I'm looking for information regarding laser treatments to remove facial hair.

I'd like to do something about the hair on my face (I'm female). Until now I've been using depilatory creams, but I'd like a permanent solution. Are laser treatments the way to go? I understand that it's easier than electrolysis, and that I'm an ideal candidate for laser treatments since I'm very fair-skinned with dark hair.
How many treatments are generally needed?
Do I need to let my facial hair grow (i.e. not remove it) to a certain length before starting? (I'd feel very awkward going out and about like that)
Are there any after-effects like pain, burning or redness?
Any personal anecdotes for or against would be much appreciated.
