PCOS Laser Hair Removal

PCOS Laser Hair Removal for Long-Lasting Hair Reduction

Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a common hormonal disorder affecting a large number of people worldwide. Hirsutism, the medical term for excessive hair growth, is a common symptom of polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) and is associated with significant emotional discomfort and impaired quality of life.
There is currently no treatment for PCOS, however it can be managed with hormonal medicines and cosmetic procedures such as PCOS laser hair removal. LLC Cosmetic Laser Clinics provides safe and effective laser hair removal services for people with PCOS.

This article will discuss the laser hair removal options available at LLC Cosmetic Laser Clinics for ladies who suffer from polycystic ovary syndrome.


Safe and Effective Method of Hair Removal 

Laser hair removal is a method of permanently eliminating unwanted hair by selectively targeting and destroying hair follicles. This operation is beneficial for patients with polycystic ovarian syndrome since it is minimally invasive, results in less discomfort, and necessitates minimal to no recovery time.

Consultation with a certified laser technician is the initial stage in the laser hair removal process for PCOS patients at LLC Cosmetic Laser Clinics. In order to determine if laser hair removal is safe and successful, the technician will examine the client's skin and hair and ask about any existing medical concerns. They will explain the benefits and drawbacks of the treatment, the expected cost, and the number of appointments required.

Pre-treatment Preparation

The patient will be instructed to refrain from using sun exposure, tanning beds, and any topical medications on the treatment region for a few weeks before to the treatment if they choose to go through with it. It's also recommended that they refrain from plucking or waxing the area before laser treatment.

The patient should have their skin thoroughly cleansed and dried before arriving for treatment. To lessen any potential discomfort, the technician will apply a cooling gel to the treatment region.

During the Treatment

During the treatment, the technician will use a laser machine that emits a beam of light energy that is absorbed by the hair follicles. The laser's energy is converted into heat, which damages the hair follicle and prevents future hair growth. The technician will adjust the laser's settings to match the patient's skin type, hair type, and colour, ensuring the most effective and safe treatment.

The duration of each laser hair removal session varies depending on the size and location of the treatment area. Small areas, such as the upper lip, may take only a few minutes, while larger areas, such as the legs, may take up to an hour. The technician will use a handheld device that emits the laser's energy in short bursts, targeting each hair follicle individually.

Post Treatment

After the treatment, the technician will apply a cooling spray or ice pack to soothe the treated area. The patient may experience some redness,  or mild discomfort, which should subside within a few hours. The technician will provide detailed aftercare instructions, such as avoiding sun exposure, swimming, and hot tubs for a few days, and keeping the treated area clean and dry.

How Many Sessions Are Required?

The number of laser hair removal sessions required for PCOS patients depends on several factors, such as the patient's hair type, skin type, and colour, the size and location of the treatment area, and the patient's desired results. Generally, PCOS patients require more sessions than patients without PCOS due to the nature of the condition. However, the clinic's certified laser technicians will tailor a personalised treatment plan for each patient, ensuring the best possible results.

Cost of Laser Hair Removal

The cost of laser hair removal for PCOS patients at LLC Cosmetic Laser Clinics varies depending on the size and location of the treatment area, the number of sessions required, and the patient's location. Generally, larger areas such as the legs or back cost more than smaller areas such as the upper lip or chin. Additionally, patients with PCOS may require more sessions than those without the condition, which can increase the total cost.

However, LLC Cosmetic Laser Clinics offers competitive pricing and flexible payment plans to make laser hair removal accessible to all patients, regardless of their budget. The clinic also regularly runs special promotions and discounts, which can further reduce the cost of laser hair removal for PCOS patients.

It is important to note that while laser hair removal for PCOS patients may require several sessions, it is a long-term investment that can significantly improve the patient's quality of life. PCOS patients with excess hair growth often feel self-conscious and embarrassed, which can affect their mental health and confidence. Laser hair removal can help alleviate these feelings and restore the patient's confidence, making it a worthwhile investment for many.
