PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome)

PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome)

One of the most common female endocrine disorders, and yet a large percentage of people who have the disorder haven’t actually been diagnosed. Luciderm Aesthetics get a large number of clients coming to us with this condition.

Common symptoms include weight gain, pelvic pain and even sleep apnoea in some cases. Women suffering from PCOS may experience high testosterone levels, which cause other signs and symptoms such as Hirsutism (excessive hair growth), male pattern baldness and acne. This is where Luciderm laser treatments can help you. It’s more than enough to have to deal with the life altering effects that this disorder can cause such as infertility, you don’t need the added stresses of unwanted symptoms such as excessive hair growth and acne to hold you back from enjoying your life to the fullest

As a sufferer of PCOS myself I can fully empathise with anybody who is going through it. I was lucky that I only suffered mildly with it and was fortunate enough to have my beautiful boy without complications. At the very least I hope to help other people who may be going through similar issues to deal with some of their symptoms and I will do what I can to make people more aware of this condition.
