If you haven't tried this yet, get on the bandwagon. Laser hair removal will save your schedule from everyday shaving and every-few-weeks waxing. We especially love laser hair removal when it comes to underarms, where no matter how close you get with a razor, the roots still seem to show. During laser hair removal, a highly concentrated beam of light is aimed at the hair, which drastically slows the hair's growth (the laser's feel is like the snap of a rubber band).

In general, the results last from several months to several years. The procedure costs several hundred dollars a session, will require several visits and will probably need to be repeated on occasion However, this semi-permanent hair removal will make you feel great in your strapless wedding gown. It also can be used on the face for pesky hairs on the upper lip or chin. Now that's a wedding gift you can really appreciate.
