Laser Hair Removal for Women with Polycystic Ovary Syndrome

Hair over-growth is a common side effect of PCOS and because light based treatments do not interfere with medication or surgery, excessive hair growth can be treated at any stage of the medical treatment (with the exception of immediate post-operation where surgery is required).

You need Flash Player in order to view this.
Laser Hair Removal and PCOS
Adele has problems with body hair caused by her polycystic ovary syndrome. Dr Dawn Harper suggests laser therapy and perhaps going onto a type of contraceptive pill.

Hair Reduction treatment using laser and Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) devices is effective for women with PCOS but because;
Unwanted hair growth in women is hormonally driven, until hormonal imbalances are resolved, increased hair growth may continue in spite of hair removal treatments
Associated Symptoms
PCOS is frequently associated with the following symptoms:
  • Weight gain
  • Excessive hair growth in the face and body
  • Irregular and infrequent periods or absent periods
  • Infrequent or absent ovulation
  • Infertility
  • Diagnosis

It is important that a proper diagnosis of PCOS is made and this will require discussion with your GP, who may have access to diagnostics or might refer you to an endocrine specialist.
Otherwise, the situation in terms of how the treatment is carried out and works is precisely the same in PCOS and non PCOS treatment. Where PCOS people differ from others is that the underlying hormone imbalance in PCOS causes new hair follicles to be created at a much faster rate than in non-PCOS people such that treatment may be a recurrent course of regular laser sessions unless and until hormone levels are re-balanced through medical treatment.
What is a Laser?
A laser is a high-energy beam of light that can transfer its energy through the skin to a specific part of the body. These beams of light can vary in terms of their strength and the type of tissue that they can target. In the case of hair removal, pigment contained in the hair shaft can be targeted as can the hair follicle or root with a single specific wavelength (or colour) of light generated by the laser.This energy heats up the base of the hair follicle, which causes damage to the cells that produce hair growth. If enough damage is done, this will prevent the hair from growing any further .The effect is most productive during what is known as the anagen or 'active' phase of hair growth, (other phases include times when the hair is simply resting and no longer growing, or is naturally shedding ready for a new one to form).
Benefits of Laser Hair Removal
Precision. Lasers can selectively target dark, coarse hairs while leaving the surrounding skin undamaged.
The most common areas that men have treated are the face, neck, ears, shoulders, back and chest,
Men have laser hair reduction for many reasons; some reasons may be cosmetic whilst others may be for comfort, many men decide to remove hair as it can be difficult to maintain a presentable and neat look. Men may find that hair can be uncomfortable and cause irritation to many different areas of the body, removing hair can lead to more ease leaving the skin feeling smoother and more manageable.
Once a hair follicle has been destroyed it will never produce hair again.  Therefore all hair from these follicles will be gone permanently.  It's not possible to guarantee that the treated area will always be hair-free though, because inactive follicles, dormant during the treatment period, may become active again at some point in the future, perhaps triggered by hormonal changes in your body.

Does it hurt?
As with all treatments affecting the skin there are of course small risks of side-effects.  Following the treatment your skin may feel a little sore, but very mildly.  There may be some slight reddening of the area treated.  This doesn't even happen in all cases, it depends on the skin type and area treated.  We apply cooling aloe vera gel to all areas treated, which is very effective at reducing any inflammation that results.
Before we commence any treatment we take the time to undertake a detailed consultation with you, making sure that you are comfortable with the process and that you have no pre-existing conditions that could adversely affect it.  You will have a 'patch-test' undertaken, to be sure that your skin does not react adversely to the IPL.  If you experience no adverse reactions to this small test we can proceed with the full treatment.
