For many women who like to spend time at the beach and the pool, a clean bikini line is very important. But what’s the best option for removing the hair that grows along this line?
Shaving, waxing, and laser hair removal are all legitimate options, but at Laser Bar and Spa, our Cynosure® Elite+™ system makes laser removal a breeze. Here’s why we think it’s the best option for removing bikini line hair.
If you’ve ever shaved along your bikini line, you know that it’s not the easiest process in the world. The angles are awkward, and if you don’t have a fresh razor, you’re guaranteed to get razor burn, not to mention the unsightly bumps and irritating ingrown hairs that can form.
You also have to make sure to apply lotion after you shave so your skin won’t become dry, red, and irritated.
Waxing is another option if you want to remove the hair in your bikini area. If you go this route, though, you have to be prepared to wax every month, and the cost of those treatments can add up over time.
Waxing is also painful, especially in the sensitive bikini area, and it can also cause ingrown hairs.
That leaves laser hair removal as the final option. While it may cost a little more initially, the benefits far outweigh the downsides. When you remove all the hair permanently with a laser, you’re eliminating forever the monthly hassle of shaving or waxing.
Your hair stubble won’t grow back, causing ingrown hairs — in fact, you’ll never have to worry about ingrown hairs again. You’ll also be permanently groomed, ready at any time for the beach or the pool.
The laser hair removal process
The process is simple and painless. The Cynosure® Elite+™ laser heats up the hair follicles in the targeted bikini area by sending light pulses into the root of the follicle. This destroys the follicle so it can no longer grow.
Because your hair follicles are all in different stages of growth, multiple treatment sessions are necessary to make sure all the hair is eliminated. Every case is unique, but each session will last about 15 minutes, and you’ll probably need eight to ten total sessions to complete the treatment.
A few weeks before you begin treatment, you’ll need to stop plucking, waxing, and tanning. After each treatment, you may need some aloe vera to calm itching. The important thing is to avoid sun exposure to the area that was treated. It may be to your advantage to have the treatment done in the fall or winter so you’re ready for the sunny season when spring and summer roll around.
