First things first, if you don’t feel like grooming your pubic hair it’s totally fine. Male genital hair removal is a personal choice and there is no need to feel self-conscious about it. However, if you’re thinking of grooming your pubic hair, you should consider proper safety measures and optimum products that will help you with the process as knowingly given how thin and precious the skin is.
But is it possible to get rid of pubic hair at home? Ah! It’s entirely possible to do it by yourself at home.
Based on personal preferences, many men trim their pubes and others prefer to shave or wax and a few go for laser hair removal as well.
Waxing your Pubic Hair
Hair removal by waxing is different from other methods because the hair is removed from the roots and doesn’t grow back as quickly. In case you choose to wax, it’s best, getting it done at a salon. On the contrary, a good amount of preparation is required beforehand. You’ll need to wait for your pubic hair to grow out almost a quarter of an inch to get the desired results and cannot schedule your waxing appointments according to your convenience. It is a time-taking process as it involves booking an appointment, visiting there, and getting waxed. In terms of pain, waxing is the most painful hair removal method because it involves the physical ripping of pubic hair out of the follicle, which is not something enjoyable, leaving your skin feeling tender. Along with all the pain and inconvenience, a waxing appointment also ends up being quite expensive.
Hair Removal Creams for Genital area
Using over-the-counter cream hair removers is one of the most common and painless hair removal methods. But, make sure you read all the instructions, ingredients and how to use them carefully before using as it is important to be aware of the ingredients to know whether it is safe to use in your pubic area. These hair removal creams work chemically by dissolving hair and can contain caustic ingredients due to which their pH level is high and can cause redness, irritation, and allergies. These cream hair removers generally have a strong and unpleasant smell that lingers even after hours of usage.
Laser for Pubic Hair
The laser hair removal method is long-lasting. A laser beam is positioned and shot into your skin, the hair follicles absorb the heat and self-destruct to stop the pubic hair growth. The process can feel like a pinch or a rubber band being lightly bounced on your skin. It takes around 30 minutes for each session and can involve 6-8 sessions over the course of a few months depending on your pubic hair growth. The clinical promise is 70% hair removal and it is recommended to go for maintenance appointments 2-3 times a year. Apart from the nominal side effects of laser hair removal, it certainly isn’t cheap. There is an exorbitant price that one needs to pay to get laser pubic hair removal done.
