Does Hair Removal work on the Pubic or Private Area?

Introduction to Why People Does Hair Removal 

According to Wikipedia, it is estimated that about 1/4 groomers have had at least one lifetime injury due to pubic hair grooming. Yet, the grooming of the pubic hair area is a key priority for women. For instance, in the 2013 survey by, 31.5 percent of women who reported grooming their pubic hair did so because they believed it would make their genitals more attractive. Also, around 21.1 percent of women reported that their pubic grooming was related to partner preference. Many women prefer pubic hair removal for their private regions and have made it a part of their routine for more than one reason. Most women are uncomfortable with hair in their pubic area. It restricts them from wearing swimsuits. Also, things can get messy during the menstrual cycle, which is why they prefer to opt for a vaginal hair removal cream or waxing the vagina. 

Of course, no one is obligated to remove their pubic hair (or any other body hair), but if it’s part of your normal routine that makes you feel great, we’re not going to tell you to stop. In this article, we are going to share on how to remove pubic hair, and also tackle the key question: does hair removal work on the pubic or private area? 

Hair Removal Using Laser Hair Removal (or IPL, SHR and similar technologies)

​Hair removal works on all areas of the body that has unwanted hair including the face, chest, abdomen, pubic area, (bikini and Brazillian areas), as well as legs, arms, hands and feet. 

Laser hair removal is another longer-term hair removal option. Like electrolysis, this treatment targets the hair follicle. It works by damaging the follicle with high-heat lasers to stop new hair from growing. 

Since hair follicles grow and regrow in a cyclical fashion, following the hair growth cycle, all hair removal technologies require multiple sessions to ensure maximum effectiveness. Typically, patients will need to have 8 to 12 hair removal treatments to achieve their goals. Notwithstanding, depending on the hair texture and colour and the patient’s skin type several more session at times may be required. 

SHR or Super Hair Removal

IPL or Intense Pulse Light Hair Removal

IPL short for Intense Pulsed Light is used in slowing or putting an end to hair growth, and can be applied in most parts of the body, from the underarms and legs to the bikini line. Short wavelengths of light are emitted onto targeted areas of the skin to remove growing cells, essentially discouraging new hair growth over time. 

IPL generally requires more treatments in order to remove hair permanently. On the other hand, it can be cheaper overall than laser treatments. Most IPL hair removal treatments can give you some discomfort and even pain, due to the generally higher temperatures (up to 70 degrees). 

Intense pulsed light (IPL) is also a technology used by cosmetic and medical practitioners to perform various skin treatments for aesthetic and therapeutic purposes, including hair removal photo-rejuvenation (e.g. the treatment of skin pigmentation , sun damage, and thread veins) as well as to alleviate dermatologic diseases such as acne. 

IPL generally requires more treatments in order to remove hair permanently.

SHR or Super Hair Removal 

​SHR or Super Hair Removal is a relatively newer technology which uses gentler pulses of energy but at a higher frequency. This laser hair removal technology allows the skin to be heated gently, but with the rapid pulses, the energy is then accumulated by the skin.

With SHR technology one does not need single pulses with high energy. The skin is targeted between six to ten times per second using low energy but with high frequency. This procedure is referred to as the so-called in-Motion methodology, because the hand piece is moved over the treated area in sliding movements. (Unlike this, the IPL technology is called stamp technology.) Using the SHR technology the skin is heated gently through the melanin and the stem cells with low energy (up to 48 degrees) but with high frequency. In that way even lighter and finer hair can be treated and removed permanently in a better way. 

With SHR technology the hair removal methodology that involves the hair pigment uses only 50 per cent of the energy for permanent hair removal. The remaining 50 per cent is absorbed into the stem cells responsible for hair production through the skin during treatment with SHR technology. (source:

Because of the gradual accumulation of the energy into the skin, there is less trauma and irritation on the skin – making it ideal and suitable for everyone, regardless of skin tone and even for customers with sensitive skin. In fact, SHR is often considered to be one of the best laser hair removal treatments in Singapore given the various technologies. SHR hair removal is very ideal for Brazilian Hair Removal as it is more gentle on the skin. 


​Forget waxing and shaving and think laser. If you’ve been thinking about getting a Brazilian, consider Brazilian Laser Hair Removal over brazilian waxing or shaving for a more permanent solution to remove pubic hair. Your skin protects your body from harm and deserves to be well-cared for. This means keeping hot waxes and rusty razors out of the picture. You’ll get long lasting results without the mess and save time without the weight of unwanted hair with our gentle hair removal. 

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. 

While laser hair removal can work on any body part you wish to remove hair from, it is especially effective on the bikini, lip, chin, and underarm areas. 

In conclusion, no hair removal treatment can guarantee a hundred percent hair removal permanently. It takes more than one session to show definite and prominent results. So it should be noted that the treatment plan that would consider several sessions over the weeks must be completed to get the desired results. Our biological factors that depend on and changes from person to a person plays a crucial role in the re-growth process. So the clients must not expect and compare their results with someone else.
