PCOS Laser Hair Removal

Our clinic in Manchester treats women who are experiencing unwanted hair growth as a result of PCOS.

What is PCOS?

PCOS stands for Polycystic Ovary Syndrome. It is a hormonal disorder that affects women of reproductive age. PCOS is characterised by an imbalance of hormones, specifically high levels of androgens (male hormones) in the body. This hormonal imbalance can lead to various symptoms and health problems.

Women with PCOS often experience irregular menstrual periods or may not have periods at all. They may also have multiple cysts on their ovaries, although the term “polycystic” can be misleading because not all women with PCOS have cysts.

Other common symptoms of PCOS include excessive hair growth (hirsutism), acne, weight gain or difficulty losing weight, and thinning hair. PCOS can also cause fertility issues, as the hormonal imbalances can disrupt ovulation.

PCOS and Unwanted Hair

One common symptom of PCOS is the growth of unwanted hair on the face, chest, back, or other areas of the body, which can be distressing and impact self-esteem. To address this concern, the Soprano Titanium laser hair removal system offers an effective solution. Using advanced diode laser technology, Soprano Titanium delivers precise and controlled energy pulses to target hair follicles. The laser energy is absorbed by the pigment in the hair, disabling the follicle and preventing future hair growth. This treatment is safe and suitable for various skin types and can selectively target dark, coarse hairs while leaving the surrounding skin undamaged. Soprano Titanium’s gradual heating and IN-Motion technology ensure a comfortable and virtually painless experience. With multiple treatment sessions, spaced appropriately, this innovative laser hair removal system can significantly reduce unwanted hair growth caused by PCOS, providing women with long-lasting results and increased confidence.
