Polycystic ovary syndrome is a hormonal disorder that can affect a woman who is still in her childbearing years. It can show up in acne, missed periods, weight gain, or excessive facial hair. Can laser hair removal treatment help with PCOS? Read on to find out more.

Reduced Hirsutism

Hirsutism refers to when women experience dark or coarse hair growth in areas and patterns similar to men. Laser hair removal treatment is effective because it targets hair follicles. The laser targets the pigment and lightens them. Therefore, instead of experiencing dark hair growth, it may be less noticeable as it lightens up. It’s also effective at thinning out this coarse hair over time in multiple sessions.

Skin Protection

Many skin problems occur with PCOS. As mentioned, one can experience course facial hair growth or acne. According to StudyFinds, almost 60% of people aren’t comfortable in their skin, but laser treatment can help people who feel this way. When you choose to shave the hair from your face, it may irritate your skin. As a result, you may develop shave bumps, cuts, and scrapes that can worsen your skin health. Professional laser hair removal is precise and targets those specific hair follicles. As a result, the rest of your skin will be protected while experiencing permanent hair removal.

Longer Solution

While you have easy access to a shaver or tweezer at home, these are short-term solutions. Plus, the hair stubs will quickly grow back, and you’ll constantly have to use this method. Conversely, when you use laser hair removal treatment, it can lead to permanent hair removal after a few sessions.

More Confidence and Self Esteem

When a woman has excessive facial hair, it can affect how she feels about herself. By taking the time for laser hair removal, these permanent results can help you feel comfortable in your skin again. If you were shying away from socializing, dating, or feeling less confident at work, this treatment can restore your self-esteem.

If you’re suffering from PCOS and you have excessive facial hair, you no longer have to deal with this issue. You also don’t have to worry about temporary methods like shaving.
