Bikini Laser Hair Removal

 Laser hair removal will reduce hair growth in your bikini area by up to 90% making it the number one long-term hair growth reduction method. In addition to putting a stop to unwanted hair, bikini laser hair removal also has some other benefits:

  • Reduces the risk of ingrown hairs, which are common in this part of the body.
  • It's less painful than other hair removal methods
  • It leaves you with softer and less irritated skin in this sensitive area

This has made Bikini laser hair removal a very popular treatment among women of all demographics.

Frequently Asked Questions

How Does Bikini Laser Hair Removal Work?

To permanently stop hair growth 'down there', the bulb of the hair follicle and the papilla, which contains blood vessels that nourish the hair root needs to be damaged. Stem cells that are responsible for hair regeneration too must be destroyed. Laser hair removal achieves this goal by using a concept known as selective photothermolysis. Simply put, it matches a specific light wavelength and pulse duration to target pigment on the hair without damaging surrounding skin tissue.

The light energy in the laser is absorbed by the pigment (melanin) in the hair and converted into heat energy. The heat then damages the hair follicles, papilla, and stem cells to prevent future hair regrowth.

What are the Different Options for Bikini Laser Hair Removal?

We offer different types of bikini laser hair removal. It depends on the size of the treatment area and how much hair the patient wants to remove.

  • Bikini front - remove pubic hair on the front triangle.
  • Bikini line - remove the hair that pops out of the bikini up to one inch outside the triangle, ensuring a flawless look in panties or a bikini.
  • Extended bikini line - cover the bikini line as well as up to four inches out of the triangle. It will also cover a bit of the top of the thighs.
  • Brazilian bikini - offers a more comprehensive hair removal option. Not only will it cover the front of the pubic region and bikini line, but it will also remove hair under the intimate areas, including the labia and the thong line (or inner buttocks).

How to Prepare for Bikini Laser Treatments?

It's important to do what your laser technician says in the days and weeks leading up to treatment. This will allow you to achieve the best results. The following are some general recommendations:

About six weeks before treatment, you'll need to stop plucking and waxing, as the hair follicle needs to be intact for the laser to work. We recommend that you avoid sun exposure to your bikini area for a minimum of two weeks before your laser hair removal appointment. Since this area is usually protected from the sun, you don't have much to worry about as long as you're not nude sunbathing.

In the days leading up to your treatment, you'll also need to avoid certain medications, such as blood thinners and pain relievers. Your technician may also ask you to shave the area the day before your first session. For more recommendations on how to prepare for bikini laser hair removal, click here.

Why Do I Need Multiple Sessions?

Don't expect to see immediate results after your first treatment. As a matter of fact, a standard bikini laser hair removal package includes at least six sessions spaced out every 6 weeks. Usually, this is the minimum people need to achieve satisfactory results.

Why?

The hair growth cycle involves three stages:

  • Anagen: the 'active growth' phase.
  • Catagen: the 'in-between' phase where the hair has stopped growing.
  • Telogen: the 'end' phase, where hair begins to fall out, allowing new hair to come through the hair follicle.

Laser is most effective when the hair is in the active growth stage since the hair is still attached to the papilla. The laser will target and damage the papilla, preventing any new hair growth. This "perfect stage" has a downside since only 20% of your hair is in this phase at any given time. This is why you need several sessions to target all your hair as it transitions in and out of this active growth stage. This is also why our technician will ask you to wait 4-8 weeks between each session.

Is Laser Hair Removal Safe for My Bikini Area?

While laser hair removal is generally safe, there are a few crucial factors you need to take into consideration. First, your treatment should be administered by a qualified laser technician. In addition, you need to check that you're a good candidate (ask for a consultation).

What about pain?

Most patients only feel minor discomfort. It is often compared to the feeling of a rubber band snapping against the skin. Studies show that less than 1 per cent of patients require a numbing cream.

As with any cosmetic or medical procedure, there are potential risks. Adverse or long term side effects are rare, but it is common for the skin to swell or redden in the first few hours after a session. Some patients may also experience minor itching in the hours after treatment. Aloe vera is usually all you need to soothe and calm the skin. We will also provide you with a simple post-treatment routine to minimizes your risk of complications and get your bikini area ready for your next appointment.

Bottom Line

We encourage our patients to do research and educate themselves before undergoing any cosmetic treatment. Scheduling a private consultation with our technician will help you understand the pros and cons of each bikini laser hair removal option.
