There are 4 types of laser hair removal bikini: basic, extended, Brazilian and the Hollywood. How the treatment will be performed depends on what type of bikini does the patient prefers. Here, we will discuss why laser hair removal can solve your problems about your bikini fuzz, and the difference between each bikini type.
Types of Bikini
In basic bikini, the laser is applied in the area that is one inch outside of the bikini line. The bikini line is the natural crease between the legs and the torso. Visible fuzz in front of the bikini and on the inner leg line is targeted by the laser for this treatment. Basic bikini isn’t a popular treatment for laser hair removal, as it doesn’t cover a large area.
Laser hair removal for the extended bikini covers all types of swimsuit. The treatment extends 2 inches on the side and the top part of the bikini line. For the treatment, the laser hair specialist often leaves a small part of hair, also known as the landing strip. The labia and the thong area are included in this treatment.
The Brazilian bikini is the most popular area for hair removal. For this type, patients can customize their treatment, and can tailor the style, whether they want to leave a small strip of hair on the front, or not. Because the Brazilian bikini can be tailored based on the patient’s aesthetic desires, styles vary greatly for this treatment. Thus, it’s advised that women must first shave the hair that they want to be removed, so the treatment will be done exactly how they expect it to turn out.
In the Hollywood laser hair removal, the entire area will be treated, removing all visible hairs. Any fuzz on the front, and back will be treated except on the shiny part of the skin near the labia. In Havana Skin Clinic, hairs that grow on the shiny skin are not treated because it can lead to burns, blisters or skin infection. The skin within this part of the bikini is extremely sensitive, which may be harmed when treated with a laser.

Due to frequent shaving or waxing, the hairs get trapped under the skin that may result in infected or permanent bumps. Ingrown hairs can be difficult to treat. Because there is no way to remove the trapped hair out of the skin, it’s either you will wait for it to come out when the hair becomes extremely long or get it treated with laser hair removal. Ingrown hairs on the bikini can be annoying, and sometimes it can cause pain. It may also damage the skin permanently.
Low quality razors can cut the skin, and result in permanent scars. The bikini may look unsightly, and cause insecurities during intimate moments with the partner. To avoid having scars, the best way is to undergo laser hair removal. This treatment results in permanent removal of hair. Therefore, the freedom from shaving, and saving the skin from scars.
For a Smoother, Flawless Bikini
The hair is not completely removed by shaving, as the hair remains below the dermis that may cause the skin to look darker. Frequent shaving and waxing may also damage the skin, which can result in hyperpigmentation. Though sometimes the darkening of the skin is irreversible, in some cases it could be permanent if not treated.
