  • Hair removal

    Has anyone ever tried laser hair removal for shaft hair? I spoke with a laser technician who did hair and tatoo removal, but although she was receptive and helpful, she didn't believe her lasers would be strong enough. She directed me to another place that had stronger lasers but they would not do this area. They didn't give me a real reason other than they don't do the area I wanted done. I've been using tweezers for years and it works very well. I just get frustrated and down sometimes at the fact that I have to do it every other week... Thanks and KOT

    お元気ですか! Yeah I've wanted to do the same as well. I looked into it a lot before I decided to go with restoration to get rid of the unwanted hair (which will work right?). Most places that will do it advertise it on there websites; as for other places that don't you would just have to ask. It seems that the candela gentlelase laser hair removal system is the best choice for such a sensitive area. Some places will agree to do it but might not have the experience required to do an adequate job. I've read stories on the internet about how people have been burned because of inexperienced technicians; a doctor should be present during procedure as well. It would seem that the places that have the most experience in this field are located in Canada. Hope this was helpful and good luck.

    P.S. I don't know about you, but my hairy shaft is what got me involved with restoration. I honestly care more about having a hairless ちんちん than I do anything else. This might sound presumptuous since I have never felt what it is like to have a foreskin but I would just love to be able to pull down my pants in front of a girl without wondering if she notices that hair follicles are higher up than they should be (no girl has ever commented on it, not even girlfriends, by some miracle). In other words, I think it would be great to hear success stories from others, whether it is about laser hair removal or how restoring skin got the hair to recede to where it belongs.

      There were several threads in the old forum where I posted info about my experience w/hair removal. Should have saved them.

      I have had all of my body hair (legs, arms, underarms and chest) removed professionally with lasers. I wasn't that hairy to begin with but as a recreational nudist, I wanted to get a totally clean look. Professional laser hair removal companies will not "touch" (pun intended) the pubic or perineum regions. Women often get hair removed in those area by waxing (and/or by shaving and tweezing). You can do the same.

      I have removed virtually all of the hair in my pubic region (lower abdomen down to the genitals and inner thighs up to the scrotum) and on the penile shaft using the "Silk'n" (high intensity light) and "Tria" (laser) home hair removal devices. There is still some regrowth (just a few hairs here and there) that I treat w/the Tria (and/or tweezing and shaving) Hair removal in the perineum by any means (except shaving) is very painful because it is such a sensitive area. I have not tried waxing my perineum. However, now that I think about it I should try that instead because it should eventually kill all of the hair in that area too.

      The device I recommend for home hair removal is the Tria. It is very effective in killing hair follicles and the intensity can be adjusted at 3 levels from low to high, depending on your pain tolerance and the resistance of your hair. Despite what they say, laser hair removal is NOT painless. Keep this in mind especially when attempting to remove hair from the penis/genital area. Start at low levels and work your way up. The lower the level the longer it will take for permanent hair removal.

      The Tria is a rechargeable device and there are no additional costs after you buy the unit. I bought and use the Silk'n initially because of it's lower price but that was a mistake. The Silk'n is not as effective as the Tria, it caused burns to my skin (probably my fault but did/do not have the same problem w/the Tria) and you have to pay for replacement light cartridges that are very expensive which will cost more cumulatively together w/the main device than just buying the Tria, which costs around $400. BTW, the cost of a Tria is just a fraction of what you'd have to pay for professional hair removal sessions. Home hair removal is also much more convenient and can done whenever you please; no appts required.

      Laser hair removal CANNOT be used for blond/white hair; only brown/black and the darker the better. This is because the darker colors attract the light and transmit the heat to the hair follicle thereby killing it. Blond/white hair cannot transmit the light/heat effectively. Electrolysis would be the better option for those w/blond or white hair.

      In turn, people with very dark or tanned skin will not get very good results w/laser hair removal because the light/heat will not be focused on the hair; it will be diffused by the skin coloration. Hair removal can still be achieved but it will take longer because of the lower concentration of light/heat that reaches the hair follicles.

