I currently live oversees and will for several years, I dont have the flexibility of schedule to see a professional or I would. However I would like to pursue hair removal for my back and shoulders. I have Moderate to heavy Hair on my upper back and shoulders, and a mild amount of hair on my mid back. The Hair is relatively thick, and while the hair on my head and arms are blond with a red hue, and my facial hair is red. The hair on my back and shoulders seems relatively brown in color. I do a lot of athletic and outdoor activities, and find that while my hair is a little imbarassing to me, the biggest thing is that it can get pretty uncomfortable under my backpack and just from the rubbing of athletic cut t-shirts
Here are my desires:
I would like some thing that has a permanent effect. Not neccessarily permanent complete loss but significant reduction of number and size would be addequate. Even if it is only over time.
I would like something that I dont have to spend 4 hours doing once a week.
I have used some epilators and they only remove the surface hair and dont seem much better that shaving. The short stiff hairs itch and are just as uncomfortable under load as pre-treatment.
I have some concerns about laser options that require precise placement of the laser because, while I am very flexible, I am not flexible enough to get everywhere, and I dont think my neck could take that anyway. For this reason I am intrigued by patch type treatments.
However I am educated in the ways of deceptive advertisement and research in the medical comunity. Soo… I dont want to purchase something that has trumped up claims. Any additional info on what some of you pros think might be my best plan of attack would be great.
