Are you struggling with the challenges of Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS)? At Skin Cosmetics London, we understand the particular struggles that come with this condition, especially the issue of excessive, unwanted hair growth, known as hirsutism. Our cutting-edge laser hair removal treatments could be the solution you’re seeking.
PCOS, a hormonal disorder, can often lead to increased hair growth due to an excess of androgens, or male hormones. This can result in thicker, darker hair in areas typically associated with male hair patterns, like the face, back, and chest. Understandably, this can take a significant toll on your self-esteem and quality of life.
Laser hair removal has proven to be a highly effective and long-term solution for many people with PCOS. This process works by targeting the melanin in hair follicles with concentrated light, which is converted to heat. This heat then damages the follicle, inhibiting future hair growth without affecting the surrounding skin. The end result is smoother, hair-free skin that can last for months, even years, depending on individual hair growth cycles.
At Skin Cosmetics London, we use state-of-the-art laser technology, handled by our expertly trained clinicians. We personalize each treatment according to your specific skin type and hair characteristics, ensuring the best possible results. It’s important to note that multiple sessions are typically required to catch the hair in its different growth phases.
Embarking on a journey of laser hair removal can provide immense relief for those dealing with PCOS-related hirsutism. Beyond the physical benefits, it can significantly improve emotional well-being, freeing you from the routine and discomfort of constant shaving, plucking, or waxing.
We know that dealing with PCOS can be challenging, but we’re here to offer support and solutions. Our friendly and compassionate team will guide you through every step of the process, answering all your questions and addressing any concerns. We provide a safe, welcoming environment where your comfort is our top priority.
At Skin Cosmetics London, our aim is to help you reclaim control over your body and boost your self-confidence. We believe everyone deserves to feel beautiful and comfortable in their own skin.
Ready to begin your journey towards smoother, hair-free skin? Book a consultation with us today and let us help you manage your PCOS in a way that best suits your lifestyle. Skin Cosmetics London – where science meets beauty, and you meet a new level of self-confidence.

What is skin health?
Odds are you’ve heard of the term skin care, but there’s way more to healthy skin than what’s on the surface. Just like overall wellness, skin health isn’t determined by just one or two factors – it’s the combination of things you do every day, from what you put on your skin to what you put in your body.
- 90% of skin damage is caused by sun exposure
- 81% of people have experienced a skin problem
- The body produces 1% less collagen each year of life
Why is skin health so important?
Your skin is one of the largest organs in your body – and definitely the most exposed. There are tons of factors that can lead to damaged skin, which can eventually take a toll on your emotional health. Rather than covering up those imperfections, we believe that focusing on the underlying causes is the best way to get skin that truly glows. And that holistic approach to skin health can lead to a happier, healthier you.
what we do
Treatment Step by Step
This step is going to increase lymphatic circulation in your skin. Better lymphatic circulation not only helps move out toxins but also increases blood flow, providing extra oxygen to invigorate the skin. The skin is hydrated and supported by fresh lymph, restoring tone and firmness.
Cleansing and Exfoliation
A vacuum-based abrasion tip will gently smooth away dead skin cells while delivering serum directly to the fresh new skin beneath. This serum is brimming with ingredients to revitalise and support your skin, such as lactic acid, glucosamine, antioxidants, and botanical extracts, all of which are customised to treat your skin’s needs.
Now that pore-blocking old skin cells have been swept away, a glycolic and salicylic solution is applied to gently break up congestion in the pores. This will brighten your skin and at the same time prep the pores for the next step.
Unlike many facials, the extraction process is very gentle. Salicylic acid and honey are used to draw out blackheads and other impurities. This is an important step to ensure your pores are clean and able to benefit from the tightening effects of the treatment.
Now that your pores are clear and dead skin cells have been removed, your fresh new skin is ready to be treated. This step nourishes your skin and drenches it in moisture, with a mix of potent antioxidants, hyaluronic acid, and peptides and multi-peptides to support collagen.
This step will leave your skin soft and plump with moisture, combating the appearance of wrinkles.
Finally, red and infrared LED light is applied. This will soothe your skin, reducing redness, and stimulate the production of collagen. It even helps your skin naturally produce vitamin D. You will be left with skin that feels soft, smooth, and invigorated.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is hydrafacial?
HydraFacial is a multi-step treatment that uses patented technology to cleanse, exfoliate, extract and treat the skin. During the treatment dead skin cells and impurities are removed and the skin is hydrated with antioxidants & peptides. Unlike other treatments, HydraFacial can be had as often as weekly or monthly to achieve a fast and long lasting result.
What steps are involved in hydrafacial treatment?
- DETOX: The first step performed is a lymphatic drainage, whereby the circulation of the lymphatic system is increased, therefore improving blood flow to the skin, as well as the elimination of toxins.
- CLEANSING & EXFOLIATION: Dead skin cells (as well as other impurities) are gently exfoliated to reveal healthy, new skin. This is followed by the application of a serum containing salicylic acid.
- EXTRACTION: water-assisted suction removes blackheads as well as impurities found in the skin. This is assisted by a specially formulated serum.
- HYDRATION: A hydrating mixture replenishes and hydrates the treated skin.
- REJUVENATION: LED light will help to stimulate collagen (increasing skin fullness and firmness). It will also reduce redness and stimulate vitamin D production for a healthy, summery glow.
How does hydrafacial work?
HydraFacial treatment works by targeting the lymphatic system of the patient. This is because our lymphatic system regulates fluid levels and gets rid of toxins from the surrounding environment.
The fluid inside this lympathic system is called lymph, and it can become contaminated and impure over time, causing our skin to look and feel worse. HydraFacials extract unwanted waste from the lymph, draw essential moisture to the surface of the skin, and replace any toxins with healthy ingredients.
Why should i use hydrafacial?
A free, no-obligation consultation is given where we check your suitability for the procedure and assess your requirements so that we can provide a solution for you.
This includes a skin assessment. We then discuss realistic results and any other relevant information
Who is suitable for hydrafacial?
Generally speaking, Hydrafacial is suitable for all age groups and skin types. A form will be filled out at your consultation to rule out any conditions that may make you unsuitable.
What results can i expect to see?
In several published studies conducted by leading U.S. plastic surgeon Bruce M. Freedman, MD, FACS, author of over 40 publications in medical journals and textbooks, the HydraFacial hydradermabrasion technology was clinically proven to be effective for facial rejuvenation. In particular, Dr. Freedman studied polyphenolic antioxidant levels within the skin and how hydra-dermabrasion compares to other skin rejuvenation procedures.
How long will the results last?
As HydraFacials help to replenish the skin, we would recommend a course of monthly maintenance treatments to keep skin in tip-top condition
