Hi I’m new here and could use some help.
I’ve had a disproportionatly heavy mustache since I was in HS. I’m now 24 and even when shaven the black shadow remains. I’ve had done laser treatments 5 times(staggered, not consecutively) with little help. The first 3 removed the hair for a couple weeks before it would come back(red and swollen for a week). For the next 2 I had to go to a new place with a different type of laser. This one did nothing. Every time my upper lip would be painful, swollen and red as hell for at least a week. And I could not shave the hair that came back during that time thus making me a hermit.
I understand my laser removal would have worked better had I had it done on a schedule. But my schedule does not allow for a week of downtime every month.
I’ve read of electrolysis. Is this a better alternative? Any advice at all?
