Your Hair Removal Options
Various different options can be used to get rid of hair around the bikini area, but there are problems with all of them. Hair removal creams are messy and inconvenient, while waxing and shaving can damage the delicate skin in this area. If you nick yourself while shaving or if you get in-growing hairs after waxing or shaving, it can cause discomfort and even scarring. The pubic area is particularly likely to scar if you have cuts or ingrown hairs, so it is important to treat it very carefully.
Benefits of Laser Hair Removal
One way to avoid the pitfalls of waxing or shaving the bikini area is to try laser hair removal at the Dermadoc clinic in London instead. Laser treatment can permanently stop hair re-growth by destroying the follicles. There are some important advantages to choosing this form of hair removal for your bikini line:
- Permanent results: once the follicle is destroyed, it won’t grow back, so you won’t need to worry about hair removal before wearing your swimsuit.
- No cuts: there is no risk of cutting or damaging your skin when you have laser treatment, so you wont be at risk of infections or scarring as when shaving.
- No in-grown hairs: the follicle is destroyed during laser treatment rather than cut or pulled out, so there won’t be any risk of in-growing hairs that could cause inflammation, discomfort or keloid scarring.
However, laser hair removal does take some time. You will need multiple treatment sessions in order to get permanent results, so you will need to start your laser hair removal in London well ahead of your summer holiday.
