Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) and Electrolysis

PCOS is one of the most common, if not the most common female disorder. PCOS is a condition that can affect a woman's hormones, appearance, menstrual cycle, ability to have children, etc.


Further research needs to be done on what causes PCOS, but today experts have presumed that genetics, excess androgen hormones, and excess insulin have played a significant role.


Symptoms of PCOS include:


  • Infertility

  • HIRSUTISM-excessive hair growth on the face, chest, stomach, back, etc.

  • Irregular periods, missed periods, light periods.

  • weight gain, especially around the abdomen

  • Acne or oily skin

  • Dark or thick skin patches on the back of the neck, armpits & under the breast

  • Thinning hair

PCOS symptoms vary from woman to woman. There is not just one distinct symptom of PCOS; the severity differs for each. Generally, if you have most of the symptoms listed above, you should have a workup for PCOS.


Electrolysis can get rid of the excess hair that can sometimes accompany PCOS!


During your consultation, your concerns are expressed. Your new client intake is reviewed to see if you're an immediate candidate or if I feel the need for you to see a doctor for medical diagnosis/treatment before you proceed with electrolysis hair removal.
