Ways to Safely Trim Your Bikini Line

We all have different preferences — down there. Some of us enjoy going au natural, while others want to keep their pubic hair groomed or even non-existent. There’s no wrong way to go about it —
it all depends on what makes YOU comfortable. But if you are one of those people who does want to keep their pubic hair trimmed, there are several ways you can do that.

Here are a few easy ways to manage your bikini line:

Shaving: You can always go the shaving route when it comes to bikini hair removal but compared to waxing or laser treatment, the results are only short-lived. If you do decide to shave, you’ll want to make sure that you have a new and sharp razor. A dull razor can cause cuts or irritation, and a dirty razor can cause bacteria to creep in.

Creams: If you’re going the most cost-effective approach (besides razors), then hair removal creams are the way to go. These creams feature chemicals that break down the hair over a matter of minutes. However, these creams are oftentimes messy, smelly, and only offer short-term removal of your body hair.

Waxing: The brutal yet effective art of waxing has been a popular pastime for decades now. The most iconic wax—the Brazilian wax—was invented at a salon owned by 7 Brazilian sisters in New York in the 1990s. There are several different ways you can clear the hair down there. The aforementioned Brazilian/Hollywood wax—one of the most popular waxes—is when every ounce of hair is ripped from your body, including the top and bottom of your private region. If going Barbie isn’t your thing, there are several other options to choose from, including the French bikini—a.k.a. the “landing strip”—which leaves hair on the bottom and a little on top, and the regular bikini, which is a general trimming of your bikini line. Oh, and you can also get creative and request that your remaining pubic hair is made into the shape of a heart, star, or moon. Whatever you decide, it’s important that you seek a qualified and trained professional. Because waxing causes tiny tears in your skin, it’s easy for bacteria to enter. You’ll want to ensure that you go to a clinic that practices proper hygiene and safety. If you decide to wax yourself, you’ll want to make sure you properly prep your skin and use the right tools to avoid hurting yourself or damaging your skin.

Laser: A less painful way to trim your pubic hair is laser treatment. Laser hair removal works by emitting a light that effectively kills the hair follicle. This treatment is quick and the results are long-lasting. However, you’ll typically have to receive multiple treatments for optimal results. As for pain, laser treatment is described as feeling like several tiny rubber bands snapping you, which for some people can be uncomfortable. Typically your technician will numb the area first. Like waxing, you can choose to have some or all of your pubic hair removed. Since laser treatment deals with heat that touches your skin, you’ll want to make sure you go to a reputable facility using the latest technology, like the award-winning Soprano laser which is built on clinically proven technology.
