You can stop your facial hair from growing by using laser hair removal and by eating certain foods such as rice bran, lentils, mung beans, barley, dried fruits, oats, peaches, garlic, flax seeds, sesame seeds and sunflower seeds.

The above foods help increase the estrogen hormone levels in your body and can reduce unwanted facial hair naturally.

Laser hair removal stops chin hair from growing and removes the chin hair by targeting melanin which means it works best if you have light skin an dark hair.

Anti androgenic medication such as spironolactone can also help to get rid of chin hair and stop the chin hair from growing.

The reason you're growing hair on your chin as a female is because you most likely have a condition called hirsutism.

The most common cause of hirsutism is polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) which is a condition affecting the ovaries that can also cause symptoms such as acne and irregular periods.

Hirsutism is linked to the hormones called androgens and it can occur if the level of the androgen hormones increase or if your body becomes more sensitive to the androgens.

You can reduce hirsutism naturally by losing weight if you're overweight and by taking vitamin E and Vitamin B6 supplements.

The vitamins that stop facial hair growth are vitamins E and vitamins B6.

Vitamin B6 helps to lower testosterone in women and inhibit the production of the prolactin hormone.

A dermatologist can treat hirsutism as dermatologists are highly trained to treat hirsutism.

If there is an underlying cause of the hirsutism then the doctor will start by focusing on treating the underlying condition first and then start the treatment for hirsutism.

The most common reason for having hirsutism but not PCOS is having been born with hair follicles that are more sensitive to androgens

Hirsutism most often means you have PCOS or polycystic ovary syndrome although you can have hirsutism without PCOS.

In women, androgens are produced by the ovaries or the adrenal glands.

Although some women with hirsutism don't have PCOS or any other cause that can be found.

Their hormone levels are normal, and so are their menstrual cycles.

These women may have been born with hair follicles that are more sensitive to androgens.

The endocrine disorder that causes hirsutism is polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS).

Low estrogen can cause hirsutism because estrogen helps your liver produce the protein that binds the testosterone and prevents it from affecting the hair follicles which is why women that go through menopause often will notice some increased facial hair.

Hirsutism is excessive terminal hair in androgen dependent areas of a woman's body.

There's no way to get rid of hirsutism although treating the underlying cause can help to get rid of the unwanted hair and prevent future growth of the hair but the hair with hirsutism may not fully go away.

Hirsutism cannot be reversed although treating the cause of hirsutism can help improve the symptoms.

Long term use of medication for hirsutism can also slow hair growth but it does not usually get rid of the existing hair on the body and face.

Laser hair removal and waxing can also reduce any unwanted hair from hirsutism.

It is okay to have hirsutism as it does not cause any physical complications or health issues but the underlying cause of hirsutism is a hormonal imbalance which can cause physical complications.

If you have irregular periods and hirsutism you may have polycystic ovary syndrome which can also inhibit fertility.

Some women that have hirsutism may also feel self conscious or low self esteem with the unwanted hair.

The ethnicity that has hirsutism is South Asian races, European races, Middle Eastern races and Mediterranean races which Hirsutism is most prevalent in.

Hirsutism usually affects Hispanic women that have polycystic ovarian cysts more than non Hispanic women but it can affect any ethnicity.

The most common cause of hirsutism is polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) which is a condition affecting the ovaries that can also cause symptoms such as acne and irregular periods.

Hirsutism is linked to the hormones called androgens and it can occur if the level of the androgen hormones increase or if your body becomes more sensitive to the androgens.

Foods you should avoid if you have hirsutism are sugary foods, pastas, white breads and refined foods.

You should also eat fewer red meats and eat more lean meats such as cold water fish, tofu, soy or beans for protein and use healthy oils for foods such as vegetable oil or olive oil.

The medications that cause hirsutism are androgens, glucocorticosteroids, progestins, estrogen antagonists (clomiphene, tamoxifen), minoxidil, cyclosporine, danazol, diazoxide, phenytoin, D-penicillamine, and interferon.

If hirsutism is left untreated it will not cause any health issues other than the hair growth but untreated hirsutism can be associated with psychological morbidity and considerable loss of self esteem.

Hirsutism is pretty rare and only affects 10 percent of women in the United States.

Hirsutism is the growth of excessive male pattern hair in women after puberty.

Hirsutism affects facial and body areas that are dependent on androgens, namely the mustache and beard, buttocks, thighs and pubic hair.

The root of hirsutism is polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) which is a condition affecting the ovaries that can also cause symptoms such as acne and irregular periods.

Hirsutism is linked to the hormones called androgens and it can occur if the level of the androgen hormones increase or if your body becomes more sensitive to the androgens.

Hirsutism is most often due to hyperproduction of androgens, of ovarian or adrenal origin.

Hyperandrogenism of tumor origin, which is very severe, must be distinguished from non-tumor hyperandrogenism, which is often minimal or moderate.

Hirsutism is a condition that causes excess hair that is most often noticeable around the mouth and chin.

When you have hirsutism, extra hair growth often arises from excess male hormones (androgens), primarily testosterone.

Self-care methods and effective treatment options are available for women who wish to treat hirsutism.

Estrogen-progestin contraceptive pills, rings, and patches lower the levels of androgens produced by the ovaries and adrenal glands.

They are usually the first choice for the treatment of hirsutism, and between 60 and 100 percent of females with hirsutism will notice improvement when taking these medications.

Treating the underlying cause of hirsutism can improve your symptoms.

Long-term medication may slow hair growth, but it usually will not get rid of existing hair on the face and body.

Some cosmetic techniques, laser hair removal and waxing, can reduce unwanted hair.

Being overweight causes your body to make more male hormones, which can make hirsutism worse.

In women, androgens are produced by the ovaries or the adrenal glands.

But some women with hirsutism don't have PCOS or any other cause that can be found.

Their hormone levels are normal, and so are their menstrual cycles.

These women may have been born with hair follicles that are more sensitive to androgens.
