Understanding Laser Hair Removal for PCOS
at Sparkle Lifestyle MediSpa in Moncton
At Sparkle Lifestyle MediSpa in Moncton, we specialize in using the Gentle Max Pro, a true medical-grade laser system, to address unwanted hair growth, particularly for women with PCOS (Polycystic Ovary Syndrome).
How Many Laser Sessions Does PCOS Require?
Women with PCOS often find that they need additional laser hair removal sessions due to the persistent nature of their hair growth. On average:
- Body: 10-12 Gentle Max Pro sessions are recommended.
- Face: Over 12 sessions might be necessary.
Our medical-grade Alexandrite or ND Yag lasers yield significantly superior results compared to IPL treatments.
PCOS and Hair Regrowth Post Laser Hair Removal
Several factors, such as hormonal imbalances, ageing, and pregnancy, can influence hair regrowth. For those with PCOS, we recommend maintenance treatments:
- Every 6 months, in general.
- However, intervals might vary if you’re on specific medications.
Many of our satisfied PCOS clients aren’t on medication, but regular maintenance is still advised to counteract the continuous hair production typical of PCOS.
Why Choose Sparkle Lifestyle MediSpa’s Laser Hair Removal Treatments?
Our Gentle Max Pro system stands out for several reasons:
- Safety and Efficiency: We prioritize your well-being. Our medical lasers ensure quicker and safer results in fewer sessions compared to IPL and DIODE systems.
- Comparative Results: IPL often requires 2 or 3 times more sessions and typically only slows hair growth, failing to eliminate hair follicles permanently. While diode treatments might be less painful than IPL, they still necessitate more sessions than our Gentle Max Pro system.
Expected Results with Gentle Max Pro
On average, our clients achieve a staggering 75 to 95% hair reduction in just 4 to 8 sessions with the Gentle Max Pro, contrasting sharply with the 10 to 15 sessions needed with conventional IPL.
However, it’s essential to note that individual results can vary based on skin type, hair colour, thickness, and adherence to the suggested interval between sessions. At Sparkle Lifestyle MediSpa, we’re here to guide and support you through each step of your hair removal journey.
