Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS)

Working with Women with PCOS

“At Accurate Lasers we work with many women who, as a result of Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS), experience a noticeable increase in body hair growth. It is often the case that while consulting with clients who complain of excessive hair growth that we uncover other signs and symptoms that may point to this condition and advise that they visit their GP to get a diagnosis and seek treatment. While laser hair removal is not a cure for PCOS, it is effective in helping to eliminate one of the distressing and unsightly side effects of PCOS.” Kiran Singh

“If you wish to know more about PCOS then please visit us for a consultation or we can email you an information sheet. Here are just a few responses to some frequently asked questions we receive relating to this condition.

Hair Removal for Women with PCOS

Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) is a condition that affects millions of women in the UK. If you are one of those who have been diagnosed with PCOS then Accurate Laser are here to help.

During her lifetime the average woman will spend over £10,000 on hair removal products and those with Polycystic Ovary Syndrome will spend much, much more. The good news is we have an effective, long-term solution of banishing unwanted hair.

What is Polycystic Ovary Syndrome?

PCOS is a condition experienced by millions of women in the UK where excessive androgens (hormones associated with males) are present. PCOS is characterized by small cysts formed around the ovaries that are detected by an Ultrasound examination and the condition usually features several symptoms including:

  • Abnormal or irregular periods
  • Weight gain
  • Hair loss
  • Acne, oily skin, dandruff
  • Excessive facial and body hair (Hirsutism)

These symptoms may develop at any time but the most distressing ones you’ll face are the cosmetic changes. In particular an increased growth of darker, coarser hair can occur on the face, upper lip, chin, chest, thighs, abdomen, legs and arms. This of course leads to severe self-consciousness, which affects one’s body image.

The time, money and energy spent on waxing, tweezing, shaving and buying numerous creams is all too consuming. Unfortunately resorting to these measures is not just a short-term option, but has been proven to be ineffective as hair has a tendency to come back thicker than ever.

If this condition is taking its toll on your self-esteem then you don’t have to suffer. Did you know that a negative body image leads to depression, isolation and eventually more serious psychological problems? However, thankfully the repercussions into your personal and professional life can be remedied.

Why Is Accurate Laser Right For You?

Our team of trained laser practitioners employ only the most professional techniques to target the affected areas. In the days and weeks following your treatment you will begin to notice fewer and finer hairs.

You’ll find that our team is passionate about your success and Accurate Laser has often been labeled as being a big “family”. We care about your results and want you to step out with the body you deserve.

How Does Accurate Laser’s Treatment Work?

The FDA approved Laser precisely targets the area and beams it with strong pulses of energy that blast the follicles of hair below the skin’s surface. Since we only use a medical-grade laser and no chemicals or surgery, you can be assured that only the follicles are destroyed at the very root without damaging your skin or surrounding cells.
At most hair removal clinics the clients experience slight discomfort but at Accurate Laser our treatment is 100% painless.  As soon as we emit the laser, the onboard cryogen canisters release a cooling spray to the site. This guarantees a pain free experience each and every time. It is so safe in fact that the FDA has approved it as suitable for all skin types with no long-term side effects. So while other clinics are reluctant to treat darker and tanned clients, we welcome every type of skin color.

Our laser successfully removes hair from:

  • Face: Upper lip, jawline, chin, sideburns, ears, neck, nose.
  • Torso: Chest, stomach, back and shoulders.
  • Limbs: Arms, underarms, legs and bikini line.
What Happens During My Free Consultation?

When you book in for a no obligation consultation from our highly trained staff, you will be offered a complete programme  of personal care. There is no need to feel nervous or embarrassed, as our professional female technicians will answer your questions and guide you every step of the way. We will examine your skin, hair type and ask you some questions related to your PCOS. Then we carry out a patch test, which involves a few shots of the laser on a small area of skin to determine the best settings for you.

Once we have completed our assessment, you will be given feedback and told about the options available. We invite you to step into your new hair free body as soon as you want, but come over and decide for yourself.

Optimum Results With Accurate Laser

In most cases you will see good results within 5-6 treatments with an overall 80-90% hair reduction rate. We target the hair in its active growth stage. This means that the follicles can be destroyed from the bud to increase the laser’s effectiveness. Depending on your hair type usually a course of treatment is needed to permanently affect follicles so hair production is disrupted. When your hairs are freshly shaved before treatment, the laser has even more access to destroy the roots.

Immediately after treatment there will be some single raised areas where the laser has ‘caught’ the follicle. This means a slight redness that disappears shortly afterwards.

It takes roughly two weeks for hair to shed and a further two to four weeks for regrowth to occur. So we book appointments between four to six weeks apart. In between treatments we recommend using an Aloe Vera gel which we apply at our clinics immediately after your session. Avoid excess sun, heat and sweating for a few days afterwards. These points will be talked about in detail during your consultation.
