No: A laser is a single wavelength of light that does not scatter and matches the color of the hair follicle which it is aimed out. It should be purfectly safe to have done.

No: Laser hair removal is an effective way to treat unwanted hair even on the neck. Potential problems include the risk of skin discoloration. Discuss the risks and benefits with your treating physician.
