A 19-year-old female asked:

Could homeopathy be useful and make the hair on a 20 years old girl face go away even after 12 useless sessions of diiode laser? ps: i have acne too!

No: Don't waste your money on homeopathy for excess facial hair. Naturopathy and homeopathy can be useful in other ailments but if you have true excess facial hair, the cause needs to be found. Start with ob/gyn as acne and facial hair can be hormone related.

Facial hair: Homeopathy would not directly treat unwanted hair on your face, but may help underlying difficulties in your restorative system that lead to this. I agree with my colleague about first consulting an endocrinologist, since ovarian or other issues may contribute to your acne and facial hair. An experienced homeopathic physician might also be able to help by prescribing a deep-acting medicine.

Hair needs pigment: In order to be effective with laser removal. Blonde and red hair won't work with the laser and if that is what you have than the person you went to is not qualified. Try waxing or electrolysis.
