Question
My son is very hairy and would like to laser the top of his back as in the summer he sweats a lot. Is this included in the prohibition of "Lo Yilbash..."?
Answer
Shalom U'veracha, It is definitely included in this prohibition and would therefore be prohibited if it is simply for aesthetics. If there is a real reason there is place to allow it. Kol Tuv
