Why does facial hair change at Menopause?
The story of unwanted facial hair is about the relationship between the levels of estrogen and testosterone. When estrogen levels are high, a woman's face has very fine, short and almost invisible down hairs. Growth of facial hair during menopause is typically caused by a decrease in estrogen and an increase in the ratio of testosterone to estrogen. This increase in facial hair is very bothersome and one of the frustrations to most women going through this hormonal change.
All of a sudden I started sprouting these coarse hairs on my chin. I am only 40 years old - what's wrong with me?
At your consultation, we will go through a thorough health history. This will help us figure out a possible reason why this hair came on suddenly. Among the questions will be:
As electrologists, we cannot diagnose, but we can ask you questions that will help you have further discussions with your physician. Regardless of the cause, we can permanently remove the unwanted hair.
I have always had a lot of facial hair. I thought I was the only one, but now I am beginning to wonder - are there others like me?
There are many of us with unwanted hair. In fact, most likely, your electrologist has spent many hours receiving electrolysis treatments. His/her compassion comes from walking in your shoes. I believe there are more of us with unwanted hair than without!
What medications cause hair growth?
Many medications can cause hair growth or hair loss. Talk with your pharmacist about each medication you are on and also how your medications interact.
Since I'm pregnant, why is the hair on my face and body growing out of control?
The answer is because of an increase in the production of various hormones such as estrogen and progesterone just to name a few.
I had electrolysis treatments when I was in my 20's. I'm in my thirties and finally pregnant, but suddenly notice new facial hair. Can I receive electrolysis treatments?
Yes, you can have electrolysis, but many electrologists require a letter from your health care provider authorizing treatment during pregnancy.
