Though it seems far away, bathing suit season will be upon us before we know it – and, as we all know, with bathing suit season comes constant shaving, waxing, and other hair removal methods for our bikini area.
Recently, more and more women and men are striving to be completely hair-free on their bikini line, extended bikini, and complete bikini area (Brazilian). Bikini line hair removal includes all the hair along the underwear line, while the extended bikini removes all hair along with underwear line, the frontal portion of bikini area and also leaves a patch of hair (wherever preferred). On the other hand, full Brazilian hair removal is complete removal of the entire bikini area (along underwear line, front and below bikini area) and also removes the unwanted hair in the hard-to-reach backside area.
At SkinLaze Laser Skin Spa, Syracuse and Central New York’s trusted leader in laser hair removal, we offer bikini line, extended bikini, and full Brazilian laser hair removal, as it is becoming one of our most popular hair removal procedures. With our advanced ExpressLaze Laser Hair Removal System, exclusively created by Dr. Doug Halliday, our experienced medical aestheticians will provide you with safe and effective results. SkinLaze uses the highest quality, FDA-approved lasers with multiple wavelengths customized for every patient’s individual skin type, hair color, and desired area.

Many common bikini area hair removal methods, like shaving, waxing, and depilatories, are painful, irritating, and not long-lasting. These methods can often do more harm than good around your bikini area. For example, shaving causes the pubic hair follicles to be raised and “micro-trauma” to the skin, increasing the chances of nicks and cuts while shaving. Also, according to the Journal of Urology, “the second most common reason that people visit the emergency room from genital injuries comes from mishandling razors, scissors and clippers to remove unwanted body hair.”*
Brazilian waxing can also be quite risky and unsanitary, as it increases your risk for infections, in-grown hairs, burning, and chronic scarring. According to the founder of Art of Dermatology, Dr. Jessica Krant states “pulling a hair out by its roots means a new, thin and weak baby hair will start growing in its place, which naturally has less strength and thickness toward the tip to find its way out of the surface in a straight shot. It can often get caught and get stuck under the surface, leading to an irritated bump that can become infected and long-lasting.”*
