Best for Body Hair Removal?

Laser removal vs. IPL vs. Electrolysis
I feel that the Nd-YAG laser is the most effective for hair removal. It targets the pigmentation of the hair root, but can be used safely on any complexion from very fair to very dark skin.
IPL can be used on fair skin, but the results aren't as long lasting as with the Nd-YAG laser.
Electrolysis is best for removing gray or blonde hair (laser doesn’t work on these) or for small areas, like shaping the eyebrows.
