Sounds like he over did the procedure , maybe go to another Dermatologist see if he can repair it, and then see if the original one will pay for the repair .good Luck

Hello Asian, If you have been plucking your upper lip hair without any problem, you can continue doing so. Be careful when plucking, and don't pluck too far down the upper lip to prevent thick hair from growing on your cheeks. The thick hair will definitely not spread. Plucking may cause redness and rash, but if you have been plucking with no problems, carry on with it. You could also keep practicing threading until you get the hang of it, since threading is easier and quicker than plucking. And Undergo electrolysis to remove upper lip hair. When you have this procedure, the therapist inserts a needle into the hair follicle and sends an electrical current to the hair root that destroys the root. It is expensive, painful and time consuming but can provide permanent hair removal.Thnaks for join with us.
