First off I am new to the forum and I am a complete newbie to hair removal (minus shaving). I think I have read all 248 pages of post on here and I need a little clarificaiton if you guys don’t mind.
First with the background and goals. I am a 30 year old male looking to get all of my body hair removed minus the head, face, and armpits. I am actually not very hairy but I have this aversion to body hair. I actually think that if I had a very hairy chest I might enjoy it more then what I have. My chest hair is somewhere in between hairy and not hairy which just looks silly to me. As far as back goes I have hardly any hair there, I just want ot get rid of the strays that come up on the upper back, lower back, and shoulders. Legs and arms are quite hairy, but not gorilla. Now I know this process will take a long time and a fair amount of money, I am ok with this. I do not have any real issues that make me need it gone now, so I am ok with putting in the work. For me this is a multiyear project.
My confusion is this. I have read a lot of post that talk about doing laser first for large areas and going back for electolysis for the remaining. If laser isnt permenant, wouldnt the hair just come back in 5, 10, 15 years? Granted it can be a long time, but if I am going to put in the work I want it gone for good. Or does the laser actually get rid of some of the hair permanetly and the rest temporarily?
Skin is white and pale, hair is dark.
Thanks for the help in advance.
