    TLDR Low-dose finasteride reduces excessive hair growth in teenage girls safely and affordably.
    This study found that intermittent low-dose finasteride administration effectively reduced hirsutism in adolescent girls with polycystic ovary syndrome or idiopathic hirsutism. The treatment was well-tolerated and had fewer side effects compared to conventional continuous administration. The study suggests that intermittent low-dose finasteride administration may be a cost-effective and safe treatment option for hirsutism in adolescent girls.
