Hello to HairTell Forum,

I have hair growing on my penis shaft - a lot. It grows half way up my penis with a high density. And there are the few hairs here and there on the top half of my shaft - so basically hair all along my shaft, but higher density on the bottom half.

I was wondering if it would be safer to perform IPL or laser on the penis?

Would laser include devices using the ND-Yag Laser / Gentle Yag Laser? (Hence name?)

And would IPL include things like the lumenis one?

Thank you so much!

Electrolysis would do a better job of this. I dont recommend ipl to anyone, and if they must do laser, only an alexandrite or yag laser will do.

If you're lucky enough to find anyone in electrology world willing to work on the private area, I would invest time, money and energy in electrolysis for best possible result. If electrolysis is not an option, laser is an option but I doubt you'll get satisfying result in that area. But with laser your option will be limited to ND:Yag as the skin is normally not light enough for Alexandrite laser. Do not waste money on IPL, it's a poor system.

Some electrologists openly advertise they serve transgender clients.Such electrologists would be a good choice. Why? Because its precisely the area that is cleared before surgery . They likely are already doing such work smile

Not always. Here in Germany it is not common to clear that area before SRS.

In North America, we seem to have a mix of surgeons who have different preferences indeed some that insist in no prior electrolysis. The majority seem to want electrolysis done well in advance, clear for a year seems to be what they go for. In general it is the area on the shaft scrotum and about 1/2 inch surrounding area though the precise area seems to differ from surgeon to surgeon as well.

I think Tyler is talking about the very common area that should have permanent hair removal (not seeking re-assignment).

FYI, this should take no more than 3 - 4 hours total, however, done in smaller bits of time, and local anesthetic is appropriate.

Yes, I'm not seeking SRS. But it would be great to find an electrolysis clinic in Bangkok. In Bangkok a place offering electrolysis is hard to find - they all offer lasers. The only place to offer electrolysis is Yanhee Hospital. And their prices are absurdly high - USD $90 for a needle, and USD $130 per hour.

And from Fenix's suggestion I went ahead and found a clinic using ND:Yag Laser for $60 a session that includes the penis shaft, perineum, and surrounding anal areas.

I'll update you guys as to how it goes smile

There's a fellow that posts here from Bankok who has been getting electrolysis at the hospital in Bangkok.

Thank you for the note - I read it and he seems quite pleased with the service and results. It's great that Yanhee offers injections - I don't think I could bare so much shocks down there. I will go to Yanhee for touch ups once I am done with my ND:Yag laser treatments.

I just got back from my first laser hair removal treatment in the region down there and it was a mix of a light zap and pain! I was givin numbing cream for an hour and half and then proceeded with the treatment. Some areas were pain free, but after the numbing agent started wearing off, not even ice packs helped.

But I tried my best, and I'm glad to be done with my first treatment.
