In brief: Laser hair removal

There are many methods of hair removal from shaving to waxing to threading to tweezing to depilatory creams, however the best way to significantly reduce hair of color is to have laser treatments performed.
The hair must be colored--preferably brown or black--to see a good result. Typically a person needs between 4-6 treatments to give the appearance of smooth hairless skin.
