In brief: Risks are few

While all lasers have the potential to burn and no treatment is 100% effective laser hair removal performed by experienced hands is safe and effective.
Beware of cut-rate places with poor supervision and inexperienced operators.

In brief: Yes

I had laser hair removal from my back.
It hurt but the results have lasted. I required three treatments to remove 95% of the hair. You need to keep out of the sun while you are being treated to avoid darkening of the sklin.
