Does laser hair removal for men's body hair work?

I'm a guy in his mid-twenties who wants to get rid of the hair on my chest and pubic area. I have dark hair and light skin which I heard is better for laser treatment. My main concern is that laser hair removal will irritate my skin as these are sensitive areas and that it won't be as effective as my hair is thicker than female body hair. If anyone could address these concerns that'd be great!
