Removing body hair for women, is it permissible?

If a married woman has body hair, is she allowed to have it waxed/lasered by a trustworthy person? As her intention is to be clean and please her husband. These days shavers are so bad and the hair grows much thicker and can become seriously irritable and thus make a person become emotionally sick.

Answer
