Hi, My name is Maria and I am 21 years old. I have MAJOR hair problem becase I have hormone problems. And I am afraid that I will stay virgin for the rest of my life because I am so ashamed. My gynecologist has recommended me do electrolysis instead of laser treatmen. can u tell me why? By the way,I have light skin but dark hair and very noticeable. Eventhough, this site has helped me a lot, I want to have a one on one with the specialist in laser or electrolysis treatment. So if you have anyone in mind (Richmond area) please share. Thank you so much!

Since your physician has recommended electrolysis, I will assume she or he has a reason based on a physical examination and knowledge of your unique circumstances. Women with hormonal issues often seek permanent results, and electrolysis when properly performed has a longer track record of reliable permanent hair removal.

However, both laser and electrolysis do have women who don’t respond to treatment, and these non-responders are more likely to have a hormonal imbalance. you will need to work closely with your doctor and a very experienced hair removal pracitioner to manage your condition.

The most important thing is to choose a practitioner after a lot of homework.

Remember that millions of other women are dealing with the same problems, and there are many on these boards who have been able to get their unwanted hair under control. It’s going to be a little harder for you than it will for others, but you always have a place here for support and answers! :smile:

Hi Maria, you can also try asking your doctor if she can recommend someone to perform your electrolysis…she probably has heard informal “reviews” from her other patients…shoot, she might have someone that she sees for herself :wink:

Good luck!
