It's summertime, which means you've got your SPF30 in one hand and your polka-dot bikini in the other. There's only one small problem: your bikini line. I'm pretty sure every girl has always wondered about bikini waxing.
To tweeze them: Before you start plucking, mark where you want your brows to begin and end with a white pencil. Trust us, this helps keep you from going overboard. The pros' best trick: Hold the pencil against the side of your nose and put a line where it hits your eyebrow; tilt the pencil diagonally so it touches the outer corner of your eye and mark that spot; and, finally, put a dot just above the outside of your iris — that should be the highest point of your arch.
Everyone's skin is obviously different, so we always advise going to a dermatologist for major skin care concerns. Research each product before trying one to see which one makes the most sense for you. It's marketed to men as a solution to razor bumps, so I figured if it worked for guys, it'd work for me too.
I was born with Klippel-Trenaunay syndrome, a rare vascular condition which affects roughly one in every 30, people in the UK. The most visible feature of this is a large port wine stain or birthmark, which covers about half of my body and two thirds of my face. I feel very lucky to have grown up surrounded by people who love and support me, and I have found it relatively easy to accept myself and my medical situation.

Hi Becca, this is a great review and exactly what I was looking for. Just one question though. Thanks for your review and your patience!
I have been receiving treatment on my bikini line and underarms from Harley Medical Group and the results have been incredible. As I am mixed-race my hair is very curly, dark and coarse. I found that constant shaving was leaving me with razor bumps and ingrown hairs.
For years, the only solution to getting rid of this thick, unruly body hair was shaving, waxing and hair removal cream, with little or no option for laser treatments, but as technology plays catch up there are now more ways to stay hair-free than ever before. This was because lasers work by targeting the melanin found in the hair follicles and inhibiting the growth - if your hair and skin colour were too similar it would be almost impossible for the laser to target the follicles. However, a newer method, called the GentleLase GentleYAG Pro laser treatment, has been developed for deeper penetration, which Dr Karim claims can target the darker hair shaft better, while sparing the pigment in the skin.
Are you nervous about getting a bikini wax? Well, you've come to the right place. From prepping for your first appointment to treating your bikini area post-wax, we've got you covered. But remember that you don't have to wax your bikini area — hair down there is completely natural, and leaving it as is is totally OK.
