Facial Hair!! 😭😣

Facial Hair!! 😭😣

Im getting so frustrated ladies, its horrible. Im not shaving every other day because the facial hair is growing back so fast. Laser removal is too expensive. Waxing does not work and Nair does not work. Is there anyone out there who have tried to anything prescribed by their doctor? I’m at the end of my rope here and super self conscious lately.

I have the same issue. I did laser for almost a year in a half and it did almost nothing. Spent thousands. Later found out that it’s because of my hormones. If Your hormones aren’t regulated then it will just keep coming back. Don’t spend all the money if you don’t have to! I had to learn the hard way. Now I just pluck everyday 😩

Hi there, your frustration is completely valid, and I 100% feel you.
I’ve found some great Groupon deals for laser hair removal (just be sure to research the facility & reviews on unbiased sites to ensure they’re reputable) and, if you’re able to save up, there are also some great at-home devices that you can purchase and use to treat yourself.
Again, please read the reviews carefully before you purchase anything and be sure that you make sure anything treatment you’re planning to try in office or at home is safe for brown/highly melanated skin before you commit.
Also, ask your dr. about Vaniqa; if your insurance covers it, that’s a way to slow/eliminate growth of facial hair using a cream AM & PM.
Here’s a good article I found to be helpful recently:

Best of luck, you’re beautiful, and you’re not alone. ❤️
