Facial hair and PCOS!

Hirsutism is referred to the presence of hair in male-like distribution (chin, upper lip, cheeks, neck, chest, shoulders etc.) in females. On the other hand, Hypertrichosis is referred to increase hairs on normal hair-bearing sites irrespective of gender.

Hirsute correlates with increased sensitivity or excess of androgens (testosterone and related hormones) in a body.

WHY it happens

Hirsutism mainly relates to hyperandrogenism and commonly associated with disorders of ovaries and adrenal glands such as:

  • Polycystic Ovarian Disease,
  • Acromegaly,
  • Congenital adrenal hyperplasia,
  • Cushing syndrome,
  • Insulin resistance,
  • Drugs, like steroids, contraceptive, methyldopa, Danazol, testosterone, and few others.
  • Extremely rarely adenoma or carcinoma of adrenal glands
  • Others

NOTE these symptoms

There are few signs which are suggestive of androgen excess such as:

  • Abnormal Menses
  • Frontal balding in females.
  • Weight gain
  • Clitoromegaly
  • Hoarseness of voice
  • Increase hairs on the upper lip, chin, and other body parts.
  • Pigmentation of Neck
  • Acne

How Laser works

Laser therapy works by selectively targeting hair melanin within the follicle. Laser beam generates local heat within follicle and subsequently damages it.

Why Lasers Only

Currently, no medicine is available for long-term hair reduction. Waxing, threading, shaving, plucking and other methods are used for short term relief but they may cause pain, rashes, folliculitis etc. Laser treatment has no downtime and is highly effective with minimal side effects and long-term hair reduction.

Note: Hirsutism is a common endocrinological disorder and fairly manageable. Consult your dermatologist who will take care of your excess hair and Acne problems.

  1. Hello! I am in the midst of making an application for a freshly qualified associate solicitor opening with CANDEY in London Could somebody let me know where exactly I can locate the careers webpage for this law practice? The job listing on the https://latestlawjobs.com does not give any links or extra information. I am primarily interested in newly-qualified lawyer jobs rather than training contracts. I qualified by sitting the New york city bar assessment and after that undertook the QLTS test so the training contract route does not apply to me. Thanks in advance!
