I agree! Get going. Electrolysis is perfect for any color of skin, any color of hair and any structure of hair, in any phase of growth. Get your consults and make sure the electrologist has the ability to see those "tiny Tim" hairs.
I would clear all the hairs in one session, but most won't treat the upper lip for more than 15 minutes. Either way is okay. After the first, full clearance, you will need 8-15 sessions, to clear each time, as you go through the hair growth cycles. Those sessions have to be spread out over 9-18 months. You can't go any faster. Sorry, it's Mother Natures fault. We don't make the rules.
The darkness will disappear as the little dark hairs are removed.
Being a woman of color, you MAY get some hyperpigmentation. Do not fear - it will fade, with time.
