Bikini Laser Hair Removal – What to Expect

If you have ever considered Brazilian laser hair removal, then you have most likely wondered about the available options and technology. Hair removal by laser can help remove pubic hair safely, quickly, and effectively.

What to Expect from the Brazilian Laser Hair Removal Experience

Here are five things to expect from your laser hair removal experience:

1. Options for Hair Removal by Laser

At Delete Tattoo Removal & Laser Salon, our qualified medical laser technicians make the process as simple and comfortable as possible. You choose how much pubic hair you would like to remove in this process. A full Brazilian laser hair removal treatment plan leaves no hair on the skin, whereas a partial Brazilian laser hair removal session removes most of the follicles, leaving behind what is typically called a “landing strip.”

A Bikini laser hair removal treatment plan removes ½ inch to 2 inches of hair on each side of the pubic area. You can choose the amount of hair left in an area. The number of appointments needed will vary based on factors such as hair color, coarseness, and skin type, while the length of each appointment is based on the size of the treated area.

Laser hair removal works by targeting and destroying the hair follicle. The stage of growth your hair follicle is in determines the effectiveness of a laser hair removal treatment, which is why a series of treatments are needed. Hormones may also generate new hair follicles and drive the need for ‘touch ups” after your series has completed.

2. Safety of Hair Removal Laser Technology

We use the technologically advanced GentleMAX Pro Laser System by Candela to treat pubic hair safely and comfortably. Laser hair reduction and removal are known for safely removing hair faster and more effectively than razors and waxing. The most important factor in laser hair removal is the laser technology used to treat your unwanted hair.

The GentleMAX Pro system works safely on all skin types to target hair at the root with its 755nm Alexandrite laser combined with an equally powerful 1064nm Nd:YAG laser. The laser’s large spot size makes it the fastest dual-wavelength hair removal laser available, and when combined with GentleMAX Pro Dynamic Cooling Device™, it becomes the most comfortable laser hair removal treatment available.

3. Discomfort After Laser Treatments

The GentleMAXPro is designed with a cooling system to ensure a more comfortable treatment than that of traditional laser removal. Some patients feel a snap with each pulse of the laser; however, it should not last long. If needed, topical anesthesia is available, and any redness or irritation experienced directly after laser hair removal can be eased with a cold compress or aloe gel.

4. Multiple Laser Treatments

It takes multiple laser treatments to remove unwanted hair. With two separate laser wavelengths and multiple spot sizes, the GentleMAX Pro technology aggressively treats all skin types and most hair follicles. However, there are a few things you should be aware of regarding laser hair removal effectiveness and limitations:

• Your hair follicles may shed for a few weeks after treatment.
• You will experience some hair regrowth after each appointment because of the different growth stages of hair follicles. During the anagen phase, which lasts 2-6 years or longer, the hair grows. During the telogen phase, which lasts about three months, the hair rests. At the end of the telogen phase, the hair falls out and is replaced by new hair.
• Hormones can generate new hair follicle growth.
• Your laser technician will advise you to wait anywhere from four to eights weeks between appointments.

5. Laser Procedure Aftercare

After treatment, do not use abrasive skin cleansers or scrub the treated area for a few days. Avoid sun exposure and tanning booth’s light. If you need to be in the sun, use an SPF of 30 or higher sunscreen on the area.
