If you’re women, you most likely do not wish to have a moustache. However, let’s face it, many women have unwanted facial hair that grows between their upper lip and nose. In most cases, it can become a constant battle between you and that hair to stay away and never come back again.
Growing facial hair varies greatly from person to person. Even men grow facial hair at different proportions and rates. The same is true for women. All women have facial and body hair, but if it is excessive on a woman’s body or face it is called hirsutism.
Hirsutism is unwanted or excessive hair. It varies from the typical “peach fuzz” hair on a woman in that its texture is very different. Hirsutism hair is usually very coarse and dark. It also is located in places that are typically seen in men, such as your face and lower abdomen. It affects between 5 and 10 percent of women and tends to run in families. In addition, your ethnicity plays a role in your likelihood of having Hirsutism as well. Mediterranean, South Asian and Middle Eastern women are more likely to develop this condition as well.
