hair removal

QUESTION:

Dear Debra,

What do you know about the Finally Free Permanent Hair Removal System? It uses radio frequency waves to kill the hair at the roots. Do you think it would be a safe way to get rid of unwanted facial hair?

DEBRA'S ANSWER:

I don't know anything about this particular product, but..readers, how do you (women) safely remove unwanted facial hair? The best method I've found is the Finishing Touch Personal Hair Remover. Yes, it's one of those cheap infomercial gadgets, but it really does work very well! And it is inexpensive, easy to use, nontoxic, painless, and hair actually grows back lighter and softer.

Debra :-)


COMMENTS:

Hormonal imbalance causes women to grow facial hair. According to Dr. John Lee, MD the answer is natural progesterone cream made from wild yam. I have been using it since I was 45, for 9 years. According to his books our progesterone goes completely away after menopause and it's the imbalance between the hormones that causes so many symptoms. Estrogen always remains in our fat stores and that is why the body creates more fat after menopause, to compensate for the lack of estrogen. Natural progesterone (not progestin) can help with unwanted facial hair, improve bone density, is a natural diuretic, anti-depressant, hormonal migraines, helps insominia, hot flashes and so much more.

I had laser hair removal treatments done a few years ago, and I did a lot of research before deciding to have this treatment. From what I read then, and have read since, this type of product (using radio waves) will not work. Even lasers that are specifically designed to remove hair below the surface of the skin will not permanently remove it forever.

But, having said that, I had the laser treatment done at a clinic that used the most effective (according to my research at the time) laser, which was the LightSheer Diode laser, and it worked wonderfully. It has been almost six years, and the hair on my legs still has not grown back.

Unfortunately, laser hair treatments are expensive, but as far as I can tell, they are the only way at this time, to get anything close to permanent results. As far as safety goes, I did not have any negative side effects, except it hurts like heck while it's being done!

There is some excellent info on this website about hair removal methods: www.cosmeticscop.com/learn/hair.asp?ID=166
