Is electrolysis on the penis completely safe? If not, what are some of the potential complications?

Laser would probably be better depending on your skin tone. Ive had laser in that area. Electrolysis should be safe if done by a properly qualified person.

Electrolysis on shaft and scrotum is absolutely safe. I have been having treatments for a year now. Some temporary side effects especially during first few treatments will be soreness, some bruising, sometimes hard lumpy swelling but rare. I would recommend blend electrolysis over thermolysis but thermolysis with experienced tech will work good as well. It's a painful area so lidocaine cream is a must.

Laser treatment results on shaft and scrotal area is questionable. I would think it's a high risk gamble for failure. Stick to electrolysis.

Thanks for the responses. I thought laser would not be good because the hair is not dense. Assumed electrolysis would be better for sparse hair. Just scared because of the area. What are some good numbing creams?

There is EMLA 5% which has to be prescribed by a doctor and is covered by insurance. There is also LMX 5% which is non prescription over the counter. I buy it from Amazon. LMX 5 is very effective to make electrolysis on sensitive areas tolerable. Topical creams don't make the experience 100% pain free but they manage to reduce pain very good.

I find pain is individual. I have had male clients who had zero issues with pain in the groin region even the penis shaft. As fenix suggests if pain is of an issue EMLA ( which is usually 2.5 % lidocaine and 2.5 % prilocaine) or any shelf brand of 5 % lidocaine applied to the area can help.

Some tips on useage of topical lidocaine:
Genital regions on females can ave lots of mucas membranes that can absorb the product very quickly.
You should use plastic wrap ( occlusion) to prevent the product from rubbing off when you sit or on clothing.I recommend using GLAD brand "Press N Seal" as it can be cut to shape and sealed to the skin around the edges. Especially over complicated to cover genital areas this can be super useful.
Lidocaine or EMLA work best the longer they are left applied, up to 2 hours beforehand to come to full effect.
Note that there has been one recorded death from misuse of EMLA with someone who covered way too large an area and had an adverse reaction to EMLA and died on the way to their laser treatment. To prevent this you should not cover an area larger than an a4 sized piece of paper. Also it's inadviseable to drive to your treatment, and if you have not used lidocaine before you should have someone you trust with you in case of adverse reaction so they can summon medical assistance if needed.

Neither EMLA not 5% lidocaine can eliminate all discomfort, but it can elp considerably.Look into other pain relief tips as well.

I cannot imagine getting electrolysis on genitals without numbing first. I will try some LMX5 from Amazon since EMLA is Rx only. Thank you for Glad tip.

I have done electrolysis on my penis/testicles/anus without any problem, yes it was sometimes painful but bearable. The result is GREAT!
