Is it worth it? Does it hurt? Anything you can tell me from past experience with it?
I've noticed that most guys prefer little to no hair on a girl(arms, face, back etc.), and I'm sick and tired of being self-conscious about it so I think I might as well just do it and never worry over if it's noticeable or not ever again. I'll have to save up for it, but I think it'll be worth it. Should I go for it or not?

okay so first of all... if your under 18 dt do the laser hair removal now.. wait till your 18 and more or less "hormonally stable" and not while your in full growth spurt!
i did it when I was 16 and it ddnt work! and now I'm 19 and I did it again and I'm hair free ^^ and the older you get, the more efficient the removal is. (of course hair type plays a role too)
Anyway, before undergoing laser hair removal you have to shave the areas you want hair free first (with a razor so that the hair gets a bit thicker and thus easier to remove!)
it usually takes 5 to 6 sessions (a month apart) for the hair to be completely gone but you can see results after the 1st or the 2nd session!
YOU CANT GO SUNBATHING! the sun leaves HIDEOUS brown marks on the skin if you sunbathe after laser so be extra careful
as for the pain, well I guess it depends on the place but so far both the laser centers I've been to apply some sort of anesthetic cream an hour before the session and it cuts down a great deal of pain... also in the 2nd center I've been to they have this machine that blows REALLY REALLY freezing cold air on your skin while the laser is being used!
overall pain, on a scale from 1 to 10 (1 being the worst pain ever) in general and not-so-sensitive, areas of the body is 7..
in senstive areas it obviously increases the amount of pain.. for example armpits, bikini--> more like a 4/10...
hope it helps you with your decision
