How is Hirsutism diagnosed?

Your doctor will examine your skin and may prescribe you certain tests to determine the underlying causes of hirsutism. Most of these tests are related to hormones and usually done on fixed days of menstrual cycle. Ultrasonography of pelvic areas and whole abdomen is required to look for PCOS and CAH

What are the treatment options for Hirsutism?

Following treatment options are available for hirsutism:

  • Medical treatment: Medical treatment targets to resolve the underlying medical condition that lead to excessive hair growth. Your prescription may include medications like, Oral contraceptive pills and androgen blockers.
  • Laser hair removal: Laser hair reduction is a safe, effective, fast and convenient option for hair removal. It promises long term results and is suitable for large and small areas including sensitive areas like ears, nose, nipples as well as the bikini area.

At Dr.Kothiwala’s SkinEva Clinic, Laser hair reduction is done using diode technology with LUMENIS LIGHT SHEER DESIRE. This is the best and most advanced technology in hair reduction and has been clinically proven safe and effective and is one of the best ways to achieve permanent hair reduction. The laser effects actively growing hair. Since hair growth has different phases, LHR requires multiple treatments for desired results.
The laser acts on the follicles which are in the growing phase. Since some follicles may enter the growth cycle after the treatment, multiple sessions are required for optimum results. Usually, 6 sessions are required, but some people require more.
After completion of all recommended sessions, some hair may regrow. Maintenance (2-3 sessions in a year) sessions may be required in the future. Results may vary with the individual depending on skin colour, hair colour, hair density, hormonal changes in the body and any medication taken for the same.
There is no down time after LHR, you can resume normal activities immediately following your session.

  • Epilation: This is done by electric machines which grasp multiple hair simultaneously.

Other temporary methods to remove excess or unwanted hair are waxing, threading, razor or hair removal creams but these are temporary and can be painful.
