What is PCOS?
Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), also known as polycystic ovarian disease, is a condition that affects up to 10% of females of reproductive age worldwide. Women who suffer from PCOS have irregular hormone production.
This means their ovaries produce high levels of the male hormone, testosterone, which causes hirsutism excessive hair growth and other symptoms such as irregular periods (menstrual cycle), infertility, weight gain and numerous other health problems.
PCOS is treatable, but it cannot be cured.
We’re going to share our experiences of treating hundreds of women suffering from PCOS with laser and how it has changed their lives.
When we meet women suffering from polycystic ovarian syndrome, they are normally very stressed and emotionally disturbed as a result of the condition. In some cases, the excessive hair growth on their face is so bad that it looks like a man's beard, often with a five o'clock shadow.
Most of our PCOS clients have to tweeze every day just to remove the unwanted hair, and they often end up scarring their skin. From my experience, the scarring does not bother them as much as the unsightly hair.
For example, one of our clients used to hide her neck with a scarf, even in the summer months, because she was so embarrassed about the unwanted hair on her neck.
After undergoing 3 laser hair removal sessions, she returned for a fourth session and was elated because her hair growth had slowed down and the dark patches around her chin had disappeared. This is just one of our many PCOS Laser Hair Removal success stories.
She now appears and feels like a completely different person who no longer hides her neck with a scarf! Most PCOS sufferers who first undergo laser hair removal will require 6 to 12 sessions with regular top-ups to keep the hair growth under control.
It's a lifetime commitment, but it's definitely preferable to threading and waxing every couple of days. For more information and to book a free consultation, contact your nearest CoLaz clinic today.
