Mariam Musa came to us after being diagnosed with PCOS. One of her main symptoms was excess hair growth on her face, chest, and bikini. She would often find herself covering up her ingrown hairs and stubborn hair with makeup. She set out to find a treatment that would provide long-term results and we set a treatment plan for her where she has seen life-changing results. Ingrown hair removal will help with any ease of symptoms, will bring a boost in confidence, and allow you to deal with the condition to the best of your ability.
What treatment plan Pulse Light Clinic recommended?
As Mariam had a case of ingrown hairs along with excessive hair growth from PCOS we had to assess both these factors into her treatment plan. Due to her PCOS, we initially recommended 8 treatments with top-ups but we assessed this at her 6th treatment and could confirm that she would require more than the usual 8 treatments. The hair by the 6th treatment appeared much finer but due to the hormones hair was still growing back therefore a full course of 12 treatments with longer intervals would be required to ensure all hair follicles are targeted.
How do laser hair removal treatments work?
During laser hair removal, a laser emits a light that is absorbed by the pigment (melanin) in the hair. The light energy is converted to heat, which damages the tube-shaped sacs within the skin (hair follicles) that produce hairs. This damage inhibits or delays future hair growth to help with ingrown hair removal.
The pre and post-care for laser hair removal treatments can be found here.

Any more treatments required?
The upper body and those with PCOS are often more hormonal and would require extra treatments, in this case, an extra 4-6 treatments would be required with longer gaps than 6 weeks in between each treatment. This will vary from the client and would be assessed at your initial consultation and after 8 treatments to help with ingrown hair removal.