      The same would apply to penile/scrotal skin, which tends to be darker than body skin. I personally have med tone body skin but very dark penile/scrotal skin. I have not been able to remove any scrotal/perineum skin w/any device (too painful/sensitive), -- just shaving and, where I can reach, tweezing) but I have been able to remove all of my pubic and penile hair with the Silk'n and Tria.

      Like Tugging, hair removal is a long term process. Keep at it and it will go away.

      Update: I just bought a box of wax strips and used a couple on my perineum. Hair down there was pretty short; shaved recently. Still worked pretty well -- clean as a whistle -- but the area is still a bit sensitive after treatment. Much for effective/efficient than trying to tweeze the hair down there. I few missed hairs were shaved away. Hate to think about how painful it would be to use a laser down there. Waxing much better, even if not permanent.

        Take a look at this thread for a discussion (including Comment #6 by me) on the matter of hair growth on the penile shaft, which I think may be pertinent to you.

        http://foreskinrestoration.vbulletin...-some-guidance

        FWIW, I do not think you can ever get the hair follicles to "recede" from where they are now on your penis.

        Tugging will NOT change that and the relative position will always remain static. The only way to remove the hair on your shaft is to remove it permanently or temporarily by the means mentioned above.

        FYI, the hair follicles on my shaft went up almost all the way up to my circ scar and, as a grower, my bushy pubic hair almost totally obscured sight of my 2" flaccid penis and, when erect at 6", the hair still extended about 1/2 up the shaft from a bushy mass, which simply was visually unappealing to me.

        This is why I 1st started shaving off my pubic hair (1st off my shaft and then entirely) and later made the effort to remove it permanently with home hair removal devices. I have been very happy with the result.

        Apart from making my dick "look" bigger, it also made having sex cleaner and, for those who were inclined to blow me, more enjoyable too.

          Thank you gentlemen for this awesome forum about foreskin restoring, men's issues and the Silk'n! I looked really hard for this info from you guys becasue I had a phalloplasty surgery a few years back and things went sideways and I required a major followup to correct the failed surgery. Long story short, the reconstruction had to use some of my testicle skin to fix the issues. This skin goes up my shaft and I have clusters of hair and I'm looking for solutions you guys might know of? Would a device like the tlc tugger help the penis shaft skin stretch with he penis perhaps more naturally, or something for shaft skin smoothing/scars? I was looking into PMMA enhancement in Rosarita Beach to maybe help fill out the extra, odd (out of place) skin I have on the shaft from the previous phalloplasty surgery. Who knows I reallt don't wan't to make things worse! I'm not sure I can stomach the PMMA because of my experience, but I would never consider a surgery option again.

          I would like to go beyond just shaving my shaft, and maybe a cosmetic procedure you guys might know about for hair removal? Shaving alone just leaves prickly bristles and are very noticeable. Any help would be appreciated and again thanks for the information is there a direct place I can check out the specs of the TLC tugger? I might have some ideas to use it for if what I've read is accurate.

          Cheers,

          Rich

            今日は! Hello sir. Sorry to here about your experience. I can't really offer you any advice; however, regarding phallic laser hair removal, alongside what Swingshiftworker advised, this is what I found. Unless you live in Canada, this is probably of no help, unfortunately.

              Interesting that they will do professional laser removal in Canada in the genital region and that there are services specifically targeted to men. However, a review of the price lists given makes clear why it is much more economical to buy a home hair removal device like Tria. If there are specific areas that are difficult to treat/reach w/a Tria, you can always go to a professional hair removal location for followup, assuming you are willing to pay the price.

                When using the Tria on the penis shaft, I assume you must shave beforehand? Also, has the Tria ever burnt your shaft skin?

                  I have been burnt by my Silk'n but not by my Tria.

                  Tria recommends that you shave 1st before treatment. However, the shaft of pubic hair runs so deep and is so easily obscured by the skin after shaving that it may be better if you wait a day or 2 after shaving before treatment so that there's some visible stubble that can better absorb the heat of the laser.

                    Thanks for your feedback, I'm interested in trying this.
