It's imperative to know what causes your unwanted hair, so that you can find out the proper and effective methods to treat it. The level of male hormone (androgen) in the blood normally plays an important role in the process of growing extra hair. Prescription oral medications that are known to affect the production of hair cells include drugs such as Spironolactone (Aldactone), Finasteride (Propecia/Proscar), Flutamide, Ketoconazole and Gonadotrophin. These oral drugs involve two components to reduce the growth of hair. Firstly, they decrease the amount of testosterone. Secondly, they block the effect of testosterone on the hair follicle.
Because hair growth changes gradually, treatments to alter its growth work slowly as well. Most can expect to see improvement within the first 3 to 4 months of oral treatment. After that, finer and softer hair will start to become more and more apparent.
Studies have shown that at least 60-percent of women report improvements on their face after taking oral medication to reduce hair growth. Oral medication can be combined with other hair removal treatments - such as laser hair treatments - for the best hair removal results.
