Electrolysis and PCOS

I am honored to have had the opportunity to write a guest post on electrolysis for Amy Medling of the PCOS Diva. Her site is a great resource of information for women dealing with Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS.)

PCOS is a hormonal imbalance that can affect a woman’s body in a variety of upsetting ways such as excessive hair growth, infertility, weight gain and more.  It is the most common endrocine disorder in women.

  1. What a wonderfully informative article, Lori. I loved how you included the emotional impact of unwanted hair growth and how devastating that is for women, particularly those who already struggle with low self esteem. Thank you for the practical information, this especially: “Please note that your choice of an electrologist is paramount to your success. Search for a caring professional with years of experience that is passionate about helping you.” I will bookmark this article and pass it on to my clients.

  2. Lori I really appreciate your holistic approach to this very personal topic. Nice to see women like you leading the way in a supportive and gentle way.

    1. Dana, I feel blessed to be in a career that has helped women to feel better about themselves with regard to self-esteem and self-confidence.

  3. This is such an issue for so many women (young & old). You handle the information in an experienced CARING way. How lucky that your clients have you to help them to gain confidence. I only wish you worked closer to me!!
    Thank you for the great information, Lori.

    1. Thank you, Susie, for your kind comments. If you have any questions about hair removal that pertain to you or your daughter, I would be more than happy to give you guidance.

  4. Great article Lori. It takes a lot of courage to go to a person like you! It really is a humiliating and embarrassing problem for many women than we realise.
    Perhaps you can write an article on what it takes to have the courage to visit you – and then the freedom people when they leave? You can get stories from your clients! love to you and your work.
    P.S. Did I read that you can eradicate white hair?

    1. Deb, you’ve read my mind. I was just thinking today about reaching out to clients and asking them to share what electrolysis means to them. And yes, electrolysis can get rid of those annoying white hairs that women get!

  5. Congratulations on your guest post, Lori!

    This is a bit of a “hairy” subject, and you handle it with such grace and ease.

    I saw an electrologist in my 20s, and I remember feeling so embarrassed. But she was a sweetheart like you, and she soothed my nerves instantly. 🙂

  6. Thank you for a very helpful article. I have the added problem that my eyes aren’t as good and people see my hair before I do. I went to get my legs waxed and thought I was in good shape….I had my reading glasses on, saw my legs in good light and just about died of embarrassment. I had repeated laser treatments…on blonde hair. I didn’t know there was a permanent solution. It sounds like an excellent alternative. Thanks! ~Cathy

    1. I smiled as I read your comments. Many of clients visit my office for periodic “check-ups” to be certain that there are no embarrassing hairs showing up for others to see!
