Removing unwanted body hair in the pubic region is a sensitive topic about a sensitive area. Waxing, depilatory creams, and shaving are effective but temporary. Plus, waxing can be very painful, and shaving can lead to ingrown hairs and itching as hair grows back. Repeating those processes and experiencing that discomfort can be a real hassle.
Brazilian or bikini laser hair removal is a safe, effective alternative for removing pubic hair. It’s less painful than waxing and can last several years. Laser by Monica is your destination for the top bikini and Brazilian laser hair removal New York can deliver. Our experienced professionals make Brazilian and bikini laser hair removal a breeze, working closely with you to ensure the process is as seamless and stress-free as possible.
What Is Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal is an FDA-approved cosmetic treatment that uses concentrated light (i.e., a laser beam) to remove unwanted hair. As the laser wand passes over the treatment area, it targets the melanin in the hair follicle, causing it to heat up and destroy the follicle itself. Hair growth is reduced or eliminated after the follicle is treated.
People with all skin tones and hair colors can have laser hair removal. At Laser by Monica, we offer two laser options: the 755 Alexandrite works best for lighter to medium skin, while the a1064 Yag is better for medium to darker skin. Both are safe and effective for removing hair in the bikini line area.
The length of each appointment varies based on the size of the area being treated. Most people need six to eight treatments, four to six weeks apart, to get their desired results. Laser hair removal is not permanent, but it usually lasts two to six years before hair starts growing back. You can get touch-up treatments to remove hair after the initial series of appointments.
Bikini Laser Hair Removal Procedure
Bikini laser hair removal is a procedure to remove excess body hair around the pubic area. Most people who choose bikini laser hair removal want to remove any hair that would be visible while wearing a swimsuit.
This procedure does not remove hair from the labia or perineal area and leaves hair over the pubic bone. Your esthetician will discuss which areas you want to treat before beginning your session.
Brazilian Laser Hair Removal Procedure
Brazilian laser hair removal is a more extensive hair removal procedure. Full Brazilian hair removal targets body hair above the pubic bone, on the labia, and on the perineal area.
Some people want to leave a small amount of hair above the public bone, while others want to remove all signs of body hair. You can tell your technician if you wish to leave any hair in place.
Getting Ready for Bikini or Brazilian Laser Hair Removal
Avoid tanning (including sun exposure, tanning beds, and spray tanning) or antibiotics for two weeks before your scheduled hair removal treatment. Do not wax or pluck the hair because treatment is most effective when hair is present in the follicle. You may shave the area before treatment; shorter hair allows the laser to penetrate the follicle more easily.
If you use a numbing cream, ask your technician how long before your appointment you should apply it.
Your esthetician will clean the area before beginning treatment. For a bikini treatment, you can wear underwear or a swimsuit. You’ll remove all clothing from the waist down for a full Brazilian treatment. You will wear special goggles or sunglasses to protect your eyes from the laser during treatment.
Post-Treatment Care for Brazilian or Bikini Laser Hair Removal
After treatment, your skin may be slightly red and sore. It should start to feel better within a few hours. You can apply a cool washcloth to alleviate any discomfort. Taking over-the-counter pain relievers like ibuprofen or acetaminophen may help as well.
The laser treatment may cause some discomfort. Most clients describe the sensation as a mild stinging or pinching. We can provide topical numbing cream to make the process more comfortable if you have sensitive skin.
