Laser hair removal

I have black coarse hair on my legs, just about all the way up. When I shave my thighs I get bad bad razor burn everywhere except for the tops. And because of this awful razor burn, i can only shave my thighs like every 6 days. So I'm looking into laser hair removal. Sick of wearing pants in the summer in Texas lol have you had it?? Is there a method I should use? I know they have so many different treatments. Also, how many sessions did it take for you to remove whatever you were removing?

I decided I'd rather save up for electrolysis than do laser.

Electrolysis uses a needle and destroys the hair follicle. Laser uses a laser and is not permanent.

I don't think either of them are particularly comfortable.

I have done two sessions so far and the results have been very good. Everyone I know has had permanent results with laser.

Laser is great, especially if you have dark hair and light skin. It will take a few sessions, depending on where you go. A spa type place will usually require more sessions because they do not use a machine as powerful as what an actual plastic surgeon would. A plastic surgeon will cost a bit more but it takes about 1/3 of the sessions.
