Did you know that statistically, women have a higher pain tolerance than men? This is perhaps why women were designed for childbirth instead of men. With this in mind, there are a lot of procedures that women would undergo without really worrying about the pain involved, but men may be more hesitant. Laser hair removal is one of those procedures. Men often wonder just how painful this procedure actually is. Is buttocks laser hair removal for men painful? Let’s take a look and see, so that you can know what to expect.
Is Buttocks Laser Hair Removal For Men Painful?
The first thing that you should know is that the skin around your buttocks tends to be more sensitive than other areas around your body. With that in mind, sensitive areas can be a bit more painful to treat with laser hair removal. This is just because the skin may be more prone to having irritation after the fact, and it may be a bit more sensitive to the sting of the laser beam.
How Long Does the Pain Last?
If you don’t like pain very much (and who does?) then you may want to know how long to expect to be in pain during and after the procedure. The good news is that your pain will not really last very long. Each time they zap a follicle, you will feel a slight sting. It almost feels like a rubber band being popped against your skin. It hurts a little, but it is not anything unbearable.
Chances are, immediately after the skin will feel sensitive. It doesn’t mean that it is going to hurt. It will only feel slightly tender in the area that has been treated. It may be more prone to sunburn as well, so staying out of the sun is a good idea.
How to Reduce the Amount of Pain with Buttocks Laser Hair Removal For Men
To make the procedure more manageable for you, there are some things that you can do to help with pain. You can start by taking a Tylenol before the procedure.

This can really be helpful with pain reduction during and after the procedure.
Other Possible Risks Associated with Laser Hair Removal
Although you may be most concerned on whether or not the procedure hurts, you may also want to think about other possible risks associated with the procedure. Some women have noticed changes in the color or texture of their skin afterwards, but only a few instances of this have lasted longer than just a few days. In extreme cases, it can also cause some blistering or scarring of the area. This is usually avoidable, however, if you go to someone that knows what they are doing. This is why you should always use a professional laser technician for this type of procedure.
