What would be able to make hair less noticeable? I have very hairy arms/legs and want to get rid of it.

Would it be better to get laser or electrolysis? I know I want electrolysis for my stomach area and back but I am not sure if I want to be completely hair free on my arms/legs.

If you have dark hair and light skin - then a Gentle Lase Laser is what you need.
Approx 3-5 session will give reduction.

My understanding is, if the hair is dark, but very thin, laser will not be effective because it will not "see" the hair. Is that correct?
