Hirsutism is a condition that is prominently identified as a situation in which women display an excessive growth of coarse and pigmented hair growth, akin to that of a man’s. Although there may be several reasons for this, they all have roots seeped into some kind of hormonal imbalance or the other. The most common reason, is an excessive secretion of a male growth hormone, androgen in the female system. This hormone may produce several male characteristics in women, the most prominent one being the occurrence of visible rough hair growth.
In the modern technologically advanced world of today, with numerous scientific processes discovered almost each day, it would be evident that this condition would also be conquered easily. The good news is that actually this is true, and not just a remote fantasy. Only a proper understanding of this peculiar condition is very necessary to procure and promote treatment plans. And this would include a two-step program of first controlling excessive hair growth and then getting rid of it permanently.
The condition of excessive androgen secretion is scientifically known as Hyperandrogenism. Almost 99% of the cases of Hirsutism are because of this. Only rarely are some cases detected where the cause of Hirsutism is not Hyperandrogenism. The most common conditions identified for Hyperandrogenism are medically termed as Poly Cystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) and Idiopathic Hirsutism (IH). The basic difference between these two situations is the difference in the degree of Hyperandrogynemia that is, the difference in the levels of androgen hormone in the system. This difference leads to not only the variation in the degree of Hirsutism but also in internal symptoms like menstruation cycle and ovulation being adversely affected.
Some other androgen related reasons for Hirsutism may be hyperandrogenic-insulin resistant-acanthisis nigricans (HAIRAN) syndrome that affects about 3% women, 21-hydroxylase deficient non classic adrenal hyperplasia (NCAH) affecting about 2-8% patients and ovarian and adrenal androgen secreting neoplasms (ASN) affecting a very rare percentage of women.
In addition to this being, a situation that is physically abnormal, the psychological trauma attached because of its visibility is tremendous. The most detrimental fact is its effect on social interaction and popularity levels of such women, leading to deep-rooted emotional disturbances affecting the day-to-day life in all social situations. Thus, it becomes imperative to rectify this situation as soon as the diagnosis is in.
Any treatment of hormonal imbalance however can only deter further progression of hair growth, but it cannot actually reverse the damage already done. For permanent hair removal, Electrolysis or Electrology is the most advanced and permanent solution. Other forms of hair removal including laser technique are all non-permanent, leaving the patient continuously worried about the hair reappearance. Only Electrolysis is a permanent solution. In the process of Electrolysis, permanent chemical destruction of hair follicle is done by passing galvanic current (through DC battery) through sterile needles. The whole exercise is quite comfortable and can be utilized by almost anybody. This technique has been perfected over a period of over a century, and i now in vogue with a lot of consumers, and is producing phenomenal results.
