Most hair removal treatments cannot remove all types of  hair on the body. There are 2 main  types of hair found on the human body

Vellus is soft, fine and short hair and is usually found on the face of  women. Vellus hair provide some insulation required to maintain the temperature of  the body

Terminal hair is coarse, dark hair, similar to the hair on the head. It provides cushioning to the body and it is the type of hair most people want removed.

Rising levels of hormones in human body results in the transformation of  vellus hair into terminal hair. The number of  hair follicles per square cm varies from individual to individual.

Hirsute or excess hair growth is the result of  certain medical conditions like the polycystic ovary syndrome in women. Hormonal disorders also cause coarse terminal hair to grow on the face and other parts of the body
