Everything you need to know about Brazilian Laser Hair Removal.

MySkin Laser on 26 August 2015

Had enough of the regular trips to the beauty salon? Or enduring painful ingrown hairs from a DIY Brazilian? By now, you may have heard of the alternative—laser hair removal.

Laser hair removal is a permanent way to reduce hair, for good! This sophisticated laser technology can be used for everything—from underarms, lips, eyebrows, and yes, even bikini lines and Brazilians. It sounds too good to be true, right? Wrong! It really works, just see what our happy customers have to say.

Compared to a lifetime of waxing, laser hair removal is a cost effective, safe and relatively painless method of hair removal. The only catch is that it’s permanent, which is not much of a catch at all! With laser hair removal, you can avoid painful waxing and ingrown hairs, whilst being able to keep your body looking the way you like it.

If you’re thinking about taking the plunge and getting Brazilian laser hair removal, we are here to answer your questions. Find out more about getting laser hair removal, or call to speak to a laser hair removal specialist today.

If you’re familiar with Brazilian waxing, then laser hair removal will be a breeze by comparison.

How does Brazilian laser hair removal work?

How does a laser stop the growth of hair? Let's explain the science behind laser hair removal.

With the use of advanced laser technology, our highly trained laser therapists apply a focused pulse of laser line to the exact areas you want to have hair removed. This light is set at a specific wavelength and will only target the darker melanin in the hair.

As the laser is absorbed by the hair, it travels into the hair follicle. The laser has the effect of destroying the hair root so no new hair will grow from the follicle. The laser can only target established hair, so it will take a number of sessions to ensure that all hair has been removed.

Am I a good candidate for Brazilian laser hair removal?

Although most people will be able to get laser hair removal given the right technology, at the end of the day everyone is different. There is really no such thing as a 'one size fits all' with Brazilian laser hair removal, so it’s important to consult a laser hair removal specialist to discuss your personal circumstances.

How do I prepare for laser hair removal?

First, we would recommend having a free consultation with one of our laser hair removal specialists. This way you can get to know us, and we will also get to know you and what results you are hoping to achieve. Brazilian laser hair removal is a delicate procedure, and we want you to have full confidence in our staff, equipment and facilities.

By the end of your consultation, you should be fully aware of what to expect from the treatment, and your expectations should match up with the likely outcome.

Are there any side effects?

Always make sure you trust the laser clinic and the technician before you commit to Brazilian laser hair removal; a laser is a potential danger when used incorrectly and this risk is increased around sensitive areas!

You may experience some temporary side effects depending on how sensitive your skin is. Redness is often a natural response to treatment, and will usually disappear over the course of a day or two. Until then, you should avoid hot showers, or spas and pools with chemicals.

Will it hurt?

If you’re familiar with Brazilian waxing, then laser hair removal will be a breeze by comparison.

Yes, there is a sensation, but normally nothing painful. Many of our clients liken the sensation of Laser Hair Removal to a small elastic band snapping against the skin. If you are particularly sensitive to the laser, our therapists can apply a numbing agent to make the treatment more comfortable.

How many sessions will I need and how much will it cost?

The number of laser hair removal sessions you will need – as well as how long each session will take – will depend upon a number of factors unique to you.

Your skin tone, hair colour and hair thickness will all impact how many treatment sessions you will need. Typically, around 6-8 Brazilian laser hair removal sessions will be needed for permanent results, with each session taking about 10 to 15 minutes to complete.

Cost, of course, is dependent on the number of sessions you require. But developments in laser technology over the years has made the treatment more accessible and affordable than ever. Check our pricing list for the latest prices on our Brazilian hair removal treatments.
