What is PCOS?


Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a common condition that affects the function of the ovaries.

It is related to fluctuations in hormone levels from increased production and activity in the body and can cause problems such as increased hair growth on the body and face, oily skin or acne on the face, chest and back, skin tags or skin pigmentation.

Although PCOS can often run in families, lifestyle changes in diet and exercise and medication may be able to help with symptoms while intense pulsed light (IPL) laser hair removal treatments can help reduce and remove unwanted hair.

Sun spots, liver spots and freckles are examples of unwanted pigmentation and are often associated with skin ageing, or over exposure to the sun or sunbeds.
