I have excess hair growth on my upper lip and chin due to PCOS. I also have severe hyperpigmentation on my upper lip from excessive tweezing/threading. I believe the hyperpigmentation is the result of constant inflammation from daily plucking. I am East Indian with PCOS.
I have been told that the hyperpigmentation may clear once the hair has been permanently removed. I pray that it does (I did not do anything about the pigmentation b/c I thought it was melasma the whole 2 years of it being there).
Which method is the best to effectively and quickly remove course hair for one who has PCOS? I have sensitive skin.
I found an electrologist that uses both blend or flash. I read that blend is safer although slower. Which should I use for my hyperpigmented upper lip?
Also, should I ask to start with clearances and continue them throughout treatment? I would really like to be rid of the hair as soon as possible. I am so depressed over this and have stopped living a normal life.
Any advice would be appreciated.
