Not sure if I'm posting this in the right area, but I couldn't think of a better place to ask.

I have terrible chin hair, it's embarassing!
I pluck the hairs, but it's getting worse as I age (I'm 32).

Does anyone have any other suggestions for getting rid of this embarassment? I'm tired of plucking every day, and I can't afford laser (but oh how I dream!).

Thanks for any ideas!

Sweety, I share your pain. I finally said enough and started laser treatment. Now I have to shave everyday because I'm not permitted to tweeze, wax or anything, but in a few months my nightmare will be over. They now offer financing if you're interested. It's costing me about $1,000. for chin and upper lip. The money will be well worth it if I never see another chin hair........

$1K isn't bad...but I just spent $4K in February for Invisalign (which I LOVE!).

Oy...I'm a mess! Hairy chin and crooked teeth!

Im having electrolysis done to mine and let me tell you that it is painful!! When you mix a needle with electric current is bound to hurt! I dont have the money for laser treatments and plus when I went to a consultaion one time for laser because of my complexion I was informed that I wasnt the best candidate so there goes that!

I think I would just have too much hair for threading. I would have to go back every day or so for a while to get the new growth...

you could try epilating - emjoi have a small travel epilator called epitravel which is perfect for the face - i have the same problems.

I used to thread but either i wasn't doing it right or my skin is too sensitive, I always had red marks, soreness and spots.

Epilation is a bit the same but to a lesser degree and i find it much easier.

I have the exact same problem, except mine goes down my neck also. Such a pain. I pluck what I can and then shave after.

i've tried waxing and depilatories. they both caused an aweful reaction, so now i just tweeze everyday. i do use one of those little facial shavers for the fine hairs, though. it is a pain to do everyday, but it works for me.

I've also tried a lot of things short of the needle and laser but being male it would be very very expensive for either... SIGN. Have a few TG friends who have gone the laser route with mixed success!! All depends on the color of your hair...

And as I get older the hair seems to be getting coarser and harder to shave... So I shave more and it tears up my skin so I'm in a death spiral.... Got to find some way to break out of this cycle I'm in.... Be nice if it would just stop growing!! Lol. Love to have smooth skin and never shave again!! But that's life!!! Ohh Well..

I completely agree with you! I used to think I was the only one that dealt with dark, course excess hair, and it made me feel so bad! Since then I have found that it is a lot more common than I thought...many people just don't talk about it because they are too embarrassed....

that is so true!

I had another idea - spotted a product in boots the other day, think it was by skin doctors - its a 2 part system - a hair removal cream and then a hair retardant cream to apply after you have used the deplitory cream - maybe that is a better root to go - I myself and thinking of trying it.

Also - have you been to see your doctor? you may have a hormone inbalance which can cause excess hair growth - they will usually recommend the pill to remedy this - though I personally prefer not to.

its not that uncommon - a few of my friends have this problem and have all been prescribed the pill - then again it may be a statistical annomoly

I thought shaving caused hair to grow back darker and thicker.
