I've done laser treatment for my face (chin area) and it's the one of the best cosmetic decisions I've ever made. 8 sessions with a 3 year guarantee of 4 touch up sessions - $550 total at a medi-spa (Laser Cosmetica
in NYC and Philly). Greatly reduced the amount of hair.
@ Nappy Crown. I'm dark-skinned as well. As you probably already know, the key is to find a place (that you trust of course) that uses the "Cool Glide" or "YAG" laser for dark skin types.
And then there's electrolysis. I've researched this technique used by Lucy Peters
which is supposedly permanent. (Although the FDA says there is no such thing as truly permanent hair removal for some individuals.) When I read the reviews, it seems like a lot of transgender folks love the Lucy Peters technique for facial hair removal. I think I trust their opinion...LOL.
And then there's this litte thingy: The Epicare
Sort of based on the threading technique, but you do it yourself. Takes a bit to get the hang of it, but I loved using it before getting laser treatment. Here's a link to a youtuber demonstrating it: YouTube - Bellabe/Epicare Facial Hair Removal
This is a generally good site to read up on hair removal: Hairtell: Hair removal forum
Funny. We spend so much time and money keeping the hair on our heads and keeping it off everywhere else.....
