For some people with underlying hormonal conditions like PCOS
(Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome), laser hair removal can end up being a hair management system rather than a permanent solution. Whilst we can heat and destroy actively growing hair follicles, if dormant hair follicles are constantly being stimulated by hormones, then new hair growth would need to be lasered in the same way.
Whilst we always warn clients of this at Laser Chic, to date, all of our PCOS sufferers respond in exactly the same way as everyone else. Namely that a course of 6-12 laser hair removal treatments are required in order to achieve the required reduction, followed by the odd top up treatment if and when any ‘new’ growth appears.
