Bikini laser hair removal or a Brazilian?

By Raj Phull 19th November 2013 Category: Advice

One of the commonly asked questions asked by women, in regards to hair removal is whether they should go for bikini laser hair removal or a Brazilian. Since everyone has varying pain tolerances this can be a tricky question to answer. However a large number of people have said that laser hair removal is a lot less painful than waxing or other hair removal methods. Bikini laser hair removal refers to the hair that can be seen whilst you are wearing your bikini, hence the name. This means that hair outside the underwear and the top of the thighs is removed.

A Brazilian removes all the hair, which sk:n clinics also carry out. Find out more about sk:n by visiting a sk:n clinic near you, and you’ll bound to be impressed by the effectiveness of their laser hair removal treatments.

Some tips to follow when preparing for bikini laser hair removal or a Brazilian:

Tip 1: Ensure you shave the target area before your treatment session

It’s advisable before getting laser treatment for hair removal for your bikini line or Brazilian that you shave the hair in that area. This is because laser is most effective if the hair is in the active growth phase as oppose to dormant or transitional phases.

Tip 2: Educate yourself and familiarise yourself with this type of treatment as much as possible

It would also be recommended, that you find out all that you need to know about these treatments so you are fully prepared and confident to go ahead with treatment.

Tip 3: Ensure you’re consistent with your treatment sessions to get maximum benefit

It is important you attend all your treatment sessions set by your dermatologist and complete your laser hair removal course, so you achieve the best results. Body hair is usually treated every six weeks, and a minimum of six treatments is normally recommended.
