It’s time to talk about the bum—the area that’s often hidden from view but is quite common to have hair growth. If you’ve ever felt self-conscious about your bikini line or waxed your backside, it could be because of unwanted body hair. Shaving and waxing don’t help and may make the situation worse. The solution to getting rid of body hair permanently is laser hair removal.

Buttocks Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal is a permanent solution for unwanted body hair. It works by targeting the pigment in the hair follicle, causing it to gradually die and stop producing new hairs. This process can take several sessions, but some people see results in as few as three treatments (though they often require maintenance treatments afterward).

Here’s how it works: A laser beam is aimed at the area being treated. The laser heats the hair follicle beneath the skin’s surface, destroying that part of your body’s “root” (the bulb where new hairs grow). This stops further growth from occurring there for many years to come—and may even permanently remove existing unwanted hairs altogether!

Benefits of Buttocks Laser Hair Removal

It makes unwanted hair easy to control or get rid of completely! Many people find that after having their buttocks lasered once or twice (sometimes more), they no longer need to shave or wax their legs. You’ll have less stubble than with shaving alone because there’s no need for razors anymore—plus less time spent on upkeep means more time enjoying yourself during your day-to-day routine!

Is Hair on the Bum Normal?

There is no such thing as too much hair on your bum. What’s normal is a matter of personal preference and varies from person to person. Some people prefer to leave their bum hair untouched, while others prefer to shave or wax it off completely.

Buttocks laser hair removal is not a medical term and it doesn’t have anything to do with hygiene or health concerns. It’s simply a cosmetic treatment that removes unwanted hair from the buttocks, which has been popularized by celebrities like Kim Kardashian and Jennifer Lopez.

It’s also worth noting that men can get laser buttock treatments too! It’s common for both men and women to grow some body hair on their bums; there are plenty of other areas where hairs can grow too, like the chest, arms, and legs.

Does Laser Hair Removal Work on Buttocks?

Yes, laser hair removal works on the buttocks. This is because the area has dark hair and a light skin tone. This makes it easy to see the results of the treatment, which is why it’s a popular choice for people who want to get rid of unwanted body hair.

The best laser hair removal results have been achieved on the face, armpits, and legs–areas with thinner skin that are less susceptible to friction or moisture loss.

How Effective is Laser Hair Removal on Buttocks?

Laser hair removal works best on dark, coarse hair. This is because the laser can better penetrate through the hair shaft and damage the follicle at its root. In comparison, light hair or gray hair may not be as effective because it’s harder for the laser to differentiate between your skin and the color of your hair. If you have light or gray hair, laser hair removal may not be the best option for you. The results aren’t guaranteed and can be costly. However, if you have coarse black hair on your buttocks, laser hair removal will likely work well for you as long as your skin is dark enough to absorb the light energy of the laser.

How Many Laser Hair Removal Treatments Are Needed for the Bum Area?

You’ll likely need 3-5 laser hair removal sessions to fully clear the area. Each session takes about 30 minutes, and it’s not painful—just a little uncomfortable. Since this skin can be sensitive, we recommend numbing it with a topical anesthetic cream before treatment begins. The therapist will apply a thin layer of the cream to your skin before each session so you don’t feel pain during laser therapy.

How to Prepare the Bum Area for Laser Hair Removal Treatment?
  • Shave the area before the treatment.
  • Don’t use depilatory creams or waxing for at least 4 weeks before the treatment.
  • Don’t use hair removal creams or lotions for at least 4 weeks before the treatment.
What Might Happen If You Don’t Shave?

Some patients are concerned about what will happen if they don’t shave before a laser treatment session. Should you shave or wax before your appointment? How much time should pass between shaving and laser treatment?

If you don’t shave before your appointment, it could make it harder to see any hairs that do show up on your skin. They’ll blend in with the rest of your body and be harder to target with the laser machine.

The laser targets dark pigment and if the hair lays flat against the skin it may singe it and burn your skin. But that also means that the laser heats the hair shaft, causing it to break off. This can lead to more visible regrowth.
