Bikini line laser hair removal
One of the most common questions I get is about bikini line laser hair removal in the bikini area.
Hair in that area tends to be curly, which can make hair harder to shave. Curly hairs are more likely to become ingrown than hairs that grow straight.
The area also tends to be more damp than exposed areas, which can add to ingrown hair problems. While some women find waxing is a good option, many want a permanent option. Laser hair removal can cause permanent hair reduction, but you need to follow a few simple steps to get the most from it.
Luckily, the hairs in that area tend to be relatively shallow, making them good candidates for laser hair removal.
If you have light skin and dark colored hair, you are an ideal candidate. Laser targets the pigment (color) in hair, and the darker the better. However, a laser can’t tell the difference between dark hair and dark skin, so it will also heat up dark skin. This can cause the skin color to change, and it can last for months.
If you are going to get laser hair removal in the bikini area, it’s important to find someone with a lot of experience.
You should also avoid sun in the area for a week or two before and after treatment. In some cases, getting sun on the area right after laser can change the skin color, often in a patchy pattern. Better to play it safe! That also means don’t do it right befor you go on vaction, or right after you have been tanning.
Most people who are treated properly will see at least one-third to two-thirds reduction in the amount of hair. in addition, any hair that comes back after a course of treatments will probably be thinner and lighter in color.
There’s also been a trend for some guys to reduce the hair in that area with laser, too.
Bottom line is that laser can be a good option under the right circumstances, so do you research and see if it’s right for you!
