Or, if you're unlucky like me, you'll go for 12 or more sessions and still not get rid of it all. Luckily, mine didn't cost that much, but I had it done several years ago (for about a three-year period) and it's still not all gone.
Besides laser hair removal (which works in most cases but is expensive), you have the choice of waxing, Nair, trimming or shaving.
I do all of the above or have at some point. Find what works for you.
I've found the following is best for me:
Upper back/shoulders (only if I don't use Nair)
Chest/stomach (summer time only or when lean)
Pubes (some people like to shave, I prefer it closely trimmed)
*I used Nair on my chest/stomach once. I will NEVER do that again.
*I waxed my chest/stomach once. I will never do that again. My hair is too thick and I had too many ingrown hairs. But it looked great! And damn, it hurt. Just like in the movie 40-Year-Old Virgin.
