    Genes gave me chest hair. As a teenager, I wasn't terribly bothered. Over the years, since outwardly joining the gay community over twenty years ago, I have mostly kept a smooth, albeit occasionally prickly chest. I've epilated a variety of ways: Nair, wax, shaving.

    I'm now contemplating laser removal. Sounds effective and permanent, but a little pricey and even painful.

    Anybody care to share your laser chest hair removal experience? Guess, as I'm ageing, I'm up against a biological clock as some of my chest hair is turning super-blond and even gray... Apparently, hair follicles need pigment (that's to say, cannot be gray or blonde) to be removable with laser treatment…

    p.s. Over the years, many guys have intoned that I should let my chest hair be. I know some prefer the hairy aesthetic. Truth be told, I'm indifferent on other guys but definitely prefer smooth on me. Hair conceals definition, for one thing.

    I think that hair accentuates depth and definition.

    So far, Response FAIL!

    He asked what best way for him to remove his chest hair.

    I would offer my advice, but have none, sorry.

    And I responded by telling him to give me his chest hair, which is technically one way he can get rid of his chest hair.

    Laser hair reduction is a great method, but it's costly and entails some effort (shaving prior to, after care). I'm thinking of going back to waxing. Truth be told, I've tried each method only once.

    for me waxing if done once or twice, then third time it is less painful and less hair grow, they are also finer.

    Laser hair removal hurts more than a tattoo. :/

    It is such a judgment call and you are the judge. Laser with careful planning and references from successful clients seems a reasonable choice.

    On the budget side, have you considered a Chore Boy and Comet?
