I'M NOT PLUCKING ANYMORE!!! I STOPPED OKAY! And even when I was, it was only to remove the few hairs here and there that didn't permanently go away with electrolysis. That's not what is giving me a WHOLE PATCH of PERPETUAL BROWN 5 OCLOCK SHADOW. I can't believe how patronizing some people are on here and not giving any advice of substance!!!

There is nothing left for you to do to permanently remove hair. Electrolysis does work. I have never seen permanent hyperpigmentation from electrolysis. Unfortunately, you may be the exception.

People "on here" cannot give you any "advice of substance" because we are "on here" ... GUESSING at what your skin looks like, and guessing at what condition you have without seeing you in person. You are not getting the answers you want because you are in the wrong place.

Go to a skilled dermatologist and work with your problem. Nobody can help you on-line.

At this point, you have pretty much used up everybody's patience: nobody has the answer for you! People spent a lot of time trying to help and giving you their answers based on decades of experience. You don't like their answers ... they cannot do any more for you! Go to a physician!

When I say no advice of substance, I'm referring to being told to just wait or see a dermatologist. And I've done BOTH. I have been to 2 dermatologists, and I've done a lot of waiting. 3 years of waiting in fact. And the dermatologists just want to sell me their chemical peels and lasers. And I've done the best I can do by posting pictures on the first page...... I seriously question whether other members of this site understand at an emotional level what I'm dealing with. I am not a robot. I'm a human that invested quite a lot of time and money and made a lot of sacrifices for this procedure, all of which seem like a waste now. The standard response seems to be just to wait-It could take years. Is it hard to understand that this response doesn't elicit comfort or confidence, given the years that have passed with little to no improvement?

Okay ... well, at least this gives you a place to "vent?"

And, as you say, there is no answer ... at least nothing any of us can provide (or the two dermatologists you consulted).

But check back in a year because, in my opinion, your problem will have resolved. Until then, try not focusing on the PIH, because other people do not notice it (they are too worried about their own faults).

Trust me, a few "dings" here-and-there will not ruin your life ... unless you think it will. I'm so covered with dings, scars and barnacles I look like an old Grey Whale. Physically I'm a mess ... but I usually wake up in the morning with a smile and willingness to forge ahead (after a cup of coffee), thru all the aches and pains and body falling apart. I helps if you stop looking in the mirror. Picasso did it when he got old and mangled ... and it worked!
