i have fair, sensitive skin (fair w/ freckles, brown hair. i also have hair on/above my upper lip. it’s not terribly dark, but it’s noticeable because my skin is so fair, and it’s kind of long (more than just peach fuzz).
lately, for the past few months, i have been bleaching it. i used to wax it but my skin is so sensitive that it would cause irritation (even when done professionally) that lasted more than just a few hours. plus it grows back kind of stubbly.
bleaching it works ok, but now it only seems to last a few days to a week at most. plus, because my skin is so fair, bleaching makes the hair look yellow - so it almost stands out more.
i am considering electrolysis, but i have some questions.
because of my sensitive skin, will electrolysis cause scarring or a reaction?
about how much could i anticipate spending per treatment, and how many treatments are usually necessary (i know that it can be up to a year)?
if i am not a good candidate for electrolysis, what other methods might be better?
i tried electrolysis several years ago on some stomach hairs and had ok results (i didn’t go for a long enough time b/c i was an impatient teenager). some hairs are gone, some i still pluck. my skin was always red and bumpy afterward at least until the next day. and i found it to be very painful, but not excrutiating.
any help anyone could provide would be greatly appreciated!
