Laser treatment for hair removal

I've been shaving and waxing and epilating for years and now I've found the answer, I think. Laser treatment! It apparently doesn't hurt at all and it's permanant. It costs a bit, but no matter if it works.

Has anyone ever tried it or know of any reason not to go ahead with it?

I'm not a fan of cosmetic surgery, but this blurs the boundaries for me a bit...

It does hurt... But not much more than waxing. I've had it on my face (upper lip etc.) I have q dark hair naturally so had six sessions then six to eight top ups. It hasn't gone completely but is much better than it was. I stopped when pregnant and haven't bothered since so about a year and a half in total.

Wld recommend it, you can get cheaper deals on groupon.

I can recommend it but go to a clinic rather than a beauty salon as they use IPL which is not as effective.

Sk:n is the clinic I used and pretty decent. Think they have some special offers on laser at the mo.

Ooh, the salon I'm looking at offers IPL, what's the difference with what a clinic would do?
