What Causes Excess Facial Hair?

All women have hair on their bodies; however, it is typically light and fine. Various factors can cause some women to have excessive and unwanted hair growth, also known as hirsutism, such as:

  • Conditions that raise testosterone levels, such as polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) 
  • Those with a higher body mass index (BMI) 
  • Certain medications may trigger facial hair growth in women 
  • Genetics 

If you experience any sudden hair growth in unusual areas, you should speak to your GP or a pharmacist so any potential underlying conditions can be ruled out.

Symptoms of Excess Facial Hair

Excess facial hair is more common in females, causing darker hair growth, which appears in the following areas:

  • Upper lip
  • Chest
  • Chin
  • Back
  • Abdomen

 Although these symptoms can cause some distress, they are easily preventable with various treatment options.  

Best Facial Hair Removal Treatment Options

There are many effective treatment options to prevent or stop excess hair growth; some of these treatment options include:


Regular shaving is a simple and cost-effective way of managing excess hair growth; however, it can cause irritation and stubble. 


Waxing removes more hair in one go compared to shaving and removes it from the root, delaying regrowth for longer. However, some can find waxing painful, and it may cause temporary skin irritation.


Similar to waxing, epilation removes hair from the root for longer-lasting results. It uses an epilator device to pluck hairs as you glide it over your skin. 


Bleaching lightens the colour of your hair, which can delay the time between shaving or waxing.


Electrolysis involves inserting a thin needle into hair follicles and applying an electrical charge to destroy the hair root. However, this method can be painful but offers long-lasting results.

Laser Treatments

Laser hair removal targets excess hair; however, it often requires several sessions to achieve the best results, and there can be risks such as scarring and skin discolouration.

The Contraceptive Pill

For premenopausal women, the contraceptive pill can help control excessive facial hair by addressing any hormone imbalances, leading to reduced hair growth.

Facial Hair Removal Creams 

Facial hair removal creams are a convenient and effective treatment option, as most can be bought online or over the counter for temporary hair removal. Alternatively, you can purchase prescription products, like Vaniqa, online from our UK-registered pharmacy.

Vaniqa Facial Hair Removal Cream

Vaniqa is a medication known as a hair growth inhibitor that helps slow down unwanted facial hair growth in women over 18. Vaniqa’s active ingredient, eflornithine, blocks the natural chemicals needed for hair growth, effectively reducing hair growth in the treated area in as little as 8 weeks.

Facial Hair Removal Cream FAQs

Female facial hair removal creams are typically designed to be gentle on the skin. However, choosing a cream specifically formulated for sensitivity is important if you have sensitive skin. Always do a patch test on a small area first with the product to check for potential reactions.

Facial hair removal creams remove hair at the surface level, meaning the hair will eventually regrow. However, for long-term hair removal results, you can consider other methods, such as laser hair removal.

While lifestyle changes alone may not completely stop excess facial hair growth, maintaining a healthy weight and balanced diet can help regulate hormones, which can reduce hair growth.

Hair removal creams typically don’t affect the tone of your skin. However, misuse or leaving the cream on for too long can cause skin irritation or discolouration. You should always use the cream as directed and perform a patch test if you’re using it for the first time.

Unwanted facial hair affects 5-10% of all women and is typically more common based on genetics or when hormones aren’t balanced, such as during menopause. 

Although it’s not hereditary, the underlying condition that might be causing it could be. If you’re unsure what’s causing unwanted facial hair, you should speak to a doctor or pharmacist.

It is great to have somewhere local that does blood testing. The staff are lovely, helpful and experienced. They fit me in last minute. There is never a wait and the results back within a day or two.
After refusal of doctors appointment same old same old ring back etc. I was invited at 5.25 to see doctor I drove over immediately. Everything fully explained and checked over I was leaving by 6pm with penicillin for strep throat. Had I followed my doctors receptionist I would probably have suffered longer and increased the chances of a worse infection.I Great efficient service.
