I'm in my 30s and after having my first child (2 years ago) I noticed hair growth on my chin area. I'm now considering getting electrolysis on that area. I have a hand full of hairs that I have been tweezing often (once a week) that grow back dark and coarse. I also have a few lighter hairs (like peach fuzz, but much longer) that I would also like to get removed. My question is, will the lighter hairs grow back dark and coarse once removed with electrolysis?
Some information that might be helpful to you - regarding those hairs you tweeze once a week, they used to be fine (vellus) hairs and something turned them on to become coarse. Those lighter longer (accelerated vellus) hairs also USED to be fine hairs. While it will not hurt to have a physician evaluate the hair problem, most clients do not ever learn the cause of their hair growth. Most electrologists can tell a client that accelerated growth (coarsening) of hair happens to women during puberty, pregnancy and menopause.
Electrology treatments will efficiently remove any of the hairs that you might grow in your lifetime. It's just important to know that it does not grow in one small window of time, but you may very well have large windows of time where there is no growth, as long as the hairs are removed by a good electrologist as soon as they grow.
