What is bikini line laser hair removal?
Many women wish to remove unwanted hair around their bikini area. Quite a popular treatment. But what hair removal method is the best?
Whether you use shaving cream or shaving gel, razors will always irritate the skin. Plus, the hair grows back immediately. Waxing hurts. Chemical creams are too harmful to even be used there.
A bikini line laser hair removal treatment permanently removes unwanted hair. It covers the area on the thigh where most undergarments hit. It’s two fingers wide running along the V line.
Will it hurt? Is it safe?
Waxing hurts. A lot. Especially around the intimate area. We’ve all been through this. Bikini line laser hair removal on the other hand does not.
No, let us rephrase. Pain is not the right term. A bikini line laser treatment feels like pinching. Or it can also be compared to the feel of rubber band snapping at the skin. You may feel some heat too.
Laser hair removal does not hurt. It may feel unpleasant. Yet, it is mostly comfortable. The bikini has very sensitive skin. Thus, the treatment may be more unpleasant. Some aloe vera gel will help sooth your skin.
Laser treatments are also very safe. Like any other cosmetic procedures, it has risks. However, those are very rare. You can also easily avoid them. You just need to follow your technician’s instructions.
How does laser hair removal work?
Laser hair removal is a FDA approved hair removal technique. The laser produces a beam of light energy that targets hair pigments. The melanin in the hair absorbs the energy. Then, the energy is sent to the hair follicle.
Our spa uses machines that are suitable for all skin tones and hair colors. The 755nm wavelength targets fair hair on light skin. The 810nm wavelength treats dark hair on light skin. Finally, the 1064nm wavelength is suitable for dark hair on dark skin.
How many sessions will I need?
The growth phase of the hair cycle is called anagen. It is the only time the hair and follicle connect. This allows the energy to pass from the former to the latter.
Since 20% of your hair is in the anagen phase, one session can target 20% of hair. Each successive session will treat an additional 20%.
The bikini line is a very hormonal area. The hair is darker, thicker and coarser. It is harder to remove. Thus, patients are likely to need additional sessions.
When can I expect results?
Laser hair removal is a long-term hair growth reduction method. Yet, that does not mean you will not see results early on. Indeed, each session treats 20% of hair. That is why you can expect a 20% hair growth reduction after each session.
You will start to see your hair shed a week after your session. By the third session, at least 50% of body hair will be gone. The success of your bikini line laser hair removal treatment depends on consistency.
This means you must book each session six weeks apart. If you do not follow a strict schedule, you will interfere with the efficacy of the treatment. Therefore results may be delayed.
How do I prepare for a bikini line laser session?
Laser hair removal is the fastest and convenient way to remove unwanted hair. You can check out our tips to prepare for your session.
Avoid exposure to direct sun light. Do not use tanning beds and intense UV ray treatments. Indeed, artificial tanning puts the skin into an excited state that can interfere with your treatment.
Some medications can increase sensitivity to the light. This will make the bikini line laser treatment more painful. That is why you need tell your certified laser technician of your medical history before your session.
Clean your skin of lotions, creams, moisturizers, scented fragrances and makeup. Finally, you need to shave the night before or at lest three hours prior to your session.
