PCOS Awareness Month: Miriah’s story

It’s estimated that 1 in 10 women have PCOS, Polycystic Ovary Syndrome. Whilst more research is needed on the condition, it’s thought to be caused by hormone imbalances. Symptoms vary by person, typically women may experience fertility problems, hair thinning, weight gain and irregular periods. A common condition that women get alongside PCOS is Hirsutism. Hirsutism is an increase in androgen, a male hormone that can cause excessive hair growth on the face, neck, chest and back.

Currently, there is no cure for PCOS and Hirsutism, leaving women to seek out ways to manage their symptoms. Women tell us that the facial hair growth is the thing they struggle with most and traditional hair removal methods only provide short relief.

We’re sharing four women’s stories who have PCOS and how SmoothSkin Pure Fit has helped them finally find a long-term solution.

Miriah’s journey

I was diagnosed with PCOS 10 years ago. The biggest battle of PCOS is the hair growth on the face. As a woman, you are expected to be feminine and being feminine doesn’t mean having a hairy face. I was told there’s nothing you can do about the hair; you need to shave or epilate. From there, it became an on-going constant upkeep. There are plenty of women out there to have the courage to just let it grow, unfortunately, I’m not one of them. I feel like it took away from my femininity. Even through when I see those women, they make me happy.

“I’ve spent hundreds, if not thousands of pounds on creams, bleaches, waxing and threading”

The only thing that really works for me is shaving. That led to stubble, problems with makeup, having red patches because when you shave you get irritation and ingrown hairs.

Q: What are you hoping to achieve with SmoothSkin Pure Fit?

A: “Being able to do it in the privacy in my own home, myself. And, it promises to reduce the hair growing so I would like to be able to shave once a week instead of daily”

Q: What does a treatment feel like?

A: I can feel the warmth but it wasn’t painful. It’s comfortable and easy to hold and its easy to manoeuvre around the face.

Miriah’s results

  • After 2 treatments: Surprisingly it seems that it has reduced how much my hair is growing, I’ve noticed it mainly on my upper lip.
  • After 4 treatments: I’m hardly getting any of the thicker hairs coming through on my cheeks. Most of the finer yet dark hairs are gone, the growth rate is slower. I’m only getting a couple that are coming through.
  • After 12 treatments: There’s nothing here. It’s really weird for me to not have facial hair. When I shave, within about the first 24 hours I would need to re-do it if I was leaving the house. Now I don’t have to do anything, it’s great.


How would you sum up your experience with SmoothSkin Pure Fit?

It’s amazing, and definitely worth the money. I will continue to use it so I don’t have to spend money on razors and replacing epilator heads and all things like that.

How SmoothSkin Pure Fit can help tackle PCOS related hair growth

As the global leaders in IPL technology, we’ve developed the most sophisticated technology for quick, and long-lasting results. SmoothSkin Pure Fit is two times faster and 3 times more powerful than competitors. IPL hair removal can help to tackle facial and body hair by:

  • Tackles hair at the root: IPL works by using a powerful, but painless pulse of light to target hair beneath the skin to disable the hair follicle, preventing re-growth.
  • Up to 97% hair reduction: In a recent study, 86% of users with PCOS saw visible hair reduction on their face after 4 treatments.
  • Permanent solution: After the initial treatment regime, use Pure Fit every 4-8 weeks to maintain your results. Unlike daily shaving which causes irritation, or painful waxes where hair has to grow before treatment – with Pure Fit you get a cost-effective treatment from the comfort of your home.
