In brief: Laser hair removal
Electrolysis is going the way of the dinosaur. It is still the only method for long term removal of light hair but your ages a very long time as it is 1 hair at a time.
Both electrolysis and laser hair removal have to be done multiple times. The gentlelase is one of the best lasers for hair removal and is much less likely to scar or have side effects due it's patented cold spray.
