The growth of coarse, dark body hair in areas where fine hair is either minimal or absent is known as Hirsutism. This excess hair growth is due to an imbalance of hormones in both sexes, thus contributing to an increased level of female hormones in men, and similarly, an increased level of male hormones in women. This effective treatment aims to minimise and eventually eradicate hair growth in such areas. Parts of the body that prove most popular with excess hair removal are areas above the lip, on the chin, chest, abdomen, and back. Although Hirsutism has been found to affect more women than men, this treatment has been highly sought after by both.
