I have this problem with the fine dark hairs on my upperlip that are about .2 cm long. I am Asian and olive-skinned with dark hair. I plucked a few times, which I think made it more noticeable in the end, and I tried at-home waxing, but it didn’t work due to the length of the hairs. I’m really pretty self-conscious about it and I started to research electrolysis.
Does anyone have a recommendation for a great electrologist in the bay area? I looked up a listing and I got many results. I want to have this done properly, because I’d probably be more self-conscious about the pits or permanent white dots on my upperlip. By the way, if I get dots that are noticeably lighter in color than the rest of my face temporarily, can I hide it with makeup between sessions?
Also, I read that before going in for a session, I would have to shave 12 hours beforehand. Is that true? I’m not sure that’s a good idea in case the procedure does not work and I get thick, course regrowth.
Thanks for any help!
