With currents trends going towards having a fuzz-free genital area, ladies have been flocking towards waxing and shaving for a smooth pubic region. Even those who do not wish to go completely bare, it is sensible to treat the bikini line, so that no stray hairs peek out when dressed in a swim suit.
Waxing and shaving are not without problems. In-growing hairs are common and painful. They can also leave scars on the skin, negating the clean appearance desired. The stubble from shaving is also prickly and uncomfortable.
It is now possible to permanently remove the hair from the genital area. Whether the desire is for a bikini line treatment or full Brazilian, a series of IPL photoepilation treatments can kill off over 90% of the hairs. Most are very pleased with the resultant clean, smooth appearance.
The procedure is extremely safe when done by someone experienced in the technique. Changing the machine settings to suit the variable skin tone is essential. A common concern is risk to the internal organs. This is unfounded as the light energy doesn’t penetrate beyond the mid dermis level of the skin. Certainly it’s probably best to postpone the treatment if menstruating. But this is to avoid mess during the treatment.
In terms of discomfort, most describe it as on par with waxing. The process feels hot, specially in the areas with darker skin & more hair. However, the process is extremely fast, usually complete in less than 10 minutes. And with each course being just 6-8 sessions, it won’t be long until a smooth fuzz-free bikini area becomes a reality.
