What is the right method for depilating the bikini area? There is no clear answer to this question. The choice of method depends on the personal preferences of each woman. Here is an overview of different methods: shaving, waxing or IPL laser.
Pubic hair removal by shaving is still the number one method. The advantages of this method are that it is painless and relatively easy to perform. The disadvantage: if you have little experience, you can cut yourself and the result is short-lived. In addition, the skin becomes irritated. Many women complain about pimples, ingrown hairs that can become inflamed and skin irritation, especially when shaving the bikini area. This happens especially after shaving several times, as the hairs grow back harder and darker.
With waxing, warm wax is applied to the areas of the body that need to be depilated. When the wax sets, the hairs can be pulled out with a jerk. The results are impressive because firstly, most of the hairs are removed and secondly, the hairs only grow back after three or four weeks. The big disadvantage: waxing is time-consuming due to the preparation of the wax and the application is painful. In addition, it has to be repeated regularly.
Similar to laser hair removal, the Intensed Pulsed Light (IPL) system also projects high-energy light onto the skin. First, a thin layer of gel is applied to the skin to ensure optimal light transmission. Controlled light pulses enter the upper skin layer via an applicator and are transported to the follicle (the outer hair sheath that surrounds the hair root in a sac-like shape). In the process, several hair roots are reached at the same time. The melanin transmits the light and converts it into heat. In this way, the follicle and the hair root are destroyed and can no longer produce hair in the future.
Because IPL Laser Hair Removal can only treat hair follicles that are in the growth phase (only these contain enough melanin), several sessions are necessary to permanently destroy all hairs. Thus, about 30-40 percent of the hairs are in the growth phase at the same time. The interval between sessions is about 6 to 10 weeks. The great advantage of the IPL method: At the end of the treatment, you have a permanently hair-free bikini area.
Even hair removal with IPL is only successful in the long term if it is carried out by experienced specialists in several sessions. At BellaDerma’s specialist centres in Berlin-Mitte and Berlin-Charlottenburg you will find excellently trained staff and be treated expertly.
