I’ve had stubborn hair growing on my chin and front of my neck for years now. I got myself checked out, and my hormone levels are fine, so it’s just the luck of genetics. My chin has had courser hair, my neck is a little softer but there’s still a lot that makes it visible. My upper lip’s hair is soft but darker. My dermatologist recommended laser hair removal, and I had three sessions, which I think reduced it a bit. But the problem is a lot of hair that’s left is light brown/blond, so the laser can’t target it.
Now I’m looking into electrolysis, although my dermatologist doesn’t seem too keen on it. She said she’s seen lots of examples of scarring patients, and she couldn’t recommend any particular places to get it done in Toronto.
So I’m wondering if anyone has had any good experiences at places in Toronto? I’m on a pretty tight budget, which doesn’t help, but I just want to be rid of this hair. I’m sick of feeling “stubble” on my chin.
(I’ve been trimming the hairs very closely since July, but before that I plucked my chin and neck like crazy.)
If anyone has any recommendations for getting electrolysis in Toronto, I’d appreciate it.
Also, I’m a little worried about after-effects. With laser treatment, my face would be red for about a half hour, then was fine. Will I bleed or anything with electrolysis? Or does it just irritate your skin like laser? And are there any questions I should ask a place to make sure it’s good?
