I have struggled with facial hair for as long as I can remember. From waxing, bleaching, using facial creams and now plucking I have tried it all. Even though this is extremely difficult for me to talk about, at the age of 30 I am ready for a better solution. I have looked into IPL and thought I had made the best solution until I read what people had to say on this forum.
I found a plastic surgery center in my area that treats unwanted hair by IPL(Lumenis)and is administered by a doctor. I have a medium skin tone (skin type 5) with dark black facial hair. A consultation is scheduled for next week and I have requested a test patch before anymore appointments are made.
I was told that I must shave my face 4 weeks prior to the IPL, and stop all plucking. Is this common? What can I do to insure that I have a success story?
