Hello Cat, thank you for the question.
Your best approach would be to consult an aesthetic practitioner or dermatologist who can examine the area and verify that the ‘moustache’ you are noticing after removing the hair is actually from hair.
Melasma, a form of pigmentation that typically presents on the upper lip described as a ‘coffee stain’ effect. The hair removal options available will therefore not address this form of pigmentation.
If there is no pigmentation contributing to the moustache like effect your best approach to remove unwanted hair is to consider permanent hair reduction using either laser hair removal, IPL/Bi-Polar Radiofrequency hair removal, or IPL hair removal.
