Women’s Facial Hair

All women have facial hair. However, when it becomes excessive, course, and/or thick, it can be difficult to manage and cause issues with self-confidence. One solution to this problem is laser hair removal.

We are continuing our series of articles discussing some of the most common causes of excess facial hair in women. Our previous article discussed how genetics and hormones can cause an increase in facial hair growth. We also touched on how issues with the adrenal glands and polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) are also culprits.  Today, we will look at two more reasons why women can experience excess facial hair.


Certain medications, supplements, and anabolic steroids can cause an increase in facial hair growth. If you need to take a medicine that causes excess facial hair for a long period of time, then hair removal laser treatment may be an option to consider.

Prior Shaving

If you ever made it a habit to shave your facial hair with a razor, it can cause your facial hair to grow back thicker.
