    Laser Hair removal

    I have horrible, recurring hair on my chin and neck. I am considering having it permanently removed. Any tips or don'ts to avoid?

    Hello c2hrmom and Welcome -

    I am sorry you are battling this frustrating problems. After researching treatment, please also research facilities and treatment providers. Experience is the key!

    Here are a few options for hair removal -

    I had electrolysis of my upper lip, chin and eye brows. I went every other week for about six months. That was about 15 years ago, I go every once in awhile now for touch-ups. I had 6 or 7 laser treatments on my underarms and bikini area.

    A dermatologist can also help you make the best decision.

    What is your skin type and complexion? This is also something to take into consideration.

    Hope this is helpful,
    - Elizabeth
