  • You can have it done on any area of the body, face, legs, even more personal areas. However, it's usually around $3000 to $5000 and takes a number of trips. It's rather painful and can cause burns and scarring. And for many people the hair will grow back in as little as 8 months.

  • it does for some, better or less so for others. the laser doesn't 'read' light-colored hair, so it won't get work on white/gray (so i've been told). the results vary for different people. i think the first pack of treatments can cost several hundred dollars (depending on how much/what area(s) you want treated), and then you go back every 6wks or so for maintenance, which is less costly.
    to me, if you have to go back for maintenance, its not permanent.
    i'd rather wax.
