While it is undeniable that Brazilian laser hair removal is a pain-free and effective way of avoiding ingrown hairs and regular shaving – the safety of getting your hair removed down there is a topic that continues to receive much debate.
The biggest worry that both doctors and patients have about Brazilian hair removal is that it concerns a very private and sensitive area on the body, and the fact that it is mostly unknown as to why we actually have hair on our private parts.
However, this has not stopped both men and women from grooming this area to fit their lifestyle and contribute to personal hygiene. If you too, have been on the fence about whether to go hair-free down there – here are 4 things to know that can help you decide.
#1: It is a completely safe procedure.
SHR hair removal, along with other similar laser technology is considered to be an extremely safe treatment that has not been reported to have any major side effects.
Our SHR machines utilizes powerful and focused light energy in order to destroy your hair follicles, which may sound scary to most people – but in actuality, does no harm to the surrounding tissues, especially since its wavelength can be tailored according to each individual.
While some redness and swelling may occur – this typically goes away within the first 2 days of the treatment.
#2: It does not lead to fertility issues.
A common myth about laser hair removal is that it causes fertility issues – but this has been completely debunked.
Each shot penetrates less than a millimeter into the skin, and doesn’t go anywhere near your ovaries to cause any significant damage and adverse side effects. With proper application by a specialist, the treatment is highly precise and accurate.
#3: It is not recommended to go for treatment before or while on your period.
While SHR hair removal is a largely pain-free process, treating a sensitive area such as the bikini line can hurt a little more before or during your period. This is why we highly advise you to consider your menstrual cycle when booking your appointments if you want to ensure a more comfortable session.
A vital step is applying our cooling Princess Gel™ before the start of your treatment, which not only make the process more enjoyable, but also provides moisturizing and whitening benefits!
#4: It is one of the areas that sees the best results!
Since this area is well-protected from the sun – it often suffers from less complications post-treatment. Some ladies even see results right after the first session, with a gradual improvement with each subsequent treatment.
If you feel nervous or shy about revealing your bikini area to a stranger – there is no need to be! Treating this area is extremely fast, and before you know it, you will be done! You can even request for the same therapist throughout your entire course of treatment.
The key point to takeaway is that when done with specialists that know what they are doing – Brazilian laser hair removal is the safest, and most powerful ways to remove your hair not just in this sensitive area, but anywhere from top-to-toe.
At the end of the day, the choice is completely up to you.
