Benefits of Bikini Laser Hair Removal
Hair in the bikini area can be incredibly frustrating. Left alone, it is very likely to show at the edges of your bathing suit. If you shave your bikini area, you may struggle with telltale signs like bumps, which aren’t much better than the hair itself. Razor bumps are itchy, red, and may become clogged with ingrown hair.
Which Bikini Laser Treatment is Right for me?
There are a number of “styles” of bikini hair removal. Believe it or not, these styles can come and go just like trends in fashion. For this reason, we encourage clients to consider their own personal preference as their treatment approaches.
Basic Bikini Laser
The basic bikini laser permanently reduces hair that would sit right at, and possibly outside of, the leg of a bathing suit or panties. As it sounds, it is the minimal area of treatment. This need not be perceived as a limitation. In fact, the Basic may be ideal for those new to laser hair removal, for individuals concerned about their tolerance for laser treatment, and for teens.
Full Bikini Laser
A full bikini treats the area within the swimsuit or panty-lines, up to about 4 finger-widths from the center. Hair may also be treated at the uppermost area, closer to the abdomen, and can go as low as you wish, down to the labia.
Brazilian Bikini Laser
The Brazilian Bikini Laser treatment is the most popular. It enables you to feel clean and fresh all the time, in bikini or not. The name “Brazilian Bikini” laser treatment stems from the prevalence of thongs worn in Brazil. In order to accommodate the thong bikini, the trend in Brazil has been to removal all hair in the pubic region. A Brazilian hair removal treatment permanently reduces hair from the front to the back. Specifically, the bikini line and central front area, the labia, and the perianal region.
To have a Brazilian doesn’t mean that you go Full-Monty. If you prefer, a strip of hair can be left at the central front region of the bikini area.
Will Hair Come Back after the treatment?
Laser hair removal cannot be referred to as permanent, even though it is the longest lasting method of hair removal that exists today. Generally, we say that it is possible to achieve permanent hair reduction through a series of laser treatments. In most cases, patients do not see regrowth for several years. When regrowth does occur, it is usually minimal.
Periodic touch-ups are all that is needed to maintain the results of the initial treatment plan.
Can Men Do it too?
In recent years, men have become much more comfortable about discussing the discomfort caused by pubic hair. We have seen an increase in the number of men interested in a more permanent solution to unwanted hair, and support them by performing discreet, comfortable treatments to meet their needs.
The word “Manscaping” didn’t appear out of nowhere; it reflects men’s desire to look their best and to feel comfortable. Men visit our NYC office for laser hair removal on the chest, armpits, face, pubic area, and more, and their comfort is always a high priority.
How to prepare for Bikini Laser Hair Removal
There isn’t much you need to do before laser hair removal except stop any plucking or waxing you have been doing. We need hair to be in the follicles in order for your laser treatments to be effective. We don’t need to see it, though, so feel free to shave right up until your visit.
Due to the nature of laser energy, we also suggest that you schedule laser hair removal during a time you can forego the tan. It doesn’t matter if your tan comes from the sun, from tanning lamps, or from a bottle, as it will affect the efficacy of laser treatment and may require additional sessions
