Upgrade RAM on HP Notebook - 17-bs049dx

HP Recommended
HP Notebook - 17-bs049dx: Pavilion 6530
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I own a HP Notebook - 17-bs049dx which comes with 8 gb RAM installed. I wanted to add more RAM to speed it up. Can I upgrade it or do I have to let a professional do it? Also, from what I understand this Notebook can be upgraded to 16gb of RAM. Is that correct? How hard is it to upgrade this notebook?
