I had laser hair removal done on my back, shoulders, chest and abs at LCI Laser. They required me to shave the areas prior to the treatments. I did back and shoulders on one day and chest and abs on another day. I have brown skin and black hair. The experience wasn't terrible. There were some areas that were unpleasant like close to the neck but other than that it was bearable. This is the first of seven treatments so I don't know what the results will be in the long run but I will keep everyone posted.
