Understanding PCOS and laser hair removal.

Polycystic ovarian syndrome (or PCOS) is one of the most common conditions I see in women when working in general practice. It has a variety of symptoms that affect different woman at different stages of their lives. It is often diagnosed whilst other symptoms are being investigated such as:

✔ Fertility problems
✔ Irregular periods
✔ Acne
✔ Excess hair (hirsutism).

There is plenty of mystery surrounding PCOS, so I’m here to reveal exactly what it is and what the symptoms and treatments look like. Keep scrolling for everything you need to know about PCOS.

Polycystic ovarian syndrome is a hormonal condition that affects the ovaries and causes several characteristic symptoms including:

✔ Irregular periods,
✔ Fertility problems,
✔ Acne,
✔ Excessive facial and body hair (hirsutism),
✔ Weight gain,
✔ Hair loss on your head,
✔Low mood and mood swings.

In women with PCOS, their ovaries are larger than normal. This is because their ovaries contain a large number of fluid filled sacks, otherwise known as cysts, instead of follicles.

Each ovarian follicle contains a single oocyte which is an immature egg. During the normal menstrual cycle the oocyte matures leading up to ovulation in response to hormone levels.

In PCOS, the follicles stop growing too early and instead of releasing an egg they develop into larger fluid filled cysts.
It is important to remember that polycystic ovaries can actually be a normal finding, it can be seen in up to 33% of women at reproductive age when an ultrasound scan is performed.

Woman should only be diagnosed with polycystic ovarian syndrome if they have the associated symptoms described above.

What causes PCOS?

Despite PCOS being an extremely common condition affecting 20% of woman, the underlying cause is still not known.
There is a genetic link, meaning that if your mother, auntie or sisters suffer with PCOS, there is a higher risk that you could develop the condition too. Although the inherited gene that is responsible for causing PCOS has not yet been identified. At present, the general consensus is that the cause of PCOS is multifactorial, meaning both genetic and environmental factors have a role to play.

Hormone imbalance

The underlying driving force of PCOS is hormone related.

In woman with PCOS the following hormonal changes are present:
Increased levels of testosterone

Excess testosterone is produced by the theca cells of the ovaries secondary to increased levels of LH and insulin (discussed below). It is the raised levels of testosterone than give rise to the characteristic symptoms of PCOS including acne, hirsutism and mood swings.

Insulin Resistance:

Insulin is a hormone which regulates the levels of glucose in the blood. It transports glucose from the blood into muscle cells where it can be used as an energy source. In PCOS, the body is insulin resistant which means it is less sensitive to the effects of insulin and as a result the glucose levels in the blood rise.The pancreas produces more insulin in an attempt to compensate for the insulin resistance of the body’s tissue cells.
The high levels of insulin also affects the ovaries directly and cause them to produce excessive levels of testosterone. The combined effect of insulin resistance and raised testosterone levels give rise to typical symptoms of PCOS, in particular weight gain, acne, mood swings and excess hair growth.

Persistently high levels of glucose in the blood also has detrimental health effects itself, such as increased risk of other medical conditions such as type two diabetes, high blood pressure, raised cholesterol and obesity which all significantly impact on our cardiovascular health.

Investigations:

If you have any of the symptoms of PCOS, you should visit your doctor for a full assessment. After the initial consultation, investigations including blood tests and ultrasound scan of the pelvis will be arranged.

How is PCOS diagnosed?

There is not one specific test result that diagnoses a woman with PCOS. As it is a “syndrome” this means the characteristic symptoms, discussed above, need to be present. As I mentioned earlier, just because your ovaries may have cysts present on ultrasound scan, it doesn’t mean you should be automatically diagnosed with PCOS. After all, PCOS is hormone driven, so it is completely normal for your ovaries to have cysts present depending on what stage of your menstrual cycle you are at when the ultrasound is carried out.

In addition to the ultrasound scans, bloods tests will be carried out to check your hormone levels and glucose levels.

In patients with PCOS the following blood results can be commonly seen:

✔Raised testosterone levels
✔Raised LH (luteinising hormone levels)
✔Reduced sex-hormone binding globulin (SHBG)
✔Raised glucose levels

Treatment:

Unfortunately, PCOS cannot be cured, however, the good news is that the symptoms can be effectively managed with a combination of lifestyle changes and in some cases, medications.
Weight management is fundamental to the management of PCOS.

Weight loss has been shown to improve fertility, reduce insulin resistance, which in turn, also reduces cardiovascular risk factors such as high blood pressure and cholesterol.

The PCOS Diet:

✔Following a low GI diet is recommended in patients with PCOS.
✔Not only does it aid weight loss, it also helps avoids peaks and troughs in insulin levels which occurs with a diet high in refined sugars and carbohydrates.
✔When the insulin levels are effectively regulated with a low GI diet, in the characteristic symptoms of PCOS driven by insulin and testosterone, are significantly reduced when these hormone levels are re- balanced.

Medication:

There is a role for medication in combination with weight management, diet and exercise.

The combined contraceptive pill can be used to control irregular periods.

Metformin is a drug that is used to treat type two diabetes. It can also be prescribed, off license by a specialist to treat PCOS. It works by the principle of reducing glucose levels and reducing insulin resistance that, indirectly, helps to re balance the hormone imbalance which drives PCOS.

In woman who experience problems conceiving secondary to PCOS, medications such as clomifene, can be prescribed to induce ovulation and improve fertility.

In summary:

✔PCOS is a common condition and treatable condition.
✔It is diagnosed by characteristic symptoms and supported by hormonal changes found on blood tests and typical cystic appearance of ovaries on an ultrasound scan.
✔Although there is no cure, weight control, diet and lifestyle changes can all help re- balance the hormone imbalance which drives PCOS, which helps to manage symptoms and improve quality of life.

Hope this gives more clarity for our laser clients struggling with this problem.

Laser Hair Removal for women with PCOS.

METHODS:

✔This study prospectively assessed hair counts, hair-free intervals and patient satisfaction in 60 women with PCOS undergoing laser treatment.

RESULTS:

✔Following six treatments there was a 31+/-38% reduction in hair counts. Hair-free interval (HFI) increased steadily with treatment, from 1.9 weeks after six treatments to 4.3 weeks after 10 treatments.

✔From the postal questionnaire, after an average of 12 treatments, 31% of patients had a HFI longer than 6 weeks compared to only 2.6% after six treatments.

✔Overall, despite the low hair count reductions, 95% of patients were satisfied with treatment.

CONCLUSION:

✔In women with PCOS, laser treatment, offering more than six treatments does have additional benefits in terms of prolonging HFI and overall patient satisfaction with this treatment is very high.

Remember to take care of yourself. Sometimes you get so busy taking care of others that you forget that YOU ARE IMPORTANT TOO!

After discovering a lump on her neck, this client approached her Doctor, and to her surprise, her Doctor informed her that she had a very rare type of cancerous tumor, the Carotid Body Tumor. After her surgery the scar started to become hypertrophic, which can lead to keloid formation, so she started Scar Repair Forté Super Strength Serum and, after a couple of months, she had almost no scarring.

Ensure you give yourself the TLC you need and deserve, regularly check your body for lumps and bumps that could be detrimental to your health. If anything pops up that was not there before, get it checked out. You only have one body so take good care of it!

Health is the relationship between you and your body!
