Hi. My first post. First I just wanted to say thanks to LAGirl. Your guide and diary have been great. Also thanks to the makers of this site. Ok, I am a 25 year old male. Half asian, half black. As I’ve gotten older, my facial hair has gotten thicker and fuller. For the past 3 years I’ve been getting severely ingrown hairs. It’s an actual condition apparently. The hair grows kinda into the skin, and gets infected. The infeted spots turn into huge red bumps. The skin is swollen and soft, and that affects the hairs around it. It’s getting bad. At any one time I’ll have at least two scarring wounds on my face. The last few weeks I was treating 4. Anyway, I am contemplating laser hair removal. I’ve set up an appointment at a local dermatologist. But I’m wondering what people who’ve had the treatment have to say about it. I have a picture of myself up on the net, so you can actually see my skin type and hair type since I’m unsure. I think it’s type 3. My hair is brown, and some of them - like 2 or 3 per 30 or 40, are weird redish/clear. Well, any input would be great. In the picture you can see some wounding from finer hairs up higher on the beard line that form tiny bumps. Of course, in my neurosis I try to pick them and it gets bad. One thing I thought of too was that I am losing some hair on my head. Seems kinda funny I want to permanently remove some hair, yet save others. Anyway, I might look into hairloss treatment as well, many of the effective treatments promote growth in other places as well as the head. So, I wonder if I were to get lhr on my face, then later started a hair loss treatment plan, if my facial hair would come back. ?
