Bikini Waxing or Brazilian Hair Removal, Which Is Better?

The Bikini/Brazilian Hair Removal Guide

Many heard of Bikini wax or Brazilian wax, but do you know exactly what they do?
In Singapore, or Tampines, we have to dress down in the hot and humid weather; sleeveless tank tops are the norm for living near the equator. Underarm hair is the most unwanted; even ladies of the 1960s and the 1970s are removing them by plucking, which unfortunately makes the underarm skin sag over time.
A close second will be pubic hair removal, which started to take off in the 90s. Those who opt to stay au natural still will choose Bikini wax; those who want it all off will go for the Brazilian wax. The reason is probably like sexy lingerie; nobody sees it except the wearer, but it sure makes one “feel pretty from the inside”.
A clean bare down there also makes intimate moments more relaxed and confident, reducing the chances of odour. So it is no wonder that Bikini Hair Removal is a popular hygiene service for both genders.

After having Bikini or Brazilian Hair Removal, the trip to Bali and Phuket beaches is much more fashionable, and the feeling of smooth, silky skin will make your heart dance!
Do you know Brazilian Hair Removal history and which techniques give the best results?

The History of Brazilian Hair Removal:

As the name suggests, the trend of Brazilian hair removal started in Brazil on the beaches of Rio de Janeiro. Then, in the 1970s, thong bathing suits came into fashion in Brazil, and women started feeling ashamed about their pubic hair. 

Soon, this trend became famous in the USA when seven Brazilian sisters opened a studio in New York to offer Brazilian wax service. After that, Brazilian Hair Removal became an essential service worldwide, and salons started offering this service to their clients. 

Interesting Fact: One interesting fact about Bikini wax or Brazilian Hair Removal is that it is not restricted to women only. Many Men also visit the salon to avail of this service and call it “Manzilian”. It makes sense because men also need grooming, and it is pretty hard to eliminate pubic hair from intimate areas for everyone. 

Techniques Used For Brazilian Hair Removal:

Different methods are available for Brazilian & Bikini Hair Removal. The quickest option is shaving, but it has a lot of disadvantages. After shaving, your hair is back in just a few days, and you risk having cuts or shave bumps because you cannot see down there. The most preferred options for this unwanted private hair are waxing, laser hair removal, and the latest technology of OPT Hair Removal.

Brazilian & Bikini Wax:

Brazilian wax is a convenient way to keep your intimate parts free from pubic hair for at least 2-3 weeks. Although this method removes hair from the roots by applying a warm wax paste to the bikini area, everyone feels nervous for the first time. You may feel discomfort during the process, but the results will make you forget it. 

Due to its advantages, it has become the second most popular service after armpit waxing. You can easily have an appointment for a Brazilian /Bikini wax in Singapore, as the number of waxing bars and salons is spouting fast. But you will have to visit the salon monthly to keep your bikini area free from hair.

Brazilian & Bikini Laser Hair Removal:

Brazilian Hair Removal through laser is ideal if you permanently want to get rid of your pubic hair. It’s one of the most long-lasting options for hair removal, but you will have to spend a fortune to get it from aesthetic doctors in Singapore. 

The laser destroys the hair follicle with the help of light energy and halts the growth of the hair. For Brazilian Laser Hair Removal, you need to book an appointment with the clinic that will assess your hair and then plan your sessions. For permanent hair removal, you must go through at least eight or more sessions, depending on your regrowth. However, most aesthetic doctors in Singapore do not perform lasers for pubic hair removal. 


Continuous advancements are coming in laser technology with time. For example, Optimal Pulse Technology(OPT) is a recent and improved technology for laser hair removal. Experts are achieving more successful results with the help of this technology, and the recent development has become Super Hair Removal (SHR)

Optimal Pulse Technology works based on selective light absorption; when it comes in contact with the skin, it effectively kills the hair follicle without damaging the surrounding healthy skin tissues. In addition, OPT can lighten and whiten the areas on the skin. Finally, you must know that pubic hair is the most stubborn human hair, growth will slow down, and hair texture becomes finer within the first 2 or 3 sessions. It will be eliminated by the eighth session upwards, and maintenance sessions are required at longer intervals.

Advantages of OPT:

You will have many benefits if you decide to go for the option of OPT over waxing or shaving. Some main advantages of OPT are as follows:

  • OPT has the power to go into the deeper layers of skin to target hair follicles more effectively as compared to IPL ( IPL stands for Intense Pulse Light; the older technology of laser hair removal). One session of OPT is equal to 3-5 sessions of IPL.
  • OPT is a permanent solution for unwanted hair; once you have completed the sessions recommended by your consultant, there is no need to visit the salon. Unlike Brazilian wax, you must visit the salon regularly. 
  • OPT is also the most time and cost-effective compared to Brazilian waxing and medical lasers.
  • For waxing, you must wait for your hair to grow to a certain length. Otherwise, wax cannot pull out all the hair, but in OPT, you have no such restrictions. OPT can even work on recently waxed or shaved skin.
  • OPT annihilates hair follicles, so you don’t have to worry about ingrown hair. 
  • OPT not only removes hair permanently instead, but it also increases skin elasticity and whitens intimate body parts. 


Summing Up:

In short, Brazilian/ Bikini Hair Removal has become the need of time because hair down there is a nightmare for everyone. There are plenty of ways to help you remove pubic hair, but the recent Optimal Pulse Technology is the best option as it provides permanent results without any side effects. 

OPT can also remove hair on the arms, legs, chest, and back. So don’t waste time and book your appointment for OPT hair removal session at Casa Beauty-Tampines to enjoy silky smooth skin forever!
