Welcome to the third posting in my series of my experience with the Silkn Home Laser Hair Removal system and the male body. This post will focus on the male brazilian and yes for the purposes of the web I am removing all my hair down there – actually not just for the purposes of the web, my wife and I enjoy the look and feel better.
What exactly as I am doing with the Silkn you might ask, well this picture explains it best:
The big question – is it working? The short-answer is yes, although not as dramatic as my post on using the Silkn on male armpits. Overall I would say that I am achieved roughly 60% reduction from the time I started shaving in the pubic region. In the bikini line that number is more like 80% and the shaft and the scrotum are probably around 70%.
There results are actually not bad when you consider the analysis and the cost needed to get to this stage. Here is a more technical analysis,
So like my armpits, I started in May 2009 using the Silkn on my private parts. If you have not already, read my experience on my armpits.
Since May 22, 2009 up until February 7, 2010, I have had a total of 28 sessions. Since the start I have zapped by nether regions a total of 984 times.
The cost of a bulb, from Silkn Canadaâ€™s website, which they are selling for $65 per Canadian.
Each bulb lasts 750 shots (I have gone through a total of 2 bulbs in all my regions thus far) â€“ which means each zap is valued at $0.087 per zap.
Cost for a Male Brazilian using the Silkn, so far = $85.61
Considering the cost of traditional laser hair removal for Men (check out our comparison pricing page in Calgary, Alberta), this is not that bad considering the results that have been achieved so far.
Even if it takes another year, I suspect the total cost for the costs of the bulbs will not exceed $200 to seriously minimize the hair in my pubic region.
Another question that I am sure to get as you read this is the pain factor. Does the Silkn hurt when using downstairs. Short-answer is that it stings, just a little bit, but honestly it is not uncomfortable as all. I will be posting a further article on Silkn and the lack of pain factor.
Stay tuned, more analysis coming on the SIlkn for Male Hair Removal
