It's been a brutal winter for us New Yorkers, and we can bet you’re breaking out your summer gear and looking forward to all that the warmer weather offers.
However, not even the trendiest swimsuit can stand against an unsightly, bristly bikini line. But the fuzz "down there" is some of the most stubborn stubble you'll find.
So what are you to do with summer only a few months away? You call in the professionals at Laser Bar and Spa.
Here, we give you the lowdown on Brazilian laser hair removal, along with some expert insight on when you should start scheduling your appointments.
First things first: Let's talk about the basics of Brazilian laser hair removal.
Brazilian laser hair removal takes the waxing methods you know and adds a touch of modern
technology to maximize results.
Born from the thong bathing suit craze that hit Brazilian beaches in the 1970s, Brazilian hair removal has been one of the most requested services since it came to the US in the 1980s.
Brazilian hair removal involves removing all the hair from your pubic area, including the labia and buttocks. It's a great choice if you want to feel smooth and hairless in your most intimate areas (and be able to rock a bikini worry-free).
During your appointment, we use a laser machine that emits powerful light, penetrating your skin to disrupt the hair growth process where it starts: in the root. This disruption effectively eliminates the existing hair and keeps it from coming back.
The light only impacts your hair, so the rest of your skin is left virtually untouched.
It may sound bizarre to start pointing lasers at your nether region, but it's completely safe, and we take careful steps to keep you comfortable the entire time. In fact, most treatments only take about 10 minutes.
You feel a warming sensation or the feeling of someone snapping a rubber band on your skin, but otherwise, you shouldn't feel much discomfort — dare we say, less pain than traditional waxing methods.
After the treatment, we apply a gentle cooling gel to soothe your skin. You may notice some redness and tenderness at the treatment site, but that shouldn't last long. We recommend that you stay out of the sun, avoid strenuous exercises, and turn down the temp in the shower as your skin recovers.

Women love Brazilian hair removal because it gets rid of all the hair once and for all, but there are a few things to know before you get started, especially when it comes to timing.
Around here, we say that timing is everything. You want to make sure you schedule your laser hair removal appointments with enough time before summer so that you're hair-free and fully healed by beach time.
We recommend planning six to eight sessions and scheduling your first appointment at least six months before summer. This ensures you have enough time to complete all your sessions and allow for any touch-ups you want or need.
It's important to note that everyone's hair growth cycle is different, and you may require more or fewer sessions than others. It's best to consult with one of our experts to determine the best timeline for your specific needs.
In the end, there's no right or wrong time to come in for hair removal. However, starting early and planning your appointments is best if you want to be hair-free by summer.
