Laser hair removal is the best new way to handle all of your bikini-area hair-removal needs. The bikini line is one of the sexiest parts of the body, but many women struggle to keep it hair-free throughout the year. The bikini area is very sensitive, and women often complain about razor burn and the discomfort of waxing in this region. Laser hair removal solves both of those issues!
What is Brazilian Laser Hair Removal?
The Brazilian Laser Hair Removal system uses a laser to target hair follicles beneath the surface of your skin to stop them from producing hairs. This laser system can be used on anyone whose natural hair color is darker than their skin tone.
You may not realize your hair grows in cycles, so some hair follicles are at rest while the others are actively growing hairs. Because of this, you will come in for laser hair-removal treatments five to eight times, thus ensuring that all follicles are stopped during an active growth phase.
With each subsequent treatment, there will be less visible hair and the hair that remains between visits will begin to soften.
What is the Difference Between Bikini and Brazilian Laser Hair Removal?
The main difference between bikini and brazilian laser hair removal is the area the laser hair removal treatment covers, as the treatment and method of hair removal is identical. A bikini laser hair removal is for someone who wants to look flawless in a bikini or panties, as the treatment covers up to three inches beyond the bikini line. This makes it a perfect option for frequent San Diego beachgoers who are tired of shaving! A Brazilian laser hair removal treatment is for women who want to go completely bare, removing all of the hair from the pubic region, or, if they desire, leaving a small patch of hair.
What Is the Bikini Area? Where Is the Bikini Line?
The bikini line is the area slightly above the panty line, as it is the part of the body that a typical bikini would sit on the average women. The bikini line is used in laser hair removal as a target area, with the goal of a bikini area laser hair removal treatment is that no hair will show when you are in a swimsuit at the beach. To make sure of this, the team at San Diego Cosmetic Laser goes a few inches beyond the bikini line to cover even the most teenie bikini. In some cases, the bikini area can also refer to the area that panties cover, including the top of the pubic region and sides of the labia, but this is up to the discretion of the client.
How Long Does It Last?
The ultimate goal of laser bikini treatments is to permanently reduce the appearance of hair. Most women report an improvement of 50 percent to 90 percent by the end of their treatment course.
After your first treatment course, you can usually maintain those results by having one or two treatments per year. This will greatly slow down any new growth.
What is the Recovery Period Like?
This gentle laser treatment does not require any significant recovery time. Most patients can return to normal activity the same day. After the procedure is complete, you may feel a warm sensation in the treated area, similar to a mild sunburn.
In extremely sensitive areas like the bikini region, it is possible to use a topical anesthetic to reduce discomfort immediately after treatment.
The most important thing to remember is not to expose the treated area to heat and direct sunlight while it heals. You should always apply sunscreen when outdoors, and do not use tanning beds.
How Much Does Brazilian Laser Hair Removal Cost?
Laser hair-removal services can vary greatly in price from one clinic to the next. You should plan on having five to eight sessions done, usually performed six to eight weeks apart. At San Diego Cosmetic Laser Clinic, Dr. Parvin Mani will consult with you on laser hair removal and how many sessions she believes you’ll need to give you an accurate and fair price for your treatments.
