Intimate hair removal: what is the best way to remove hair from sensitive areas?

It’s no secret that incorrect hair removal can lead to shaving cuts, ingrown hair, and razor burn. And while these are all very common issues related to body hair removal, there are plenty of ways to help avoid them. By understanding the ins and outs of hair removal for sensitive areas, you can reduce the likelihood of experiencing these stubborn nuisances. Allow us to walk you through how to remove hair from sensitive areas without pain. Our tips for best hair removal for sensitive areas can help you to enjoy a clean, hair-free bikini line without irritation. Let’s get started!

Hair removal for sensitive areas


When it comes to learning the best hair removal for sensitive areas, there are a few tips and methods that are particularly effective to achieve a hairless bikini line. Depending on what results you are looking for, you may opt for a simple trimming or for using IPL on the bikini area. Here are the different methods that you can choose from for sensitive areas of the body:
Trimming

1.       Trimming

 

One of the best and safest ways you can remove hair from sensitive areas without pain is trimming. As its name suggests, this technique trims your hair to prevent it from becoming unruly. While trimming isn’t meant to remove every strand of hair, it is a great option if you’re looking for bikini line hair maintenance without the risk of cutting your skin.
 

If you’re interested in trimming your bikini area, consider the Philips BikiniGenie for a safe and easy way to maintain a beautiful bikini line. This device offers a click-on comb and shaving head so that you can trim, shave, and style to your preference.

2. Waxing

Waxing


If you’re interested in getting more to the root of things, consider a longer-term hair removal solution like waxing or sugaring. This is a common method for hair removal for sensitive areas, as the wax strip swiftly pulls the hair up from the root to create longer-lasting, smoother results. Waxing is a very common hair removal method for the bikini area and can easily be done right at home.
 

Ensure that your hair is long enough before you begin waxing so that you can get rid of each hair. Exfoliate before you begin and let the warm wax and strips work their magic in one quick pull. Be sure to use a cool compress and moisturizer once you are done to reduce any irritation or redness.

3. Epilation

Epilation


Like waxing, epilation is a longer-term hair removal technique that works by extracting the hair from the root. If you’re interested in epilating your sensitive areas, ensure that you have a good quality epilator on hand to give you the results you want.
 

The Philips Satinelle Prestige Wet & Dry epilator, for example, uses unique ceramic discs that firmly grip fine and short hairs to give you smoother results. You can even use this epilator in the shower to help open your pores and make the process less irritating on the skin.
 

Although epilating may feel a bit uncomfortable at first, it will get easier over time and will provide you with hair-free skin for longer. Your hair may also start to grow back finer and lighter after frequent use. 

4. IPL


The best way to remove hair from sensitive areas without risking any cuts or skin irritation is IPL hair removal. IPL, or intense pulsed light, works by emitting pulses of light that target and kill the hair follicle. This prevents the follicle from growing new hair, making IPL an even longer-term hair removal solution.

 

IPL

If you’re interested in using IPL on the bikini area, you’ll first need a reliable IPL device. The Philips Lumea IPL [GHL1] includes four intelligent, curved attachments that adapt treatment programs for the area you wish to remove hair from, including the bikini line. Enjoy up to 92% hair reduction in just three treatments* and six months of hair-free smooth skin after 12 treatments.**
