Hello. I am new to this forum. I am mid-30s male with light skin and differing hair characteristics. My hair on my chest is thick and dark. My hair on my back is thinner and less dark (medium). My hair on my shoulders is long (!) and dark. My hair on my arms is light, almost blonde. I would like to laser all areas – chest, back, shoulders and arms. Now, the question is – which laser is best for these areas?
Also, I have read over the promotional materials for various treatment centers and they say to shave the lasered area before treatment. I have also read messages on this board and others that suggest that after treatment, the hair sheds, which leads me to assume that the target area wasn’t shaved before treatment in those cases. So, am I missing something here? I am curious if shaving increases or decreases the effectiveness of treatment.
