Hey, I’m a 16yr old girl and hair removal has alway been a nightmare for me. I can’t wax my bikini line or under my arms without the hair follicles bleeding and scarring. I’ve tried getting it done professionally but the scars just get worse and worse with each time. I have to shave under my arms now but it still scars. I don’t want to shave my bikini line, but I need to do something and it’s the only option I have even though it’s still making things pretty bad. I don’t use any sort of products that would irritate my skin, and if I get ingrown hairs I just leave them, so I can’t work out why it gets so bad.
With my legs, waxing seems to work better than shaving but I get little bumps all over the back of my thighs. I get ingrown hairs which I leave alone, but my hair follicles also seem to get really infected and it looks awful.
I thought that perhaps laser surgery, although it’s expensive, could fix this problem. If it’s going to discourage the hair from growing back and thin it out then maybe it’s the right decision. Has anyone got any thoughts on this? Is it the right way to go or not? What sort of laser surgery should I be looking at? I have dark hair and olive skin and am looking to get rid of the hair on at least my bikini line and under my arms.
