Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) is a condition that thousands of women in the UK and across the world have to deal with, and it can produce some very distressing side effects. At the Harley Medical Group we can provide some assistance for one such side effect. Excessive facial and body hair is a common issue among those diagnosed with PCOS, but with our laser hair removal packages, women everywhere can be rid of their unwanted hair. Laser hair removal is the most effective method of hair removal and can help to remove between 80 and 90% of all hair that is treated. Not only this, but it can also be carried out on practically any area of the body, so whether your PCOS has caused excess facial hair or body hair, we can help.Laser hair removal works by using a fractional laser on the affected area. This high-quality laser passes through the skin and is then absorbed by the hairs pigment, destroying it from the inside out and removing it instantly. It can also prevent, or permanently reduce further hair from developing, so you can be hair-free following a course of around six sessions. The treatment itself can take between ten and forty minutes this is entirely dependent on the area that you would like to have treated. At the Harley Medical Group we can treat patients with all kinds of hair colours, such as dark, blonde, grey and white, and our laser hair removal machines can even be used to remove vellus body hair and ingrown hairs. Our lasers work with many different skin tones as well, so we can treat people with white, Asian, Afro Caribbean or dark skin. If you would like to arrange a consultation at any one of our 31 clinics, you can fill in our online form for laser hair removal today, and be free from feeling self-conscious about the visible side effects of your PCOS.
