Will the laser be a good option for a white male who has black forearm hair and wants to reduce the density (less hairs per area) as a means to "lighten" the area?

I am not seeking permanent removal - just less hairs growing there.

If it is an option, will the hair that grows back look patchy or natural?

Unfortunately, the forum is a bit skewed with posts discussing laser disasters where people are unhappy with treatment and results, and the positive situations are not mentioned.

Would be interested in hearing the good, the bad, and the ugly with regard to forearm hair treatment.

I wouldnt recommend it. Laser at best will come out with a atchy appearance. When it comes to thinning, electrolysis is the only way to go.

Don’t do it!
I made this mistake a few years ago, ended up with laser hair stimulation on my upper arms. Continued with another laser that was more suited to my skin tone but discontinued that now because all it’s done is made the hair grow very long and thin, looks awful!
