I joined the forum many months ago and learned so much about what to do and not do in regards to my 12 year old daughter’s facial hair issues. We do not pluck and only wax the eyebrows. We have used fine scissors and tried to cut hairs down to the surface. I can not continue to keep this up and am ready to go to laser or electrolysis. Yes, I know electrolysis is the only permanent method, but that laser is quite effective as well. She has dark hair and light skin. She is on an antibiotic and topical cream for mild to moderate acne. Due to her inconsistency in using it, the acne has not completely cleared up and stayed away, maybe if she is consistent with it. Anyway, being so young and under acne prescription meds, does this effect the outcome of laser or electrolysis? Can she have damage to her skin with either treatment? Laser is offered through her dermatologists office, but since I am not too found of her dermatologist, I am not sure I want to use someone from the office.I am not sure how she will stand the discomfort of electrolysis, but would like to try it if I knew someone who was recommended to me. I live in Maryland, near Washington DC.I would love any recommendations for elect. or laser. I also think she would not want to go to school if her face was all red and swollen after a treatment, so I wouldn’t want to use the treatment that causes multiple day redness and swelling. So many criteria. The other choice I have is to keep up with clipping, but I think when the hair grows it causes a break out! It seems to go hand in hand. Also can people go in the sun after treatment of both laser and electrolysis?
Thank you in advance.
