What To Expect During a Bikini Line Laser Hair Removal Treatment
Hair removal methods like shaving, waxing, and plucking are only a quick fix – temporary solutions to embarrassing hair growth. Venus Versa hair removal treatments
are an ideal solution for anyone who wants to reduce unwanted hair on their face or body permanently.
Venus Versa transforms the hair removal process by utilizing advanced technology to target and destroy the follicle beneath the skin’s surface. Over time, this significantly reduces hair growth and offers long-lasting results. This treatment is ideal for sensitive areas, like the bikini line, as the applicator has a built-in cooling feature to make treatments as comfortable as possible.
The Venus Versa Hair Removal Process
Venus Versa hair removal utilizes IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) to reduce hair growth. This versatile treatment can be applied to most body areas, including the bikini line. Short wavelengths of light are emitted into the targeted treatment areas. During this process, the hair follicles are heated and growing hairs are destroyed. A series of treatments discourages new hair growth over time.
Venus Versa hair removal treatments are ideal for reducing the risk of ingrown hairs, a common side effect of hair removal in the bikini area. Hair grows in different stages and at different rates for everyone. 6-10 treatments per area, every 4-8 weeks apart, are necessary to achieve permanent results.
Venus Versa can target a wide range of aesthetic concerns with different clinical applications. Other skin concerns appropriate for treatment include anti-aging, skin resurfacing, skin hyperpigmentation
, and sun damage.
Preparing For Laser Treatments
The first step in the hair removal process is to schedule a consultation with a licensed provider. During the consultation, our provider will explain how the process works, how many treatments are necessary, and what to do before and after each treatment. Following these instructions will minimize potential side effects while producing the most effective results.
About six weeks before treatment, it’s recommended that you stop plucking or waxing, as the hair follicle must be intact for treatments. The skin must also be at its natural melanin levels during treatment, so patients must avoid tanning or using any sunless tanner.
Side Effects Are Subtle
Side effects of IPL hair removal treatments are minor and should subside within a few hours of treatment. It is common for the skin to swell or redden in the first few hours after a session. Itching is not uncommon, but moisturizing the treatment area can provide relief. Everyone’s body reacts differently to hair removal treatments, so side effects can also vary.
To help minimize side effects, you must follow the proper aftercare instructions given to you by your provider. First and foremost, it’s essential to avoid sun exposure. This includes natural and artificial sun, as both can have adverse effects. Be sure to gently clean the treatment area twice a day and apply sunscreen. Avoiding excessive sun exposure is recommended for at least two weeks before and two weeks afterward. Hot baths, massages, or any treatment that requires direct contact with the treatment area should be avoided for the first two days.
Brazilian Vs. Bikini Hair Removal
Both Brazilian and bikini hair removal treatments remove all or some of the unwanted hair that grows in the pubic region; however, the two treatments do slightly differ. Both treatments provide long-term results and reduce the need for shaving, waxing, and plucking.
Bikini Hair Removal – Targets the hair on the side and the top of the pubic area.
Brazilian Hair Removal – Eliminates all pubic hair.
