Do you remove hair from your forearms?

(1/10) > >>

ChrissyRyan:
I have been reading much about mtf hair removal but I have not seen much about removing hair from our forearms.  Do you?  If so, do you do this removal by shaving, epilation, electrolysis, laser, chemically, waxing, or another way?  Or do you bleach it, or do you just let it be?

While I have shaved a little on the bottom side (palm side) of the forearms, mostly because there were almost no hairs there, I have not chosen to remove the top side hair of the forearms.  That is because almost all of the hairs are blonde.  They also seem to be thinner hairs than in the past.  The arms are not as hairy either, but that could be an illusion if now almost all of the hairs are very light and thin.

I use IPL on the palm side of my forearms, but after I start hrt and its winter time I'm going to wax my full arms and really help thin it out. Hopefully between the hrt and destroying a few follicles it will look how I want it to. Less hairy than now but not completely bald.

I truly despise the hair on my arms but I am not sure what would work.  Unfortunately, it extends onto my hands and knuckles. I cannot see shaving or waxing as very feasible.  If I were awash in money I'd probably give laser a try even though the skin is pretty dark (there are a lot of black hairs).  If I could get rid of those, I'd probably be ok with bleaching the white hairs.

Everyone is different, and so are their HRT medicines and dosages, but my doctor told me that starting HRT should have a fairly good effect on arm hair thinning out, and hair on the hands being all but gone. I hope that is the case, because my hair is dark and thicker than I would wish. I hate it greatly!

Time will tell I suppose.

Rakel:
I have been on HRT for over 3 years and I have lost most of my body hair below the neck. I did have a few sessions of laser and electrolysis, but most of the hair loss below the neck was due to HRT. I have tried waxing and shaving my arms and legs a few times. With what little I have on my arms and legs, shaving once a month is sufficient for now. Later on, I may continue with the electrolysis.

Of course, everyone's results will be different, so we just do what we must.  :-\
