Hey,

I'm just wondering does anybody have experience of plucking facial hair and if they think it makes it worse?

Several of my clients have been plucking fine hair in their faces and got thick and deep whiskers like a man.

It is not recommended ,to pluck facial hair, especially on hormonally driven areas e.g upper lip and chin. Waxing and tweezing can make it worse. Anytime you rip a hair from the follicle , blood rushes to the area. Blood supply is what nourishes the dermal papila of a hair to grow.So you are encouraging healthier hair to return in place of the one you just removed. Also blood affects the surrounding tissue as well, so it can stimulate nearby follicle to grow hairs.

Thats what I fear frown I have been considering applisox hair removal on my upper lip and chin area. The therapist said she would pluck each hair out as she treated them. I'm worried that if applisonix doesn't work and I have the hairs plucked out every 6 weeks 8 times in total I will end up with a beard frown

I'm not digging the Applisonix approach. I won't belabor the point because I have already all added all I can to the that thread. I'm still not hearing about stellar results all these months later.
