In the Name of Allaah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salaamu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullaahi wa-barakaatuh.

  1. Laser treatments are permissible provided that they are not harmful to the body and the treatment does not involve violating the laws of Shari’ah.
  2. The above is permissible provided that it is not harmful to the body.
  3. That is permissible. However, one must ensure that the one administering the treatment is a mahram or a Muslim woman. It is not permissible to uncover the ‘awrah to a non-mahram male or a non-Muslim woman.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best.
