PCOS can cause excessive hair growth in women

Posted on 15 Jan, 2012

Polycystic Ovary Syndrome is caused by a hormone imbalance in women where they produce excessive amounts of male hormones. As a result, the menstrual cycle can be affected; problems with acne can develop as well as patterns of facial and body hair growth that are more typical of males.

Increased body hair on the face, chest and abdomen can cause women a considerable amount of distress. Depending on the extent of hair growth, it can be difficult to manage or hide, and result in terrible self-confidence and esteem.

Luckily, there is a hair removal method that can provide long-lasting and effective results. IPL targets the offending dark hairs with pulses of intense white light, which the hair absorbs. The energy travels along with the hair to the follicle, where the heat energy produced causes the hair follicle to denature.

After a couple of weeks, the hair falls out naturally, leaving an empty hair follicle that is unable to produce another hair. Treatment is fast, and unlike other methods like shaving and waxing, does not need to be repeated on a frequent basis.
