In brief: Yes, but...

The energy may need to be adjusted depending on several factors, and it may be worthwhile doing a test spot if there is any question.
The eyes should always be protected.

In brief: Generally yes

But certain areas may be more sensitive to the thermal injury and may experience a burn or pigmentation loss.

In brief: Laser hair removal

Laser hair removal is safe only if done safely.
Higher than recommended settings can cause burns, skin color changes or scarring. The risks are higher in darker skin types or individuals with a tan
