Brazilian Laser Hair Removal FAQ
If you’ve ever had a Brazilian wax before, you probably thought what everyone else does: “This hurts!” You might feel the results are worth it, but what if there was a better, less painful, and permanent way to get the same smooth skin around your most sensitive parts? Brazilian laser hair removal by Body Details True Laser® Centers uses cutting-edge technology to ensure that you never have to wax or shave again.
An Explanation of Brazilian Laser Hair Removal
All hair grows from the base of the follicle. Laser hair removal involves aiming a laser at the target follicles. The laser light travels down the hair shaft and heats the bulb's base, rendering it inert. Without access to nutrients, the hair falls out, and the pore closes. The result is that the effective area is smooth and unable to grow hair.
Frequently Asked Questions about Brazilian Laser Hair Removal
If you’re considering this state-of-the-art solution to the hair around the upper thigh, pubic region, and around the anus, you probably have questions. Here are some of the most common questions we receive at the Body Details True Laser®
What Parts Does Brazilian Laser Hair Removal Target?
Like a Brazilian Wax, the term "Brazilian" laser hair removal involves the pubic region, external genitals (labia), the area between the upper thighs, and the skin around the anus. This is more extensive than Bikini laser hair removal, which focuses on the exposed area when wearing a bikini bottom.
What Does Brazilian Hair Removal Cost?
While Brazilian Laser Hair treatments generally cost more than an individual waxing session, over the long term, laser hair removal is more cost-effective. Body Details achieves this by offering an all-in-one price, which means you won’t have to pay more if you need more treatments. We also offer no-interest finance options to those who qualify with manageable monthly payments as low as and often lower than the cost of monthly waxing. The best part is our laser-hair removal package offers free touchups for life under the written terms of our free lifetime guarantee. Once you've completed your payment plan you're done. No more monthly payments like you'd have waxing for life. When you weigh the lifetime benefits against monthly trips to the spa, it really does make financial sense to opt for Laser Hair Removal.
Is Brazilian Laser Hair Removal Painful?
This procedure does involve targeting some of the most sensitive skin on your body in the pubic area, so you will likely feel mild irritation, but it’s nothing compared to a wax strip being pulled away from your skin. Most people liken it to a rubber band being snapped against the skin. At Body Details True Laser Centers, our medical technicians use the GentleMax Pro True Laser, the most powerful laser in its class approved by the FDA. This means that the tech doesn’t need to spend as much time on the affected area. Additionally, our lasers have a built-in DCD (dynamic cooling device) that sprays cryogenically cooled air with each laser pulse to keep your skin cool and comfortable during the process.
How Many Sessions Will I Need?
Brazilian laser hair removal usually requires multiple sessions because hair grows in different stages and the laser can only affect hair in the growth phase. Typically, treatments are spaced around four to six weeks apart. Every patient is different, but most people require five to ten treatments to achieve the desired results. If you require more, it will be included in your all-inclusive package.
How Long Do I Have to Wait Between Sessions?
Hair grows in cycles. You have to wait between sessions because only hair that is in the active growth phase (anagen) can be removed at the time of treatment. Treatments are scheduled every 8 weeks to allow your body to cycle new hair follicles into the anagen phase. Over a series of successive treatments, all of the treatable hair will cycle through this phase and eventually be removed.
How Long Do Brazilian Laser Hair Removal Sessions Take?
Sessions usually take less than 30 minutes. For your convenience, Body Details True Laser® Centers are open in the early morning, evenings, and on Saturdays, so you can schedule your appointments around work.
Does Brazilian Laser Hair Removal Work on Dark Skin?
You may have heard that laser hair removal does not work on dark skin. Some laser machines require the ability to see the hair follicle against the skin, so dark hair against dark skin or blond hair against fair skin presented a challenge for the laser operator. But Body Details uses the GentleMax Pro True Laser, which combines a 1064 nm Nd:YAG laser with a 755 nm alexandrite laser. It's important to note that while Brazilian laser hair removal can be very effective, individual results can vary based on skin type, hair color, and other factors. For darker skin in the bikini area, the laser can be calibrated to penetrate deeper, down to the vessels that feed the hair follicles. Our laser system does work on darker skin.
How is Brazilian Laser Hair Removal Better than Brazilian Waxing?
Brazilian Waxing works by applying wax to the treatment area and rapidly pulling it away from the skin. The wax grips the hair shaft and pulls the root out if all goes well. Because of the nociceptors (pain receptor nerves) in the skin, waxing is extremely unpleasant. Waxing also requires stubble to grip for it to work, so it’s impossible to have continuously smooth skin with waxing. Laser, on the other hand, provides permanently smooth skin. Finally, Brazilian laser hair removal is cost-effective. If you had intended to continue brazilian waxing, switching to brazilian laser hair removal will save you thousands of dollars (and lots of pain) over the long term.
