Seeking Opinions


I am a male with long, dark body hair on my legs and the lower part of my arms.

It is my hope to drastically decrease the amount of hair and/or thin it out. I don’t want to be be totally clean shaven, but instead hopefully have a smallish amount of thin hair. I realize things might not ever be 100% perfect, but I am hoping to get close to this. I am also looking for hopefully the cheaper treatment. I do not mind if one takes more visits, is painful, etc.

Based on this, does it sound like electrolysis or laser hair removal would be best for me?

Thanks in advance!

you didn’t say what is the color of your skin and if the hair is coarse. if it’s pretty light and hair is coarse and dense, a few treatments with a laser by an experienced tech could give you the results you want.

Thanks for the response.

Well, I am caucasian. I tan decently well and have ok color at the moment, but without a tan it certainly can be pale.

The hair in the areas I want significantly thinned out is quite coarse. It isn’t quite gorilla-like, but it certainly is long and thick.

Oh yes, also my hair is pretty dark.

laser would be a good option for you, especially if you’re only looking to thin it out. please read the FAQs on this board under the LASER section of the forum, or here for more info:

Thanks a lot for your help. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />
