I am not sure if this is the right place to post this but I have unwanted facial hair as do many other women. However I started shaving mine (then it was just peach fuz and I should have left it alone) but after three years of shaving I now have to do it every day because it is much thicker and noticable. And even though many women hae this problem its still embarassing considering I have to make sure to shave my face before I see my bf!!! I want laser hair removal really bad, but I am not sure I can afford to do it. Anyone have any idea of how much it costs to get it done on your face? Is that per treatment or for a set of treatments? And has anyone had any problems with it or heard of any... I dont want to have it done to my face and come to find out that it ruins my skin! Any help or advice you can give would be appriciated. Thanks
I had laser hair removal about 5 years ago. It cost me around $1000 for a set of treatments to do the upper lip, chin, neck, and chest. But for me it was not permanent, probably because my hormone imbalance problems were not completely fixed. They say it works better for people with dark hair and light skin, which I have. I didn't really have any skin problems after other than redness lasting longer than they said it would (they said I would be red for an hour or two- I was red for a day or two).
Since then I have moved to a different state and recently looked into having it done again at a local spa with the hopes that my hormones will stay normal now. I also hoped it might cost less since it seems that laser hair removal is becoming more common. Unfortunatley, I am not having it done because now it would cost me over $2000 for a set of treatments on just the lip and chin! Maybe the cost differs from place to place and wouldn't cost so much somewhere else.
If I were you I would go to the doctor and find out what the cause of the hair growth is and see if there's anything you can do to keep more new hair from growing. My doctor put me on birth control to help regulate my hormones and keep new hair from growing, but I stopped taking the pill after I had laser hair removal and new hair grew back. Being a woman and having to shave really sucks!
