I would love to get something like that done. I am not sure, however where you would look for creditials on something like that. Cosmotology Board? Just a guess.

i would say ask your dermatologist...i think they do it..also, you could look at the American Laser Center's website and see if they have locations by you-they do all of that stuff specially and have PSs and doctors working there i believe. i thought it was supposed to last forever but..i checked the ALC's website and they say if you grow hair back within the first 2 years they will redo it for free..so i'm not really sure. i think you need to get multiple sessions done..and i know you have to wait a certain amount of time in between, no tanning etc...i would really loveee to get it done though

that link explains clearly yet detailed how laser hair removal works and why.
note where they mention that the best candidates have dark hair and fair skin.
if you've got fair hair and fair skin or dark hair and dark skin then make sure you find someone that's worked with a lot people like that- or you'll risk really bad scarring.
