Hi! Laser hair removal is a very safe procedure if done by a qualified dermatologist. Each laser has its own requirements for treatment. A good sun protection is must after the procedure. Laser hair removal requires multiple sessions. Do understand the pre and post care requirements from the treating doctor.  Do not expect magic. The results are not instant.
Next Steps
Start using a good sunscreen to get the hang of it.
Health Tips
Take sessions from a well-qualified dermatologist

IPL is the worst laser. Recurrence is inevitable. Before laser, lots of investigations and examination are required. Consult a good dermatosurgeon who have laser experience.
