Leader in Laser Hair Removal to Provide Free Services Each
Year to 100 Select Women with PCOS
TAMPA, Fla., Oct. 9, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Ideal Image, a leader in
America in laser hair removal and cosmetic medical services, today
announced the creation of the “Changing Lives Forever Foundation” to
support women throughout North America who live with Polycystic Ovary
Syndrome (PCOS) a condition that may cause excessive facial and body
hair growth. The Changing Lives Forever Foundation will provide
complimentary Ideal Image laser hair removal services to 100 women each
year, based on financial need.
PCOS is estimated to produce symptoms in 5 to 10 percent of women in
their reproductive years. Symptoms of PCOS can lead to emotional
distress, loss of self confidence and depression. Ideal Image and the
Changing Lives Forever Foundation will strive to help these women feel
confident, feminine and strong by enhancing their appearance with
complimentary laser hair removal services. The company will also follow
the journeys of these courageous 100 women and celebrate their
transformations and conquests over PCOS and excessive unwanted hair,
while capturing their experiences through video testimonials.
Ideal Image and the Changing Lives Forever Foundation will collaborate
with the National PCOS Foundation to select the candidates for this
yearly program. In addition, we will work with Hollywood and music
celebrities to help create public awareness of PCOS and excessive hair
growth, and the negative emotional consequences that these conditions
inflict on many women. Through these efforts, Ideal Image plans to help
make the Changing Lives Forever Foundation an industry leader in giving
back to the community.
“PCOS is the most common hormonal disorder among women of reproductive
age, and if left unchecked, is linked to serious health issues
including infertility, type 2 diabetes, heart disease and others,”
according to PCOS expert and author of The PCOS Diet Plan, Hillary
Wright, M. Ed., RD. “As serious as the detrimental health consequences
can be, these women also pay a heavy price in self esteem, as they
often suffer dramatic changes in their physical appearance with
excessive facial and body hair, weight gain and acne. For these women,
laser hair removal provides tremendous value and gives them a new lease
“The before and after stories of women with PCOS whose lives are
transformed through laser hair removal are truly amazing,” said Bruce
Fabel, Ideal Image President and the driving force behind the Changing
Lives Forever Foundation. “The return of their confidence and
self-esteem is palpable and truly life altering. We are proud and
excited to share these stories of hope across America to show women
suffering with PCOS that they can live their lives with confidence and
Ideal Image will begin its public awareness campaign regarding the
Changing Lives Forever Foundation this month through national media and
