Today’s laser technology has won the battle to keep us hair-free and smooth all over. Laser is the easiest way to get rid of your bum hair if you are male or female. Some people have body hair everywhere and everywhere, with highly visible, thick hairs sprouting from every pore! Others are lucky to have only fine hairs covering their body.
Another day at the office for laser clinics
At Premier Laser our London clinics are used to beautifying bums and in-between butt cracks and buttocks!. It is just another day at the office for us and laser clinics worldwide. The correct term used in clinics for laser hair removal on your bum is the ‘perianal’ area. If you ever wondered where the perianal area was or had heard the phrase but were not quite sure now you know!
Perianal laser hair removal
The perianal area is a popular treatment for men and women. Most women include the perianal area when having a bikini, Hollywood or Brazilian. It makes sense to laser the whole area as it really tidies it up. With more men visiting our clinics opting to have laser hair removal, the perianal area is becoming more popular. It’s the ‘crack’ bit when you hear men having their ‘back, sac and crack’ done. It is an area men are discovering and adding to the laser menu alongside traditional areas of backs, chests and arms. Whether it is for personal hygiene or to please a partner we have seen more guys choosing to get the perianal area lasered.
Can’t I just wax or shave my bum hair?
Typically, there are three ways you can remove hair at home:
- Waxing – you can use wax to remove hair on most body parts. It typically lasts longer than shaving because it pulls the hair from the root. This is often the most painful and consistently needs doing to provide results.
- Shaving – possibly the most common way to remove hair at home is through a razor. This method generally needs the most upkeep and most frequently doing as the results don’t last as long.
- Creams – using a cream for sensitive areas is not recommended, as it can cause lasting damage to the skin.
However, if you have tried waxing or shaving your bum or in between your buttocks you will know it can be quite tricky and risky with people often nicking themselves if using a razor. Not to mention the potential for ingrown hairs which could follow and be painful. Of course, we would recommend laser over waxing or shaving for a more effective long term solution!
How many sessions would I need to remove all hair from my bum?
This depends on your hair type and a number of other factors including skin tone and hormone activity. Normally we would recommend a package of up to eight sessions.
How much does it cost to remove male or female bum hair?
With women’s prices at around £35 per session and men’s laser hair removal prices the same, it is a great value treatment to finally remove hairs in this embarrassing place and have a peachy smooth bottom.
Will the hair on my bum grow back?
Laser hair can reduce the hair regrowth by up to 90% which is almost hair free and will make a huge difference in your appearance and also hygiene.
How to get rid of your bum hair?
The procedure is quite straight forward and quick. It also does not require any great preparation either. If you are considering laser hair removal you would need to shave the area 24 hours before the session. When you turn up for your appointment the practitioner will get you to lay on the treatment table with your knees together pulled into the chest, or alternatively you can be on all fours on your hands and knees. The practitioner will then skilfully zap away at your hairs with the laser hair on the targeted area.
Treatment lasts for 15-20 minutes.
As it is not a huge area compared with say laser hair removal on the back or legs your appointment will be over in no time. And you would be expected to return in 6 weeks for your next session.
Is laser hair removal on my bum hair painful?
Having laser is not painful, although some people are more sensitive to the laser than others. That is why we perform a patch test before starting any treatment during a consultation. Most people describe laser as having an elastic band flicked against them.
