For what it’s worth ... my recommendation:
With laser, it might actually be too successful and not give you the look you want.
By contrast, electrolysis can give you the precise/exact look you want. With a lot of guys, I will spend, say, 1 - 2 hours thinning one arm. To make it easier for me, I will zap only the hairs in anagen stage (this gives me a very easy way to thin the area without too much thought). There is NO need to shave (and you should NOT), because we can easily identify anagen hairs by looking at the “virgin growth.”
Then, leave it alone for a couple months. If you like this look, you are finished. If not, you can go ahead and do a little thinning and follow the same strategy.
I have worked with two guys that did laser on their forearms. It worked well on the top (coarse hairs), but not on the finer hairs below. So, I had to remove these fine hairs and try to make the thing look “normal.” I got it looking better, but, actually, not very “natural” looking ... sorry to say. Both had a streak of bare skin right down the middle!

I’m female from India, my brother is with skin tone III. He's 27 years old and recently he got laser treatment for beard shaping. As he has thick hair growth and it is pretty dense too, so laser treatment was helpful in maintaining the hair growth in the area. He only took two laser sessions.
The Les CosMedics Clinic, Rajouri Garden, Delhi, is a recognized and modern cosmetic treatment clinic. His dermatologist used LightSheer Duet for my skin type. It is recommended to consult only board certified physician for laser treatment. There was no side effect after the treatment and it has already been seven months since my last laser session. You can consult your physician for the forearm laser hair removal and can get the desirable result.
