PCOS Facial Hair & How to Get Rid of it Permanently

By January 19, 2014Blog

Do you suffer from PCOS facial hair?

Women who suffer from Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) can experience many symptoms such as;

  • Acne
  • Weight gain
  • Irregular or painful periods
  • Excess hair growth

There are treatments available for most of these side effects, but often, women are on their own when it comes to the PCOS facial hair issue.

Excess growth of hair caused by PCOS can occur on the face, abdomen and chest and can be the most uncomfortable condition, leading to feelings of low self-esteem and depression for many women.

PCOS facial hair can vary in intensity, from the odd, coarse hair to the occurrence of excess growth to the point where she will feel that she needs to shave daily to cope with the situation.

Facial Hair removal options

Shaving is not ideal on the sensitive skin of the face, as it can result in soreness, dryness and over time, the skin becomes tougher. Although shaving does not encourage more hair to grow, the appearance of the hairs will become coarser and thicker. Often, in extreme cases of PCOS facial hair, shaving is the only option for women to maintain a degree of control over the excessive growth.

Plucking or waxing are other methods commonly used by many women, but this can be an extremely painful process and also time-consuming when dealing with an abundance of hairs. These methods can also lead to tearing of the hair follicle which results in the production of a stronger, thicker hair and can lead to distortion.

Electrolysis can help. For more than 100 years, electrolysis has been recognised as the only permanent method of hair removal.

PCOS facial hair can be treated with electrolysis with far less discomfort than plucking or waxing and once the treatment is completed, the occurrence of facial hair growth is negated, bringing the long-awaited relief that PCOS sufferers crave.
