    Unhappy Anyone have "mustache" shadow?

    I have pretty severe shadow on my upper lip that makes me very very self conscious. I do apply concealer and have become quite a pro with the make up to hide the shadow. I shave daily every morning.

    Does anyone also have a problem with shadow? How do you deal with it? I could deal with just the hair alone, but when the shadow starting getting worse, it just changed me. I hate that I can't go out without make up. If it's early morning and I haven't put on my face, and gosh forbid the doorbell rings.... this is torture! I pretend I'm not home. One time my husband's cousin stopped by unexpectedly and I about died!!!!!!!!!!!! I told her that I was about to get in the shower and was in a towel, so I unlocked the door and told her to make herself at home while I ran back to my room to "prepare" my face. I absolutely hate what it's come down to.

    I am really interested in laser treatment but would like to know if anyone with severe shadow had laser and how well it solved the problem. Please help!

    some meds can help with the hair, i had laser done a few years ago, and i still have hair, i shave mustache and under chin every day, but i really think it is better than it was....i also keep a razor and some moisturizer in my glove compartment in case i think i need it during the day...good luck...Lisa

    laser has evolved since i had mine, also the color of your hair can make a difference..

    Thanks for your advise. The lady I spoke to regarding my laser tx did mention that with PCOS it was likely that the hair may keep growing back. I am still interested in having it done even if it can deplete the majority of the hair I have now.

    Do you have a problem with shadow as well?

    i dont know how much of a mustache shadow i have, but i seem to notice the chin getting heavier during the day, might also be because i have been looking for it(ya know what i mean??) also depends on how much it costs and if insurance will help...some people have been fortunate to have some help insurance wise...hope i answered your question...
    good luck...Lisa

    From what I've read the reason the hair will grow back is b/c you don't have your hormones under control. So as long as they're out of whack b/c you're not on medication or not on a high enough dose or it hasn't started working yet any money spent on laser therapy is wasted money.

    I started laser two weeks ago for the first time. I can tell a huge difference as far as the shadow goes.
