so suddenly.
Does your family have a history of having unwanted hair?
What medications are you currently taking?
Do you have any ovarian or menstrual problems?
Are you diabetic?
Do you have any thyroid problems?
Some studies have shown that women may have menopause symptoms 10 years prior to reaching menopause. That could be the cause as well. Electrologists are unable to provide you with a diagnosis, however they are able to ask you questions that can help you with further discussions that you have with your doctor. No matter what the cause is, an electrologist can remove unwanted hair permanently.
Many people have unwanted hair. Your electrologist, in fact, has received many hours of electrolysis treatments. They have been in your situation and that is what makes them so compassionate about permanent hair removal. It seems there are more people who have unwanted hair than not.
An endocrinologist (who is a hormone specialist) might be able to help you. A woman should get evaluated by a specialist anytime she is overweight, having difficulties losing weight, have no or irregular periods, or hair in a pattern area (like you described). Those are classic symptoms of Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS).
An electrologist cannot give you a diagnosis, but can recognize when something isn’t normal. An electrologist can remove unwanted body and facial hair permanently if you do have PCOS.
How is Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) treated?
Treatment will depend on your symptoms. Your endocrinologist or primary physician can determine what the best course of action is to take in order to alleviate your specific symptoms. If your issue is weight, the most successful eating plan is to follow a diabetic healthy eating regimen. When you choose carbs, be certain they are complex carbs that won’t raise your blood sugar level. If any unwanted hair develops, electrolysis can permanently get rid of unwanted hair. Your physician might prescribe medication at times in order to address your medical issues.
I have both chin hair and acne. Can electrolysis help me?
Waxing and tweezing often exacerbates chin hair on a woman. Yanking out the hairs causes repeated irritation which may result in ingrown hairs from hair in the follicle breaking off or a larger diameter of hair growing out of the follicle. When a woman has acne on her chin but not on other parts of her face and tweezes hair from her chin, electrolysis treatments may offer relief from the acne. After they have stopped tweezing hair from their chin and the hair is properly treated by an electrologist, their skin will clear. Usually facial hair on a woman that is hormonally caused will grow in a pattern. It starts on the corners of one’s upper lip and on the chin.
What medications can cause hair growth?
There are many different medications that may cause hair loss or hair growth. Speak with your pharmacist about any medications you are taking and also the ways your medications may interact.
