I just wanted to say how thankful I am for all of you out there posting to this board! It is such a relief to know that you are not alone with this horrible, horrible, horrible problem. I am thirty and my sister is twenty years old. We both have a bad case of facial hair. We each had seven treatments on our face with Light Sheer and Aurora. Even though it is a long way to hair free, the maintenance had become SO much easier. Before the laser plucking would take hours from the day. Now it is a few minutes of shaving and I could be out the door in no time.
My case was so bad that I would not open the door to dearest friends if they decided to drop by the house unannounced or with a very short warning, I always needed time to pluck before any encounter with an outside world.
For those of you ladies with the same problem of facial hair, I would strongly recommend the Laser. It is expensive, and if you have excessive growth like I do, I doubt the results of laser will yield into permanently hair free you, but it will make your life easier. I will definitely consider electrolysis after I am done with laser. I am under impression that electrolysis produces more permanent results and works on light hair. So far, I would say that purchasing this Laser package to treat my face was one of the best investments, and the return on this investment is better quality of life. I no longer have a shadow on my face; I don’t have to put tons of concealer and foundation to hide the shadow and the red spots from all that plucking, and I can open the door to unexpected guests since shaving can always be done in minutes.
Once again, my sincere appreciation to all of you sharing your experiences and feelings.
Take care, polki.
