A permanent hair removal is an option for many men and women in Australia and around the world.

Before however, you had to visit a cosmetic/dermatologist clinic to seek permanent laser hair removal treatment, but today, with the availability of DIY kits, you can perform the procedure directly at home.

For example, Australian Aesthetic Devices laser hair removal devices remove hair as effectively and safely as it would in a professional’s clinic.

You can browse a range of products and order an optimal device.

However, if you are doing laser hair removal for the first time at home, it is recommended to consult a dermatologist to avoid unwanted skin problems.

Yes, these products work. You will see that they vary in price and only the Self works with all skin tones.

Apart from that, the IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) system is an effective way to kill the follicles at the root.

The challenge is that not all follicles die after a single exposure. Some need multiple exposures.

I have done the treatments in the clinic and everything available at home. I bought the Self, so I can’t really speak to the other products you mentioned.

It is less painful than any of the other treatments I have experienced because it really is a mild irritant and not a pain.

I thought it cost a little less than the other offers, which was attractive.

It’s a good question. The result of a home-based laser device is limited as compared to professional-grade laser machines.

The reason is a home-based device is a simple, scale down version of the same professional-grade device.

It has simple controls, safety switches and features that can be operated by almost anyone. To get the mass appeal, vendors make it simple.

But Does It Help In Hair Removal?

Well, it does. However, let’s understand a high-end home-based device can still have less than 50% power compared to advanced grade laser machines.

That means you will need a higher number of sessions frequently to control hair growth.

To give a perspective, you will need about 5-6 months of treatment as compared to years of use of the home-based device. This is as good as a temporary solution.

What If You Use It For Number Of Years?

With several months of usage, you start getting some efficiency in operating it. Therefore with precise uses, you can eventually be able to break the hair growth cycle.

However, it takes time and patience to achieve this. If you don’t mind going through the hit and trial method, this is a useful product for you.

From personal experience having purchased the Silk’N Hair Removal device from Home Skinovations, I can tell you that these machines will not give you permanent results.

I will say that it appears the Silk’N slowed growth and maybe even thinned a bit of the hair between shavings, but after using for almost a year there was still growth.

I documented the areas of use, the number of bulbs and the overall cost of this experiment – you can see it at the following link – See Product

To your last question, ie side effects, there were none. My take – if you are looking for a thinning or to slow hair growth between shavings, the Silk’n may be for you.

If you are looking for a more permanent solution, then the laser might be better. Of course the only truly permanent solution is electrolysis.

Do I have to shave before getting laser hair removal on my bikini area?

Yes, you do have to shave the bikini area prior to laser hair removal. No sane person would operate a laser on someone that still hadn’t removed their hair, if they did, I would run for the hills, unless I wanted to burn my skin, have permanent scarring & hypo/hyperpigmentation!

Over the years, I’ve had my legs and underarms lasered, and now I’m halfway through the bikini area, so I can give you the appropriate advice.

Before I embarked on laser hair removal, I thought it prudent to understand the basics of how it works.

You cannot pluck or wax, as the hairs will be removed from the follicle, and there won’t be a target to absorb the laser’s energy, and therefore the hair follicle won’t be destroyed.

If you don’t remove hairs in preparation, then the hair above the surface of the skin would absorb the laser’s energy which would result in burning the skin and creating changes in the pigmentation of the skin.

Shaving doesn’t remove the hair from the follicle entirely, so the laser will still have a target. That’s what we want.

Don’t be terrified of using a blade, yes, it’s a very delicate area, but follow this advice:

  1. Don’t purchase cheap disposable razors. I opted for Gillette Sensitive razor for women.
  2. I shave the area the night before the treatment. In the shower, I don’t shave straight away, I wait and allow my skin to get wet making it easier to shave after.
  3. Use a shaving gel. I opt for Gillette sensitive skin. For women, it’s best to use non-fragranced products around the intimate area, to avoid disturbing the PH balance.
  4. Shave with the grain to avoid ingrown hairs. You don’t need to apply too much pressure if you’ve prepped the skin beforehand.
  5. When you follow this technique, the likelihood of cuts is minimal.
  6. The alternative is to use a depilatory cream specifically for the bikini area. Personally, I hate using these chemical creams, not great for sensitive skin.

On the appointment what I found was that the nurse would have disposable razors, and if there were any stray hairs, she would remove them.

The hair around the bikini area is coarser than the rest of the body, so the first few treatments may feel a bit uncomfortable, but the further along you are, the less you’ll feel it.

Afterward, you might feel a bit itchy for a day or two. I use pure aloe vera gel (Stearex & Banana Boat are good) for a week after treatment. It’s anti-bacterial and soothes/cools the skin.

In terms of expectations, I started to notice fewer hairs growing back after treatment three and above, it will vary amongst individuals.

I’d recommend 6 treatments minimum, some may need between 6–8 to achieve a satisfactory level of hair reduction.

Personally, I would highly recommend laser hair removal for permanent hair reduction, you’ll never want to go back to shaving or waxing again!

Make sure you have a patch test a week prior to commencing treatment, and ensure the person has a good level of experience in the area and is reputable.

Good luck,
