I have a REALLY bad case of facial hair on my entire chin area below my cheeks and under my chin. I used to get laser hair removal (for 3 years) on a regular basis when I lived in Atlanta. At the center I was going to, the dr told me (because I asked) that I was the worst case she had ever seen (thats just how bad its is--not in denial, i know that its bad). Now I am in Arkansas and I had a really botched treatment here so I refuse to try again, as for dark skin, there is a specific laser that has to be used and clearly they did not have it. (They burned me really badly) So until I can get back to my center in Atlanta, I'm stuck.

So I have had to resort to shaving (which leaves so much stubble and I hate the stubble feeling so badly) and plucking (which I know very well not to do but at this point it can't get worse than the worse it already is)...but since again I have sooooo much hair, it takes HOURS to even pluck it all. HOURS. Tried waxing and I literally have to wax over and over on the same spot to even remove two strands of hair...a HUGE waste of time. My face merely laughs at cream hair removals...been there done that a thousand times over too. This coarse hair just will not play fair. I am just So over this whole scene at this point.

Well now I am in a desperate situation because no matter what method I use to remove the hair, I can't cover the bumps left from shaving and the scaring and dark spots left from plucking! I am wondering what I could use on black skin that will actually offer me the support and coverage for as smooth a finish as possible, considering what I'm working with? Any help/advice on this would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks in advance.

Shavin' might not be your best resort because it is horribly bad for your skin. Does the Nair Facial Hair Removal creme really not work?? & maybe this will also help. There is a mexican soap called Asepxia that removes bumps & things of that sort from your face due to shavin' & waxin' & whatnot. I wish you luck! :D

Have you heard of an epilator? Its basically a little handheld thing that looks almost like a hand held shaver, but its got like, 30 pairs of tweezers on it. It basically plucks all the hairs out, some girls swear by it for the legs, under arms, and facial hair.
I personally have never used one, but I want one! It might be the least-irritating option, since shaving is bad for your skin, and those creams are harsh too!

what about the no no hair removal system... it zaps away hair. I had one year's ago I used on my legs it worked just fine. I would stay away from shaving it does tent to leave behind in grown hairs .. I dont know if this is even helping you! I am sorry

I invested in a laser for $250 that I can use at home and it's a pain to use. I have to wear sunglasses and use creams before I laser. But I can do it myself. I wish I had tried the Tria instead, I have heard it does work. I also have to pluck in between treatments, I make sure my tweezermans are sharp, use alcohol to keep them clean and wash with cetaphil cleanser everyday.

Gabriela a thanks...yea I agree...shaving is so awful! No the hair is not strong enough...this facial for some reason is so darn coarse...it just will not come off with the cream removers...hate that too. I am willing to try anything...may have to find that soap!

Amy p I didn't even know that the laser system was something that could be purchased for home use. Is it the real deal system like what they have at the dr office? I would love more info on that. Yes, that thing is so painful. I would put on the numbing cream like 30 minutes before the treatment but the pain was so intense that the cream was really pointless. I would be swollen for a day and a half which is why I would always go on Friday after work or Saturday morning. That way by Monday I was practically back to normal...and that was with icing the whole weekend! But that is literally the only thing that works for me...laser.

I agree with the rocketing then wipe the area with witch hazel after also see what is actually causing this hair, and target the cause of the problem.

Sounds like your not waxing properly. Go to a salon and get it waxed!! Do NOT shave.

Atleast you are aware of your problem and are doing your best, I work at McDonald's and women come through with beards thicker than some of my male friends. Honestly go to a salon to get it waxed and go to a dermatologist about the bumps and just cover up the discoloration with a full coverage foundation, your still beautiful :)

Will do Jacy...YouTube going innnnnn lol

From a guy's point of view, I like to exfoliate before shaving and then after I shave I use Tend Skin pretty much daily. I do get the occasional bump here and there and it's incredibly annoying. I also really hate the stubble and am currently trying to find a method or a product that will leave my face smooth and stubble free. I remember reading about some cream that's supposed to not only remove hairs but keep it from growing back thicker, and actually thins it as well. I cannot remember the name, but I will post back here if I can find it.
