2213: Permanent hair removal


This is another question about hair removal, please forgive me if it seems trivial. There are procedures for permanent removal of hair. Are these permissible for a woman or is it considered changing Allah's creation like plastic surgery? Because the hair will never grow back after this type of procedure.

Praise be to Allaah.

There is nothing wrong with using any method of removing the hair which we are commanded to remove (such as pubic hair and armpit hair) or the hair which we are permitted to remove (such as hair on the arms or legs), so long as the method used is not harmful – even if it means that the hair will not grow back again.

And Allaah knows best.
