Laser Hair Removal Treatments for PCOS: Reducing Hirsutism and Facial Hair with Polycystic Ovary Syndrome
What is Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS)
PCOS is a condition that affects many women, and one of the symptoms of this male-pattern hair growth disorder is excessive facial hair.
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 - without any surgery!
How Laser Hair Removal Can Help
Laser hair removal for PCOS clients has reduced facial hair and excessive hair growth on the face, neck, chest and back due to polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS).
The laser targets dark hairs by breaking up their structures. The lasers will penetrate deep enough into skin tissue without causing any burns or injury to the skin.
The laser is a permanent hair reduction method and works well with PCOS sufferers. The condition is commonly known as hirsutism and affects many women, even those not diagnosed with PCOS or any other hormonal disorder.
Why Is It Essential To Remove Excess Facial Hair?
It's essential to remove excess facial hair for aesthetic reasons as it can be an embarrassment and even a distraction. The condition is also embarrassing to those that suffer from hirsutism, especially in social settings like dating or work.
It's been shown by many studies that women with PCOS are constantly under the microscope because of their appearance, which may lead to low self-esteem and depression.
Hirsutism is not a life-threatening disorder, but it can cause many emotional and social problems for PCOS sufferers.

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.
PCOS sufferers need to consult their doctor before starting any treatments. This disorder can affect various aspects of the body, and it's advised not to start taking medication if there isn't an agreed diagnosis.
For most people with PCOS, the results have been excellent, 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.
