Mustache shadow, why is it there beneath makeup???
« on: June 06, 2018, 03:57:22 pm »
So I've had five laser sessions before, and on top of HRT. There's really only blonde slow growing hairs left. Anyways!!! I've read and tried everything, I swear, and I never had a full heavy beard. My mustache shadow though-- looks more intense and noticable with makeup over it  ??? I don't understand! I've tried red, pink, primer foundation, combos, concealer etc....I'm sooo frustrated. Anyone have a solid way to do this? I'm at a loss.

I had the same issue and I think it just feels more noticeable because everything else has a more even skin tone. Have you tried actual color corrector? Ouch corrector under the foundation helped me significantly and is very thick and sticky, so it sticks to hair if it grows. I was using Clinique corrector and thought it did a good job at covering the blue shadow in my fair skin. After my 8th round of laser and four hours of electrolysis on my chin, I am finally starting to drop corrector and concealer from my routine.

Yes ma'am, I definitely have. I'm at a loss lol, maybe getting electrolysis on my upper lip will fix it?? Grrrr...I couldn't even grow thick facial hair until four years ago... Darn it, if only.

To get those white hairs you will need electrolysis. Laser picks up the hair pigment under the skin. If the hair is dark it gets zapped, If blond, the hair just absorbs the energy. If all you need is to do is your lip than about four sessions should take care of it. I am about at the end of my electrolysis. So far I have had forty appointments. $2400 so far. But once it's done, it's done. Not so with laser, Avg face 30,000 hairs. Avg hairs per hour with a good electrologist 300 - 350. You might try dermaplane razors. They are mini straight razors that shave extra close and also exfoliate the dead skin making your skin smoother.

Yep, I found similar where laser took care of large areas but roots remained behind, in some areas little dots that could only be solved with electrolysis.  I had hoped stray roots would shed on their own but they didn't.  I went almost exclusively electrolysis on face, mostly laser elsewhere followed with quite a bit of electrolysis cleanup to get really smooth.

Thank you ladies for all your advice! Yes, I was planning on getting electrolysis on my upper lip after my next (6th) laser session. My face has really cleared up, and all that's left for the most part are blonde hairs and a few darker ones. I purchased a Groupon for electrolysis and will plan on getting at least three treatments on my upper lip. It's so aggravating, facial hair lol...grrr.
