The Low Down on Bikini Laser Hair Removal

Updated on January 9, 2015

Why Remove Bikini Line Hair?

Unwanted hair can be a source of embarrassment for many people, especially for women in the summer time when they are scantily clad.  It may even be a situation where a woman wants to look good naked for her significant other, but cannot gain control of her bikini hairline, and needs to shape, trim or remove that unwanted hair.  In the western world, we have many hang ups on hairiness, whereas in European countries, most people do not even shave.  It has become common practice for people to use various methods to remove unwanted hair; however, many of these methods are neither permanent nor very effective.

Is Laser Hair Removal the Best Option?

Shaving and waxing your bikini line can not only be painful, it can also be tedious and time consuming.  Some of the challenges include not being able to fully see exactly what and where you are shaving or waxing, that is if you are attempting to do the task yourself.  Some people opt to go to a salon for waxing, while others do the shaving themselves.  If you are going to shave your bikini line, you need a very good shaving cream and a super sharp (new) razor.

Bikini laser hair removal is a pretty new option, although it has been around for over 10 years now.  Laser clinics are springing up all over the country and this is good and bad.  The good part is that with many clinics opening up in very close proximity to one another, you may find that pricing is competitive, and you may find it is quite affordable to undergo bikini laser hair removal.  The bad part is that if a clinic is fairly new, the technicians may not be overly experienced, and the last thing that you want is someone inexperienced using a laser around your sensitive areas.

How Laser Hair Removal Works.

Lasers are safe, overall, but if the clinician is not very experienced, they may not know exactly what strength that they need to use for your particular hair removal situation.  The stronger the laser, the deeper the penetration into your skin.  Skin is sensitive and bikini laser hair removal is a good option for your sensitive skin.  You will know after the first session if this is a good hair removal method for you in particular.  After a short time, you may have some swelling, redness or itchiness.  This is very normal, and should dissipate within 2 or 3 days.  If; however, you experience much more pain, ingrown hairs and issues, you may not wish to continue with this kind of treatment.

One of the main issues surrounding bikini laser hair removal is the number of required treatments – anywhere from 4 – 12; however, undergoing these sessions can ensure permanent or near permanent hair removal for many years.  The treatment sessions are usually dispensed in 14 week intervals, or whenever the client feels the need to return for more work, generally not sooner than 7 weeks since the last treatment.  Sometimes, the hair follicles regenerate and the hair regrows, and this is the main reason why many laser clinics cannot claim that the removal is permanent in any way.

      Interesting. The process reduces skin sensitivity. Just FYI.
