Excess facial hair
Posted on: 11/17/2006
I'm an 18-year-old male with excess facial hair. I even have to shave my upper face cheek all the way to where my eyes start. Basically I been excesively hairy all over my body since I was like 7. Could this be an internal medical problem. And if so, is there any way of decreasing the facial hair on my upper cheeks?
It would be a good idea to check with your doctor first, but then you can use laser hair removal, or electrolysis to remove facial hair -- look for practitioners in your area. Most will do a consult first, tell you how it works, and how much it will cost, and how many treatments it will take to remove the excess hair. Good luck!
