Is there a safe way to prepare for bathing suit season by removing hair in "bikini area"?

I'm just thinking ahead to bathing suit season, and am wondering if there is a safe way to remove hair, either at home or at a salon? I've heard horror stories about women getting infections and things from professional hair removal.

I've actually had great success with laser hair removal in the bikini area. And I found a place that was pretty affordable, so it didn't cost me a fortune. I had it done back in 2001 and it's never grown back, so when they told me it was permanent, I guess they were right.... It makes it nice for me, because before whenever I shaved in that area, I would end up with red bumps afterwards because my skin is very sensitive. That wasn't too attractive when I wore a high cut swimsuit. So now I don't have to deal with that issue at all. I've thought about lasering my underarm hair as well so I don't have to shave there too, but just haven't gotten around to it. Anyway, I personally think the laser is the way to go.
