Unwanted body hair isn’t just unattractive but also unhygienic sometimes. Fortunately, there are many options for hair removal procedures within your reach. If you’re looking for a hair removal method that removes hair from the roots and doesn’t damage sensitive skin, then Brazilian laser hair removal might be best for you.
But are there any disadvantages to a Brazilian laser hair removal procedure? Compared to other hair removal methods, the disadvantages of this procedure are very minimal while the advantages are significantly better than the others. Brazilian laser hair removal offers a non-invasive, painless, and effective way to get rid of unwanted body hair.
Aesthetic treatments and procedures are available to help you maintain your hygiene and overall appearance. But like any other procedures, this method still has its own disadvantages such as the following:
In the long run, Brazilian laser hair removal is still more effective and less invasive compared to other treatments. Summarized in the table below are the disadvantages of Brazilian laser hair removal and how these compare with the alternative Brazilian hair removal treatments.
|Brazilian Laser Hair Removal||Alternative Methods|
|Requires multiple sessions||Requires more frequent sessions to remove unwanted hair|
|Permanent hair removal results aren’t guaranteed but this laser treatment requires less maintenance sessions||Permanent results aren’t guaranteed and these treatments require monthly or twice a month sessions, which are more frequent than laser hair removal|
|Expensive treatment sessions||Affordable treatment sessions, but expensive in the long run due to the frequency of maintenance sessions|
|Risky for patients with a dark skin-tone, and may be less effective for patients with light-colored hair. But using the right equipment, the safety and effectiveness of the laser treatment may be secured||Skin tone and hair color is irrelevant when it comes to the effectiveness of alternative methods|
|Risk of temporary, minimal skin damage which may be remediated by proper aftercare habits||Risk of greater skin damage and discoloration that may last longer than laser hair removal. These treatments may also result in some residue of unwanted hair that may cause ingrown hair growth|
Brazilian laser treatments offer an effective way to remove unwanted hair without the pain, discomfort, and side effects inflicted on your skin. This laser treatment will leave your hairless skin feeling silky-smooth and healthy.
Laser technology removes more hair faster than alternatives with ultimate precision in a relatively painless way. You may feel minor discomfort during the procedure, which is similar to having a rubber band hitting your skin. A cooling gel and topical anesthetic will be applied to your skin by a laser technician to help ease any mild pain and discomfort felt during the procedure.
Laser hair removal works by targeting the hairs attached to the follicles, heating them up, and eliminating them from the hair follicle. There may be some temporary side effects after the procedure, but laser light only causes minimal damage to your skin.
Brazilian laser hair removal is also the most recommended hair removal treatment for sensitive skin. So using this method on your intimate area will help you avoid ingrown hairs, razor burns, and rashes.
There is also essentially no risk of allergic reactions with Brazilian laser hair removal, as compared with traditional hair removal methods. The concentrated light beams used in Brazilian laser hair removal procedures don't contain any irritants.
Each treatment session for laser hair removal is expensive, but it actually allows you to save more compared with other treatments. This is a more cost-effective option in the long run as the intervals between maintenance treatments are longer.
You may notice some pubic hair that may sprout after your laser treatment but it’s usually much thinner and less dense than the previous ones that were removed. If you choose not to have maintenance sessions, the hair that eventually grows back will be different from the ones you had before.
Laser hair removal is a practical solution to eliminating hair in your pubic region. For long-term hair reduction, it may take approximately 5 to 12 treatments that have at least 4 to 6 weeks intervals to achieve your desired results. Depending on your hair regrowth, it usually takes a single session every 2 years to maintain your hairless intimate area.
Brazilian laser hair removal does come with a few disadvantages. Fortunately, the following aftercare tips may help further minimize the impact of these disadvantages:
For the visible side effects, it’s best to expect it to recover for at least 2 weeks after your session. Aside from the thinner appearance of your body hair, you may also expect your hair regrowth to be noticeably slower.
Aside from the aftercare tips, it’s also best to take note of the things that need to be avoided to allow your skin to fully recover from the Brazilian laser hair removal treatment. Some of which are the following:
Maintain your hairless intimate area with Brazilian laser hair removal treatment maintenance sessions that fit your hair growth cycle “down there”. For the best results, consult your doctor and only seek the services of an expert team that only uses advanced laser technology.
Bikini laser hair removal treatment is a more effective solution to unwanted hair growth. Laser removal may not be a permanent hair removal solution, but it’s more practical than waxing or shaving. For more effective results, consult a plastic surgeon to determine if this procedure is fit for your skin type and skin color.
