Best treatment for unwanted facial hair?

  • 8 years ago

I have facial hair and it is very upsetting to me.

I have done electrolysis, shaving, waxing, bleaching, creams, medications, and laser hair removal. I did the laser treatments about five years ago and had absolutely no success.

Actually the condition has gotten worse. I am aware of a hormone imbalance that I have due to thyroid problems and female problems. I've seen at least a dozen different doctors and nobody seems to have the time or wants to care to research my case- which I'm sure there is a simple cure if a somebody just cared enough to help me.

I'm now waxing 3-4 times a week with tweezing in between. I'm at the end of my rope and I need help!!!! Can you please give me any suggestions on where I should go, who I should see, or what I should do? PLEASE HELP. Is laser something I should think about doing again?

I suggest you look at a product called Kalo. It is like Vaniqa but it works for all body hair not just facial hair. It works after waxing or laser

wow. that sounds too good to be true. Just looked it up and the quote on their website "We also don't want your hair removal cream secret to be out in the open. We only distribute it amongst those men and women who actually need it." is frankly quite dodgy. But I think it may be worth a try? Has anyone else tried it? How long did it take you, Mary, to permanently remove your hair?

Although this question is from two years ago, the concern is never outdated. In fact, facial hair for women is quite common and is one of the most commonly treated areas for laser hair reduction. Needless to say, this condition has an emotional impact on us women. Although the it was indicated that lasers were used several years ago, there may be a few reasons why one would not receive good outcomes. First and foremost, the right technology makes all of the difference because not all lasers are appropriate or safe for all skin types. The technology has changed and improved greatly over the last several years. Secondly, this person may have been treated with subtherapuetic settings which will greatly hinder results. As mentioned, hormonal levels will influence hair growth and response to treatment; however, current research supports that laser hair reduction is still the best option even for those diagnosed with conditions such as polycystic ovarian disease. Finding the right treatment program combined with trained, licensed professionals should help you achieve your goals. Keep in mind, a 70% reduction in hair is considered good, average results. L.
