Unhappy personal and embarrassing

i don't know if this has been discussed before . but i figured i'd post as it's embarrassing. does anyone have/or had facial hair due to weight/hormones/heredity etc? and if so how did you get rid of it/cover it up? or does anyone know of a way to make it stop? Thanks!

My sister did.....she had a terrible case of it. She went to the dermatologist who prescribed some creams (to take away the spots that came up as a result of her constantly plucking the hair) and she also did some laser treatments. I couldnt believe it when I saw her....the hair and the ugly spots are all gone. And she is now down to 1 visit per year.

I'm an extremely fair skinned brunette who grows hair everywhere. Tried every OTC solution over the years, then spent even more years plucking and shaving face daily because I was just too scared to try laser and/or electrolysis. Finally in my mid 40s I learned the facial hair situation likely to get worse after menopause so I sucked it up and tried both electrolysis and laser. Both are painful, but for me the individual zaps of electrolysis is something I can take, while the "big zap" of laser was not. Very, very, happy with the results.

Sorry
The long ones (like from a mole) I pluck.
For the jaw line, upper lip, I use a OTC wax strip, like this:


I get it a Sally's Beauty Supply.

It only stings a little. I hate it, but I've been doing it for years. Usually every 6-8 weeks.

Good luck!

Yup, I have some facial hair, mostly due to my PCOS. I pluck - though I am always looking for a better solution!

I have this problem just because of heredity, i hate getting my eyebrows waxed because then i jear seconds later "you want lip wax?" ugghh i use Avons hair removal cream, its not made of the face but if you use it for about2 mins then put on a nice thick layer of moisturizer afterwards it works great, test it on your skin first though since different people react differently to certain products

My sister used to have it really bad. Then she got electrolysis. The results were really positive! She looks great! For me, I used to grow this ONE THICK HAIR on my chin. It looked like a pube. It was awful. AND...I had the same one on my chest, just ONE SINGLE HAIR that grew overnight like mushrooms do. I'd pluck it, and it would be back the next day. It was the weirdest thing ever. Anyway...long story short, after I met my healthy weight, both hairs just disappeared. Whew!

Electrolysis. I have never regretted getting it done.

thanks ladies! i'm going to find out about electrolysis. it's very embarrassing and i've tried everything. i feel like i spend a lot of time (and $$) but don't seem to be making any progress. and every little bit helps when it comes to feeling better about yourself!

I pluck them. Constantly. Looking forward to getting rid of them as the weight comes off.

Such a bummer that we get hair where we don't want it. As if we didn't have enough other things to worry about, right?

I'm a huge fan of laser hair removal and can't say enough good things about it (make sure to get the numbing cream first though). I didn't have it on my face but I went from getting 5 o'clock shadow on my legs to never needing to shave my underarms, bikini line or legs again. It's WONDERFUL! I've heard they have some newish lotions out with hair growth suppressant in them - here's a link to one but I haven't tried it myself, just heard good things from friends. http://www.amazon.com/Aveeno-Positiv...owViewpoints=1

Good luck!

I've thought about electrolosis.. I get my upper lip and eye brows waxed. If I wait too long for my lip my DH calls me "moustachio". Butthead. LOL

how much does the electrolysis cost (lets say, just upper lip for starters)? do you just go to a salon or is it a doctor thing?

oh... and I wax and use an epilator thing, but they don't remove the hair that's just growing in and too short to grab.
