If there’s one thing we know about modern femininity, it’s that there’s no “right” or “wrong” way to be a woman. Have long hair or short hair, wear makeup or don’t, and dress however you want – ultimately, it’s totally up to you.
But when it comes down to keeping body hair in check, most women would agree that shaving or waxing is the bane of their existence. And if we’re talking about maintaining a smooth bikini area? Reactions are likely to range anywhere from “Ouch” to exasperated eye rolls. This highly sensitive area can serve up more than its fair share of hair removal challenges, making it even more of a chore to deal with hair growth.
We’re going to take a quick dive into whether or not most women are still getting rid of bikini area body hair (hint: they are), as well as the best way to get a smooth bikini line that lasts.
Are Women Still Removing Hair “Down There”?
For many women, hair removal in the bikini area is somewhat of a taboo topic. But at Focal Point Salon & Spa, we’re all about tackling tricky issues to help women (and men) get their biggest questions answered. So, if you don’t have anybody else to ask about body hair in your bikini area, let us be your hair-free fairy godmother!
First and foremost, let’s make sure we’re all on the same page when we’re talking about the “bikini line” zone. What is the bikini line? Originally, this term referred to just the hair and skin visible near the upper thighs when you were wearing a bikini. But now, with bikinis getting smaller and trends changing, some people are talking about that whole area when they say bikini line.
Regardless of how you define your bikini line, removing hair in that area is entirely your choice. However, the majority of women opt for a smooth, hair-free look, ensuring that there’s no stubble or unsightly stragglers when they’re wearing a barely-there bikini.
That brings us to the next most common question: What’s the best way to remove hair in the bikini line?
Time to Clean Up that Bikini Line with Laser Hair Removal
Do you dread dealing with removing the hair in your bikini zone? You definitely aren’t alone.
Shaving and waxing are two common ways to deal with bikini area hair, but they present their problems:
- Ingrown hairs
- Irritated, itchy skin
- Fast hair regrowth
- The constant expense of razors, shaving cream, or waxing supplies/sessions
If you’re still tackling unwanted hair with a razor or wax strip, it’s time to update your approach and make hair removal easier, more effective, and, best of all, permanent.
With laser hair removal, you can finally be free from the frustration of bikini line maintenance. When performed by an experienced professional with the proper training and advanced equipment, the treatment can help you get rid of virtually every last annoying hair. And when correctly performed, the procedure can be your best beauty secret for soft, smooth skin forever.

- 1 Week Before: Begin avoiding certain medications and topicals (you will receive a full list during consultation).

FAQs about Laser Hair Removal for Women
How many sessions will I need?
The number of sessions will vary depending upon various factors, but you can get an estimate (based on your goals) at your consultation. Typically most guests see a big change on the 1st treatment and each time they get less growth. Focal Point creates the best package to fit your needs and budget.
Does laser hair removal hurt?
Focal Point’s advanced technology allows for a comfortable treatment and has a special cooling tip that significantly reduces any discomfort.
How does laser hair removal work?
The laser targets each individual hair follicle, destroying the hair at the root so it can no longer grow back.
Is laser hair removal permanent?
You might notice a few individual hairs pop up from time to time, but they will often be much lighter than your old hair. Most people are free to go without shaving or waxing for the long-term.
