Ali You have already been given good advice. I can sense the desparation in your words. Make sure the desperation doesn’t make you do something you will regret.
Laser works best on very dark hair and very light skin.Unfortunately, your skin is darker than would be suitable for any amount of removal from laser. You might see some thinning of the hair ( and it looks like you have) but that honestly is the best that can be hoped for with laser.
Laser also can cause things like ingrown hair, and in some cases, hyper-pigmentation. Electrolysis too can cause hyper-pigmentation.Dee is quite right that your skin is on the severe side .
If you truly want the hair gone, then the most effective route is through electrolysis. The hyperpigmentation isnt going to disappear overnight, and 1 1/2 - 2 years is a reasonable estimate. But if you do the other things to take care of your skin ( reduce processed food, take vitamin E supplements, use Aloe vera on the skin ) then it will get better. There is a better than reasonable probability that the laser ( and plucking) caused a large amount of your existing hyper-pigmentation.
So PLEASE…dont pluck. Stick with your electrolysis sessions ( or move to a different practitioner if you really feel enough progress isnt being made) . It IS a slow process, but IT DOES work. You are likely looking in the area of 3 years total to remove the hair and allow the hair to return to normal, but only if you stick with the program, be nice to your skin, get the hair off, and allow the hyperpigmentation to heal and fade on it’s own.
I’m reminded of a conversationI had reently with one of the transgirls I work on . If you think you have hair issues, these girls have FUll beards. She says to me “I think my partner is going to get me some laser sessions from a groupon deal for christmas” . I turned to her and said “Dont waste your money! Just Stick with the electrolysis!”
You see this girl has light red hair. She would see ZERO improvement from laser. Even under ideal conditions, somefaces still dont react well to laser, and under less than ideal conditions, even less so. But the dysphoria of having hair, that’s a powerful thing. It gets to be all you can feel, all you think about, and all you see when you look in the mirror. It can make you make choices, that are not in the best interest of removing it or correcting the problem.You look for the “quick fix” and often, that search leads to laser. In a case like yours however you would likely be making the problem WORSE not better.
If you do EXACTLY as Dee and others have suggested to you, get the hai removed with electrolysis ( a year and a half process) and let the skin rejuvenate on it’s own ( another 1-2 years) then the problem WILL be gone forever. Dont let the dysphoria over the hair, and the desparation, be your guide. Let the advice from the professionals guide you.
