Hi. A few things about me before the post.
I’m 21 years old and I go to college. I have an issue with facial hair being that it grows out much too fast. I hate beards and goatees so you can imagine the problems this causes me. The main problem with this is the cost of shaving.
Typical cost per month
One pack of Mach 3 blades per week 10$
Shaving cream per month 5$
Per year this translates to about 540 dollars, and that’s not including the fact that sometimes 4 blade cartridges don’t last a whole week. Not to mention the fact that shaving adds about 25 minutes to my full shower and get ready routine.
I’m tired of it. I’ve looked into hair removal and electrolysis seems to be the way to go, but I’m a very picky shopper so I haven’t even gotten a first treatment, and I’ve been thinking about this for about 6 months now.
A few things - One, how bad will my face look during the first treatment healing? Two, I’ve been shaving for about 4 years with this growth, maybe 3, will this play any negative factor with my treatments? Three, How many treatments roughly would it take to take care of the facial hair on me if I have thick hair from repeated shaving?
I appreciate all the answers given and I hope this is a possible route for me, given the problems I go through just having this growth.
