Guidance for the management of hirsutism.
Curr Med Res Opin. 2005 Aug; 21(8):1227-34.CM

Abstract

Approximately 80% of women are affected by the presence of excessive hair growth in a 'male-like' pattern. Excessive facial hair in particular can be a source of distress to such women and can lead to psychological problems such as anxiety, depression and a reduced quality of life.Current cosmetic methods of hair removal include shaving, depilatories, waxing, plucking, laser, intense pulsed light (IPL) and electrolysis.A topical treatment cream such as eflornithine 11.5% can slow hair growth and thus reduce the frequency of the need for hair removal. This treatment can be used effectively in conjunction with hair removal methods.
