The Process of Laser Hair Removal on the Bikini Area

The mechanism used to get rid of ingrown and excess hair in the pubic area is just the same as that used on other parts of the body. However, the only difference is that the privates are more sensitive to pain. Most people who use the Bareskin Device have noted that they don't feel any pain when using the machine. But suppose you do experience pain or discomfort that comes with the treatment. Therefore, it is advisable to take mild painkillers before your session to help alleviate the pain that may accompany the procedure.

Laser hair removal on the bikini area involves the emission of a high-intensity beam of light that targets the melanin in the hair. After the pigmentation cells are detected, the light energy heats the hair follicle, destroying it and slowing its hair growth abilities. The procedure takes 15-20 minutes to achieve results. However, it is essential to point out that for one to get rid of hair on the pubic area permanently, six to eight treatments are a must.

To have a stress-free free Brazilian hair removal treatment, one should consider a few things before the procedure.

What do you need to consider before getting Brazilian hair removal treatment?

Let the hair grow

It may sound counterintuitive, especially if the only thing on your mind is how to get rid of that bush. Keep calm. Let your hair grow down there to get the best out of your laser hair removal treatment. Ensure you have four to six weeks of hair growth before your session. It gives enough time for the hair follicles to produce hair growth and hence become visible. The more visible the hair follicles are, the more precise the target gets for the laser to do total annihilation.

Shave the bikini area a day before the session

Shaving the pubic area in advance allows the skin to heal should a cut occur while shaving. Another reason for shaving before the treatment day is to enable the laser to reach the hair follicle directly and damage it in the short duration possible. Also, do not opt for shaving alternatives such as threading, waxing, or plucking. Only shaving guarantees safe laser hair removal treatment.

The Dos

Consider Your Skin Tone

It is fair to say that fair-skinned guys (No pun intended) are likely to get better results than their counterparts with a dark complexion. This is because IPL laser hair removal gadgets use a mechanism that targets the dark pigment of the hair.

It is more straightforward to detect melanin in people with light and dark hair than those with dark skin and black hair. With modern advancements, all skin tones are achieving the same results, but one has to go for high-end gadgets to get the best results on any hair and skin type.

Decide on The Most Comfortable Place to Have Your Treatment

Some people prefer doing the treatment in the comfort of their homes for enhanced privacy. The choice depends on one's personal preference. Any option is okay as long you feel comfortable.

Avoid The Sun At All Costs

To be safe, minimize your skin's contact with the sun as much as you can days before your Brazilian laser hair removal session. Too much sun makes your skin raw and very sensitive to pain. Extra pain is the last thing you want in addition to the discomfort you will experience during your laser treatment.

Rest Time

Ensure you get enough rest and sleep before the treatment to make the procedure comfortable and less painful for you. Restlessness causes irritability which in turn frustrates your entire session.

Shaving your bikini line before treatment

You are using a white eye pencil to outline the shape of the hair that you will keep. Take time to ensure you get the desired shape. Once you have perfected the design, go over the lines a few times with the pencil to ensure the markings are visible.

Preparing the area
Moisten your bikini area with lukewarm water and apply a small amount of shaving oil or cream to the skin avoiding the white pencil marks. It's best to use a clear, unscented shaving oil or gel to see the white lines.

Shaving the treatment area
To achieve a defined line after your laser treatment, take great care during this process.

Shave lightly from the outside, careful not to shave the same area more than once. When satisfied with the design, remove the shaving oil and white pencil lines using a clean lukewarm cloth.

Repeat the process on the inner thighs and the labia area, working from the outer sections inwards, stretching the skin to remove as much hair as possible in a single pass.
