Medical therapies to treat excessive hair growth


Oral contraceptives. Birth control pills or other hormonal contraceptives, which contain the hormones estrogen and progestin, treat excessive hair growth by inhibiting androgen production by your ovaries. Oral contraceptives are a common treatment for excessive hair growth in women who don't want to become pregnant.Anti-androgens. These types of drugs block androgens from attaching to their receptors in your body. The most commonly used anti-androgen for treating excessive hair growth is spironolactone (Aldactone).

Topical cream. One may use a cream specifically for excessive facial hair in women. It's applied directly to the affected area of the face and helps slow new hair growth but doesn't get rid of existing hair. It may take up to two months to work, and hair growth returns to pretreatment levels within eight weeks of discontinuing the medication. Side effects may include stinging, tingling or a skin rash.
