I suggest looking for a diode or alexandrite laser over IPL. Practitioner skill is the most important thing. Try getting a few treatments on a smaller area to see if you like the result. You may need to get your parents’ permission.

If you like the result, you can try larger areas. Just make sure you have realistic expectations. It’s rare to remove all the hairs in an area completely with laser, but it can reduce thgem significantly, sometimes permanently.
