Before I start to explain my bad experience with epilators, I want to warn everybody : Dont ever use it on your face !!!
Well,2 months ago, being desperate about my upper lip hair, I was searching what I could do and finally decided that I will buy the Braun 830 facial epilator,after reading numerous good reviews about it and mostly about how it eliminates the growth etc ( unfortunately I didn’t come across hairtell).
I really don’t know what I was thinking at that moment when I decided to use it in the rest of my face,because it was not working on my upper lip hair ( were too short).Maybe I thought lets make a test ! who knows?? I didn’t have any single problem with my facial hair, it was blonde unnoticeable fuzz,however, after being so sure that it will just remove the hair and it will grow back the same, I used it on my face. I even used it under my eyes and on forehead,seriously??Surely, I was out of my mind. I really now remember these blonde fine hair to fall down from the rotator and I am still trying to understand why I did such a thing!
I am only 24 years old and I am not having hormonal problems. As you understand more hair came back and of course not blonde! To make things worse,it also destroyed my skin with ingrowns,pigmentation and scars ,which I am still fighting and it seems I will fight for years. All these are happening now in between my exam period in the last year of university. Can you imagine ? I am so depressed and ashamed about it, after the hair came back and the skin problem,that I have lost so many hours from my studying ,thinking about it and researching about what to do. Another bad event is that I got lasered my upper lip and got hyperpigmentation. I know there are worse things in life, but there are moments I am thinking that I am destroyed!
I would like to ask you, will I ever find an electrologist that can work on my hair ? ? ?
I visited one in my region and declined to work ,because she said the hair are fine and she could burn my skin. Is that true ? I am going to ask also some other.
I am attaching photos of the problem. Maybe the use of flash makes it to seem worse, but the hair are really there and make me devastated every day.
I would appreciate any advise and help. Thank you.
