Brazilian Laser Hair Removal
Hair that grows in the private area is the most difficult to remove. The fuzz is hard to see and reach when shaving or waxing. Also, it can be unsafe to use hair removal products (eg. creams, razors, wax) on the delicate areas. However, sometimes it’s necessary to remove or trim the hair on the private area to feel confident on the beach or in the summer.
Though there are options to keep the private areas hair-free, methods like shaving or waxing can be too inconvenient. For instance, frequent shaving may damage the skin or the genitals, which could lead to more serious problems. On the other hand, waxing can be extremely painful, and costly in the long run. Fortunately, advanced technologies allow us to get rid of unwanted hairs for good. Bikini laser hair removal can now be used to permanently eliminate hairs in the private area. One of the most popular cutting-edge treatments today is the brazilian laser hair removal.
Brazilian laser hair removal?
There are different types of laser hair removal performed in the private area. One of the most prominent is the Brazilian. For this laser procedure, the client can decide how her treatment sessions will be done, and which areas it will be performed. Typically, patients who undergo a course of laser hair removal on the brazilian prefer to leave a small portion of hair on the top area of the bikini. Styles vary for the Brazilian laser hair removal. Thus to make sure that the patient’s aesthetic goal is followed, laser practitioners highly suggest to shave the area 24 hours before their treatment sessions.
Why brazilian laser hair removal is better than other methods?
Brazilian laser hair removal became popular due to its impressive outcome. The treatment can be tailored after the patient’s needs, meaning, satisfaction is typically met. This treatment also saves time and money in the long run because hair is removed for good. Most importantly, laser hair removal promotes advanced skin care, as cuts or bumps from shaving or waxing will be avoided.
What you need to consider before undergoing brazilian laser hair removal treatment?
Brazilian laser hair removal surely is the best way to have a smooth, hairfree skin and permanent hair reduction in the private area for all hair colours and any skin type. However, because it’s based on the client’s aesthetic goals, communication between the laser professional and the client must be clear. To ensure permanent hair reduction, it’s advised that clients must first shave the body hair they want to be hair-free prior to the treatment. Shaving the skin before undergoing brazilian laser hair removal doesn’t only assure the desired style will be achieved, it also keeps the skin safe. Patients are advised to shave the area one week, three days, and go over the area again one day before the removal consultation.
Laser Hair Removal Underarms
The underarm is a popular treatment area of choice for laser hair removal. Simply because the armpits are frequently exposed, so patients want to keep the area hair-free. It’s common with first time patients to try laser hair removal on their underarms to see if it works great on them. If you’re thinking about laser hair removal underarms, here’s what you need to know.
Havana Skin Clinic’s Laser Hair Removal Device
Havana Skin Clinic is equipped with a cutting-edge technology that can effectively remove hair permanently after a course of treatments. Compared to older devices, the technology used at the Havana Skin Clinic delivers procedures that are a lot less painful. Only a few patients experience a bit of pinching sensation when undergoing treatments. Experiences during the procedure done on the underarm vary from patient to patient. Some people are more sensitive, while others barely feel anything. Nonetheless, laser hair removal performed on the underarm is quick and painless because the clinic uses a high-end device that’s especially developed to reduce pain, and perform faster procedures.
Compared to waxing and shaving.
Hair grows fast after shaving the underarm. Thus, you have to shave regularly and frequently to keep the underarm hair-free. However, continuous shaving isn’t good for the skin. It may damage the armpits, causing bumps and ingrown hair. Shaving also leaves an unsightly shadow on the underarm, making it look darker. On the other hand, waxing the underarm can be inconvenient. Undergoing wax treatments require patients to grow their underarm hair at a particular length, thus limiting them to hide their armpits until it’s free of hair. With laser hair removal, patients can shave the armpit in between treatments, meaning they can keep the underarm clean any time they desire.
What to expect?
Patients have to undergo a course of laser treatments until hair in the underarm are finally removed. In some cases, changes can already be seen after one treatment, where hair becomes thinner and grows slower. Meaning, patients can reduce the frequency of shaving to once a week after a single treatment. However, to permanently remove hair, multiple treatments must be performed, which typically last for a year. After completing the course, patients will no longer need to shave or wax the area, which means they will be able to save a lot of time and money.

Is laser hair removal worth it?
For people who feel bothered with unwanted hair, you have found your answer. This procedure will help you save a lot of time and effort from continuous shaving, or waxing. Laser hair removal is also a way to remove hair without damaging the skin. If you need more reasons to convince you that this treatment is worth your time and money, here’s what you need to know:
How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?
As time goes, technologies become better and more advanced. Today’s devices work using a particular wavelength of light that produces heat. The heat energy targets the pigment of the hair, and then warms the hair shaft to a temperature that can kill it. For every session, the hairs will become thinner and thinner, until it results in permanent hair loss. The course of treatment will be considered final when 90 percent of hair has been eliminated. It will take about 6 sessions to see the final results of the procedure. However, consultation prior the treatment is still recommended for every patient to ensure that it’s the right treatment for their concern.
If you want to save time
People who are living a busy life would benefit from visiting Havana Skin Clinic. This procedure will help them save time from continuous shaving or waxing; and because the course of treatment results in permanent hair loss, you will no longer need to spend minutes of your day just removing unwanted hair. You will spare a lot of time when going to wax salons, because you will no longer need it. Within just about a year of laser hair removal, you may achieve 90 percent of your hair removed permanently.
If you want to save energy
Everyday shaving or regular appointments in wax salons demand a ton of energy. With laser hair removal, you will get to use your energy to more important things. You will become more productive for the day, as you will no longer need to spend about 30 minutes shaving your unwanted hair. Just imagine how much energy you can save after completing your laser hair treatment.
