I had laser hair removal to my axillary (arm pits) and bikini. It took 5 treatments for total hair loss. It has been 4 months now and I have no hair growing in those areas.
I always felt like I had a 5 o'clock shadow on my arm pits no matter how often I shaved, and my bikini area always got little red bumps from shaving.
This is so worth it. The pain was very minimal. I suggest everyone do this!
