Laser Hair Removal for PCOS

Laser hair removal can be effective for women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) who experience unwanted hair growth, a condition known as hirsutism. It can be a viable option to manage and reduce unwanted hair growth. It offers a longer-lasting solution than temporary hair removal methods like shaving, waxing, or threading.

Understanding PCOS and Excessive Hair Growth

Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) is a medical condition caused by hormonal imbalances in women. A blood test at your Doctors can determine if you have PCOS. While severe cysts are not usually removed, hormone therapy may be recommended to balance hormones. PCOS leads to excess androgen, “male” hormones that cause physical signs like excessive facial or body hair. Although hormone replacement therapy can impact future hair growth, it may not affect existing excessive hair. Laser hair removal is unequivocally the most effective solution to manage and reduce unwanted hair growth.

The Impact of PCOS: Common Symptoms

PCOS can have various symptoms, including irregular or absent periods, reduced fertility, excessive hair growth, acne, weight gain, and thinning head hair. The presence of excessive hair can significantly affect a woman’s confidence and self-esteem. As a laser clinic, we understand that we cannot address the root cause of PCOS, but we can help manage its unpleasant symptoms. Alleviating these symptoms can boost your confidence and empower you to cope with the condition more effectively.

Dealing with Excessive Hair Growth

Excessive hair growth (hirsutism) can cause discomfort and side effects such as scarring, pigmentation, acne, ingrown hairs, and uneven skin tone. Daily hair removal techniques like plucking, shaving, waxing, or threading can contribute to these issues. To prevent further complications, prompt action is necessary. Laser hair removal is recommended to stop the progression of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH), especially common in individuals with Asian and Black heritage. We advise keeping the face protected from the sun and wearing factor 50 sun cream daily to minimise pigmentation risks.

Opting for Laser Hair Removal

Booking a free consultation with our specialists is the best way to explore suitable options for managing excessive hair growth, whether through laser hair removal or electrolysis for sparser hairs. During the consultation, we will discuss the recommended frequency of treatments and potential solutions to address pigmentation and scarring resulting from standard hair removal techniques.

Understanding the Benefits of Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal offers a permanent solution for excessive hair growth by directly targeting hair follicles and inhibiting further hair production. After each session, most of the hair falls out, providing relief for clients accustomed to daily shaving or plucking routines. The constant attack on the hair every 4 weeks reduces hair density and thickness, resulting in less noticeable regrowth. With a series of treatments, excessive hair can become permanently reduced or eliminated. However, clients with PCOS or hormonal imbalances may require ongoing maintenance, as the frequency of regrowth is unpredictable and depends on individual hormone fluctuations.

Tailored Laser Hair Removal Treatments

Our laser hair removal treatments are personalised to meet your specific needs. Most clients begin with a course of 8 sessions and are reassessed to determine the number and frequency of additional treatments required for optimal results. We understand that each client’s experience with PCOS may vary, and we strive to provide customised solutions for every individual.

PCOS Laser Hair Removal FAQs

Laser hair removal or electrolysis?

Both are effective hair removal methods, but they work slightly differently. Electrolysis targets individual hair follicles with a small electric current, making it more time-consuming and potentially more painful than laser hair removal. Laser hair removal uses targeted light energy to heat and destroy the hair follicle, making it quicker and less painful.

Both work on all skin types at Pulse Light Clinic. If you can count the hairs you have and they are medium or coarse in thickness, electrolysis is usually the better option. While most areas work better with lasers, for bigger areas, high-density lasers are a more effective and cost-effective choice.

Overall, electrolysis and laser have pros and cons, so it's important to discuss your options with a professional before deciding which method is best for you. Laser is generally better suited for larger areas of unwanted hair, while electrolysis may be better for smaller or more stubborn hairs. Please consult our experts to determine the best action for your unique needs.

How many sessions of laser hair removal?

The number of sessions needed for laser hair removal varies depending on the individual's hair type, skin tone, and desired level of hair reduction. Generally, it is recommended to have 6-8 sessions spaced out every 4-6 weeks for optimal results. However, some people may require more or fewer sessions to achieve their desired outcome. Additionally, factors such as hormonal imbalances or certain medical conditions like polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) can also affect the number of sessions needed.

