In brief: Low pressure, low...

Low pressure means low risk of fluids getting into one's body; means no worries.
Low water pressure would be similar to taking a bath, where the tap water is presumed clean and safe. If worried, one can just run the hand-held bidet for 10 seconds before spraying oneself. If unable to stop worrying about this, just use diaper wipes intead of the hand-held bidet. Diaper wipes aren't just for babies.
