I’ve Never Been Happier
“All my life I struggled with facial hair. It was so bad I had to pluck/shave every day, sometimes twice a day. It got so bad that I never wanted to be outdoors. If the sun was out, I was in doors. I was so insecure and worried I may have missed a hair. I didn’t want anyone knowing that I had to pluck/shave. I didn’t want anyone seeing me. So I stayed away from people. I felt so ugly and I hated myself.
I didn’t know why I had so much facial hair. I never talked about it with anyone because I didn’t want anyone knowing. After years of dealing with it I got tired of it and went to the doctor. At the age of 23 I was diagnosed with PCOS (Polycystic ovarian syndrome). I cried and cried. I didn’t understand what it was and why I had it. I got so depressed. I felt like I wasn’t normal. I just wanted to be normal like other girls. I didn’t want facial hair.
I was told I could get hormone pills and that the pills would help stop the hair growth; they never helped. Nothing changed. So I gave up and thought this is just my life, there is nothing I can do about it. PCOS wasn’t really known. No one talked about it. At the age of 30 I became a member of a PCOS support group on Facebook. I saw all the stories of the women on there and a weight was lifted off my chest. I was so happy that I wasn’t the only one dealing with this. I started reading what others said they had done to help the hair growth. Eating healthy was one of them. I was overweight, so I decided to start working out and start eating healthy. In 6 months I lost 30 pounds and nothing… still the same. So I read more. Some women had gotten laser hair removal and it worked. I was skeptical but I decided to go in and have a consultation. I was so nervous and scared. I didn’t want people judging me, but I had tried everything and nothing worked. I was tired of it so I went [to American Laser Med Spa]. Everyone was so nice. I never felt pressured or judged. I knew it would take awhile to see improvement, but I saw an improvement in growth two months in. I was ecstatic!
I’ve never been happier in my life. My life has changed so much and I owe it all to [American Laser Med Spa]. I am 34 years old now and a new Real Estate Agent. I have more friends than I ever had because I get out there and no longer seclude myself.”
