Hair Removal: The best and easiest way to remove unwanted chin hair is plucking or tweezing. If there are only a couple of hairs on the chin it may be best to get rid of them with a pair of tweezers. This method might be slightly painful but gives you the desired results immediately. Some people even use hair removal creams to eliminate chin hair. ...Read more

While hair follicles/hair growth do respond to both local blood flow & hormones in different ways in different parts of the body, scientific understanding of how these factors quantitatively influence hair follicle response remain way beyond current medical understanding with any clarity.

This: This condition is called "hirsutism". Many women face this problem due to the hormonal imbalance. If your condition is only restricted to the face, laser therapy is viable option to provide a long lasting result. I would recommend go to an experienced dermatologist who is a laser specialist in your area. Since this can be considered as a cosmetic treatment your insurance will not cover for the treatment. ...Read more

Shaving hair: NO, shaving does not "cause" hair growth. The old wives tale that shaving hastens hair growth in adolescence APPEARS to be true because adolescents are at the age when hair growth begins! Also, when you shave hair it becomes prickly, and more noticeable to the touch. The hair follicle beneath the skin does not know whether the hair above it has been cut long, short or completely shaved. ...Read more

Hirsutism + alopecia: Hyperandrogenism may be leading to what sounds like hirsutism (http://www. Mayoclinic. Org/diseases-conditions/hirsutism/basics/definition/con-20028919) & male pattern baldness (yes, I know you're female: http://goo. Gl/RrYj7U).

Lipoma removed 2 days ago, section of head still numb not near incision. Will numb go away? If not will it hurt my hair growth in the numb area?
Scalp numbness: Skin nerves can be indirectly or directly affected by surgery. Depending on the location of the surgery (especially along the back of the head near the neck), scalp nervses can become temporarily or permanently numb. It can take some months for sensation to return too. Nerve sensation to the scalp would not be related to hair loss. ...Read more
I heard there's hormonal pills for hirsutism.. excessive hair growth, I'm black and I was wondering do these pills stop hair growth on head as well?
No: No, they work on the areas where the hair follicle is sensitive to (male) hormones by inhibiting the effect of testosterone which accelerates growth. In the case of the head (scalp) hair the excessive testosterone effect leads to hair falling (androgenetic alopecia) and this can be mitigated by the anti hirsutism pills. Thus these pills would slow head hair falling, not slow hair growth on head. ...Read more
Alopecia: It seems like you might have alopecia areata which is a disorder where the immune system destroys the hairs. It can often be successfully treated by your dermatologist.
