In brief: Depends on where is

Excess hair growth can be due to genetics or abnormal hormones.
Waxing, shaving, plucking, and laser removal can result in removal of the excess hair. Hormone changes can help slow down or stop excess hair growth in certain areas. There are creams for the face that can slow down hair growth, birth control methods can help as well as thyroid hormones if that is a cause. Depends on underlying cause.
