I don’t have a lot of facial hair by some people’s standards, but I have always hated having any. I’ve always been worried about being masculine and so when I first began to get a few stray hairs on my chin, i just plucked them.
The problem was that instead of growing out of the skin again, they would become ingrown. In fact, it has become such a problem for me that I would actually dig the hair out so I could pluck it.
This has left me with ingrown hairs on chin and neck and scars over the ingrown hairs. If only I had gone to an electrolysis before I ever began tweezing, but I was ashamed having hair and then ashamed of having hair and scarring.
The question is, with skin that is scarred and hair trapped beneath the surface of the skin, is electolysis even possible or feasible. The hair I have on my neck (about a dozen) all literally need the skin to be pierced with a needle to get them from below the skins surface and you can see a black dot under the skin where the hair is growing. It is causing me more anxiety than I want to deal with anymore and just want it gone…permanently.
Please any help, suggestions, advice is appreciated more than you’ll know!
