I wish I had never picked up a pair of tweezers. When I was about 18, I used hair removing cream on almost my entire face. I have slightly elevated testosterone (which accounts for the male pattern hair growth on my face), exacerbated by years of relentless plucking. This (below) is what I look like after 1 week without tweezers or shaving or plucking of any sort (I'm on vacation so my co-workers do NOT have to see this, mercifully!).
Believe it or not, that's a woman's face.
Is this the worst case you have ever seen?
Am I beyond redemption?
This is going to take at least a solid year, isn't it?
Will the bumps go away? I am really determined this time. My electrologist has packed up shop because her husband has a chronic disease, so I have a new one.
The pictures reflect ~7 days of growth. I counted over 250 hairs (gave up after 250 hairs!) on my chin after 7 days. I am told I could have up to 6000 hairs (well, I read this online). How quickly does hair on the chin grow back? 12 weeks? 6 weeks? Confused!
