In brief: Laser hair removal
In any area does not utilize ionizing radiation, and the laser energy penetrates only a mm or two, so there is never any risk of deeper tissue damage or concern.
If performed properly, the hair is gone. Side effects can be redness, blistering, inflammation, folliculitis, etc. Infection or scarring are rare. Skin in this area is tender, so treatment parameters and intensity needs experienced care.
