Laser hair removal is an excellent option for anyone who wants to permanently eliminate shaving, waxing, ingrown hairs and razor burn. The extended bikini laser treatment removes hair from the outer and inner thighs as well as the labia and perianal areas.

Laser Hair Removal

Unlike waxing, laser hair removal doesn’t hurt very much. After a few sessions, hair growth starts to reduce and issues like shaving rash and ingrown hairs fade away. Keep reading the article below to learn more.

The bikini area can be a tricky one for hair removal. The hair here tends to be thick, coarse, dark in colour and can grow back quickly when shaving or waxing. It can also be difficult to keep the skin in this area smooth and irritation free with both shaving and waxing.

This is where laser hair removal can really make a difference. Laser hair removal works by targeting each individual hair follicle and blocking its ability to grow new hair. A full course of laser hair removal on the bikini line typically requires up to six sessions.

There are different styles of laser hair removal for the bikini area including a regular bikini which removes hair along the standard cut line of a bikini bottom. The more extended ‘Hollywood’ or ‘Brazilian’ laser hair removal for the bikini area is also popular. This style of treatment is recommended for those who prefer not to be completely bare ‘down there’ and want a nice tidy line that can be easily groomed with a razor.

Unlike waxing, laser hair removal is a permanent solution to unwanted hair on the bikini area. This means that after a series of treatments, you’ll be able to say goodbye to shaving, and enjoy the benefits of having hair-free skin in this sensitive area. The best part is that laser hair removal for the bikini area tends to be much more tolerable than waxing too.

How many sessions of laser hair removal are needed for a full course on the bikini line?

Depending on the individual and how dense their hair growth is, 6-10+ laser hair removal treatments are needed to achieve a permanent reduction in your bikini line. This is a long process but is necessary to ensure that all hairs are targeted at the right time in their growth cycle (anagen) to be effectively damaged by the laser.

You will typically see hairs on the top, sides and bum area reduce first followed by the labia and peri-anal area. Once all areas have been treated 2-3 top ups a year are needed to maintain the results. This is especially important in hormonal areas such as the tummy and breasts as these can be more affected by hormone changes.

Women are often confused about whether a Brazilian or a Bikini is the best option for them. The main difference between the two is that a Brazilian will remove hair from much more of the pubic area, including the labia and peri-anal region. If you’re bothered by the hairs around your panty line but don’t want to go as far as a full Brazilian then a bikini laser treatment is for you.

Both types of laser hair removal are great options for women who are sick and tired of having to shave or wax their legs or bikini areas. Both will result in long-term hair reduction and will save you money in the long run as there is no ongoing costs after a course of treatments. It’s recommended that you book a consultation to discuss your specific requirements and get started with your course of treatment.

What areas of the bikini line are suitable for laser hair removal?

The area around the bikini line is ideal for laser hair removal treatment because it’s a hard-to-maintain region with thick, coarse and dark hair that can be very difficult to remove using shaving or waxing. Women often have to shave the area daily which can cause issues like ingrown hairs and shaving rash leaving skin feeling rough and uncomfortable.

Laser hair removal is a permanent solution to unwanted hair that works to target individual hair follicles as they are growing. The results of a full course are long-term and the process of maintaining these reduced levels with regular top up sessions is much easier than using other methods.

It’s possible to choose from a number of different bikini line styles with a laser hair removal course at sk:n, including the standard bikini line which is defined by the crease of your thighs to the hipline, a more revealing Hollywood-style or even a full Brazilian. The latter eliminates all hair in the pubic area from the front to the labia and the perianal area.

With any of the bikini line styles available, you can be confident that your skin will feel and look smoother and healthier once the treatment is complete. With this in mind, it’s important to get started on a consultation and patch test so we can help you understand what to expect throughout your course of treatments.

Do I need a consultation before I start a course of laser hair removal on the bikini line?

The first step is to book a free consultation. This will give you the opportunity to have all of your questions answered and to see if laser hair removal is right for you. It’s important to be honest with your practitioner about your medical history and any medications you are taking as they may affect the effectiveness of treatment. You should also let your practitioner know if you have any allergies or if you’ve ever had a bad reaction to a previous skin treatment, such as waxing.

The consultation will also include patch testing to check that your skin can tolerate laser treatment and to determine if you have any pre-treatment conditions, such as a rash, that may require special care before starting your course. It’s recommended to avoid any lotions, perfumes or powders on the area of your body that will be treated and to stop shaving or waxing for 24 hours before each session. This is to help prevent ingrown hairs and to reduce the risk of side effects, such as redness or swelling.

After just a few sessions you should begin to notice that your bikini line hair is reducing and that ingrown hairs are becoming less common. You should also find that you don’t have to shave the area as often, and some clients may even need to only shave 1-2 times over a 6 week period.

Which bikini line styles are suitable for laser hair removal?

There are many different bikini line styles to choose from when it comes to laser hair removal. The style you choose will ultimately come down to your personal preferences and what suits you best. Some of the most popular options include a basic bikini line, Brazilian, extended and French.

With a basic bikini line, all of the hair outside of the outline of your bikini bottoms will be removed. This will leave you with a small triangle or rectangle of hair (landing strip) in the front of your pubic area. The Brazilian hair removal treatment is a more comprehensive option that removes all of the hair from the top of your pubic area, including the labia and peri-anal region. The extended bikini line laser hair removal is similar to the Brazilian, but it removes more of the hair from the front of your pubic area.

Waxing is another common method of removing unwanted hair from the bikini area, but it can be very uncomfortable and time-consuming. Laser hair removal is a quick and convenient alternative that can provide permanent results after a few treatments.

Laser hair removal is a safe and effective way to reduce hair growth on the bikini area. After just a few sessions, issues like ingrown hairs and shaving rash will begin to disappear. In addition, the need for regular maintenance like shaves will also diminish.

What are the side effects of laser hair removal on the bikini line?

Unlike shaving or waxing, laser hair removal is a permanent solution to unwanted pubic hair. During treatment, the laser emits heat into the skin to destroy the hair follicles so that they cannot grow hair again. The sensation is similar to having a rubber band flicked against your skin.

The process of a full course is quick, straightforward and relatively painless. The technician will use a skin-safe pencil to divide the area into quadrants and will then treat each one methodically. During the treatment, you will feel a light sting as each pulse of heat targets the hair follicle and zaps it.

Results from laser hair removal are long-lasting, but you will need to come back for regular top up sessions to maintain your reduction. During your consultation, we will give you a timeline of how many treatments you can expect for your bikini line.

The best thing about this treatment is that it will prevent embarrassing stubble from forming in the area, saving you from having to spend time shaving or using waxing kits. It will also eliminate the risk of ingrown hairs, which can be very painful. If you want to be completely hair-free, you can opt for our Brazilian laser hair removal option, which removes all of your pubic hair and extends the treatment to the labia and bum areas. This is recommended for women who are not comfortable with being bare down there and prefer to cover their modesty with a thong or a bikini.
