Laser, Wax or Razor?

Landing strip, lightning bolt, bald eagle -- no matter how you're manicured, the trend is "less is more" down there. But how do you tame your wazoo? Bethenny strips down, lasers it off and explains all.




Bethenny's dermatologist Dr. Howard Sobel says he's seeing more of his patients, both men and women turning to laser. The trend is less hair all over. It's more of an investment, but do you want to lease or buy? Lasering is the buy. Waxing or razoring is the lease.

Hair on the belly, toes and boobies -- women get hair in some crazy places. Dr. Sobel zaps you with all the info on what you need to know about laser hair treatments.
Laser Treatments for Less:
- Daily deal sites like Groupon, LivingsSocial, YipIt, SweetJack and more regularly offer laser discounts.

- If you know of a location in your area that offers laser treatments, join their Facebook page and Twitter for insider deals. Also, if they have a newsletter, sign-up.

- Ask your dermatologist if he or she offers laser packages for less.

Whether your choice is laser, razor or wax -- we want to know… are you a fan of complete deforestation?

Expert Info: As a woman, as you get older hormonally, you lose the hair down there -- women and men. Natural aging process.

Laser on my lip and chin changed my life!!! I'm not kidding. I have dark hair and was so self conscious having people get close to me in case they saw my stubble, I hated it and plucking didn't work. I can't believe I waited so long!! It's so quick and you can find great groupon deals. It's been 1 year and now I only go back for touch ups!!!

Almost 62, but look much younger because of my wrinkle free skin. I use to just shave it all off stopped for awhile & it never really came back to it's normal state.and it's kind of silver, almost white, but so is my hair. Stopped coloring it last year due to migraines and it's silvery white, and very long.i love both ends. The moral of the story, if you wait long enough you won't have to shave or color, and I think for my age, I look good. You can end this story with Kathy, as there are billions of them. What is it about you Berhenny that would make me reveal this, and I'm sober, whew, I need a skinny girl martini( or two) ! I'm Scots- German & French- Irish, look like a Swedish lady!

Laser is the best money I ever spent. If I calculate how much I spent on waxing one a month by the number of years, it would have paid for laser treatments many times over. I did my bikini, legs, armpits and now I am going to do my arms. I use a numbing creme the first time I start on a new area and after one treatment it is virtually painless. I hate, hate, hate hair.
