What is PCOS?
April 6, 2016 /
Men aren’t the only ones that can grow a beard or mustache. Did you know women can too? It’s called Polycystic Ovary Syndrome.
What is PCOS?
PCOS is a common disorder that takes place when a woman’s hormones are out of balance due to insulin-producing cells being over-responsive and creating too much insulin causing hyperinsulinemia. This increase in insulin causes the ovaries to produce too much testosterone. 1 in 10 American women of childbearing age is affected by PCOS, making it by far the most common hormonal imbalance in women of this age group. Symptoms of PCOS include infertility, weight gain, acne and abnormal hair growth.
Because of an excess of male hormones, women with PCOS can experience unwanted hair growth on the face, chin, and neck. So women have facial hair too! Nothing makes a woman feel more unfeminine than thick, black hair sprouting in unsightly places. And that’s why many women with PCOS come to Sona MedSpa.
How do women with PCOS manage hair growth?
Shaving, waxing, and plucking is a daily routine to those with this disorder. And laser hair removal has been a saving grace to some. The ability to receive laser hair removal every 6-8 weeks allows women with PCOS to stop the daily routine of shaving and enjoy less time in the bathroom and more time of doing things they want to do!
“Personally, my hair growth got worse and worse over about 15 years before I started treatment with Sona MedSpa. My hair growth is mostly contained to my chin and neck, and laser hair removal treatments have made it all but disappear. This means no more daily tweezing and shaving!”
