“It controls my life. I can’t be spontaneous as a result of I’m always worrying about 5 o’clock shadow.”
“I’ve tried every part and nothing works for me. I have to shave twice a day just to maintain it under control.”
“No-one understands what I’m going via. All my confidence has gone and i can’t see any approach out.”
We know what you are going through.
Hormonal hair growth, particularly on the face, is not limited to simply PCOS but in addition Cushing’s Syndrome, adrenal problems, thyroid disorders and more.
This sort of hair is hard to the touch, like plastic toothbrush bristles. It is deeper and extra strongly rooted than typical facial hair. The hair itself is sometimes not particularly thick, but the roots are very massive which trigger a noticeable shadow underneath the pores and skin. Not surprisingly many sufferers pluck the hairs out to stop this shadow appearing, however sadly this can result in ingrown hairs and broken pores and skin. A vicious circle then begins perfect extensions up the place the sufferer can’t stop plucking, although she is aware of it’s making her pores and skin look worse.
On top of all this there are different symptoms corresponding to receding scalp hair and weight gain or loss. Thick hair may also spring up on the physique, particularly the abdomen, across the chest and the backs of the thighs.
While your GP may have prescribed medication that will help you control your different symptoms, none of them can reverse the hair that has already grown. Eflornithine (aka Vaniqa tm) can reduce the scale of the hair but doesn’t work for everyone, and the impact wears off once you cease using it. Laser/IPL presents temporary relief, but once more isn’t appropriate for all, and in a small variety of instances can set off extra hair growth*.
It’s probably you know about every hair elimination method below the sun, and have tried almost all of them (together with the dubious ones). You may even have started electrolysis however didn’t stick with it because it didn’t seem to be working. No wonder you feel offended, depressed, exasperated and just plain fed-up about your state of affairs. You may feel elated from the moment relief when it’s gone using momentary strategies, but when it grows again you feel again at square one.
The only approach to deal with a large drawback like hair development is to chop it down into small, manageable steps. As an alternative of making an attempt to ‘just get rid of it’ all in one go (which can’t happen without taking your pores and skin with it!) electrolysis correctly treats the problem by working with the hair growth, using it to stop extra hairs from growing. It won’t provide dramatic results in the primary few weeks but if you happen to stick with it then you’ll be left with permanent outcomes and a real sense of achievement. Because the beauty pioneer Helena Rubinstein once said, “Nothing worthwhile occurs in a hurry.”
Members of the BIAE have helped countless women such as you take away their thick facial hair, and the outcomes are actually everlasting. It’s tough going at first, we won’t lie about that. However if you start with one small space and get it cleared first you’ll see for your self that hormonal facial hair really can be removed completely.
Whenever you see the hair is truly not growing back you will feel in management once extra.
Some of the rewarding elements of being a BIAE member is seeing our clients visibly blossom perfect extensions and regain their confidence as the hair disappears.
