Wax=temp ,Laser=perm: Waxing tends to be a too early solution whereas laser offers the potential for a more long term solution but at a greater expense. This may requireultiple sessions over a year or more.

Time frame?: Laser hair removal requires multiple sessions - so it takes longer to do, but has the advantage of long-term hair reduction. Waxing gives a quicker result - but has the disadvantage of being temporary.
