Laser and the Perianal Area
The perianal is a popular area for laser hair removal. It is located around the rectum and usually includes the perineum. (Otherwise referred to as your bum, butt – if you’re American, or anus to give it the correct medical term!.
Whichever term you prefer, it’s the annoying hair down there that you don’t want to be down there!.
So what are you options?. But first, let’s clear up exactly where were talking about, to avoid any confusion.
Where is the Perineum & can I laser there?
The perineum is the small strip of skin between your anus / bum and genitals on both men and women. This area can be effectively treated for laser hair removal.
So you can finally say goodbye to waxing and shaving.
By having laser on the buttocks and perianal you will save yourself the trouble, and difficulty, of removing it yourself in these tricky and hard to reach places.
Also you will not have the ongoing expenses of waxing or shaving or the potential of painful ingrown hairs. The last thing you want is an infected, swollen ingrown hair as they can be extremely painful specially when trying to sit down!
How to get rid of perianal hair
Like most parts of your body where you don’t want hair, the perianal and your buttocks can have its fair share of hair. Growing wildly and out of control, laser hair removal can soon have the area tamed, smooth and hair free.
Choose the perianal on any bikini or Brazilian packages
Most people will have the perineum done while they are having other areas lasered.
If you are already have or are thinking about laser hair removal down below then it makes sense to choose the perianal area and buttocks (if required) as part of your package. Most laser hair removal companies allow you to pick and mix the areas you want treated.
Perianal & Buttock Laser hair removal
For example, if you are already having bikini or an extended bikini (g-string) laser hair removal or having a Brazilian why not add the perianal area?. It will not add much time to your laser session and it is a good idea to get it all done together if it bothers you.
Also it will tidy the area so you will be hair free round the front and back!

How many sessions will I need?
Once you start laser hair removal your previous methods of hair removal will need to stop, otherwise it will interfere with your treatment. Most people will require a course of 6-8 session for best results. Package prices tend to work out better value then pay as you go pricing.

How do I prepare for perianal?
We have written a guide on how to prepare for laser hair removal and it gives you a detailed breakdown of what you need to do for best results. There are no extra steps you need to take for perianal laser hair removal then you would for other areas.
Of course you will want to maintain good personal hygiene, washing using warm soapy water prior to your appointment and shave at least 24 hours before your laser is recommended.
Worried or embarrassed about having laser here?
You should not be worried or embarrassed at all. Laser hair practitioners are friendly and professional and have seen and done it all. Doing laser hair removal everyday, they have treated hundred if not thousands of people just like you.
If you are worried about having a younger practitioner ask your clinic to provide a senior, more experienced practitioner, to put you at ease and make you feel comfortable.
How long does treatment take?
Laser hair removal on your perianal is quick and straight forward. It is only a small area so can be covered in a few minutes by your practitioner. The buttocks may take lightly longer.
How does the laser work?
Laser hair removal works by sending a focused pulse of light onto the skin. This heats the pigment in the melanin and destroys the hair all the way down to the root and hair follicle. The hair will then fall out up to 7 days later. Laser only destroys hair in the anagen phase of the hair growth cycle, this is why more then one session is required.
Will it work on my skin type?
Perianal laser hair removal is a fantastic solution whatever your skin type and tone. Todays lasers use dual wavelengths, like the Candela Gentlemax Pros we use at Premier laser, operate on the Alexandrite 755nm wavelength and the Nd:YAG 1065nm wavelength which can treat skin types 1-6 on the Fitzpatrick scale or light to dark brown
Our top-of-range Candela lasers are FDA approved and are found in medical practices and hospitals worldwide.
Is it painful?
Laser hair removal is generally not considered to be painful, although everyone has a different pain threshold. The sensation has been compared to having a rubber band pinged against your skin. A sensation most can tolerate. Numbing cream can be used if you are more sensitive.
