Electrolysis is permanent on hairs that we can presently see. We have no control over new hairs that may start to grow in the future. Medications, stress and genetics can stimulate hair follicles that were not a problem in January of 2010, to start growing hair in May of 2011. It's a major bummer, but it can happen to some. You just have to keep up with the new growth if this happens to you.

It is not w waste of money. You are disabling hair follicles for life. Maybe you will run out of follicles that nutures hair at some point.

Dee has explained it well. This is what I wrote in another thread recently:

"As for the PCOS, birth control can help with the hair but it can take a while to find the one that works. This is something your doctor may discuss with you. From what I know from others with the condition, it only works as long as you take it; it does not 'fix' the situation permanently.
Many women find that going on a low carb/G.I diet (as for type II diabetics) they lose the weight associated with PCOS and the hair situation improves. There is a lot of information on the internet about PCOS and the wikipedia page is a good place to start to understand it.

However, this should not mean you cannot remove the hair you have now. A skilled electrologist can rid you of all this hair. The only 'problem' may be that you need some short treatments every year after to remove new hairs caused by the hormonal stimulation."

This past week I was surprised by a sneak attack. I was so disappointed for my client. Actually, I said to myself, "Holy crap, where did this hair come from!" For the last several treatments, my client, who had originally presented with very coarse white, red, and dark hair and some skin damage from shaving, was looking fabulous and I was close to declaring her "finished". Well, this past Friday she comes in after about six weeks and yes there were the usual few thick blond, red and dark hairs present scattered about, but I was shocked to see areas of light fine, long hair present on the jowl area, neck and sides of face. The root structures were revving up and were looking very hearty. New growth. So frustrating. She told me that she had to go off her birth control pills two months ago.

The good news for her is, I can get these hairs and knock the life out of them for good, but she won't fall in to the 9-18 month category for being "finished" if the hair keeps coming.

James just posted these words on another thread, but it pertains to this case, so I grabbed it for this thread:

"At school, they told us that the average person has 1,000 follicles per square inch. However, that does not mean one grows 1,000 hairs. Where a man may have 100, to 500 visible hairs in a square inch, a woman may have 0 to 25. A woman would certainly think she has a problem at 5 hairs per square inch, but she must understand that hormonal problems work in such a way as to recruit new follicles to start growing hair, when they never grew hair before. The severity of the problem defines how long it takes for new follicles to be recruited, and how many at a time are stimulated in that term. So, until one arrests the problem that is causing the new hair recruitment, one will continuously gain new hairs.

What this has to do with electrolysis is that while we can remove the visible hairs you now have, (which took years to accumulate into a noticeable problem for most) one's particular hair problem could be recruiting 3 new follicles to start growing hair for the first time once every 6 months. If we go back to that 1,000 hairs per square inch thing, at 3 new hairs, every six months, it would take over 111 years to fill in that 1,000 follicle square inch patch with 1,000 hairs per square inch.

So, if you get electrolysis now, and you get clear ( a 9 to 18 month process, assuming you have full clearances each and every time) then you would only have to work on what ever new hairs come up, on the schedule that new hairs are coming in. If that is 3 hairs per square inch, per 6 months, then one would be having a 15 to 30 minute appointment, twice a year, once one got caught up to the hair growth, ASSUMING you did NOT stop what ever was causing you to continue to recruit new hairs."

The change in hormonal levels brought on by the cessation of the Birth Control Pills (as would the beginning of taking them) has lead to the hair growth problem, and once she levels off, she should stop growing new ones. That is unless she also is using artificial sweeteners, and is growing hairs due to the sensitivity to those as well.
