Once the endocrinologist analyzes your symptoms and medical history, they will perform a physical examination and request a blood test to check your hormone levels, in addition to performing an ultrasound or computed tomography to identify the causes and look for the possible presence of tumors that are causing the androgen imbalance.
If there is no endocrine condition or underlying disease, the treatment will be of a cosmetic, dietary, and self-care nature, complemented with medications such as:
- Contraceptive pills.
- Hair growth retardation using topical creams.
- Laser hair removal: injures hair follicles to prevent hair from growing back.
- Electrolysis: electrical stimuli through a needle to disable the hair follicles.
