Permanent hair removal

Q: Can a woman go for permanent body hair removal using laser theraphy? This process destroys the hair follicles. Is this allowed in Islam?

A: If this treatment does not entail exposing the satr areas to anyone and it does not have harmful side effects then it will be permissible.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
