What is PCOS?
Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) is a common condition that affects how women’s ovaries function. It’s reported that one in every 10 women have PCOS, whilst many women remain undiagnosed. The condition causes a hormonal imbalance which comes as a result from the ovaries creating excess hormones. There are three main features of PCOS which are: irregular periods, polycystic ovaries and excess androgen.

Why is Laser Hair Removal a good option for PCOS?
Laser hair removal for PCOS is an effective way to reduce the appearance of unwanted hair in a number of areas on the body. Using the highest quality laser equipment our qualified practitioners will work with you to provide a course of treatments designed to target the areas of hair growth you are unhappy with. For women with PCOS it can be uncertain to determine how your body will react to treatment, and whilst hair removal might not be permanent it will certainly reduce hair growth and thin the hair. It’s an effective approach to targeting hair removal, without the need for regular shaving and waxing. Between treatments you will also notice that you hair growth will begin to slow down. We recommend around a course of 6-8 treatments to help reduce the symptoms of hair growth and in some cases you may need more. All of this will be discussed with you throughout the whole process.
