Increased facial hair is because of excessive hormones, mostly because of a condition called pcod . But if it too much you also need to rule out other conditions like adrenal hyperplasia and some rare ovarian tumours as well. Consult your doctor and get a few tests like pelvic scan. Serum testosterone. 17 hydroxy progesterone . Dhea. If all ok it could be because of pcod. First thing u need to do is to loose weight. Once the hair growth becomes excessive it cannot be reversed. U have to go ahead with cosmetic treatment. But further increase can be prevented by appropriate hormonal medication.
