Bumps, stubble and irritation-causing procedures can be banished forever. A package of just three or four treatments can discourage new hair growth and repeated visits to the beauty parlor. A short 15 to 45-minute session at a licensed laser hair removal center can deliver long-lasting smooth skin with no bumps — a swimsuit and summer clothes ready body. It is one of the prime rituals for summer readiness for women as well as fashion- and grooming-conscious men.
