Male Body Hair Growth Patterns
I'm a 35 y/o male and for some time now I have noticed that my facial and body hair growth has significantly slow down. Is this part of aging?
Hair follicles are distributed throughout the skin with the exception of the palms, soles and glaborous skin of the genitalia. The hair follicle first forms in the eyebrows, upper lips, and chin at 9 weeks gestation. The bulk of the remaining follicles begin to develop at 4 to 5 months gestation in a ...Read more

Maybe but it depends: In answering your question, we have to agree (like former president clinton) to a definition of virility since that's more an adjective and less a medical term. Let's assume virility = masculinity, which one could say is distantly related to testosterone. Testosterone is converted into dihydrotestosterone (dht) which increases body hair (but decreases scalp hair). But don't forget genetics! ...Read more

Why do you ask?: If you're male, many women like a hairy guy and most other men are at least a little bit jealous. Even if you prefer smooth, you can shave for now (or get "manscaped") and wait until you're in a stable marriage and let her decide whether to opt for electrolysis / laser.

Not really.: Body hair growth is largely determined by genetics. Applying rogaine (minoxidil) miight help a little. Taking testosterone would might work but you would have severe side effect, acne, oily skin, deep voice, loss of breast mass, enlarged clitoris, etc. Assuming your are a female as indicated in your profile these would be intolerable. Most women don't want body hair! if you are male, ask again. ...Read more
Increased blood flow:
Injury healing usually causes an increase in blood flow to the injured area. This can lead to swelling in the area, as well as in the ankle, wrist, hand or foot beyond the area of injury.

How to stop the body hair growth permanently.plz help sir.my second question is- how can I reduce the hair density that I have.
Tough question: See doc.Men can decrease body hair by taking estrogen-like compounds, but enough to do that also causes feminization (ibreast enlargement).Not all of it goes away (women have body hair too).The best answer is to consider targeted laser hair removal which is permanent. There's waxing, electrolysis, depilatory creams,too. Just think in 50 years you may be sad because you don't have enough hair! ...Read more
