What are the symptoms of PCOS?
The most common symptoms of PCOS include excessive hair growth, irregular or no periods, weight gain, thinning hair and acne. It has also been associated with diabetes. At sk:n we also have a wide range of acne and acne scarring treatments so talk to one of our acne specialists if you are suffering from this condition.
Why Does Pcos Cause Acne?
The hormonal imbalance associated with PCOS can have an impact on the skin’s appearance. Many people suffer from excess oil, which can lead to congestion in the skin resulting in breakouts and acne. This can, in turn, lead to painful nodules and even scarring.
Why Does Pcos Cause Facial Hair?
The presence of high levels of male hormones (androgens) associated with PCOS can lead to excessive hair growth on the face and body. This can be extremely embarrassing and difficult to manage, with some women suffering from anxiety and depression as a result. Regular waxing and shaving can cause the delicate skin on the face to become sore and sensitive with ingrown hairs – and can even cause hyperpigmentation.
What is hirsutism?
Hirsutism is the name given to excessive hair growth in women and is caused by the production of the androgens hormones, such as testosterone. The most common cause of hirsutism is PCOS but it can also be caused by medicines, anabolic steroids, or other hormonal conditions. Find out more on the NHS website.
Does laser hair removal hurt?
Laser hair removal doesn’t hurt. It is described as feeling like the flick of an elastic band on your skin. The more sessions you have, the less pain you feel as there are fewer hair follicles targeted.
How long does laser hair removal last?
Clients can see up to 90% permanent reduction in hair growth after a course of treatments. Results are dependent on hair type and colour.
Is laser hair removal safe?
Yes, laser hair removal is completely safe. The high-grade laser targets only the hair follicle which ensures the surrounding skin is unharmed. You may experience some redness, but this should subside within 24 hours.
Is laser hair removal suitable for darker skin?
Laser hair treatment is suitable for any skin type or colour, as long as your hairs are dark enough to attract the laser. We use specific lasers for darker skin tones.
What are the alternatives to laser hair removal?
Home remedies include shaving, waxing, bleaching, plucking, or hair removal creams. Unfortunately, none of these will last very long and the hair will return quickly. Professional waxing treatments could last longer, however, this can become quite costly as well as time-consuming as you usually have to repeat the treatment every 2-4 weeks on an ongoing basis. Unlike IPL (intense pulsed light), laser hair removal is suitable for dark skin tones and hard-to-reach areas. And in contrast to electrolysis, it can be used to remove hair all over the body, with the ability to target large areas at one time.
Why do I need a course of treatments?
The hair grows in four phases: the anagen phase, the catagen phase, the telogen phase and the exogen phase. The hair follicle must be targeted at a specific time during its growth cycle which will prevent the hair from returning. Individual hairs will most likely be in different parts of the hair growth cycle at any one time hence the reason why a course of treatments is required. Your practitioner will talk this through with you during your initial consultation, but as a guide we usually recommend 6-8 sessions spaced 4-6 weeks apart (depending on the body area to be treated).
