Laser Hair Removal

There is a certain part of my chest on my left side that has grown hair since I was a teenager. I have a particular birthmark there that is a darker patch of skin where I seem to get a lot more hair growth. Thicker and darker. It’s uneven with the other side of my chest. I usually shave it. But that’s bothersome. I’ve considered getting laser hair removal there. As well as a few other places. :)

The only thing is, it’s very expensive and take several treatments over the course of months. On top of that it’s not always permanent.

I came across a home laser hair removal device that is FDA approved and seems to have positive results after several treatments. It’s called the TRIA laser hair removal system and costs $600. That’s cheaper then going and getting it done. Plus you own it, so you can use it over and over again and even share it with other people.

I was wondering if any of you have ever heard of this or used it? The ladies on this forum also seem curious and of the ones that have used it, say it works. They just advise that you shouldn’t use it on your face (not something I planned on doing) although some women have used it on their face.

I’m also kind of curious about using it on the rest of my chest, maybe one treatment thought. Just to thin it out, not to completely remove. Do you think that would work?

I can only imagine devices like this will get cheaper over time.

  1. It’s interesting that the area concerned is a birthmark. I was born with a small birthmark in my pubic area. The only time I was slightly embarrassed over it was when I was prepubescent.  Because back in those days the birthmark grew a few hairs – long before I had normal pubic hair.  So when I had pubic hair, it actually hid the birthmark and its hairs.

    Why don’t you write to ‘Consumer Reports?’  They must be familiar with this laser device and its level of reliability!  Good luck to you!
