For millions of women across the UK, living with Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) is a part of everyday life. It is a common condition in which cysts grow on the ovaries and whilst in most cases it causes no health issues, they can result in hormonal imbalances, as the ovaries start to produce more male hormones than normal.
Having PCOS can trigger a number of symptoms such as acne and heavy or irregular periods.
It is also common for women to experience an abnormal increase in hair growth often affecting the sufferers self confidence and causing them a great deal of anxiety and embarrassment.
New you Laser Clinic offer the very best in laser hair removal for PCOS sufferers. Utilising the most advanced class 4 medical grade lasers available today, the Lynton Duetto MT, recognised as the gold standard in the treatment of excess hair conditions, and widely used by the NHS consistently achieving outstanding results.
The Duetto MT laser generates high-powered light at a specific wavelength that is precisely directed and absorbed by the pigment in the hair follicle. This light energy heats the pigment and effectively destroys the hair follicle right down to the root without damaging the surrounding tissue cells.
We recommend you shave the area you wish to be treated for more effective results. Please avoid waxing, plucking, hair removal creams or threading as that will remove the hairs from the hair follicle that laser will be targeting.
The applicator is placed on the skin and a short pulse of light is released, which targets many follicles simultaneously. The applicator is then moved to the neighbouring area of unwanted hair and the process is repeated until the entire area is treated.
Treatment times will vary depending on the size of the area being treated. Book a free consultation today for a personal treatment plan.
Hair on our body follows a natural growth cycle firstly Anagen actively growing phase. Then Catagen the transition phase. The Telogen resting phase. And finally Anagen new growth phase
Only Anagen actively growing hair will effectively respond to laser treatment, as all the hair on our body is at different points of the growth cycle multiple treatments are required to completely remove all hair.
Although good results are seen after the first treatment for optimal hair removal most clients require six or more treatments.
Leaving 4 – 6 weeks between treatments allows dormant hairs to reach the anagen phase again and respond effectively to treatment.
Treatment is described as virtually painless to mildly uncomfortable similar to that of being flicked with an elastic band. A skin-cooling device will be used to reduce any discomfort during treatment if required.
Laser hair removal is simple, safe, and can produce fantastic results.
The skin may be red immediately after treatment and the hair follicles may be swollen and bumpy but this usually subsides within a few hours. Unwanted reactions are rare but may include a small amount of blistering or temporary lightening or darkening of the skin.
