Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome

Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome, also known as PCOS, is a condition that impacts thousands of womenof a reproductive age.

This medical condition causes small cysts to develop around the ovaries which can cause excess amounts of androgen (a male hormone) to enter the bloodstream. Women who suffer from PCOS (Polycystic Ovary Syndrome), can suddenly seemingly out of the blue, develop thick dark hairs on the face, chest, and tummy areas. 

Interestingly, both men and women are born with around the same number of hair follicles as each other. When girls reach puberty they will continue to grow vellus hair (soft light peach-fuzz types of hairs) on their bodies while. Meanwhile, boys of the same age will start producing more male hormones which turn these same hairs into thick and dark terminal hairs.

Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome

In PCOS, the excess production of androgen in women triggers this identical process that occurs in teenage boys. Likewise, the normal vellus hairs turn terminal and they cannot return to their previous fine, light state. With the PCOS treatments excess body and facial hair might only slow down hair growth but not stop it entirely.  

Often the best way to get rid of the unwanted hair permanently is through Electrolysis hair removal. 

Also with electrolysis we can permanently remove the light blond vellus hair around your problem area too, prevent any future hair darkening. Something laser is unable to do.

What is the treatment for Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS)? 

The treatment for PCOS depends on the specific individual and their symptoms. Sometimes women who present with irregular menstrual cycles or with fertility problems are prescribed medications. 

Where weight gain is an issue, dietary changes many need to be followed.  A diabetic healthy eating plan that omits complex carbohydrates which raise your blood sugar, is also an important step. 

For unwanted hair, electrolysis is the best way to get rid of the unwanted hair permanently from the hair root.
