The Causes of Excessive Hair Growth


Have you ever wondered why you have more unwanted hair on your body than your friends or even your mother or sister? You probably envy their naturally smoother legs or arms, while you struggle with excessive hair growth almost on a daily basis.

There are many causes for excessive hair growth. Scientists have discovered the following to be the most common:

stress, whether it is emotional or physical
your genes

Some health conditions also contribute to hair growth, such as polycystic ovaries and thyroid conditions.

These causes are related to the activity of your adrenal gland, the part of your body that is primarily responsible for the release of hormones, particularly when you’re stressed out. Hormones play a huge part in hair growth, and you may find that you even experience more or less hair growth at certain times in your life, such as before menstruation or before/after pregnancy.

Another cause unrelated to your hormones is the frequency you tweeze, wax and sugar. Because these methods yank out the hair at the follicle, they may have some effect on growth.

If you don’t like your excessive hair growth, talk to us about laser hair removal! It’s a popular treatment that is way more efficient and cost-effective than other methods.
