Electrolysis will permanently eliminate any hair permanently, however it can not prevent new growths occuring. I have treated many PCOS cases, and the worst case scenario is that if their hormone issues are not fully addressed, they need maintenance treatments long term. One case comes to mind, I treat her a few times anually for 15 minutes. Sometimes she needs monthly and other times she can go for 3 to 4 months, it depends on what her hormones are doing at that time.

I dont know very much about this medication, perhaps someone else can help. Are you currently having electrolysis? Have you tweezed in the past?

Hi,,
Electrolysis can sometimes be permanent,but only if you get your hormones totally into the normal female range. You run a serious risk of scarring and skin discoloration.

Sprinolactone works by lowering the androgen levels ( hormones e.gtestosterone both female and males have)Androgens are responsible for hair growth that women with PCOS have. Sprinolactone can take up to 6 months to see an improvement in s.
symptoms.

Sorry Aarav, I have to disagree. Electrolysis is always permanent if done by a skilled electrologist and you run a risk in scarring and discoloration if electrolysis is being done by an unskilled electrologist.

As Christine said electrolysis will always permanently eliminate new hairs but cannot stop new hairs growing.

That poster is wrong. With correctly performed electrolysis, it is permanent.
