It’s estimated that over 5 million women in the United States 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.
Rachel suffers with PCOS and has done for the past 20 years. She says “I’m very hairy everywhere. I can hide the hair on the rest of my body but my face is constantly on show. The hair grows back so quickly. I can shave in the morning and 6 hours later I have a dark shadow.”
Like many women, Rachel opts for shaving over other methods due to the speed and ease of treatments. However, as shaving only targets hair above the skin, stubble usually appears quickly, with dark shadows being visible under the skin. As Rachel works nights, she tells us “I used to take a razor to work with me. I would shave in the morning because I was so embarrassed of seeing people the next morning, coming home with a beard”.
“I look forward to using it every Monday”
After 2 treatments: “There’s patches of hair that’s hasn’t grown back. This has never happened before I’ve always had a full on beard.”
After 4 treatments: “Last week I was really happy with my results, this week is something different altogether. I never ever thought that it would work so quickly, I can go all week and I’m not conscious at all of going out without shaving”
After 12 treatments: “I’d say I’m 98% hair-free. It’s changed my life, really changed my life for the better completely. I don’t have to panic now in the mornings”
Q: How did you find the treatments?
A: “I can feel a little bit of heat and that’s all, it’s not painful. It really is really quick, easy and pain-free”
Q: Aside from reduction in hair, what other benefits did you notice after using the device?
A: “I feel a lot more feminine and it’s giving my skin a softer feel. I don’t feel so manly, I don’t have that shadow growing back. When I’m touching it, it doesn’t feel like me. It was always so rough, even after shaving it was so rough all the time. The hair would grow back straight away. It doesn’t feel like me at all.”
