Laser Hair Removal Treatments for PCOS: Reducing Hirsutism and Facial Hair with Polycystic Ovary Syndrome
What is Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS)
PCOS is a hormonal disorder that impacts women, and one of the symptoms is male-pattern hair growth which can occur all over the body known as hirsutism.
Women with PCOS may experience hirsutism as their testosterone levels rise, leading to unwanted side effects such as acne, weight gain, irregular periods, mood changes and fatigue.
Laser treatments are an excellent way to reduce or eliminate excess hair on the face, neck, and chest area caused by PCOS.
The Laser is a permanent hair reduction method and works well with PCOS sufferers.

How Can Laser Hair Removal Help?
Laser hair removal is an excellent treatment for PCOS clients, which has led to excessive hair growth. Laser hair removal can help clients to reduced facial hair and excessive hair growth on all areas of the body, including neck, back, chest and legs.
As women with PCOS have thick hair, this becomes an excellent target for the laser beam. The Laser emits a light that targets the pigment in the hair called melanin. The light energy is then converted into heat, which damages hair follicles without causing any skin injury.
Clients who have undergone laser hair removal treatments to reduce hair that PCOS has caused see a gradual reduction in hair growth; hairs may become softer and more refined. Some clients have seen up to 70-90% permanent hair reduction.

What To Expect From The Procedure And How Often It Needs To Be Done Over Time.
When you book a consultation with your laser specialist, you will receive a tailored treatment plan for your needs.
The results have been excellent for most people with PCOS, but it’s worth bearing in mind that laser hair removal won’t work for everybody.
If you suffer from Polycystic Ovary Syndrome or PCOS, your hormones are out of balance, leading to excessive hair growth.
Laser removal treatments can help with reducing the number of hairs. Still, it won’t be a permanent fix since we know that this is a hormonal imbalance, and excess hair will continue to grow back in most cases unless hormone levels are corrected.
From experience, clients require several treatments and will require maintenance treatments as and when their hormones fluctuate.
