Abstract

Excessive hair growth in women is common and due to a broad spectrum of causes. Management options comprise different pharmaceuticals, epilation methods, and aesthetic approaches. Because excessive hair growth in women may cause psychological and psychosocial problems, a holistic treatment approach, including support and emotional coping strategies, should be recommended. In this article, diagnostic procedures and treatment options for excessive hair growth in female patients are discussed.
