Excess hair can be unpleasant and distressing and difficult to routinely remove. For those who have PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome) laser hair removal can offer a great and effective treatment for unwanted excess hair.

What is PCOS

Many women have PCOS, it is caused by a hormonal issue, and excessive hair growth is one of the main symptoms of this, and one that many women want to remove. PCOS affects every woman differently and it should be diagnosed and discussed with your GP. It has many different symptoms and can include:

  • The gaining of weight
  • Unwanted extra hair growth – normally on the face, chest or abdomen.
  • Oily skin
  • Acne
  • Periods that are irregular
  • Difficulty conceiving
  • Hair loss
  • Other later life health problems including type 2 diabetes and higher cholesterol.

It affects a woman’s ovaries and the hormones that control the release of eggs. Because there are higher levels of androgen hormones, it is this which causes the symptoms above including excessive hair growth.

Embarrassing Excessive Hair Growth

PCOS can cause excessive hair growth on the face and body and cause embarrassment and anxiety for some women. Many women turn to shaving or waxing to remove the hair, but this can make irritate the skin, and make it a daily reminder of the PCOS. Laser hair removal is a great option for women with PCOS as it can be a quick and effective treatment.
