I thought my upper lip was too fuzzy so I tweezed a lot of the hair off, even though the hair was so light it was only noticeable from close up. It looked fine once it was no longer red until the next day, when the area looked dark and discolored, like a light grey or black stain on the area. This was three weeks ago and it still hasn’t faded. It looks much worse then the light hair ever did because it just disappeared into my pale skin. I know it was a stupid thing to do, but I can’t change it now…
Looking up discolored upper lip gives me pregnancy and menopause, neither of which can apply to me, and sun damage, which it can’t be because I don’t like tanned skin and avoid the sun or wear sunscreen when I can’t stay out of it. It also can’t be the hair growing under the surface, because my hair is so light.
I’ve heard of people with discoloration from threading, but this is only supposed to happen in darker-skinned or Mediterranean women, and I am Nordic and quite pale. I’ve never tweezed the whole area before, I’ve done a few hairs but that was a long time ago.
What could this be? Will it ever fade, and how long will it take? Anything I should do or avoid to speed up the fading?
