What is polycystic ovary syndrome and will laser hair removal help? – Ask the Expert

Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a female endocrine disorder that affects millions of women in the UK. Most women with PCOS are diagnosed during their 20’s and 30’s, however it can affect girls as young as 11.

PCOS is caused during dramatic and ongoing changes in a woman’s hormone balance. This can cause many negative side effects, such as:

  • Painful cysts on the ovaries
  • Irregular or heavy periods
  • Complications in trying to get pregnant
  • Heart disease
  • Sleep apnea
  • Excessive weight gain
  • Anxiety or depression
  • Excessive hair growth
  • Acne or oily skin

Excessive hair growth, one of the most distressing and visible symptoms of PCOS is caused by high levels of the male hormone, testosterone. This excessive hair growth can appear mainly on the face, the lower abdomen, back, buttocks and chest.

Effective treatments for excessive hair growth caused by PCOS:

Many women lose their confidence, due unwanted or excess hair caused by PCOS. At Skin Perfection, London we are in a great position to help you to regain your confidence once more with a highly-effective and clinically proven treatment to permanently reduce excessive hair growth, using medical-grade laser technology.

Laser hair removal utilizes specially selected laser light energy to penetrate the hair follicle and destroy the hair at the root. At Skin Perfection, we have been using the globally recognised Cynosure Elite+ and Apogee + class 4 award-winning lasers. These lasers are highly-effective on both lighter and darker skins, due to the multi-wavelength technology they offer. Their built-in cooling technology means that the treatment is comfortable and will not over-heat the skin.

Laser hair removal is a very effective method of permanent hair reduction for women battling hirsutism. At Skin Perfection, we would initially recommend a course of 6-8 treatments on the areas of concern and then carrying on with maintenance sessions every 3-4 months. The benefits of laser hair removal for women with polycystic ovary syndrome are significant as it keeps the excess hair growth under control and gets rid of annoying stubble, providing a smoother appearance on the face and body.

If you are suffering in silence with excessive hair growth due to PCOS, contact my team at Skin Perfection London in confidence today.
