What Is PCOS & Can Electrolysis Help?, Northeast Dallas, Texas

Polycystic ovary syndrome, or PCOS, is a condition that can affect women who are of childbearing age, and doctors believe that many women haven’t been diagnosed. For many with PCOS, heavy hair growth is a cause for concern. Fortunately, electrolysis can help you manage hair growth and help you feel confident in your own skin. Here’s what you should know about PCOS and electrolysis. 

What Is PCOS?

Polycystic ovary syndrome is a hormonal condition where a woman’s body creates too much of the male hormone, androgen. This hormone leads to the overproduction of cysts in the ovaries, causing irregular periods and abnormal hair growth. PCOS is one of the leading causes of infertility in women. 

What Are the Symptoms?

electrolysisSymptoms of PCOS include irregular periods, heavy bleeding during periods, acne, male-pattern hair growth such as on the back or face, weight gain, baldness or thinning hair, and headaches. Few women experience these symptoms and only find out they have PCOS after they have trouble getting pregnant. 

What Are the Treatment Options?

Treatment options for PCOS start with lifestyle adjustments. Your gynecologist or primary care doctor will have you adjust your exercise and diet routines and will monitor your weight. Other treatments include hormonal birth control, which will help regulate the overabundance of male hormones. Drugs for diabetes treatment are also used. Finally, many women who struggle with abnormal hair growth turn to electrolysis for permanent hair removal. 

How Is Electrolysis Used for Permanent Hair Removal?

Unlike waxing, tweezing, or topical medication, electrolysis is a permanent solution for unwanted hair growth. It can help women struggling with male-pattern hair growth on their bellies, legs, back, chest, and face to regain smooth skin and never grow another hair. Doctors insert a microscopic probe into the hair follicle and introduce a tiny electrical current. This current kills the hair and the regenerative receptors responsible for growing new ones.
