Hi i'm a 25 year old woman with some chin hair probably 15 or so and have had them since i was a teenager. I wouldn't suggest shaving my mother did that (where i got it from i think) and it made it much much worse and i have also seen people shave where it becomes dark under the skin looking terrible... I pluck the hair i have and have never had a problem where more hair has grown in (ive been doing this for 10 years) the few i have have come in darker with plucking but i don't get more than what i have. I don't believe that shaving doesn't cause problems cause when i shave my legs the hair gets darker and courser but when i wax it gets lighter and thinner. So if i were you i would pluck the few you have. dont wax your face i did that with the hair on my upper lip and broke out badely there which looked way worse but it did grow back lighter and it doesn't look dark at all can't even notice it... but i wouldn't suggest it at all if you are used to it then leave it alone... hope this has given you some options.
