The concept behind permanent hair removal, aka laser hair removal or ipl hair removal is the use of laser beams to target hair follicles, the source of hair strands, and destroying them.
In a survey by RealSelf Community, its members gave it a rating of 69% positive reviews. Having first-hand experience of going through the process at laser clinics, I can say that it is costly as you have to go for multiple sessions, hence why I have opted to buy myself a hair removal machine to use at home (click here to view the 2016-2017 list of top machines you should be looking at if you are interested in permanent hair removal at home)
However the higher prices at laser clinics have not deterred many a celebrities from frying out their unwanted body hair. A few have opened up on their experiences about this treatment below.
The Keeping up with the Kardashians star has a lot of positive comments to make in regards to her laser hair removal experience. Having an Armenian background, she was definitely obsessed with laser hair removal and having hairless, flawless skin.
She had her arms, bikini line, legs and underarms done. This information was revealed to the Allure magazine.

She’s a little bit within withdrawn unlike her elder sister but she also had laser hair treatment done on the show Keeping up with the Kardashians. But she also came out to state how it had worked like a charm. She said that the laser treatment left her feeling so clean all over her body.
The beautiful Lilly Ghalichi of Shah’s of sunset had this to say about her laser hair removal treatment experience, “Growing up, I had the worst experience with hair removal.” She says that she used to shave her armpits and bikini only to get terribly irritated razor burns and in-grown hair i.e. hair that grows within the hair follicle. This left her feeling miserable and downcast. She went on to state that the experience was so humiliating, particularly during the summertime. “As a woman, it’s hard to be hairy!” And she is very grateful for the technological advancement for the introduction of laser hair removal. She first tried laser hair removal in college and has had it done on her underarms, bikini area and face and she is very blissful with the results.
The Today Show star also had laser hair treatment done on her arms during one of her live broadcasts. Kathie Lee, her co-host, gave her moral support by holding her hand during the procedure. Hoda described it as leaving her feeling chilly like a cold blast
Not everyone enjoyed a date with the laser treatment. Alyssa had laser hair removal in 2006 and described it as unbearable. She hated the experienced so much that she claimed she would rather get her whole body tattooed daily instead.
Although he hasn’t come out in public to declare whether he’s had laser hair treatment, there’s speculation that Kanye has undergone the treatment. He was spotted leaving a laser hair removal clinic with his baby mama, Kim, and for now all we can do is speculate.
For the rest of us that aren’t celebrities, we can’t afford the extensive treatments celebrities get to remove their hair permanently, we can only rely on the home hair removal machines.
