About Hirsutism & PCOSCaltrology Electrolysis
00:00 / 02:06
Caltrology Electrolysis offers optimal and effective treatments for permanently removing hair caused by hirsutism and PCOS.     Hirsutism is the growth of excessive male-pattern hair in women after puberty. Women who suffer from PCOS also suffer from Hirsutism, although not every woman who has hirsutism also has PCOS. Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) is a condition that leads to a hormonal imbalance in women, potentially requiring the removal of ovarian cysts. These conditions increase levels of androgens ("male" hormones) in the body, causing symptoms such as excessive facial or body hair. While hormone replacement therapies, like birth control pills, may impact hair growth, they are less effective on existing excessive hair, potentially reducing the need for further hair removal treatments and positively affecting future hair growth. Electrolysis, which targets the hair root, is considered the most effective way to manage excessive hair growth. The exact causes of PCOS remain unknown

Hirsutism is the growth of excessive male-pattern hair in women after puberty. Women who suffer from PCOS also suffer from Hirsutism, although not every woman who has hirsutism also has PCOS. Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) is a condition that leads to a hormonal imbalance in women, potentially requiring the removal of ovarian cysts. These conditions increase levels of androgens ("male" hormones) in the body, causing symptoms such as excessive facial or body hair. While hormone replacement therapies, like birth control pills, may impact hair growth, they are less effective on existing excessive hair, potentially reducing the need for further hair removal treatments and positively affecting future hair growth. Electrolysis, which targets the hair root, is considered the most effective way to manage excessive hair growth. The exact causes of PCOS remain unknown, but genetics and hormonal imbalances are believed to be contributing factors. Common symptoms include irregular menstrual cycles, reduced fertility, excessive hair growth, acne, weight gain, and scalp hair-thinning. Excessive facial hair can be particularly distressing for women, leading to complications like pigmentation, acne, ingrown hairs, and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH), especially in those with darker skin tones. These issues often stem from temporary hair removal techniques like plucking, shaving, waxing, and threading. Treating hirsutism or PCOS-related hair growth requires a commitment to a treatment plan, as well as strict aftercare habits to preserve skin health and achieve optimal outcomes. At Caltrology Electrolysis, we provide expert care, ensuring safe, gentle, and effective hair removal solutions tailored to your needs, with a commitment to offering personalized treatment plans.

 

Please consult your doctor for an official diagnosis if you believe you may suffer from hirsutism or PCOS, as electrologists ethically should not offer a diagnosis to a client. Doctors may perform a blood test to diagnose hirsutism or PCOS, and can recommend hormone therapy to restore hormonal balance.
