Causes of Thick Facial Hair Growth In Females

Male sex hormones (androgens) are present in females at significantly lower levels than it would be present in males. However any condition that increases the levels of androgens in females will likely contribute to terminal hair growth on parts of the body similar to males. Other causes of hirsutism are due to the increased sensitivity of hair follicles to androgens. The increased levels of androgens may also result in hair loss in both men and women.
