Laser hair removal is a great way to get rid of hair on the bikini line, so follow these tips for the best results!
Are you tired of shaving your bikini line and seeing those red bumps and black spots? Does the idea of waxing down there seem way too painful to be worth it? Then you might want to look into Candela laser hair removal for your bikini line. Here are some general tips to choose a clinic, prepare for the removal and maintain the results.
1. Choose a physician with experience
When choosing a clinic, go for those who have a doctor on staff and have a long experience in laser hair removal. Practitioners with longer experience are better at evaluating your skin tone and hair thickness and density to give you the best possible treatment. It’s especially important with the bikini line because the skin is more sensitive there than on other parts of the body.
2. Discuss the treatment before making your appointment
Don’t give in to pressure to get an appointment right away and ask to meet a practitioner before you commit. Laser hair removal, especially for the bikini line, is costly and may require several visits, so make sure you trust the doctor and feel comfortable at the clinic.
Ask questions about the light type, the length of the treatment, the hair cycle, etc. The better informed you are beforehand the more likely you are to be satisfied with your results.
3. Have realistic expectations
Contrary to popular belief, laser hair removal is not permanent. Hair does regrow, however thinner and slower. Going to the clinic and expecting all your hair to be gone after one treatment is sure to lead you to disappointment.
During your preliminary appointment, discuss your expectations with the doctor. He or she will explain the procedure in more detail.
4. Avoid shaving or waxing too close to your appointment
In order to work properly, the laser machine requires a certain length of hair. If you shave or wax right before your treatment, the machine might not have enough to find the hair follicle.
To prepare for your appointment, follow your clinic’s instructions. They will have all the information you need to make your treatment as painless and easy as possible.
5. Be ready for return visits
Because the hair growth cycle isn’t uniform with all hair, you will probably need a few visits to get the most out of laser hair removal. This is because hair is better removed at a specific time in the hair growth cycle.
To get all the hair at this specific period, then, you may need to visit your clinic more than once. The usual number of treatments varies between five and ten, but it may be different for you.
6. If in doubt, abstain
If you think that laser hair removal might not be for you (if you have dark hair on dark skin or pale hair on pale skin or have a skin condition), don’t be afraid to say no. Don’t spend money on something that won’t be effective for you.
