HEALTH CARE – COSMETIC SOLUTIONS FOR PCOS SYMPTOMS
PCOS or Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome is not merely a disorder, rather a condition – a condition that healthy women dread. This is because PCOS is not just about the physical symptoms but also about the drastic cosmetic changes in a woman’s body that result with this syndrome.
PCOS is often accompanied with symptoms like severe acne, male pattern of hair growth, hair loss, darkening of skin in patches, skin tags and many more. No wonder then that for many women, learning that they have PCOS is shattering. I have myself observed this fact with a lot of my friends and their daughters who suffer from PCOS. What starts as a medical diagnosis, with the onset of the cosmetic symptoms, follows a plethora of emotional upheavals like embarrassment, irritation, guilt, and a sense of helplessness that affects their self esteem.
Although I have extensively spoken on this subject in my show (http://theumashow.com/health-care-pcos/), this time I wanted to focus purely on dealing with the cosmetic changes that accompany PCOS. This led me to have a chat with Dr.Moutusi Audhya, Dermatologist from Aster Clinic and Hospital specifically to discuss ways to deal with the cosmetic distress of PCOS.
My discussion with Dr.Moutusi definitely gives a ray of hope to millions of women around the world. Here are a few pointers from my discussion with Dr.Moutusi
– Acne management can be achieved using both medical as also cosmetic interventions. But what matters more is the post acne management as scars and marks can affect confidence and social life.
– Darkening of skin folds can be managed by both lightening creams as also cosmetic procedures.
– Hirsutism or unwanted pattern of male hair growth can be treated with the break through laser treatment, which has come as a huge relief to millions of women around the world.
– And last but not the least, although a lot of women are wary of cosmetic interventions, they are surely one of the most effective ways of overcoming the physiological changes with proper guidance.
Thankfully, there has been a steady rise in the awareness about PCOS and its sociological symptoms. A lot of women, and most importantly a lot of celebrities have actually come out in the open and discussed their issues and the ways to tackle them. Nobody can deny the medical aspects that accompany PCOS, however, modern medical science and more importantly such stories, definitely give a boost to one’s self confidence in better managing of PCOS. As someone has rightly said…’When you focus on problems, you’ll have more problems. When you focus on possibilities, you’ll have more opportunities’.
