Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) is a common hormonal imbalance amongst females. Up to 80% of our clients have symptoms of PCOS however only around 20% actually suffer from full on PCOS.
Typical symptoms include:
With all hormonal activity it is difficult to state how long someone will suffer from PCOS for. Many people will constantly have to deal with it from reproductive age onwards, whereas others can have rare occurrences of the symptoms.
In all cases, we can help to maintain the problems which those who are diagnosed with PCOS face. We spoke to our therapist Asha, who has been diagnosed with PCOS.
We asked her what her biggest worry was and she stated that "the fact that my periods are irregular makes me fear that I will never have the chance to have my own child."
She opened up about her hair removal experiences, constantly waxing her chin – although most people promised that when waxing was done the results should last up to 3 -4 weeks. She struggled to keep her hair at bay for 3 -4 days. Sometimes the stubble left behind became unbearable so she refused to tie her hair up.+
When she finally joined us and her colleagues recommended that she tried out laser she was amazed at the results. Within her first session her hair had slowed down to a 3 week wait until her hairs came back up. Now on her 4th treatment, her eyes welled up as she spoke about how she had never imagined being able to shave away hairs and not see them back again the next morning.
Yes treatments would have to be consistent and she will have to keep her laser topped up, but the idea of manageable hair growth is something that many females could never have dreamed of before.