The new LightSheer DUET by Lumenis is the Gold Standard in laser hair removal.
The DUET system offers several innovative improvements, for laser treatment, over previous laser hair removal systems. Vacuum assisted technology combined with a dramatic increase in the laser spot size enables a greater depth of penetration, and improved absorption of energy at the hair follicle. These improvements mean the treatment times are reduced by 75% in many cases, for instance, good laser clinics, can treat backs and legs comfortably without the need for gels or numbing creams. The larger spot size also means that large areas, like legs and underarms, are completed quicker.
The LightSheer DUET system is a diode laser (not IPL – intense pulsed light) and is a quick and pain free way to permanently remove unwanted hair from your legs (lower legs and upper legs), back, face, bikini (bikini line, standard bikini, brazilian bikini, hollywood bikini) and other areas of your body where unwanted hair is a problem.
Havana Skin Clinic is pleased to be one of the two providers in Dublin of the LightSheer DUET Laser Technology. The only other laser clinics using this advanced system is the Hermitage Medical Clinic.
How does the Alma Soprano XL compare to the LightSheer Duet?
The Soprano and the LightSheer are both medical grade lasers. The Soprano uses low laser power (which has questionable effectiveness) while the laser operator is constantly moving the handpiece over the skin. Complete coverage is hard to obtain as well. The Soprano XL technology is 2 years older vs the Lightsheer Duet. The LightSheer Laser (prior to the addition of the Duet technology) has been the gold standard for Laser Hair Removal since 1998. The Duet is a quantum leap forward, for laser technology, in terms of comfort and speed while maintaining the great results that LightSheer has produce for over 14 years.
If you want to save money and your skin
Though initially, you will need to spend money for for your treatments in Havana Skin Clinic, every cent spent for this treatment is valued. Instead buying of hair removal products endlessly, or regularly attending your painful hot wax treatments, consider going the laser route and you will get to save the money when you compare the hair removal price to your cost for the use for these never-ending hair removal methods. Over time, you will get to save a bunch of cash on laser hair prices, as you will no longer need to spend on waxing, numbing creams or razors to be hair-free. Furthermore, laser hair removal doesn’t result in ingrown hair, bumps, or cuts and achieve smooth skin on bikini line and underarms or any other area. You will have smooth, healthy and hair free skin without dishing out cash, or your wasting time and effort.
“Compared to waxing, it’s a walk in the park..”
Top Irish Beauty & Make -Up blogger, Bláthnaid Murphy, dropped by Havana Skin Clinic, Dundrum to start her journey of being hairless. She has become tired of the constant shaving and waxing and has made the decision to remove her hair permanently. Check it out to see how she got on.
Laser Hair Removal Review (Lip / Chin / Forearms)
Many women struggle with the dark hair growing on their lip, chin and forearms. One of those women is Mary Olivierre. For years, she was waxing her lip, chin and arms to keep it smooth and hair-free. For Mary, waxing can be too much painful, so she decided to try laser hair removal. Here’s her laser hair removal review.
Why did Mary consider a hair removal clinic?
Mary has experienced teasing from other people due to the hair growth in different parts of her body. She used to have a moustache, hairy arms and legs, the black hairs bothered her for years. To keep her skin hair-free, she used to hot wax the areas to get smooth skin. However, for Mary, waxing is not the best method for hair removal. It’s not convenient, and it can be extremely painful. Thus, she considered trying laser hair removal to remove the fuzz on her chin, lips and arms.
Laser hair removal on the lip, chin and forearms
The lip can be a sensitive area to treat when getting laser. Discomfort may be felt when treating this part of the face. The pain level is bearable, though, depending on the amount of hair, type of hair and pain tolerance of the client. On the other hand, the chin and forearms caused minimal to zero discomfort.
Laser hair removal is the safest and most efficient way to eliminate unwanted hair on the lip, chin and arms. Unlike shaving or waxing, this method can provide permanent results, and won’t harm the skin. Hair on the chin may grow in patches, or sporadically, which may appear unsightly. When using laser to remove hair in the areas, a lower amount of energy is needed because of the thickness of the hair.
Laser hair removal uses a particular wavelength of light to create heat, which destroys the stem cells of an active hair follicle. Meaning, the heat can be easily absorbed by the hair on the areas, eventually killing the hair. The number of sessions of laser hairdepends on every patient because the hair grows differently for each individual. Thus, consultation is necessary prior to the treatment. The Havana Skin Clinic offers free consultation for people who are interested in laser hair removal.
What does Mary think about laser hair removal?
Mary says she was very happy with the treatment. The procedure was fast, and almost painless. Most importantly, she will never have to shave or wax her skin again. Mary says she recommends the treatment to everybody who also struggles due to unwanted hair. She adds, she’s looking forward to undergoing more treatments to finally get rid of hairs on the area.
What are the facts about laser hair removal?
Hair can be stubborn. Many products claim to be the most effective hair remover, but often fail to live up to expectations. But now, laser hair removal for is very quick and easy. It only takes from 5 minutes for lip to 20 minutes for full back. Our laser leg hair treatments are hygienic, quick and after your course of six advanced treatments, you will be virtually hair free! Plus, ingrown hairs will disappear and not return.
How to get rid of unwanted hair?
For the best hair removal results, you will need between 6-8 sessions, and this will depend on hair type. Treatments are performed between 5 to 12 weeks until the follicle becomes sterile. Following the successful completion of your treatments, you may need one or two treatments per year to maintain the results.
What results can I expect after laser hair removal?
Occasionally, some clients have a few hairs left following the completion of the treatment course, but they are almost invisible. Laser hair removal works using Photothermolysis, or converting light energy into heat, which harms the hair follicle and makes laser the best of all the hair removers available today.

Laser hair removal can be used on almost all areas on the face or body on both men and women.
