❶ What is the difference between bikini wax and bikini laser hair removal?
Bikini wax is removing the hair by the root by using hot waxes. After waxing, your private area will be smooth and hairless right away. Bikini waxing is not so much painful if the waxer has professional skill and use good waxing products. The hair starts to regrow 5-7 days after waxing, you may need a bikini wax once a month. It’s a short term result.
Bikini laser hair removal is using the light or laser machines to destroy the hair follicles. With this treatment, the hair on the surface of the skin will be shaved off, the hair follicles under the skin will absorb light during the laser process, then fall out after 1-2 weeks. After the laser process, you feel like you have just shaved the hair. High-quality machine will make hair removal completely painless and highly effective, faster hair removal. After 8-10 laser sessions, you may not need to worry about “removal of pubic hair” anymore. The effect can last for months or years depending on individual case.
If you want to remove hair follicles immediately in the private area to go to the beach or wear sexy clothes, then laser hair removal is not the right solution, just choose waxing.
❷ Is bikini laser hair removal safe? Can a pregnant woman get it?
Yes, bikini laser hair removal is safe, but it is not suggested for pregnant women.
In 1997, the U.S Food and Drug Administration approved laser hair removal as a safe method to remove the hair. However, the treatment is only safe when a well-trained technician performs the procedure and the machine is in a good condition. Also, an experienced technician will be able to reduce risks and provide excellent results.
No studies have been done to prove that it’s safe for mothers and babies, doctors usually advise pregnant women not to get laser hair removal. If you are pregnant, you should get bikini waxing.
❸ Is it painful than a bikini wax?
Bikini laser hair removal with high-quality machines is almost painless. It is surely much less painful than a bikini wax.
At Waxing House, with good machines and experienced technicians, you do not need numbing cream or relief pills before or after the treatment. The area may be a little red and irritated immediately after each session, but this will quickly disappear.
❹ How many sessions do I need?
At least 8-10 sessions.
Bikini laser hair removal needs more sessions than any other parts of the body. The hair grows thicker and harder in the intimate area, and the hair roots are also stronger. Therefore, you will need at least 8-10 sessions to achieve long-lasting results.
Everybody is different, the number of needed sessions varies per individual. The number of sessions will also vary on many factors such as the hair growth cycle, hormone levels, as well as genetics. People whose hair grows faster and coarser will need additional sessions. People with high hormone levels, light color hair or white hair roots also need more sessions than others.
In brief, nobody can tell exactly how many bikini laser hair removal sessions you will need. You will need multiple treatments in 8-12 months to get the long-term effect.
❺ Is laser hair removal permanent? How long do the results last?
Laser hair removal is not permanent but it is long-lasting. Some people see hair reduction for a few months while others enjoy smooth, stubble-free skin for years.
Long-lasting results vary per individual due to many factors mentioned above. It is normal that you might notice a few hairs left or some new hairs start to regrow after a certain time. Therefore, touch-ups may be needed to maintain the result.
❻ Does the bikini laser hair removal improve ingrown hair?
YES. Some people get ingrown hair in the private area and they want to improve the situation. After a few sessions of bikini laser hair removal, you will notice a reduction in ingrown hair.
❼ Does the hair fall out right away? What happens right after the treatment?
You feel smooth skin right after a bikini waxing because it takes off the hair root right away. However, you’ll feel like you just shave the hair after the bikini laser hair removal session. It often takes 5-14 days for the hair to fall off after the treatment, then you can enjoy the hair-free feeling.
However, not 100% of the hair will fall out, some strong hair will be left and need more sessions to fall off. As mentioned above, you will need more sessions to achieve the expected results.
❽ Should I shave before getting laser?
Shaving the intimate area before the treatment is essential as this is a very sensitive area. Even a careful shaving might cause slight scratches, and the skin needs time to recover. Therefore, it is better to shave the intimate area at least 1-2 days before your appointment.
❾ How often should I get a bikini laser hair removal?
At Waxing House, clients should get a bikini laser hair removal every 3-4 weeks. It’s the minimum interval time for laser hair removal treatment with good machines. Some spas using bad machines without hair removal effect will ask you to come every week, which is not good for your skin.

- Avoid sun exposure. You should not get a bikini laser hair removal at least 1 week before and after going to the beach
- Wear loose and cotton clothes
- Avoid using hot water for cleansing the private areas, hot tubs, and steam rooms within the first 5-7 days after the treatment.
