TRUE STORY I had the hair on my bum lasered off and it was way more thorough then I had imagined.
Hi hi hiiii.
Confession/over share time.
I don’t know if this is a side effect if losing weight, my poly cystic ovaries or if it was always there and I never noticed it but I discovered recently that I have/had extremely hairy buttocks.
No shame here. I bet you are no stranger to having hair in places most people don’t like to talk about. It is normal.
I’ve been receiving laser hair removal on my face, arms, armpits and the bottom half of my legs for ages, and it has been a game changer for me.
I know hair laser removal for some might sound indulgent, but in my situation it is a necessity.
It’s not just about being hairless – because I am not shaving regularly – and I have been getting lasered, my hair follicles are not being blocked by ingrown hairs and my skin is much clearer and happier even on my face. Prior to laser I was prone to infections in the hair follicles and it was nasty.
Any who back to to my story about my generic hairy crack.
This morning I popped along to Takapuna Laser Clinics for my appointment and they managed to have extra time (due to a cancellation) to add my bum to the schedule.
Hair Laser Removal prep involves shaving the night before and showing up to the appointment makeup and deodorant free- no an issue for my bum as I don’t deodorise it or make it up – I’m more of an au natural bum girl.
I had to shave my bum though…. well more accurately I ATTEMPTED TOO.
DO YOU KNOW HOW HARD IT IS TO SHAVE YOUR OWN BUM! VERY
BACK TO THE STORY
Anyway I was sufficiently chuffed with myself so I went to my appointment this morning…
I had to take off my pants and panties and hop on the table – lying on my stomach and I said oooo I don’t think I shaved very well…
She was so kind about it and begun to shave my behind, she requested I LIFT my bum slightly so she could remove all the hair – I was a little embarrassed but more so because it was a new experience..
It was me not her.
Then she moved the razor slightly inside the bum cheeks, I had to slightly hold it this way and then that way – it took a while OMG how much hair is there, it felt like there was a never ending supply of it, I just kept cool and help the bum area up and taut, trying to enable her and save her from any extra added time of viewing my bum.
Then out came the laser and basically we repeated the move – hold = taut situation except she had a laser not a razor. (Definitely wasn’t a taser)
Pain wise, it wasn’t too extreme there is clearly a bit of follicular swelling (totally normal) cos I have a bit of a itch, so I just apply a bit of laser aid and I’m all good to go again.
I am still slightly shocked at how close up the laser got, I don’t actually know if it was THIS CLOSE but it felt kind close to my butt hole.
The skin on my bum feels much more comfortable now, I also feel kind of vulnerable without that Afro that only I knew about that was protecting me but I’m sure I will adjust to not having it quick smart.
