Can Laser hair removal be used for bikini line?

16th February 2012  : 

Before going on holiday many women choose to have unsightly hair removed from their bikini line. There are many types of bikini line hair removal available which vary in cost, method and effectiveness.

While simply shaving the bikini line can be done at home, it can lead to a reddening of the area almost as unsightly as excess hair. Shaving is also a fairly short lived solution, meaning further shaving can be necessary during your holiday.

Waxing is an effective method which can last for the whole duration of your holiday. However, it can be very painful, requiring quite high tolerance levels for pain. The pain alone is often enough to dissuade women from undergoing the procedure.

Hair removal creams are an inexpensive option. However, the strong chemicals they contain can cause skin irritation so perform a patch test before pressing ahead with a full application. Hair removal creams are a short lived solution, but will usually last for the duration of your holiday.

A more permanent solution is electrolysis, which uses electric currents to kill the follicles of excess pubic hair. It is rather time consuming and expensive, but the results are very long lived, so undergoing the treatment over several months prior to your holiday can be an effective way to manage your bikini line.

Finally, there is laser hair removal. Laser treatments work very well on small areas and bikini line laser hair removal can usually be completed in around four sessions. The procedure is quite costly but the results can last for a very long period of time. While some mild redness or swelling can occur after the procedure it usually clears quickly and the treatment is relatively painless.

Before choosing how to remove excess hair from your bikini line always conduct some research, review from people who had bikini line hair removal treatments and seek professional advice.
