I have had three Lyra laser treatments on my upper lip (the last was in March 2003) and I seem to have a “5 o’clock” shadow" that does not go away. I had the treatment done by an MD and am sure he is very experienced. I have olive skin and dark hair and tan easily (i noticed it gets worse when I tan). Is there anything I can do? Is this permanent? I used to bleach the hair and never had a problem with that dreaded shadow. My doctor mentioned a prescription for bleach but I have very sensitive skin. I have tried makeup but cannot stand the way it looks. Any advice out there.
ps–thanks, Andrea…this website has been very helpful
