Using laser for hair removal

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: My question is that can we ladies use laser for hair removal from body and face as I have much hair on my body and face like men. So is it permissible to use laser?


A: If this treatment does not involve anything impermissible or exposing those parts of the body which are impermissible to expose or going to places which one is not allowed to go to (e.g. beauty parlours and salons), then it will be permissible. However since removing the hair in this manner is an unnatural way, we do not encourage it.

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