Brazilian vs Bikini Laser Hair Removal - Which one is right for you?
It seems that, no matter how often we get a wax in Singapore or when we last shaved, the area never quite has a smooth, flawless appearance. Whether razor burn, ingrown hairs, or stubble growing back from the morning’s shave cause the flaws, they tend to be most noticeable at the least convenient times. Everything appears decent enough in the mirror at home, but the sunlight on the beach always reveals the spots we missed or forgot altogether. It’s because of this that many women become interested in laser hair removal, and more often than not, they start with the pubic region.

This ultimately leads to the big question: Brazilian hair removal or bikini laser hair removal? To figure out which option is better for you, Wellaholic has provided an overview of each option below. Read out to find out more!
What’s the Difference Between Brazilian and Bikini Laser Hair Removal?
ifference Between Brazilian and Bikini Hair Removal
Many women do not know the difference between a bikini line treatment and a Brazilian. The two are similar, so it understandingly causes a bit of confusion. Since the subject can be embarrassing to discuss, women tend to research it beforehand instead of asking their laser hair removal technician what the difference is.
The Bikini Line
The area that lies outside of the panty line is considered the bikini line. A bikini line laser hair removal treatment typically covers up to three inches beyond this line, ensuring a flawless look in panties or a bikini. It often also addresses some areas that underwear covers, such as the sides of the labia and top of the pubic region, but this is up to the client.
A Brazilian laser hair removal treatment includes more area than a bikini treatment because it includes the labia and perianal areas as well. This option leaves women completely bare, but often those who choose Brazilian treatments opt to keep some hair in the pubic region, such as a landing strip. Either option can be customised to fit what you’re looking for.
How Much Maintenance Do You Want to Avoid?
Full Bikini Laser Hair Removal vs Brazilian
All women know the bikini zone is one of the most troubling hair removal areas because most hair removal methods seem to cause more problems than they solve. Laser hair removal on the bikini line will create a smooth, flawless appearance and prevent stubble from growing back and the irritation that other hair removal methods cause.
Those who choose this option will still need to maintain the area, however. It will require less maintenance than before but more than if you chose the Brazilian hair removal option, which will permanently eliminate all hair follicles in the pubic region
What Is Your Objective?
Are you looking to simply reduce the amount of ingrown hairs on your bikini line and get rid of razor burn? Are you looking to shave less often and be sure you didn’t miss a spot while lying on the beach? Then laser hair removal treatments in the bikini area might be the best option for you.
Are you looking to never have to worry about shaving again and save hundreds of dollars a year on other hair removal methods? Are you looking to permanently eliminate ingrown hairs, razor burn, sweating, chafing, and other irritations? Are you looking to have flawless skin not only in a swimsuit but in the nude as well? Then Brazilian laser hair removal treatments might be right for you.
Full Brazilian versus Regular Brazilian?
While a Brazilian can be a variety of different hair removal styles that remove almost all pubic hair from the pubic region, a full Brazilian removes it all, leaving no hair whatsoever. Choose to leave a neat strip, triangle, or no hair whatsoever -- it's completely your choice! Here are a few popular styles below:
Why Brazilian Hair removal?
Wellaholic's SHR permanent hair removal takes the process to a whole new level. Once the hair has been removed it's as if there was never any body hair to begin with. These laser hair removal or laser treatment procedures are our most popular because many women love the idea of not having to worry about bikini bumps and ingrown hairs, and just love that fresh clean feeling every single day of the year. Not having to waste time every morning or repeatedly paying for temporary solutions like waxing (at places such as Strip Singapore or Sugared) are key reasons why Brazilian laser hair removal has become very popular at Wellaholic.
Aftercare for Hair Removal
Typically, the process of laser hair removal can take around six months with appointments every four to six weeks. At Wellaholic, we advocate doing it every 28 days (approximately) to time it with the hair growth cycle. It is not unusual to see some results from the beginning. It takes 10 to 14 days for hair to start falling out. Still, it takes more sessions to have hair totally eliminated. Exfoliating in the shower with a sugar scrub will help speed along the process.
