Anyone that has ever tried a Brazilian wax likely can attest that it is well worth the hype, but what about Brazilian laser hair removal? Much like a traditional Brazilian, laser hair removal eases the pesky and constant frustration of razor bumps and the need to shave regularly in order to achieve a smooth nether-region. 

The “bikini line” is used to describe the area of skin and pubic hair that is visible when wearing a moderate bikini or underwear. Brazilian laser hair removal reduces all visible pubic hair in that area front to back, leaving you completely smooth, silky, and ready to rock your tiniest bikini. 

Essentially, Brazilian laser hair removal includes treatment of the entire pubic region that so many of us struggle to perfect with shaving or other techniques. 

Brazilian laser removal, however, is customizable. Not interested in being completely hairless? No problem! Your specialist can work with you to determine the look that will make you feel most comfortable. 

What is Brazilian Laser Hair Removal? 

Brazilian laser hair removal is a method of hair removal that uses laser technology to permanently reduce or remove hair from the pubic area. 

During a Brazilian laser hair removal session, a trained technician or a dermatologist uses a laser device that emits concentrated light beams. The pigment in the hair follicles absorbs the light, which then destroys the hair follicle, inhibiting or delaying future hair growth. 

The procedure is performed in sessions spaced several weeks apart to target hair follicles in their various growth cycles. It's important to note that while laser hair removal can significantly reduce hair growth, it often requires multiple sessions to achieve long-lasting results. Additionally, results may vary depending on individual factors such as skin type, hair color, and the type of laser used. 

Brazilian laser hair removal offers longer-term results compared to temporary hair removal methods like waxing or shaving. It's important to consult with a licensed professional before undergoing laser hair removal to understand the procedure's suitability for your skin and hair type, as well as any potential risks or side effects. 

How Does Brazilian Laser Hair Removal Work? 

Brazilian laser hair removal works by using concentrated beams of light energy to target the pigment (melanin) in the hair follicles. The process involves several key steps: 

  • Preparation: Before the procedure, the area to be treated is cleaned, and sometimes a cooling gel, cryogen or numbing cream is applied to minimize discomfort. 
  • Laser Application: During the treatment, a handheld device emitting laser energy is passed over the targeted areas. The laser emits a specific wavelength of light that is absorbed by the pigment in the hair follicles. 
  • Hair Follicle Damage: The absorbed light energy heats up the hair follicles, damaging or destroying them. This process inhibits their ability to produce new hair or significantly slows down hair regrowth. 
  • Multiple Sessions: Hair grows in cycles, and not all hair follicles are actively producing hair at the same time. Therefore, multiple sessions are required to target hair in different growth stages for optimal results. We recommend a minimum of six sessions, targeting each hair growth cycle twice.  
  • Post-Treatment Care: After each session, the treated area may appear red or slightly swollen, but these effects usually subside within a few hours to a day. It's essential to follow post-treatment care instructions provided by the practitioner, which may include avoiding sun exposure and using moisturizers or soothing creams. 

The goal of Brazilian laser hair removal is to reduce hair growth significantly or achieve permanent hair reduction in the treated areas. However, complete removal may not always be possible, and maintenance sessions might be necessary to manage any regrowth. 

What to Expect and How to Prepare for Your Brazilian Laser Hair Removal 

Although the results and goal of Brazilian laser hair removal are similar to that of a wax, the prep and expectations differ. While Brazilian waxes are known to thin your hair, it isn't permanent hair removal. 

Our Brazilian Bikini laser hair removal, on the other hand, provides a permanent reduction of about 70% to 90% of unwanted hair in just six treatments spanned over four to six weeks between each session. 

Also differing from a Brazilian wax, laser hair removal requires the client to attend their appointment with a clean shave. This may seem strange at first, as with wax treatments, we are instructed to allow our hair to grow to specific lengths, however, the intention of the laser is to target the root of the follicle, not the visible hair shaft, therefore no regrowth is needed. 

And while Brazilian Laser Hair Removal may not remove 100% of the hair and requires a package of treatments, you avoid the cycle of shaving, waxing, or other pricey yet temporary solutions. It will ultimately save money since you’re opting for a treatment that tackles your unwanted hair in the long term 

Is it Safe for Everyone? 

We utilize Alexandrite, Diode and NdYag laser technology for our Brazilian laser hair removal packages to safely, effectively, and satisfactorily treat all skin and hair types interested in trying it. 

In addition to the ability to treat diverse skin and hair types safely, we also see demand for laser hair removal from all genders, ethnicities, lifestyles, and ages, making it the perfect treatment for just about anyone interested. 

When you partner this treatment’s general safety levels with its convenience, long-term cost-effectiveness, and expansive inclusion, it makes perfect sense that Brazilian laser hair removal is one of our most requested treatments.
