PCOS Laser Hair Removal
Polycystic is defined as ‘multiple cysts.’ Polycystic Ovary Syndrome is a medical condition whereby women’s hormones are out of balance and cysts (benign masses) begin to grow on the ovaries.
Though PCOS does not directly have any severe medical effects and is sometimes overlooked because of this, there are long term health conditions which potentially can be caused by PCOS such as, diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease and cancer. For this reason, if you believe you may have PCOS, it is important to get yourself in to see a doctor so that the condition can be diagnosed and medical advice given.
Unfortunately, the cause of PCOS is not fully understood. Doctors believe that hormonal imbalances and genetics play a part, it is noted that it often runs in families. Another contributing factor is potentially the overproduction of the hormone androgen. It is a male sex hormone that is always produced in a women’s body, but the overproduction of it could be linked to PCOS.
Currently, there is no cure for PCOS and the treatment is the only symptom-based.
The most common symptoms of PCOS are:
- Irregular (or no) periods
- Reduced fertility
- Excessive hair growth
- Weight gain
- Thinning head hair
PCOS can badly affect a woman’s confidence, as all of these effects are directly at a contrast to what we as women generally believe to be sexy and feminine.
As a laser clinic, we cannot help with the root cause of PCOS but we can help those in need deal with some of the unpleasant symptoms. Any ease of symptoms, will bring a boost in confidence and allow you to deal with the condition to the best of your ability.
Excessive Hair Growth
Excessive hair growth can be very uncomfortable for women and despite the apparent ease of shaving or plucking, the sheer ongoing problem caused by PCOS can really bring you down. On top of the fact that it is time consuming, can end up being expensive and the hair problem is never actually going away.
Laser hair removal treatments are a permanent handling of excessive hair growth because they work to directly stop the hair follicles from producing any more hairs. That means that after a series of treatments, it is no longer a temporary solution or stop gap but instead the excessive hair will either be permanently gone or minimally permanently reduced.
Laser hair removal treatments are tailored to exactly what you need. The prices and treatment plans are based on the sizes of the areas to be treated. That way you can tailor a programme to exactly what areas are suffering due to the PCOS.
