Laser and PCOS in the cases I have dealt with, are not a good mix. Your risk of stimulation is much higher then a person without PCOS.
Before you make a decision, know exactly what your outcome is you expect. If you want a Permanent solution, then laser is not the way to go. Your only choice is electrolysis. You need to plan. At Permanence, we spend time planning upfront what you want to achieve, create milestones, then deliver to those expectations.
There are 3 types of electrolysis. Thermolysis Blend and galvanic multi probe. As a specialist in multi probe, the following is how I would plan your treatment. Others will be able to road map you through their speciality of what they would recommend, so will leave thermolysis and blend to them.
I would clear the face first, by 6 months you should be fairly comfortable, however it will take, pending the condition is severe, approximately 12 - 18 months to complete. Budget is also to be considered, it can be spread out over a longer time frame if necessary.
Once the face is complete, then move onto the body, working areas that are of most concern to you e.g. chest and breasts, stomach, lower back etc. As each area is complete move onto the next. With dark skin there are no issues with Galvanic creating pigmentation issues, so you can relax.
You are looking at possibly a 5-10 year plan to complete the full body strip, much earlier if there are no financial limitations. The benefits, there is an end to treatment, you are guaranteed to be hair free for the rest of your life. Currently we are almost finished several full body strips and the feed back is always the same, “freedom, best decision I ever made”.
There will be others in this forum that have very different ways of taking you on your journey, however this will give you a platform to base your decision on what works best for you. At the end of the day, all 3 modalities lead to a permanent solution, explore all 3, trial all 3, then the one you choose will be the perfect one for you.
