facial hair removal

I get lots of facial hair, made worse by the fact that i stupidly started shaving it blush. I get it on my lips and chin and at the sides - managed to wax the sides today, some horrible black curly fuckers - but the wax strips wont do my chin as the hairs are quite short and stubbly (becasuse i stupidly shaved them) I just cannot bear to grow it long enough, i'll look like a bearded lady.

Any suggestions - money unfortunately is an object.

I have had scans for PCOS so its not that.

1. NEVER shave your face.
2. Invest in a massive magnifying mirror, bright light and ultra-precision tweezers.
3. Get busy with tweezers.
4. Bleach the little suckers. And check every day for the stubby ones.
5. And exfoliate lots.

Man, I HATE facial hair. It is the bane of my life. Why am I so hairy? I'm like a werewolf.

you can get vaniqa hormone cream on prescription, its female hormone, causes spots but I would rather have zits then a beard!
Mine are much better but yes, PLUCK! I have a 12 x mag mirror

Another plucker here.

No it doesn't hurt, your chin is tougher than your eyebrows. I sometimes bleach my upper lip, but I do pluck them on occasion. Usually if I can't be bothered to get the bleach out.

However, it has crossed my mind that one day I will be too old to see the little feckers easily and I will have turned into an old bearded woman.sadblush

Laser treatment -- really. Could your GP refer you so you could get it on the NHS?

But that's the beauty (heh) of it; you do a maintenance every day with the plucking. And it doesn't hurt that much!
