PCOS: Standard wight reduction diet and exercise. Tx w/metformin may help restore normal menses and even fertility for many women. Other medication may be needed if testosterone level is too high. There is no way to fix the hair that's already grown, only to decrease it's spread to other skin areas.

Familial: In some instances facial hair growth in women is familial and not indicative of any abnormalities. In other cases excess hair is due to hormonal abnormalities from glandular diseases.. An endocrinologist would be the best type of doctor to consult in this matter.

Hirsutsm is common: Frequently after an exam and some lab tests (to rule out PCOS, or other hormone problems) women find out that their hair growth is not a disease. Sometimes losing weight can help. Your doctor can prescribe certain types of birth control pills that may help as well. A medicine called spironolactone is sometimes used for this also. Vaniqua is a cream used to reduce hair growing over the lip.

Some birth control pills are much better for this than others. Depends on the progesterone. Yasmin, Yaz, and similar products are the least like male hormones.
