Many women have been waxing their bikini area for years – either by doing it themselves at home or with the help of a professional. Bikini waxing is an acceptable practice if you can avoid the dreaded rashes, ingrown hairs, and burns.
Laser By Sia offers an alternative to bikini wax that is quick, easy, and permanent with the use of the latest technology. This is the best way to remove any unwanted hair on the face and body because it will not cause ingrown hairs and will even treat existing ones! These are unfortunate side-effects of traditional and ineffective methods like shaving, waxing, and plucking. Often itchy, painful, and very unsightly, these are not something you would want in any part of your body, most especially in your sensitive areas.
Thankfully, the most respected laser hair removal clinic in Sydney, Laser By Sia, not only removes unwanted hair, but also removes painful and ugly ingrown ones from the bikini line – and everywhere else – from your very first treatment!
There are two common types of bikini wax – the French and the Brazilian. You can have these done in several ways: by doing it yourself at home, by a professional, with the use of strips, or with the use of hot wax. Regardless of the method or the type of wax, ingrown hairs are unavoidable.
What is an ingrown hair?
This is a condition where a hair curls back or grows sideways into the skin or back into the follicle. It is often accompanied by an infection of the follicle, inflammation, and a ‘razor rash’. While these most commonly appear in areas where the skin is shaved or waxed, it can appear anywhere and can develop whenever hair is broken off short with a sharp tip.
What is laser hair removal?
This treatment is very quick, uses no chemicals, leaves no residues, and, unlike other methods, does not travel past the skin and into your bloodstream or glands. This is why it can be used for the genital area or for other sensitive areas. If you have been suffering through a monthly bikini line wax, only to be disappointed with the results, this is the right choice for you.
How does this treatment get rid of ingrown hairs?
Medically, this is the only treatment which permanently stops ingrown hairs. Every growing hair has an oil gland attached to it which releases sebum (oil) for lubrication during regrowth. When a hair is trapped underneath the skin as an ingrown, it keeps growing and the sebum keeps being released. This causes the ingrown to get larger and sometimes, infected due to the trapped oil. Laser stops the regrowth, therefore stopping sebum production and eliminating the ingrown. Following your treatment, the hair will break up and dissipate into the blood stream and disappear. If the site has been infected or a boil has developed, it will heal on the day it was treated.
How long does it take and how much does it cost?
The treatment is quick, easy, and hygienic. It only takes approximately 5 minutes to do your bikini line or 10 minutes to give you a full Brazilian treatment. This is the most effective way to get a smooth and silky genital area without ingrown hairs. You may view our price list to learn how cost-effective it is.
How many treatments will I need?
You will need a number of treatments, performed every 5-6 weeks, until the follicle is no longer able to support regrowth. For best results, you may also need one or two maintenance appointments a year following successful completion of your treatments to keep the area as smooth and hair-free as possible. Also, this means any ingrown hair will disappear from the treated area on the very first appointment. You do not have to wait for visible regrowth for your next session.
How does it remove unwanted hair
A technology called Photothermolysis is used which takes the light energy from the laser and converts it into heat energy, damaging the follicle. After a series of treatments, the follicle becomes sterile and cannot support regrowth.
Will it hurt?
This treatment hurts less than a self bikini wax! Our lasers are equipped with Dynamic Cooling which freezes the skin on contact, allowing the laser to pass through without causing damage to the surrounding tissue, making it quick and almost painless.
