Electrolysis/Laser Progression

Currently, there is no cure to hirsutism, but there are numerous ways to treat it.

Hirsutism is hard to treat because it is often a genetic problem. Even though it has been determined that an increase in androgen activity in the blood could be a promising cause to idiopathic hirsutism, it is still hard to pin point without more research.

On this page, I detail some of my progression with various hair removal methods. The most important Electrolysis and Laser Hair Removal, are the first ones listed.
