My name is Mandy and I am folically challenged. I have always had peach fuzz on my face and it wasn’t until around my high school days that I became self-conscious about it. My mother and I did our research and agreed to let me be the first to give laser a try. I was so nieve back then. We went to a reputable plastic surgeon but all of his promises didn’t deliver. I was told to shave the almost non-existant facial hair I had which left me with more hair and acne due to the stress and embarrassment. Well, 6 years, countless hours spent waxing,tweezing later my problem worsened 10-fold the hair is thicker,darker,and in more places. I have had every test done in the past year to try & diagnose PCOS but they all come up OK? I am currently taking Aldactone and my PCP recently gave me Glucophage because she wasn’t happy with the results of the Aldactone therapy.The Glucophage made me nautios so I stopped taking it. I have an appoinment with a local laser center on 6-20 and I am very skeptical as to it’s effectiveness on me now. Can anyone relate? My hair is mostly on my chin and my lip and it is embarrassing, I’m only 24. I shouldn’t have to deal with this yet!!
