Weight Loss And Chin Hair
A myPCOSteam Member asked a question 💭

Best type of laser for chin hair and best weight loss treatment? I have tried a normal laser and it didnt work and i have tried contrave and it worked but once you get off you can have weight gain. I am taking metformin and that helps.
