Bikini laser hair removal

Say goodbye to waxing, the daily razor or the electric epilator: it’s possible! Laser bikini waxing is the reference treatment in aesthetic medicine for permanent hair removal. Its beam, attracted by melanin, transforms into heat and burns the hair root. The Epilium & Skin Center offers this fast, definitive solution.

Why get rid of bikini area hair for good?

Hair growth in certain areas, especially intimate ones, can be a source of aesthetic inconvenience or a sign of carelessness: ingrown hairs, hair sticking out of swimwear… Naturally, conventional hair removal methods can solve this problem in a short space of time. However, they also have their share of disadvantages: ingrown hairs, irritation

Laser hair removal in the bikini area can prevent all this. Laser hair removal is the most effective solution for a number of reasons:

  • aesthetics,
  • hygienic (retention of perspiration and odors),
  • practical (time-saving),
  • economic
  • or even sporting considerations.

Obviously, different hair removal styles can be chosen for this area. Pubic hair removal is always performed with respect for the patient’s privacy.

What are the particularities of the bikini area for laser hair removal?

One of the particularities of this area is its sensitivity, which can make laser hair removal slightly more uncomfortable compared to other areas of the body. Nevertheless, with the use of modern lasers, it is possible to manage pain thanks to integrated cooling systems.

Laser hair removal in this area not only significantly reduces hair growth, but also prevents common problems such as ingrown hairs and skin irritation. The precision of the laser also means that hair removal can be tailored to individual preferences, whether full or partial. However, it is crucial to follow the advice on post-waxing care to maintain the treated area in good health.

What type of permanent bikini waxing should I choose?

  • The classic jersey:

Classic bikini laser hair removal aims to eliminate hair that extends beyond the undergarment line. It’s a discreet option that maintains a natural look while offering a neat finish.

  • The low cut bikini:

With scalloped bikini laser hair removal, a larger area is treated, creating a more pronounced removal of hair from the sides. This results in a cleaner bikini line, ideal for wearing higher-cut swimwear.

  • The Brazilian or semi-integral bikini:

Brazilian bikini laser hair removal eliminates most of the hair in the pubic area, often leaving a small strip or triangle of hair. It provides a fresh, clean feel while retaining a natural look.

  • The full jersey:

Laser hair removal of the full bikini area aims to completely eliminate hair from the pubic and anal areas. This is the most complete option, offering a completely smooth surface, ideal for those seeking a very clean permanent hair removal solution.

What precautions should I take before undergoing bikini laser hair removal?

The precautions to be taken before a laser hair removal session are the same as before any body or facial hair removal. For laser hair removal to be effective, these hairs must be in the regrowth phase. That’s why it’s necessary to shave the area to be depilated carefully the day before each session. But don’t wax it. Some methods, such as waxing or electric epilators, pull out the hair, making the laser ineffective.

Also, treatment cannot be carried out on skin that has been overexposed to the sun. Finally, your doctor will take the time to check that you are a good candidate for this treatment. It may be contraindicated in certain individuals, notably those with coagulation disorders or skin tumors, and pregnant women.

How does a permanent bikini laser hair removal session at Centre Epilium & Skin work?

Before undergoing definitive laser hair removal in the bikini area, an aesthetic and medical diagnosis of the pubic area is imperative. Once the best treatment has been defined, a first session is scheduled:

  • Both doctor and patient wear eye protection.
  • The laserist sets the laser parameters and performs a test shot on a small area of skin.
  • The area to be depilated is swept evenly with a handpiece.
  • A soothing cream is applied to the depilated area.
  • A session lasts between 10 and 20 minutes

What precautions should I take after bikini laser hair removal?

Following a laser hair removal session on the bikini area, it is essential to adopt certain precautions to promote healing and avoid any complications.

Applying a repair cream will help soothe and rehydrate the skin, facilitating recovery. It’s also crucial to avoid heat sources such as hot baths, steam rooms or saunas for a week or so, as heat can further irritate already sensitive post-treatment skin. Exposure to UV rays, whether natural or artificial, can cause unwanted pigmentation or irritation, so it’s essential to protect the treated area from the sun or tanning beds for at least a fortnight.

In addition, it would be beneficial to wear comfortable, non-irritating clothing, as well as to avoid activities that may cause friction or excessive perspiration in the treated area, to enable optimal healing.

What are the results of permanent bikini laser hair removal?

Destroyed hairs take a few days to fall out. As the sessions progress, the effects of laser bikini hair removal become increasingly visible: pubic hair is less dense and finer. By the end of the protocol, over 90% of the hair targeted by the laser has been permanently eliminated.

What questions does the doctor ask the patient before bikini waxing?

Before bikini laser hair removal, the doctor will ask the patient about his or her medical history, any allergies and previous hair removal experiences. He also asks about the patient’s expectations of the final result, and about any medications that might interfere with the treatment.

What are the contraindications to bikini waxing?

Contraindications include certain skin conditions such as psoriasis or eczema, skin infections, genital herpes, pregnancy, and certain photosensitizing drug treatments. It’s crucial to discuss this during the initial consultation to ensure that the treatment is safe for your particular situation.

What are the gynecological risks of laser hair removal?

Integral laser hair removal can cause burns or skin irritation in the genital area. There is also a possibility, albeit minimal, of infection if hair removal is carried out in non-sterile conditions, which is not the case with Epilium. Doctors often recommend leaving a small area of hair to maintain a natural barrier against bacteria and other pathogens.
