Question Hair, Hair Everywhere

I'm tired of having so much hair in places it just wasn't "meant to be" -- namely the bikini area.

Have you ever had electrolysis in this area?

Does it work?

Does it scar?

Was it worth it?

Thanks for your responses.

I don't know anyone who's had electrolysis, but a girl I know had laser hair removal down there. It took a couple follow-up visits for touch-ups, but it apparently worked out well for her.

Take care! Susan

I've had electrolysis in other areas and it takes a very long time as it's done one hair at a time, and it hurts. I would suggest laser instead.

you said you would recomend laser but you never said if electrolosis worked for you. was it permanent or does the hair come back? i know with the laser you have to go back at least 3 times because your hair grows in phases. does it grow back in the same spot after electrolosis? did you have it professionally done or did your do it yourself?
