Hi, I'm Amelia and I'm here to talk about what causes unwanted hair growth in women. We've all had that Aunt Fannie who has a beard, and she's like in her sixties...what really causes unwanted hair growth in women is hormones. So once a woman hits menopause, and thee amount of estrogen starts dropping in her body, she starts producing more hair, and actually her testosterone levels are dropping at the same rate. So she's actually just loosing all her hormones for the most part, and her bodies just going to start producing more hair. And, as women and girls, we notice this because as we get older, we always start getting a few little weird hairs in weird places that we consistently have to tweeze, and have that removed...so pretty much, what causes unwanted hair growth in women is hormones. Thee only way to get rid of it is to tweeze it, wax it, you can do laser or electrolysis. If you've got blond hair, the laser's not going to work. You'd might want to go with thee electrolysis, and you'll find that thee unwanted hair growth is going to end up in places like your chin area, your upper lip, sometimes on your neck or even underneath your your neck, here. Sometimes, even around your eyebrows. Your eyebrows may get a little bit thicker, but not thee eyebrow itself. It's going to be more kind of around here. So pretty much anywhere you don't want hair, is where it's going to grow.
