Where is excessive hair most likely to grow?

Excess hair can appear on any part of the body in women but is particularly common on the:

  • Neck
  • Face
  • Chest – particularly between the breasts
  • Abdomen – generally in a vertical line running from your public hairline to your belly button
  • Thighs

The most efficient way of removing unwanted hair is through hair removal treatment.

What causes excessive hair growth?

Hirsutism, or excessive hair growth, is caused by an imbalance of hormones. In particular, it’s associated with an increase in male sex hormones called androgens. Sometimes it’s also caused by becoming super sensitive to androgens.

Hirsutism is also a common symptom of polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) in women.

Women of any age can experience hirsutism. In younger women, it’s a common experience in those with PCOS. However, it’s more common overall in those who’ve undergone the menopause.

What hair removal treatments are available?

Various hair removal treatments are available, including options to use at home and carried out at spas or beauty salons. Some common hair removals methods used include;

  • Waxing
  • Shaving
  • Epilating
  • Plucking

Do these methods work?

All these methods of hair removal work to a degree, but they take time and patience and in some cases, involve putting up with pain. Unfortunately, methods such as shaving don’t have a lasting effect and, for women particularly badly affected by excess hair, must be done repeatedly.


If you’re going to a spa or beauty salon, it all costs money, too and can be awkward and embarrassing.

Bleaching is also used by some women to try to make their hair seem less visible. Other women find that taking the contraceptive pill can help to curb the symptoms of hirsutism (although this treatment option is only available for women who are still having periods).

Vaniqa clinically proven

As far as the removal of facial hair goes, Vaniqa cream has been found to be a particularly effective hair removal treatment. It can be used in conjunction with existing methods and can help cut down on the frequency that you have to wax, shave, pluck or use an epilator.

What’s more, this FDA-approved cream has been clinically proven to help to decrease the rate of hair growth in eight weeks, which can make life with hirsutism a lot easier.

Vaniqa works by blocking the enzymes that are linked to hair growth. It can be applied twice a day before you use your usual moisturiser or apply makeup.
