280369 tn?1316705641 hi chantal21, i also looked into laser hair removal, mainly for my belly and bikini line. i do not have a lot of body hair, but those two places really bother me. i did not end up pursuing it after i learned that you have to receive regular treatments to ensure that the hair is removed, and even then there is no guarantee that the hair will not return. talk about frustrating! each visit can cost up to $200 depending on where and how much hair you need removed.
Avatar f tn Hi i am booked in to have laser hair removal for my bikini line next week, but i have read that if you have a history of Hypotrophic / Keloid scarring then the intensity needs to be less aggressive, as i have a large suspected Hypotrophic / Keloid scar along my abdomen from a tummy tuck i am very concerned, but i can not find out anywhere what this intensity should be can you please tell me what sort of level the laser should be set at to avoid any complications.
Avatar m tn Hello, If your skin is prone to folliculitis, then waxing even with Brazilian wax will aggravate the condition. Folliculitis and ingrown hair are common even after Brazilian waxing. If you still want to go in for Brazilian waxing ,then apply cold compresses(ice cubes wrapped in a towel) on the rash and take some antihistaminic like Benadryl or claritin. You can also apply calamine lotion on the rash. It will help in soothing the skin. A mild corticosteroid cream like dermacort will also help.
Avatar n tn I believe its common for everyone to have hair on their bikini line and on their stomach. As far as the areola goes, i have a few that tend to come out every once in a while but not a bunch. I know what you mean though about having a lot of hair. dont feel left out. there are many other female out there alike!
Avatar f tn I had laser hair removal on my bikini area with no problems. I've had two treatments on my legs. The second one was today and for the second time I have a horrible, crazy itchy rash all over my legs. There are literally hundreds of red dots all over them. Cortizone cream only helps a little bit.
Avatar n tn Have you spoke to a Doctor about preventative messures? I had a few round of laser hair removal which stopped new ones appearing for a good 6 months. In the short term, if they are rubbing on underwear, do you cover it with a padded dressing to relieve the friction? I imagine this is quiet stessful as a new mum, just remember it is treatable and there is ways to manage so you are not always in discomfort. Good luck!
Avatar n tn That's why I did laser hair removal for my bikini area, I am so tired of the lumps after I shave. So far so good, and I don't have to shave very often anymore either.
Avatar f tn I have hacked it with a pin and one time I managed to get the worlds longest curliest hair out but now it just looks like a hole that something is supposed to have something in it? I have had laser hair removal and waxes but nothing comes about at that time? This is getting ANNOYING!

427340 tn?1205867731 I'm wondering, I have experienced maybe once a year or once every two years a blister on my bikini like area (inner thigh) just one blister about the size of a dime, maybe a little bit smaller. It's pretty painful and it usually has a milky yellowish color. Can anyone tell me what this could be? The first time I got this blister was I believe when I was pregnant (2 years ago) and I remember my OBGYN asking me when I was about to get surgery to have the babies, if I got those blisters often.
Avatar f tn I'm saving up for laser hair removal but it's going to take me about a year to get to that point. It's so expensive! Hopefully though, it will be worth it.
Avatar n tn I was very self conscious about it growing up- for I couldn't find anything about girls with nipple hair. I actually had laser hair removal when I was 16, but it has all grown back which is unfortunate because it cost a lot! I still pluck when their long enough, but they do become ingrown and I end up having some scarring as well. My boyfriend never even noticed when we first got together, I couldn't believe it. It goes to show that men miss detail. It was a huge relief for me.
Avatar n tn The surgeon tried to do it thru the camera in my belly button but wasnt able to and had to cut me along my bikini line to remove them.
Avatar n tn I am a bit worried that i could have some sort of disease or somthing wrong inside my body? I have read that laser hair removal could help, it's soo expensive, and I have so many areas to treat. I wish that someone would do some reasearch and find out whats going on, im just glad im not alone though. Lastly if anyone has a sucsses storey, please tell.
Avatar f tn A mild corticosteroid cream like dermacort will also help. Also you can go in for laser hair removal which causes permanent reduction of hair and does not cause folliculitis also. Please consult a good cosmetologist/dermatologist for that. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps.
Avatar f tn You may have self esteem issues and may benefit from speaking to someone. Especially going by your comment of being a loser. But what you have done is not bad. It will heal. No one will look at you funny. If it's not bleeding then you can just leave it alone to heal. The raised bump may have been anything.
Avatar n tn My incision is just below my bikini line and is about 8 inches long. I was scared to look at it at first but then after 5 days when i was getting my prolene and bead stitch removed i finally looked and i realised it wasn't as bad as i had imagined. I am now 4 weeks post op tomorrow and i am not yet back to myself but I am almost there. I have done everything the doctors told me. I have got up and moved around as much as possible every day. I have avoided the urge to stay in bed some days.
Avatar n tn I believe it must have happened when they first shaved my face (standard procedure for laser hair removal)- yet the shaving opened all the little acne bumps and must have allowed it to spread. Someone mentioned diabetes and menstral cycle problems. I have very irregular periods and have been diagnosed with " PCOS " (a pre-diabetic stage). I know my facial hair is rooted to this problem, yet I do not know how to fix it.

485259 tn?1519050626 Is it better to shave the area, i'm not talking 'brazilian wax' here, i'm just talking about doing a very good 'bikini line' trim. Any input would be much appreciated especially from those that have had the surgery....both the Laparoscopic & Laparotomy, thanks in advance.
162948 tn?1205256292 I had the mirena in for about 13 months & had it removed end of august to try to get pregnant. I had thought it was more immediate. I found out it can take 3-6 months for your cycle to return. my husband and I are pretty bummed because we would have removed it earlier (or never had it put in). Anyway, I bled a few days after removal (probably due to the removal) & then nothing until a couple days of brown spotting at the beginning of this month.
Avatar f tn Hello, When shaving, get some facial scrub and vigorously scrub bikini line area twice a week. If you notice any ingrown hair, you can apply Neosporin and they will then heal spontaneoulsly. Also wear loose-fitting underwear and clothing. If you go in for waxing ,then apply cold compresses(ice cubes wrapped in a towel) on the rash and take some antihistaminic like Benadryl or claritin. You can also apply calamine lotion on the rash. It will help in soothing the skin.

Avatar n tn If you're really light, you may be a candidate for laser hair removal. Have a laser clinic do a spot test once you're as light as you get, after the summer. If that won't work, see an electrologist. It takes longer but usually works. Best.
