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
