Is Laser Hair Removal of the Bikini Area Safe?
Laser hair removal has been around for a while, since the 1960’s. And the different types of lasers for hair removal have changed, evolved, and improved. It is definitely safe for the bikini area. Laser hair removal is a pretty non-invasive procedure, no matter where you’re having it done.
Getting any kind of hair removal done in the bikini area is always something that clients think hard about because, well, it’s the bikini area. So, you’re going to have to be thoroughly undressed to have it, and other forms of hair removal like waxing are most painful in these sensitive areas.
But, is laser hair removal of the bikini area safe?
The short answer is, yes, it is.
While it may be very slightly more uncomfortable than laser hair removal on the lower leg, the laser we use, the Light Sheer Duet diode laser, is fast, effective, and well tolerated by clients—which is why we love it.
You need a minimum of six treatments about a month apart because individual hairs are in different phases of growth, and the laser only affects those in the active growth phase. Over time, other follicles move into that phase and are susceptible to the laser.
After treatment, you want to be gentle with any areas that have had laser treatment. That means no super-hot water in the shower, and don’t pick at any scabs or bumps if you have any.
Laser hair removal is permanent, and if you’re tired of the constant razor burn or agony from waxing—over and over—then laser hair removal will be a welcome relief.
The Light Sheer Duet diode laser is the state-of-the-art laser for hair removal. We’re very experienced with it, and we will be happy to tackle your bikini area or any other.
