Chances are, you devote a decent amount of time to personal grooming each month. After all, you take pride in your appearance and a little cosmetic upkeep can go a long way in helping you to feel good in your own skin. But if it seems like your attempts to keep your intimate areas well-groomed are a never-ending battle, you may be onto something.

Some people shave the hair down there and, as payback, are rewarded with razor burn or irritated skin. Others opt for wax treatments, which can be as painful in person as they are on the wallet. Still others apply stinky depilatory creams—a messy undertaking to say the least. But have you considered that laser hair removal could take care of your bikini area situation once and for all?

Yes, It’s Safe to Use Laser Hair Removal Down There

For starters, let’s take a look at how laser hair removal(LHR) works. A low-energy laser beam harmlessly passes through the skin’s layers to target the hair that grows below. The laser energy zaps hair follicles during their growth stage, which prevents hair from growing. Because hair grows in stages rather than all at once, repeat laser hair removal sessions are necessary in order to fully treat the bikini area. The laser can be adjusted to meet the needs of your skin tone and location on the body, making it a safe, effective treatmentanywhere on the body where there’s unwanted hair.

Laser hair removal can help you achieve lasting reduction in unwanted hair.

A Little Bit of Bikini Area Laser Magic

Part of what’s made laser hair removal such a popular cosmetic option is that it offers a long-term solution to unwanted hair. The number of treatments you’ll need to satisfy your cosmetic concerns will depend on the thickness and color of your hair. Anywhere from 4 to 10 treatments every 4 to 6 weeks should help to eliminate the hair around your bikini area, leaving your skin smooth to the touch. And the best news of all is that when you’ve concluded all of your laser hair removal treatments, you’ll only need an annual maintenance treatment to preserve your results.

Can You Really Use LHR in Your Bikini Area?

In a word, yes. Laser hair removal is not limited to women, either. Growing numbers of men are using lhr to help rid them of unwanted hair here, there and everywhere. So if you decide you want to tackle the hair in your more private areas, you certainly won’t be the first or the last person to do that. Your biggest priority when pursuing laser hair removal should be to work with a certified laser technician who has experience treating intimate areas.

You should go to your first treatment unshaven to better let your laser technician properly evaluate your treatment needs. Before following sessions,it’s best to shave your bikini area 24 hours prior to your laser hair removal session. This helps the laser to more effectively reach the follicles below the skin’s surface. Always use a clean new razor and use a moisturizing shaving gel to treat your skin right.

Bikini Area Laser Hair Removal Aftercare

It’s crucial to protect skin after laser hair removal from sun exposure or tanning, and although we’re talking specifically about your bikini areas, sun protection is still an important precaution to take. You’ll also want to avoid extremely hot baths and showers for the first 48 hours after bikini area laser hair removal, as well as take a 48-hour break from any intensive exercise that would cause you to sweat.
