If you want a permanently smooth hair free bikini line all year around then think laser! Say NO to waxing and shaving, and YES to home laser hair removal.
The laser hair removal for the bikini area is one of the most common procedures performed in-salon.
Now, with the influx of laser hair removal gadgets into the market, you can now do this yourself within the comfort of your own home. Consider this, if you go to a salon for a treatment then you will be completely exposed, I mean completely.
Some women might be ok with this, but some might find having a complete stranger touching their private parts and staring at them close up a little weird.
As women get older pubic hair will start to appear outside of the usual territory. If this is going to be a problem for you then permanent hair removal within the bikini area is a must.

The electrical beauty manufacturer Tria have developed the Precision. This is purpose built to tackle hair removal on the more sensitive body parts such as the face, underarms and bikini area.
The slim light weight design makes it perfect for maneuvring in tight spaces. The devices costs around $300 which is a lot less then the $500 you would expect to pay in a salon.
I have written a blog post about facial hair which features a full review on the Tria Precision. You might want to read this post as well.
There are two types of Bikini laser treatments that you can opt for. A standard bikini line or a extended bikini line. The “bikini line” is the crease that joins the top of the thigh to the edge of where a typical bikini bottom would end.
A standard bikini treatment involves only removing hair up to this line. For an extended bikini line you take the line about 3 to 4 inches deeper beyond the “bikini line”.
It is important to wear the right cloths when performing a bikini laser treatment. We recommend that you wear your favourite bikini bottoms with the least amount of coverage. This will ensure that you will see exactly wear you need to treat and remove the hair.

Laser Hair Removal Bikini Area Side Effects
A red bumpy rash around the bikini area is the most common side effect you will get after a treatment. If this happens then it is possible you have an inflammation of the hair follicle.
We suggest that you exfoliate properly a couple of days after your laser treatment to remove any treated hairs. This will help prevent any infection and future soreness.
We also recommend using aloe after a treatment, some thick lotions may clog your pores which could start a breakout.
There are other side effects that you might need to consider when performing a laser hair removal treatment at home. Read our permanent laser hair removal hair removal guide for more of an insight.
Lidocaine cream can be used to numb the skin prior to a treatment to help with the pain.
Are laser hair removal bikini area treatments permanent?

The FDA defines laser removal as “permanent hair reduction” and as “long-term, stable reduction in the number of hairs re-growing after a treatment regime, which may include several sessions”.
Laser hair removal results can last for years so having your bikini line treated by laser is definately worth while.
