I tried eight treatments with the alexandrite laser over 15 months on my upper body. I am a man with type II skin and brown hair. I have to say that the results varied quite a bit. For example, I have 90+ percent reduction of the hairs on my lower back and lower abdomen. It looks pretty good in these areas.
However, on my middle back, middle abdomen, and much of my chest, I got about 75% reduction. The hairs that grow back are finer than originally.
Unfortunately, on the upper back, shoulders, sternum and nipple areas, I have very little removal of hair. After every treatment, I get large amounts of pepper spots in these areas. After about six weeks, the regrowth gradually thickens and darkens.
I’ve read various hair removal boards for a while and noticed similar trends on other men. It’s rare to find any man who has anything positive to say about LHR on the face, neck, or shoulders.
