Laser: Laser hair removal is the most effective. You can also try electrolysis but this takes many visits, is somewhat painful and harder to get to all the hairs than laser.
Created for people with ongoing healthcare needs but benefits everyone.

Over time the hair does tend to come back with laser( it was thought to be permanent at one time) but not with electrolysis.
