PCOS (Polycystic Ovary Syndrome) can have a dramatic effect on your hair growth. Wondering why? It changes your body’s natural hormone levels, which can typically lead to excessive hair growth. For many women, finding a solution to this one common side effect is nothing short of an absolute must, and laser hair removal for PCOS is one great option.
Fighting PCOS Hair Growth
PCOS can cause excessive hair growth in a number of areas, commonly including the face. Many studies have shown that women who experience unwanted hair growth as a result of PCOS also have higher rates of depression and commonly suffer from self esteem issues. You don’t have to feel that way! Laser hair removal is the perfect way to deal with the unwanted hair and help you feel like yourself again.
How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?
Laser hair removal utilises precise laser energy to safely target and destroy hair follicles. The laser energy is focused right at the follicle and is absorbed by the pigment inside the hair. This process damages the follicle, which means any future hair growth from that follicle is significantly reduced. The results are often of permanent hair reduction, and the number of treatments you’ll need depends on the size of the area you’d like to treat.
Typically PCOS patients dealing with unwanted facial hair will need 6 to 8 sessions to eliminate the problem. Hair growth occurs in cycles, so a series of treatments is needed to diminish hair growth.

Laser Hair Removal targets hair in the active growth phase, called the anagen stage. Laser energy is emitted from the device to target the hair follicle with controlled pulses of energy. Pigment in the hair absorbs the energy, and the hair follicle is safely destroyed.
Only 90% of the hair follicles will be int he active anagen phase at any given time, which is why we treat the area over a course of 6 or 8 sessions.

At The Clinic
Following your consultation and patch 24 hour prior, your skin will be prepped for treatment. This usually includes a thorough cleanse of the area, and shaving if required.
You will then be given protective eyewear to wear during treatment.
The laser device will be applied to the area, emitting laser energy into the skin. Often clients say this is a similar sensation to an elastic band being gently snapped against the skin.
The skin may feel slightly red and tender, however this will subside quickly. Your practitioner will apply a cooling gel to soothe and cool the skin.
