Re: remove very dark arm hair

Lighten and darken blend modes are useful for this type of thing

Re: remove very dark arm hair

A different approach to D&B. I used a duplicate layer, coverted to B&W, inverted and applied as overlay at around 50% opacity. With a black mask, paint out the hairs with white brush. This will only fade the hairs. Create a merged layer from the results, and use that layer to repeat the above process. About three times will get to where my image is. Some heal and clone tool to tidy up and fix colour by taking an eyedropper sample from the hand, fill a blank layer and paint onto the arm in colour blend mode as necessary. It would have been easy to make the arms completly hairless from this point, but I felt that leaving some trace of hair looked more realistic.

Re: remove very dark arm hair

I've just made an attempt with Frequency separation, the low frequency layer with median.
It's absolutely not as good as santajuana, but it gives the impression that the hair are shorter. so I've decided to post it as it could help for other purposes (I'm thinking of baby hair, or torso hair) HTH!
PS: The other arm is untouched, for comparison purposes
