My 12 yo daughter is stoically undergoing electrolysis on her top lip. She’s determined to clear this area. Unfortunately for her there is a lot of hair on every part of her body. Ive posted about this for years. Its not improving with age which is what I used to tell myself would happen so that I didn’t worry myself sick over it.
Blood tests, drs appoints, endos = no answers.
In an ideal world she would like a hair free set of buttocks (I’m not joking), a hair free face and a belly button that didnt have a treasure trail running from it to down below. Arms, legs, feet - over caring about. Do you recall I said this poor girl was 12.
We are in New Zealand. There aren’t many choices for great electrologists here. We travel several hours to one in Auckland who is good but we can only go once a month and she is a very busy lady. An hour appointment once a month isn’t getting us anywhere.
Im at a complete loss as to what to do for her. She’s a beautiful, kind, caring, girl but its brutal out there. I could personally wring peoples necks when she comes home from school saying they call her moustache girl.
Laser is out. Im not prepared to risk making anything worse for her. Its light soft brown hair anyways. Birth control pills, spearmint tea, ??? Can anyone recommend this? Waxing, creaming, shaving - too temporary. This hair grows fast. Also she gets bumps and rashes so Im guessing these aren’t going to be good for her.
I desperately wanted to learn electrolysis in order to help her but my youngest got type 1 diabetes as I was putting pen to paper to enrol overseas in a course and I can’t/won’t leave her now.
Im not sure why Im writing this really. Theres no answers but Im just so upset for her.
If any great electrologists are ever in New Zealand looking for a home, bring your machine and you can stay with us as long as you like!
