Typically only used when describing hair removal, the bikini line refers to a woman’s pubic area within two or three inches from where the hem of a bikini or panty bottom would end. With regard to laser hair removal, the bikini line can also include some covered areas such as the sides of the labia and the top of the pubic region. Many women opt for this choice if they want to feel comfortable in a bathing suit or thong. This is similar to Brazilian hair removal but covers less area.
Many women undergo laser hair removal along their bikini line because it’s an area that requires a lot of upkeep, and laser hair removal is the only permanent solution available. Other hair removal options, such as waxing or shaving, can cause a significant amount of irritation that makes it difficult to simply throw on a bikini and head to the beach. Ingrown hairs, blemishes, razor burn, redness, and minor cuts and burns are not something that women want to be seen.
The benefits of permanent hair removal along the bikini line are endless. No more embarrassing sharp stubble or ingrown hairs that can leave scars. Without having to worry about maintaining their bikini line, women save a ton of time in the shower and are left with soft, smooth skin that will appear no different from the rest of their skin.
