I have the same ethnicity and same problem. Two years ago when I was living in my country, it was very hard to find any electrologist, let alone experienced electrologist. On the other hand, laser treatment was offered by many dermatologists. Although , lagirl and others advised me against using laser on face but I was so desperate that I still took a chance. I naturally have small forehead, above that I had relatively long black hair all over my forehead. These long hair on my forehead gave the impression of my head hair touching the eyebrows. on both sides of the forehead there were patches with 3/4 inches long hair, some of them seemed to blend with head hair and some of them just stand out.
So, I went ahead with laser, which worsened my cheeks and neck hair problem. I grew a lot of hair on my neck and cheeks which didn't stop growing in two years. They just grew longer and longer until I started trimming+bleaching them. On the other hand, if I compare the condition of my forehead, it is much better than before. I have light brown fuzz on my forehead but those 3/4 inches long hair on both side of the forehead are gone. My eyebrows dont seem to touch my head hair anymore. I am not sure what is the exact reason for my forehead responding differently to laser. Maybe, this is because of the coarser hair. Other reason might be that forehead hair are not hormone trigger hair.
It is very hard to comment on your forehead problem without looking at the pictures. but I would still suggest you to try removing hair on your forehead, without tampering with natural hairline. This may make your forehead look broader as it did to me. Also, hair grew back to be lighter and didn't give me an artificial look.
