Unwanted hair growth in various areas of the body is a common problem that we see in our clinics at Advanced Dermatology of the Midlands. Unwanted hair growth can run in families. Though women tend to seek care for this problem more frequently, men can be affected by unwanted or excess hair growth as well. In women, some of the most common areas that are problematic are the upper lip and chin, and neck. The chest, especially the area around the nipples, legs, and bikini area are also spots where women often seek to rid themselves of unwanted hair follicles. In contrast, men are most often bothered by unwanted hair growth on the back and ears, as well as excessively thick hair and the eyebrows and region between the eyebrows known as the glabella—causing the problem frequently referred to as the monobrow or unibrow.
