Body hair on woman keeps increasing! Help, what can I do? (Photo)

hi, i am 21, woman and as the years go by my body hair keeps getting more and darker. last year i checked my testosterone's levels, and my doc said they are regular. but to this point its getting hard to handle, i am NEVER soft, even if i wax i still have hair, i have dark hair on my belly and butt, under the chin, nipples, if i use a razor it grows back in a few hours, and just to make things worse i have extremely clear skin. what can i do? laser is not an option

Laser Hair Removal

I think you are a good candidate for laser hair removal. Laser treatment works best on dark and thick hair. I recommend seeing an expert for in person evaluation.

Removing body hair

There really isn't any other choice long term hair removal other than laser. Electrolysis is an option for very small areas and is very slow and painful.

You said laser isn't an option, but three to six laser sessions would remove hair permanently.  Please see an expert for a formal evaluation. Best, Dr. Emer
