The 411 On Laser Removal Of Pubic Hair

The amount of pubic hair one person has depends on a few factors, including the color and thickness of hair in addition to personal preference. Many people choose to leave all of their pubic hair, while others want to remove some of the hair. Of course, there are many women who choose to go bare, removing all of the hair in their pubic regions.

Shaving may be the most common method of removing pubic hair, but it can be irritating to the skin, causing razor burns, rashes, and bumps. Thankfully, laser removal is becoming a popular option for removing unwanted hair in the bikini area. With this guide, you will understand the laser hair removal process to help you determine if it is the right option for you.

The Process

If you are considering laser removal of your pubic hair, schedule a consultation with a licensed professional. During this consultation, technicians will discuss how to prepare for your treatment.

You should avoid waxing the area before the treatment. However, technicians will tell you to shave the pubic region before your treatment. Make sure to use shaving cream and a new razor to shave, since this will ensure the skin is smooth and free of hair before the laser treatment begins.

Before your treatment, you should also wash the area to reduce any dirt or sweat that may be lingering on the skin.

Once you arrive at the facility, you will need to undress and lay comfortably on a table. A sheet will be used to cover the pubic area. You may also be given goggles, which are worn to protect your eyes from the laser light during the treatment.

A topical anesthetic will then be applied to the area. This will numb the skin's surface, reducing any discomfort while the laser light pulses the skin. Remain calm, since you should not experience any pain. Many people compare the sensation to a rubber band slightly tapping the skin.

Types of Pubic Hair Removal

You may be surprised to learn there are a few types of pubic hair removal.

Most people will undergo a bikini hair removal. This treatment targets the hair located in the bikini area or the area above the actual bikini line. This removes any hair that is visible while wearing a bikini bottom or panty. In some instances, bikini hair removal may also include hair in the upper portion of the pubic area and sides of the labia.

If you want more hair removed during a bikini laser treatment, make sure to ask your technician about a Brazilian hair removal.

A Brazilian laser treatment removes hair on the bikini line and hair under the bikini area. This is ideal for women who want to be mostly bare since it removes hair on the panty line, pubic area, labia, and even perianal areas.

For appearances, you can choose to leave a small area of hair on the pubic region, such as a landing strip or other design. Again, the amount of hair or type of pubic hair removal will depend on your specific wants and needs.

After the Pubic Hair Removal Treatment

After the treatment, you will have some redness and swelling of the skin your pubic area. If you had a Brazilian removal treatment, the redness and swelling may cause some discomfort in the labia area especially when urinating, cleansing the area, or during sexual relations/intercourse.

Avoid waxing after the treatment, but shaving is recommended between appointments. For the most effective hair removal with lasers, additional treatments will be necessary.

Laser removal of pubic hair offers many benefits. With proper understanding, you will be able to determine if it is the right solution for your unwanted pubic hair.