At your free consultation, our experienced practitioners will assess your hair and type and growth, provide personalised guidance and address any specific concerns you may have. It is also important to note that laser hair removal is not a one-time solution and may require occasional touch-up sessions.

Do I need more sessions of laser hair removal if I have PCOS?

PCOS, or polycystic ovary syndrome, can often cause excessive hair growth in unwanted areas. Laser hair removal can effectively manage this condition, but it may require more sessions than usual. This is because the hormonal imbalances caused by PCOS can make the hair follicles more resistant to laser treatment.

It's essential to consult with our technicians, who have experience treating clients with PCOS, to determine the correct number of sessions for you. Combining laser hair removal with other treatments recommended by your doctor may also be helpful to manage your symptoms and promote long-term results.

In addition, maintaining a healthy lifestyle and managing hormone levels through medication or natural methods can also help improve the effectiveness of laser hair removal for PCOS. Our team is dedicated to providing personalised care and support throughout the process, so don't hesitate to reach out with any questions or concerns.

Everyone's experience with PCOS and laser hair removal will be unique. With patience and a comprehensive treatment plan, we can work towards achieving your desired results and improving your quality of life. Let us assist you on your journey towards managing this condition and feeling confident in your skin again.

Does hair grow back thicker after laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal does not make hair grow back thicker. It can reduce hair growth over time. Laser hair removal targets the melanin (pigment) in the hair follicles, damaging them to inhibit future growth. Over multiple sessions, this damage reduces the thickness and density of hair in the treated area.

Some people may notice finer or lighter hairs growing back after their treatment. This is because laser hair removal also destroys new hairs that were previously dormant in the follicle.

It's important to note that results may vary for each individual, and multiple sessions may be needed to achieve the desired hair reduction. Certain factors like hormone levels and genetics can also affect hair growth.

Does PCOS cause chin hair?

Yes, PCOS (polycystic ovary syndrome) can cause excessive hair growth on the chin and other parts of the face. This is due to hormonal imbalances that are common in individuals with PCOS. These imbalances can lead to increased production of androgens, male hormones that can stimulate hair growth. As a result, many people with PCOS experience excess facial hair, including chin hair.

Can PCOS facial hair be reversed?

While there is no cure for PCOS, the excess facial hair caused by the condition can be managed and reduced through various treatments. Laser hair removal, which targets and destroys hair follicles, is a popular option for managing excess facial hair in individuals with PCOS. Healthcare professionals may also prescribe medications such as birth control pills or anti-androgens to help regulate hormone levels and decrease excessive hair growth. With proper management, it is possible to reduce and even reverse the effects of PCOS facial hair. Our team understands the challenges faced by those with PCOS, and we are committed to helping you achieve smoother, more confident skin.

Can PCOS facial hair go away?

While laser hair removal can significantly reduce facial hair growth for individuals with PCOS, it may not eliminate it. Some may experience complete hair removal, while others may see a significant reduction in hair growth. Regular maintenance sessions may be necessary to maintain the desired results. Our team will work closely with you to determine the best treatment plan for your needs and concerns.

How to stop facial hair growth due to PCOS?

If you are struggling with excess facial hair due to PCOS, there are several treatment options available. One of the most effective methods is laser hair removal, which targets and destroys hair follicles to prevent future growth. This can be a long-term solution for managing facial hair in individuals with PCOS.

Is dermaplaning bad for PCOS?

Dermaplaning can be a safe and effective method for dealing with facial hair in individuals with PCOS. However, consulting with your therapist or physician before undergoing treatments is essential. They will be able to assess your situation and determine if dermaplaning is the right choice for you. Other options, such as laser hair removal or medication, may also be recommended depending on the severity of your condition. Our team is dedicated to providing personalised care and finding the best solutions for our clients with PCOS.

Do you offer discounts for those with PCOS?

Our team understands the unique challenges that PCOS presents, and we want to make sure that our services are accessible to those who need them. If you need additional sessions beyond standard packages, then yes, we can. Please speak to your therapist or reception—a minimum spend applies.
