Laser Hair Removal or waxing?

Hi guys, so my main trigger for picking my skin on my lower legs is incoming little hairs (after going more than 24 hrs without shaving). As soon as I feel my legs getting “spiky” I scratch.

Does anyone know if waxing or laser hair removal might help? Share your experience please. I appreciate all help

Waxing might cause ingrown hairs, but eventually it can cause the hair to come in finer. Worth a trial of it, however.

Doing laser could be an option after doing waxing....the hair would be softer and the follicle already producing a finer hair. Do the research on it to know what each can do for you and which one would be better to do ultimately..
