Hey, after getting my hormone levels checked 3 times by my obgyn, an endocrinologist, and a hormone specialist, because of excessive hair growth on my neck, chest, and face, the hormone specialist told me that my testosterone levels were high for my body weight. While they are right in the middle of the normal range, I am very light and apparently it’s really high for my BMI.
I had tried to get laser hair removal to remove the unwanted hairs I have before I knew my hormones were a little out of whack. I had a TERRIBLE response to the laser! The hairs grew back thicker and darker, and not only that but I have tons of new hairs! Most of them are fine but there are some that are more pigmented and very long!
Well I’m now turning towards electrolysis so fix the problems that the laser caused. Has anyone else with hormonal imbalances had this problem with the laser? Can electrolysis have the same impact on someone with hormonal imbalances?
I’ve had great results so far with electrolysis. The hairs are growing back some, but it takes about 7 weeks and when they do grow back they are much lighter and finer than they were! I’m hopeful but still skeptic. Any advice?
