This is probably in the wrong forum but i really didnt know where to post it. sorry.
I’m a 20 year old girl and i live in the Uk and i have very low self esteem because of unwanted hair problems. I have always been hairy but my problem was made unbearable after i underwent Roaccutane treatment for my acne, increased hair growth was a side affect. My main problems are my face and bikini line and i have decided that i HAVE to do something about it now as it is really affecting all aspects of my life!
I really dont know what to do to start myself on the process of permenant hair removal. I have a lot of facial hair which at the moment i pluck and sometimes use hair removal creams. None of this has helped really as it takes ages and grows back before i have time to redo it.
I went to my doctor and she suggested that i go on the pill, but also said that this might not be very effective.
I cant spend a lot of money on treatments that dont work as i am a student at the moment and i have to use my money carefully. But i am willing to save up if i can feel confident that i will see improvement. I am scared i am going to be scamed like many other people. I have looked into my local salon but everyone who works there looks like they have just come out of high school so i dont know if i can trust them. Do you know of any official list of trusted salons in london??
I have also tried proffesional waxing on my bikini line but the redness that it causes last just as long as the hair-removal. And it has caused quite a few in grown hairs.
I just dont know where to start?? As in england it isnt as easy to find proffesional people.
