Days: Shaving will cause it to grow back quickly, just like on your face, and possibly darker and coarser. For longer result, waxing may last a month or so, as well as possibly cause it to regrow lighter and finer (especially after multiple times). Laser treatments are expensive but can have results lasting 7-10 years or more.
