Can I use a home laser hair removal device to thin out hair?

I am a male with very thick, dense, dark hair on my arms. I would like to thin out/reduce the amount of hair by about 20%-30%. Is it possible for me to do this with a home laser removal device such as Tria as oppose to getting it done by a professional? I want to make sure that the treatment does not result in patchiness.

At home devices rarely help hair. I suggest you see an expert for treatment options.  Best, Dr. Emer.
