    I've done it (underarms, bikini, and legs!) and it's one of the best things I've chosen to do. I would say the main drawback is the cost - it is $$$. And, if you have any blonde hair (which I do), the laser can't see it, so I didn't end up 100% hairless as I thought I would. I've done 6 sessions and might do one more.

      I am in the process right now and just finished my 2nd session. I did see results after the 1st session and can't wait until this hair is gone! I am doing my underarms, sideburn area, bikini. It is pricey but I could care less at this point!

        I did it three years ago. It was great - for awhile - but is growing back more each year.

        I don't recommend you waste the money.

          My sister was doing it and it was working really great. But she had to stop when she got pregnant so it started growing back in. She said it barely hurt and she only had to shave once a week instead of every day.

            I would ask your doctor as to whether they've done any long-term studies about it in the under arms. There are so many glands there...

              Thanks for the feedback ladies.

              That is a good point Natasha... Sigh... I hate the 5 o'clock pit shadow...

                I read that it works best on NOT tanned skin, so try to schedule your appointments before tanning season.

                  I had it done two years ago and only needed four treatments. Worked great for me as I have pale skin and black hair. There's still some very fine hair that grew back but it's not noticeable enough for me to shave regularly.

                    I'm in the process now of doing underarms and full brazilian bikini. So far with one session it's been awesome! I already notice a HUGE improvement. I have pale skin with dark hair so I was a good candidate for it.. can't wait til it's done. I may also do legs after but gotta figure in costs..
