I'm considering having laser hair removal treatment. It hasn't been around an extensive amount of time but so far people seem not to have issues with it (from what I know). That said, I feel skeptical about the longer-term effects but have no research to justify this.

I realize this question is FAR less important than ones aimed at resolving health issues but if anyone has leads or research to share, I'd appreciate it. Thanks!

I've not had any trouble and have had it done plenty of times all over my body. That said, it does totally depend on your skin type and hair type as far as how much and how often you'll need to have it done to see the best result. Lots of places offer free consults and there are Groupons galore for reduced cost visits.

Laser removal is pretty well established and mainstream by now, and quite safe. However, you still need to do your homework and make sure you go to a reputable provider. There are reports of people getting burned and scarred by incompetent/irresponsible technicians. There's also some risk of side effects like blistering and swelling, mostly minor stuff. Electrolysis is generally considered to be more painful than laser, and it takes a lot longer. It's OK for smaller areas though, and it could save you some money. Not recommended for larger areas, unless you're a masochist.

From what I hear, you have to find a reputable provider and your hair should be dark. I have not done it but considered it. The only thing that is stopping me is that my hair is not very dark.
