Ok, so this is one of those questions you think you know – but you’re not totally sure – so you googled it. Am I right? Well, rest assured we will answer your inquiry right here and right now all the way down to the smallest detail. I know. It’s just one of those questions you can’t really bring up with friends or family in a casual way, but that’s ok! That’s what the internet is for.
So you’re curious about brazilian laser hair removal. Well, I was too at one point. Who wants a tangled mess down there? and who wants to keep shaving their privates over and over with a sharp metal blade? Ouch and yikes.
Well as you guessed, brazilian laser hair removal is a method to remove all pubic region hair permanently by laser. Many people do it because they just don’t want to bother with shaving or trimming or maintaining hair down there. And there’s not only the convenience factor, but over time the cost benefits are great! No more buying extra products or waxings every few months (or weeks for some people).
I should clarify when I say “all pubic region hair” – because it’s really up to you. If you want to leave a strip or triangle or rhombus, that’s totally doable. You just shave what you want to remove before you go and they’ll leave the rest.
The process of laser hair removal involves multiple visits. You cannot permanently remove hair with one visit. Because of the way hair grows on the human body, it takes several times for it to disappear. It takes about six to eight visits over the course of a few months depending on the person and hair cycle length for the area.
Now here are some frequently asked questions to satisfy your curious minds.
Does it hurt? Yes. It’s not crazy, but it does sting. I mean they’re literally shooting lasers into your privates. C’mon, there’s going to be a little pain. If you’re a guy tho, interestingly enough your testicles don’t hurt at all (go ahead pinch them right now – they don’t hurt!) so zap away!
Any side effects? Some minor ones. The area will be tender for a little bit. Some people experience itchiness, redness, and swelling. But it goes away in a day or two.
Does it work for everyone? No. It should work for most people, but if you have light skin the laser can’t see your hair! There are lasers now that can treat light haired people, but it’s still not as effective. Oh, and there are also some people that are just really really stubbornly hairy and it’s not that it doesn’t work for them – it just may take a LOT of visits.
Is it expensive? Yes and no. It depends on how many visits you need. The clinics that offer this service also vary widely on price. Note that the equipment they use also varies so keep that in mind. You can usually expect something along the lines of $90-200 per visit. There are often great deals on Groupon or LivingSocial, etc for laser treatments so I would look there to save a few bucks. But overall, the whole process is a great value in the long run.
Can they really get it all? Like… all of it? Yes. Labia. Buttcrack. Everything. I’m not going to lie – the process can be kind of humiliating but hey is having permanent smoothness worth the 15 minutes of humiliation? YEP!
Won’t people laugh at me as soon as I enter the clinic? Probably. Just kidding. No, these people see customers coming in for this exact thing all day. It’s really not that big of a deal so stop stressing out about it. Most places will give you a free consultation as well to go over the whole entire process so you can feel at ease.
Personally, I like to check Yelp or any other review site to make sure it’s not some back alley operation since your family jewels are at stake here. You can often find deals on these review sites too so be sure to do your homework before committing to a clinic.
Overall, the process is simple and it’s a wonderful feeling never having to worry about pubic hair again for the rest of your life. I highly recommend brazilian laser hair removal.
