Hi! I’m a 24 years old really hairy guy. After strugglin with body hair like everybody here, since I was 15, I am a bit more peacefull with it today. I tolerate the chest and abdomen hair, trim it sometimes… But the back hair remains a huge taboo!
I especially hate the hair growing in the back of my neck which obsesses me day after day.
I have had 2 laser treatments (diode) when I was younger (20) and I guess I can’t really accuse it of not working since 2 treatments is really not enought to judge + I was so young.
I have recently moved to California, where the beach and the pool are a problem for hairy-backed people! I waxed once, its all good since i was really carefull with the exfoliating + moisturizing techniques (btw I suggest very strongly the Clinique body exfoliating paste 2 times a week + Aveeno Positively Smooth moisturizer, 2 times a day for waxed/ shaved areas… The ingrown hair are reduced to the minimum and the skin stays really soft.) Since the hair grows back way too fast I am really tempted by going to do laser ASAP, especially on my neck and shoulder, while waxing the bottom of the back for now.
My question would be simple: after reading the pros and the cons of everyone, Can ANYBODY tell me about a true successful laser hair removal (men’s hair please!!) on his back / shoulders… Was anybody truly satisfied with their treatments with a decent amount of sessions? I am an ideal candidate and my practicionner was using the laser to the strongest it can be.
ALSO: Any suggestions on where to go in the Los Angeles area? I saw lots of ads in the paper but I am aware of the dangers of being treated by an incompetent practicionner, so I dont mind paying more to get decent painless treatments.
So if anybody has good results that last, PLEASE let me know… Because I might just stick with the cheap solution: wax…
