Laser Hair Removal : Generally laser hair removal is safe. Any part of the body can be treated. Darker skin or lighter hair will not work as well. The more contrast between the skin and hair the better. Costs vary. $300-500 a treatment. 3-5 treatments, and a occasional touch up. Pain? Usually uncomfortable but not too bad. Topical creams can be used if needed.
