Hi Nonku, thank you for the question.

My suggestion is to be referred to an endocrinologist or a gynecologist so that a thorough medical examination can be done including blood work to check other possible causes for increased hair growth such as polycystic ovarian disease. Once all your hormonal levels have verified that they are normal one may consider permanent hair reduction using laser or IPL.
