The last 4 years I am embaressed to be seen in natural light not only cause of my acne and scars but also my peach fuzz. Usually everyone girls face I look at close up , has peachfuzz , but it looks fine , it grows all in one direction. Mine just grows in different directions and looks really scary. I try to pluck some out from my chin but , ther is just to much to do get it all out,I notice older woman have this problem. Do u think I should shave it???And why me?

That's happening to me too. I don't know why, i know it's hormonal, I know older woman have this problem because of aging, but I'm only 20 and I have no clue what I'm supposed to do, I don't think i have aging hormones yet.

I have too much to pluck, lol. I pluck the obvious ones, and I lost my head and waxed, biggest mistake ever. don't EVER wax your face, even with wax made especially for the face.

But I'm gonna try and pluck them all soon, It's going to take alot of time and patience though.

Ilonka,

I have the same problem, my peachfuzz is longer than most people's and I seem to have more of it than most people my age (27) It's sort of a "new" thing for me too because it wasn't always this way - I had all of my hormone levels checked (a good idea if you suddenly get hairier) but everything was normal. The doctor told me that some people are just very sensitive to testosterone and even though my testosterone is normal, my follicles are just extra sensitive to any amount of it, hence the increased hair. (GREAT)

In any event, you cannot get laser removal for peach fuzz. The hair is too light and fine for it to be successful. THere is even one IPL (The Aurora) laser hair removal machine that some clinics CLAIM will get rid of peachfuzz (because it does get rid of blonde hair) HOWEVER I went to a reputable center who uses this machine and she said she would not take my money for peachfuzz because it simply would not work.

Please look into threading for your peachfuzz. I just had this done on my entire face and it was wonderful! It's something that you have to keep up, but it does not irritate your skin like waxing. (I was afraid to wax because of my acne prone skin)

Here is info on threading
http://www.spaindex....s/Threading.htm
You can search for a place in your area that offers it.

ALSO here is a thread going right now for other girle with "hair" issues. YOu are not alone....

I have the same problem. I can pluck a few long hairs, but there are too many shorter, finer hairs to pluck. In the past I've had the most success with waxing, but I had one bad experience that scared me away from it.

I always had it done at a salon, and then one time, I don't know if the wax was too hot or if it had something to do with my skin, but some of my skin came off when the wax was ripped off. I had scabs on my face for over a week. It looked awful. Ever since, I've been too scared to do it again. sad.gif

Since then, I've used Nair for faces. It seemed to work pretty well. Wasn't painful. Although, now that I'm on the regimen I might not be able to do that anymore.

Ouch..thats happened to me before where skin came off with the wax, left lil scabs on my face. But I think that was because of the acne meds i was on at the time, made my skin super sensitive...but yeah, I feel your pain! Had bad experience with Nair for the face too..got burned, more scabs! lol Well until I find a threading place...or save up some dough for laser hair removal, Im gonna keep waxing and plucking rolleyes.gif

I think you may be thinking of IPL hair removal ilonka, that wont get lighter hair because it works off pigment.
