I found this post on the electrolysis forum (it is further down)about a kind of “hairyness enzyme”.
Has anyone experienced hair becoming more coarse becuase of waxing? I’m thinking about start waxing my back hair becuase the hairs have become very fine now after 7 IPL-treatments, but they don’t get removed, just thinner and thinner. Could I make the hairs thick again by waxing it?
Here comes the post:
"Just a little addition to the Vaniqua talks, I got this from another forum:
Barbara Kieffer Greathouse of Topeka Kansas writes:
Some individuals have an enzyme in their skin that is like a magnet to their normal circulating hormones. These individuals will grow hair in these areas. The areas seem to follow the pattern of the Ferriman and Gallwey hirsutism rating scale. The individuals with this enzyme will have coarsening of hair with the irritation of waxing. Individuals without this enzyme will see less hair with waxing. The people with this enzyme are the people who will see a product like Vaniqa work - IF they use it consistently, however, they can spend the same money on electrology treatments and REALLY get rid of the hair.
It would also seem that other people with excess hair growth have it for other reasons - not necessarily related to the enzyme. So again, we are faced with mysterious reasons for hair growth."
