    If it's an ongoing problem, maybe you could try having cosmetic surgery like laser treatment to get rid of excess hair ?

    Get laser treatment, it will sort it out. No need to be embarrassed, the people you see about such things will see it everyday. For now you could bleech it/ pluck it out depending on how much there is. Dont worry about, get it sorted and move on.

    Couldn't you phone up a beauty treatment place and ask about it; that way you wouldn't have to be embarrassed as no one would know you, but you could get a professional opinion?

    Seriously- have you ever watched the Embarassing Bodies series on channel 4 ? Facial hair is the least of it. People are more open about stuff nowadays, it's not a big deal. Practically all my family are doctors, and they deal with things that are far more peculiar than that! They'll be friendly and just see it as something they need to treat- it's nothing to be anxious about

    Laser treatment is expensive and not guaranteed to work, though... Nothing is permanent. I think you could ask your doctor - it might just be a hormonal thing?

    I've got PCOS so I sympathise cos excess hair is one of the symptoms. My doctor gave me something called Vaniqa which is a cream that supposedly slows the growth of the hair eventually - I had to stop using it cos it gave me spots, but it works for some people.

    I just pluck but if it was worse, I'd go for the laser treatment or electrolysis

    Dont worry...you are not alone

    Yeah the contraceptive pill can help. I'm on dianette for my skin but the leaflet also mentions it is useful for getting rid of excess hair.

    You could have a hormone imbalance. See a physician.

    Go to a doctor or a nurse for it, otherwise you won't know for certain.

    With PCOS there may be other symptoms such as irregular periods or pain.

    Hormonal imbalance you may also suffer from mood swings/spots too.

    Threading is the best, it leaves the skin soft and smooth, and lasts for 3-4 weeks. Give it a try

    yeah threading is amazing!! i definitely recommend it i also have a self-threading device thing that was recommended by someone on here!! im just gonna find out the name and get back to you about it - its how i get rid of excess hair in between threading sessions! couldnt live without it, cos hair grows back so fast, and plucking in between getting threaded is sooooo long & tiresome.

    Despite being warned for my earlier post, I would like to point out I believe that was sound advice, and besides bearded women turn me on, there's something about the way the light reflects off it that gets me going.
