Hello - I am a 29 year old male with a Fitzpatrick 5 skin type. I have extensive hair of my chest, shoulders, arms, legs, and some areas of my back.
About three years ago I decided to have my upper body hair removed with laser. Unfortunately - I believe hair growth was induced on my upper arms, shoulders and back. There may have been a very modest (maybe 5%) reduction of my chest hair - but certainly not worth the investment (had approximately 8 treatments @ 300$/treatment with the LightSheer Duet at the Jewish General Hospital - Dr Billick’s Dermatology Clinic - Check out my previous posts for details on settings, etc).
Now that I have a stable income, I have decided to pursue electrolysis. Because of the extensive area of that I would like to have cleared - I have decided to do this in stages - starting with my upper arms. I went for my first set of electrolysis sessions this week. My initial goal is to obtain 100% clearance of my upper arms in two weeks. I have currently completely clears my right upper arm (took 4 hours)- and I will start my left arm next week. My electrologist is using a thermolysis method.
I have posted a picture of my left arm (untreated) and picture of my right arm (treated). Will post more pictures as my sessions progress.
