Brazilian Wax vs Brazilian Laser
Nothing brings a tear to the eye like the good old Brazilian wax! Brazilian waxing is a common procedure used by men and women alike to remove all genital hair, leaving clean, smooth skin. While women have been suffering through this painful procedure for years, it is also becoming increasingly popular among men because of the hygienic feeling it leaves. If used correctly, the Brazilian bikini wax temporarily gets rid of all genital hair. However, regrowth usually appears after a week and usually brings nasty ingrown hairs, a common side effect of this procedure and which can be unsightly, itchy, painful and difficult to remove. Laser By Sia provides a solution to get rid of the wax kit and the ingrown hairs! Previously, removal of unwanted or excess face and body hair meant shaving, plucking, waxing, or using various creams, which often led to ingrown hairs, burns, pimples and rashes – only to have regrowth after a few days! The quick, easy, and permanent solution for this can be found at the most respected laser hair removal clinic in Sydney, Laser By Sia.
You can have the Brazilian in two ways: by going to a salon and having a professional do it or by doing it yourself at home. There are also two types of Brazilians: the bikini where all hair is removed from the genitals and bum, leaving only a strip on the pubic bone; and the sphinx where all the hair from the navel to the bum is removed. Whether the waxing method uses cold or hot wax, the wax is applied liberally on very delicate and sensitive areas which grips the hair and pulls it out by the roots. While this may temporarily leave your skin smooth, it is not permanent and can also result in burns, rashes, and ingrown hairs. There are many other disadvantages to having a Brazilian – it is very messy and you need to wait for regrowth before going for another waxing.
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 infection and inflammation. You can often find this appearing in areas where the skin is shaved or waxed, even on your genitals after a Brazilian wax! Anything which causes the hair to be broken off short with a blunt tip can cause it. Whether you do your waxing by yourself or you go to a professional for it, you are almost sure to experience this. Fortunately, you can easily address and prevent this problem with laser treatment. What is laser hair removal? Unlike other hair removal methods, a laser treatment is quick, hygienic, and easy. It only takes approximately 5 minutes to treat your bikini line or approximately 10-15 minutes to get a full Brazilian treatment. Our very latest laser technology will not only remove hair permanently, but will prevent all the common side effects of other procedures. You can say goodbye to getting a Brazilian wax forever! How does it get rid of ingrown hairs? Getting rid of ingrown hair after a Brazilian wax is hard. Medically, laser is the only treatment that can permanently solve this problem. Every growing hair has an oil gland attached to it which releases sebum (oil) to lubricate the hair as it pushes through the skin. 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. Laser stops the regrowth, therefore stopping sebum production and treating the area. Following your treatment, the hair will stop growing, break up, and dissipate into the blood stream, which is why it is such an effective ingrown treatment. If you have infection due to another procedure, Laser By Sia will get rid of it for you! Why do women get unwanted hair? Genital hair is natural and protects the genitals from sweat, allergens, as well as aiding in the natural pheromone process. But over the years women have come to enjoy the clean, smooth and sexy feeling the Brazilian can provide. Many women feel that this is also more hygienic. But no matter if you know how to perform this procedure or you have it done by a professional, this will always result in an ingrown. Do men wax too? The men’s Brazilian wax is becoming increasingly popular as men, like women, enjoy the smooth, sexy feeling this treatment provides. The Brazilian wax for men can just include the speedo line or all the genital hair from belly button to bottom! Sadly, this can cause major ingrown hairs! Fortunately, there is a treatment for this. How can ingrown hairs be prevented? No matter how many tips or Brazilian wax FAQs you read, the only sure-fire way to prevent this is to not shave or wax, but you will be left with unwanted hair. Laser is the best solution to prevent regrowth and treat any existing ingrown hairs. Following your very first laser hair removal appointment, your ingrowns will disappear. Also, unlike the Brazilian waxing kit, you do not have to wait until regrowth is visible to go for your next treatment! 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. In the case of stubborn hormonal hair, you will notice significant reduction – regrowth will become finer, lighter and softer and, most importantly, less noticeable. 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. The very first appointment will immediately solve your ingrown and prevent new ones. Also, there is no need to wait for visible regrowth before going for your next session. How does laser hair removal work? This treatment works using a technology called Photothermolysis which takes light energy from the laser and converts it into heat energy, damaging the follicle. After a series of treatments, the follicle becomes sterile and can’t support regrowth. It is this technology that lets the treatment have permanent results. No matter what your Brazilian waxing salon claims, repeated waxing will not remove the hair permanently, it will not even result in hair reduction! The only thing it will achieve is temporary hair removal and ingrown hairs. Why is laser better than other methods? Laser is best for removing unwanted hair because it produces permanent results and it is the only cure for ingrown hairs. Other methods always result to regrowth, painful burns, pimples, ingrowns and sometimes, even infections. Depilatory creams and bleaches have their own problems because the skin can easily react to harsh chemicals and burn. These chemicals can also travel through the skin and into the bloodstream and glands. Which body parts can be treated? Laser can be used on any part of the body, such as on the face, chest, back, neck, genitals, arms, legs, and feet. Will it hurt? Our lasers are equipped with Dynamic Cooling Device that freezes the skin on contact allowing the laser to pass through without causing damage to the surrounding tissue. This makes it not only the most effective treatment for unwanted hair, but also makes it almost painless. After the treatments you can return to work immediately! How do I take care of my skin after my treatment? After your treatments, it is important you do not wax or pluck any regrowth. However, you can shave or use depilatory creams if you wish. But remember, you do not have to wait for regrowth to get your next treatment! Tired of being subjected to a Brazilian? Tired of its mess and fuss? Tired of the regular expense?
