Causes of Excessive Facial Hair in Women

Excessive facial hair in women can be a source of embarrassment for a woman of any age. We are sensitive to this and have treated hundreds of women who desire permanent hair removal.

Genetics plays a significant role in almost everything related to our bodies, including facial hair growth. If you have a close family member with a lot of facial hair or have a cultural background that tends to have more than the average amount of facial hair, then you are also likely to have it.

Adrenal Gland

Adrenal gland disorders can also contribute to excessive facial hair.  Adrenal glands produce hormones, so if there is a problem with these glands, then it could affect your hormones and thus contribute to excessive facial hair.
