Most patients can expect to get at least 6 treatments for Brazilian laser removal on their bikini and pubic region. Some people can get up to 8 or 10 sessions for  better results.

How Many Brazilian Laser Hair Removal Sessions Are Recommended? 

Shaving, waxing, plucking on your own can be time-consuming and frustrating, especially when you see hair growing back in just several weeks and months. But all your worries and exasperation with the traditional hair removal options can be solved with the widely popular Brazilian laser hair removal procedure.

A Brazilian laser procedure is a permanent hair removal method that eliminates the need for frequent maintenance of unwanted hair in the bikini area and other parts of the body. For starters, you’ll typically need an average of 6 to 8 treatment session appointments to remove your hair completely. 

In one laser hair removal session, you can expect to see at least 5% to 10% hair reduction in your bikini line and entire pubic and pelvic region. Although a Brazilian treatment is a more long-term solution than shaving and waxing, it’s still possible for hair to grow back in the treated area. This unwanted hair growth can be influenced by different factors, such as:

  • Genetics - believed to influence the thickness and length of hair growth in your body. 
  • Hormones - a large part of hair growth in your pubic area and genital region is affected by hormones. Hormonal changes during puberty mostly trigger the start of hair growth down there. 
  • Skin color and hair color - Brazilian laser hair removal is more effective on people with dark hair and light skin. Individuals with fair skin and light hair may need additional treatments to achieve desired Brazilian treatment results. 
  • Rate of hair growth - the hair growth cycle may vary for every individual and your doctor will have to assess your results after your first laser procedure to know when to schedule your next Brazilian hair removal treatment. 

Understanding Hair Growth After a Brazilian Laser Treatment

The reason why you need multiple treatments for the Brazilian procedure is that unwanted hair will eventually return to the treatment area. But unlike the misconception that hair grows back thicker, most patients discover that hair regrowth is lighter and less visible than before getting a Brazilian. 

The main cause why hair continues to grow even after getting a hair reduction treatment is because of your hair growth cycle. Now there are three main stages in the hair growth cycle: 

  • Anagen phase: this is the growth phase where new pubic hair actively grows in the genital and bikini region. Most pubic hair develops in the anagen phase for about 3 to 4 months and during this time, there is at least 30% hair growth in the private area. 
  • Catagen phase: this is a phase where hair growth slows down and the follicles begin to shrink, causing hair to detach from the follicle. Very few numbers of pubic hair remains at this stage and it can go on for several weeks. 
  • Telogen phase: this is when the hair follicle enters its dormant stage. During this time, new pubic hair can grow from the follicles and pushes the old hair away before starting the anagen phase. 

During the Brazilian procedure, most of the pubic hair that’s treated should be in the anagen or growing stage. Your provider will interrupt this cycle, using the laser device to heat and destroy the melanin in the hair follicle roots. The treatment will force the follicles to be unable to grow new hair so you can enjoy a hair-free look and freshly shaven feeling in your bikini area. 

Your hair can continue to enter the active anagen phase which is why recurrent Brazilian treatments are recommended every 4 to 6 weeks apart. This will ensure that your follicles remain in the dormant stage for you to maintain hairless and smooth skin. 

What Happens During a Brazilian Laser Hair Removal Procedure 

A Brazilian laser removal treatment is a safe, convenient, and efficient way to remove all hair in your bikini line, including in the labia and anus region. If you’re having worries about a Brazilian procedure being a painful hair removal experience, rest assured that your laser technician will follow careful measures to give you a comfortable treatment. Here’s what you can expect during and after a Brazilian laser session: 

  • Before starting, you’ll be asked to lie down comfortably and relax to ease your nerves. Your provider will put on a cooling gel or numbing cream to lessen the pain and discomfort from the laser. 
  • The laser hair removal machine will send beams of light energy toward the pubic hair. You won’t directly feel the heat or burn from the laser device but you may experience a sensation similar to a rubber band snapping against your skin. 
  • The treatment time for a full Brazilian hair removal procedure can take about 30 minutes depending on the amount of hair and size of the area being treated. 
  • Most patients can return to their normal activities after the treatment. However, you may experience temporary discomfort in the pubic region and you may have common side effects like redness, swelling, increased sensitivity, and minor itching. 
  • Most post-treatment reactions will go away on their own after a few days but you can alleviate the discomfort with a mild soothing cream or gel. 
  • Be sure to avoid sun exposure and tanning rooms for several weeks to allow the treated area to heal after getting lasers.

Brazilian vs Bikini Laser Hair Removal: Which One Should You Get?

The difference between a Brazilian and bikini treatment is the areas being covered by the laser. In a bikini hair removal, the laser will eliminate the hair around your bikini line and can sometimes reach the inner thighs where the borders of your underwear would end. It can also include the hair at the top of the pubic bone. 

For Brazilian treatment, it typically takes care of all hair around the bikini line, pubic region, and butt area. You can also choose to leave a neat landing strip or triangle shape of hair on your pubis. 

Both treatments are a great alternative to shaving and don’t cause any razor burn or ingrown hair. But when choosing which style of pubic hair removal to get, you have to consider your personal preference and goals:

  • Get a bikini laser treatment if: you want to trim your hair around the bikini line so you can look clean and smooth in a swimsuit. 
  • Get a full Brazilian treatment when: you want to eliminate the need for shaving and upkeep of hair in the pubic area and you want to look flawless and hair-free all year round.
