Trimming Lady Parts — Pain Free to Forever Bare with Laser Hair Removal
Listen, ladies… when it comes to removing hair “down there,” you may have heard a lot of things. But regardless of what your friends or favorite magazines say, these tips can be life-changing in the best way. No more nicks or razor bumps, just a bare and beautiful canvas courtesy of laser hair removal. Don’t get us wrong, we enjoy shaving, waxing, and sugaring at the spa as much as you do. However, the process of laser hair removal for your lady parts is one that needs to be discussed more often. It’s quick, easy, efficient, and helps you look and feel beautiful!
Here are a few things that you should know before you go in for treatments:
It’s Advanced, yet Easy
How exactly does it work? A concentrated beam of light is directed towards your skin, using heat to break up the hair follicle and prevent future growth. This process is virtually painless, ideal for the sensitive pubic area, and typically only lasts a few minutes. While we’re talking about your “down there” area today, you can also receive the treatment on your arms, legs, upper lip, or anywhere else on the body.
Laser Hair Removal is Kinder to your Skin
The lack of pain makes laser hair removal ideal for those with sensitive skin, but it also protects the canvas and keeps the skin feeling smooth and healthy. While the process of waxing can rip away healthy skin cells, and shaving leads to nicks and burns, the laser removal technique won’t harm your skin, The worst you’ll feel is a bit of redness and/or irritation momentarily after your procedure, which is easily soothed by aloe vera soothing gel from your technician.
It Lasts a Very Long Time
While shaving lasts days and waxing typically weeks, the process of laser hair removal on your pubic area can last for months or even years. It varies by person, but most can expect to be smooth and beautifully bare down there for between one to two years. We’d recommend speaking with your technician about how to get the best and longest-lasting results.
You’ll Need to Prepare
Laser hair removal works by destroying the hair follicle, and it will need to be completely intact before your procedure. This means no plucking or waxing for at least six weeks before your treatment. Shaving is allowed, but not recommended. You’ll get used to letting the hair grow out, and will receive the best results from your Brazilian laser hair removal when the follicle is strong and intact.
Avoid the Sun
It can be tempting to head to the beach in a skimpy swimsuit, as you want to show off the incredible results of your Brazilian laser hair removal. However, you need to stay away from UV rays for at least a couple of weeks after each session. Your skin needs time to heal from the heat of the laser, and sun exposure can cause issues like hyperpigmentation, burns, or scarring. Ouch. Stay safe and stay inside for a while!
Laser Hair Removal Can be Costly
Even with all the benefits, it can be pricey. Cost varies by the size of the area and other factors, but you can typically expect to pay between $200-500 per session. With around four to six sessions needed for a Brazilian laser hair removal, this can become a bit costly down the line — but it’s an investment you only need to make every few years.
