Facial hair re-moval help???
please could someone help me with some info..

I have facial hair growing all over my face-mostly upper lip and sides of face.

I was told I have a high level of androgens..I am female,and this is a recent problem.
The thing is I don't know how to remove the hair.
I have tried wax,but my skin was so sensitive afterwards and red for a few days.
Can I use a hair re-moval cream on my face(EG:veet or Mandy's)

does any one have a better cream to use?
I know about lasers,but I need a quick fix-saving for laser

PLease help.
Is there a facial hair removal cream out there

thanks everyone,

Dear Hairy Face
You can use the hair removal cream for sensitive skin but it still may cause irritation and redness. Did you wax at a salon or tried yourself? Have you been to a gynecologist to see if they can stabilize your hormone levels?
