Laser Hair Removal vs Manscaping - What Works Better?
Tired of having hair down there? With today's technology and innovative trends, there are plenty of ways to remove unwanted hair from any part of your body you choose. The thing is, while some methods will certainly remove the hair, they may also remove some other things, too—like skin, self-confidence, and the ability to sit down for extended periods of time.
You see, while there's a bevy of hair removal products and services on the market, not everything is made for your twig and berries. Pick the wrong option, and your sensitive parts could resent you for a really long time. Some men weigh the options between laser hair removal and good old fashioned manscaping. If the word 'laser' isn't enough to make you discount that option all by itself, here's a deep-dive into the pros and cons of each method, as they relate to your manhood.
Obviously, your pain-tolerance threshold on your lower parts is going to be a lot different than it would be on, say, your arm. You may be able to tolerate tons of pain in your day-to-day life, but when you're dealing with areas that are typically off-limits to the general public, you might be surprised to discover how a minor irritation can send shock waves up your spine. Of course, that would be the type of surprise classified in the unpleasant category.
If you don't want to learn the hard way what your pain tolerance is in your nether region, razors win this race.
Manscaping involves no pain at all, as long as you give yourself enough time and patience to procure the area properly. Of course, you also need to be sure you're using the right tools. A dollar store disposable razor isn't going to cut it for a manscaping mission (although, the chances of a cheap razor cutting it are pretty high).
Laser hair removal is actually a fairly pain-free practice...when it's not performed around the penis. As long as you find the right laser professional, the skin itself shouldn't be impacted. With that said, do you really want to risk your scrotum to the hopeful wishes that the person you've chosen knows how to operate the machine properly?
Beyond the potentially painful situation of burning, the procedure itself isn't feeling-free. Some people describe the sensation of laser hair removal like that of a pin prick or the snap of a rubber band. On your arms or leg, that's more of an irritating poke than a devastating situation. But, close your eyes and imagine with a rubber band would feel like as it's flying toward the sensitive skin on your genitals. Get the picture?
Although cost isn't the only consideration you're probably thinking of when you want to make your manliness less hairy, it's certainly something to put on the pros and cons list.
Manscaping enables you to get all the products you need at one time, replacing them only as needed. Although you'll be purchasing manscaping products as they run out or dull down, the incremental cost is minimal, so it won't make a major impact on your wallet with a one-time wallop. Take The Lawn Mower™ 2.0 trimmer, for example. This professional-grade personal trimmer is equipped to to go the long haul on short and curly hair without tugging and pulling at your sensitive parts. It comes with a cleaning bush, so you can keep it looking like the day it arrived at your front door for all of eternity, and it costs less than you're going to spend on your next date.
Laser hair removal, on the other hand, can be quite costly. Even if you get a discounted deal, you're looking at several hundred dollars. $300 to $500 isn't an unusual cost for laser hair removal. If you're fine with this fee, it might be a good solution for you, but bear in mind, money isn't the only thing driving good juju around your junk.
Have you considered convenience? This is a factor that can really affect the effectiveness of the hair-removal method you choose.
Manscaping can be done anytime, from anywhere. You don't have to worry about unexpected business trips turning missed appointments into hairy situations. You don't have to schedule meetings and appointments around the best times to have your balls blasted with a laser. Morning, noon, or night, manscaping is by far the most convenient option.
Laser hair removal relies on marked moments on the calendar. It's not a single-stop solution. Instead, you'll need to visit the laser people multiple times over the course of several weeks or months so the laser can find its way into your follicles as the hair grows back. A scrotum session probably wouldn't take a ton of time, but missed appointments can make things a little messy down there, so you'll need to make sure you create a schedule and stick to it if this is the option you choose to go.
Let's be honest—discreteness may be the biggest determining factor for many men.
Manscaping is done in the privacy of your own bathroom, with no one around to watch (unless you're into that sort of thing).
Laser hair removal is really a balls-to-the-walls solution that requires you to spread your legs and show the world what you're made of. Even if you're incredibly proud of the piece you've produced within the confines of your boxers or briefs, the positions you'll need to be in to achieve successful laser hair removal down there are far from centerfold status.
If you don't want to learn how awkward your balls can really be, roll out the Magic Mat™ and get to grooming!
Laser hair removal is the obvious winner when it comes to the permanence factor. By definition, the purpose of laser hair removal is to remove the hair. That means forever. While you're weighing the pros and cons between these two options, it seems obvious that you're currently looking for a solution that'll make your skin fuzz-free. Before you proceed, think about the fact that you may not always want to be hairless. Or, perhaps, you'll want to have a little hair somewhere down the line, but maybe you can just keep it more defined.
Manscaping is a flexible solution that let's you grow as much or as little hair as you want to. Whack it into weird shapes, shave it all the way to the skin, or simply trim it so it doesn't sneak out to say hello. Pubic hair actually has health benefits; after all, everything's on your body for one reason or another.
Laser hair removal is a permanent solution that you can't reverse if you change your mind. It's like that a really bad Elmer Fudd tattoo someone's cousin did in their basement—only worse, because covering it up with ink would just be weird and creepy.
