Most guys with “excess hair” just want it gone. However, if the chest pattern were better, nearly all would keep the hair. Sure, back hair should be all gone. But then, the chest?
I never “start at the top and clear it all off” because this could leave the person with a very strange look if they cannot complete the treatments. So, as I’m illustrating here this morning, I “reverse the hair growth pattern” until it looks right to the person.
With the fellow pictured here, I cleared off the distal/longitudinal strips on the belly. Our plan is to get a thinning of the entire chest, not total removal. So, these strips “go” first.
After this clearing we will wait 2 - 3 months and when he comes back I will clear the entire chest AND the area that I have just cleared off. In this way, these two lateral strips will have had 2-clearances and the rest of the chest only 1-clearance. This should produce a “feathered look” that is common on the stomach.
Later on we can so some refinements, or actually remove all of it. The client is not sure yet, so I’m going with a strategy that can be adjusted along the way. (Photos speak for themselves.)
