Hi, I am a 22 year old girl. I have thick hair growth on my cheeks, chin, and upper lip. I have irregular periods also. I can't go for laser treatment, as I already consulted a doctor.

There are a lot of hair loss remedies that can be used to remove unwanted facial hair. However, if the hair growth is accompanied with irregular periods, you may need to get yourself checked for polycystic ovarian syndrome. This is a condition which would eventually cause fatigue, painful and irregular menstruation, and unusual hair growth. Your doctor would diagnose you for hormonal imbalances and let you know what treatment you can get for your condition. Hormonal imbalances need to be treated medically, and once the condition is treated, your hair growth should lessen to a large extent.

There are some topical treatments that can be used to remove the excess hairs. You can use depilating creams, epilators, and even waxing for removal of the hair.These are some of the commonly used and inexpensive methods; however, these are not permanent, and you will need to visit a beautician on a regular basis. At-home kits are also available for the same, but it is not recommended if you are not comfortable with applying the cream or waxing strips yourself.

With the modern technology and advancements in cosmetic procedures, laser treatments for permanent hair removal have become extremely popular. Laser hair removal treatments are relatively painless and also more permanent in nature. Although these treatments are slightly expensive, they promise great results and the hair growth can be greatly reduced. Consider getting a second opinion for the same.

If you cannot remove the hair completely,you can bleach the hairs. Lemon juice is a natural bleaching agent, and you can apply this juice on your face every day till the hair begins to lighten. You can also use hydrogen peroxide to lighten the dark hair, but both hydrogen peroxide and lemon juice may sting, so it is best to avoid using them when you have cuts, scrapes or injuries present on your face.
