It’s thought that polycystic ovary syndrome affects around 1 in 5 women in the UK with many women having to live with excess facial or body hair. I see clients every day with PCOS and so I understand the difficulties and upset it can cause.
Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) has three main ‘features’:
- Irregular periods, which means regular ovulation does not take place
- Excess androgen, which are high levels of the male hormones in your body that cause physical signs such as excess facial or body hair
- Polycystic ovaries, which is when your ovaries become enlarged and contain many fluid-filled follicles that around the eggs (though these aren’t technically cysts)
Laser hair removal for PCOS
Laser hair removal for PCOS is an extremely liberating treatment for lots of women seeking to permanently reduce the amount of masculine body and facial hair.
Areas such as the face, neck, chest, and stomach are common treatment areas. Laser hair removal works well on thick, dark hair on the face or body.
Each treatment uses selected wavelengths of low energy light rapidly pulsed onto the skin to gently heat the hair follicles to cause terminal damage and prevent hair regrowth. It’s quick and virtually painless.
Most clients see a difference from the very first treatment, a full course of at least 6 treatments is recommended in order to see long-term change.
After your initial course of treatments most people require top up sessions to keep on top of the hair growth.
However, laser hair removal isn’t permanent and people with hormonal disorders normally require more regular top ups to keep the hair at bay. This is different for everybody but laser hair removal will definitely reduce the number of trips to the beauty salon.
