I am a black male getting electrolysis on my beard area. Most of the hair is gone. However a few remain especially on the cheek areas. These hairs are black however very light. Not as thick and coarse as when I first started. My electrologist is having a problem seeing these hairs. Apparently my skin tone (brown) and the black hair color is making them difficult to see. When I stand in front of a mirror they are very easy to see.
Her suggestion is I may just have to live with them. The problem is the reason why I took this step was because I suffered from really, really bad ingrown hairs. Really bad. Thanks to laser and electrolysis I have not seen any bumps in a while. However when I decided to shave these light hairs I got a couple of big bumps.
I am wondering if any electrologist here has worked on black male facial hair and what advise do you have for me? Should I just get as much of the light hairs and live with the rest? Is there no way these hairs can be seen and removed? It looks kind of strange with most of the hairs gone and these few remaining. If I had known this was the endgame I probably would have chosen thinning.
