Any Advise For Subduing Or Getting Rid Of Hirsutism?
A myPCOSteam Member asked a question 💭

My hormones are balanced but I still deal with hirsutism on a daily basis. So much so that I shave (my face) every day, if not twice a day.

I've been seeing an electrologist for many years. She does a treatment called electrolysis. It is the only permanent solution. IT WORKS!!!! Having a face full of hair since I was 9 years old was emotional, and it robbed me of self confidence. I waxed, I shaved, did laser treatments which stimulated more hair to grow. Left me in tears and I wanted to hide. Patti helped me, and it did take a while and was a commitment, I kept with it and today, I only get a few strays which I cut with small sizzors until I can get an another appointment. Electrolysis has helped me not to have to worry about stubble or ingrown hairs and I hardly wear foundation anymore. Thank the Lord for electrolysis.

Rosewater helps ingrown hairs. You can find it on e-bay or Amazon or maybe Whole food's ( or any natural store). Or try something called Skin-tight. It helps to clear up ingrown hairs. It comes in regular or extra strength formulas. I have to use the extra strength(because of how coarse my hair grows🙈) but I would recommend trying the regular strength first. You can Google it to see where you can order it. But it either one works!!!

I did over a year of electrolysis with no improvement. Did a 6-treatment round of laser and had 95% reduction in facial hair. Highly recommend!
