Let’s face it: talking about hair removal can be downright awkward, especially when it’s concerning the hair down there. Genital hair can be particularly cumbersome to remove, due to both its location (a little South, in between, and back a little more) and the coarse texture of the hair. Anal hair frequently develops during puberty around the opening of the rectum. Its original purpose was to keep unwanted materials like dust and small particles from entering the body. It’s perfectly safe to remove them, as long as it’s done safely. Just like the rest of the nether regions, the anus is a sensitive—and important!—area that needs to be treated delicately. Read on to learn how to safely and effectively remove hair from the anal area.
Shaving the Anus
It was only within the last decade or so that shaving your genital areas became the norm. That’s not to say that people didn’t do it anyways; having bare bits has been popular for quite some time. But until recently, most doctors agreed that shaving the genital area was risky due to the possibility for ingrown hairs and difficulty reaching the right spots. The anus itself is contoured in a way that makes it difficult to glide a razor around it smoothly. Plus, shaving the coarse androgenetic hair of your anus and other surrounding areas will result in prickly, stubbly hair in a short while. If you truly want your anal area as smooth as possible, it’s best to avoid shaving it altogether.
Waxing the Anus
Waxing your anal hair won’t get rid of it permanently, but it will stave it off for a few weeks. Brazilian waxes typically remove hair from this area, but if for whatever reason you don’t want your frontal pubic hair removed, most salons will accommodate just an anal wax. During a Brazilian or anal wax, you will be asked to lie on your side. The esthetician may then ask you to raise your knees to your chest so he or she can apply the wax to your anal area. It’s an uncomfortable position, but it’s the best way to avoid hampering from the butt cheeks and thighs. No form of waxing is painless, but fortunately the exterior anal area is less sensitive than the rest of the pubic area.
Laser Hair Removal for Anus
Laser hair removal is another treatment option for the anal area. It’s the most permanent way to get rid of the hair, and it’s less painful than waxing. The power of laser light penetrates the hair follicle, disabling growth. You’ll never have to worry about shaving or waxing again. For best results, most patients get between four and eight treatments total on a weekly basis. The sensation of laser hair removal is comparable to getting snapped by a rubber band. So while it’s no walk in the park, it is less painful than waxing.
