Laser hair removal is a medical procedure that uses laser light — an intense, pulsating beam of light — to remove unwanted hair. Laser hair removal works by passing a light beam through the skin. The laser targets dark pigment, called melanin, in hair. When the light beam hits the hair follicle (where hair growth originates), the intense heat destroys the hair follicle instantly.

Laser hair removal is used for people who want to remove unwanted body hair. Common treatment locations include legs, armpits, upper lip, chin and bikini line. However, it is possible to treat unwanted hair in almost any area of the body.

Although laser hair removal doesn't guarantee permanent hair removal, it does extend the hair-free period, which can vary from several months to many years. With multiple treatments, long-term hair removal is possible.

I got on the laser hair removal bandwagon fairly early on - starting treatments when I was a junior in college, around 2002, continuing on and off until today (literally, I just got a treatment three hours ago).     I first heard about the wonders of laser hair removal from a fairly trustworthy source: mom.  My mother had gotten her entire body "laz'd," as we dubbed it, and vowed it was the best thing that had happened to her since she discovered you could just eat brownie …
