Thinking of getting laser treatment on the male pubic region? With the number of clinics now advertising that offer male brazilians it would appear that the procedure is getting more and more common. Although I don’t have any concrete evidence of this, I can say that in September I joined the ranks of men who have decided to permanently remove their pubic hair via laser hair removal.
The purpose of this post is not to explain the results of the treatment, this is coming in a subsequent post, but rather to explain what I did prior to the treatment to get comfortable with the laser clinic as well as the laser technician. Considering I was about to get partially naked in front of a complete stranger and have them yield a laser that would be touching my testicles, shaft and anus this was not a decision that I was planning to simply run into.
Here are my words of advice for any male (or female) that is looking at getting laser hair removal in their private area done.
#1 – Ask a lot of questions
Some of the questions that I asked my technician:
– What date did you first do a male brazilian?
– How many brazilian’s have you done?
– Can you explain exactly what will happen during the procedure and what you require of me? (This is an important question as some clinics will say you do nothing, then will shift stuff around, and others will say they won’t touch your private area but instead will ask you to participate by moving your junk back and forth)
– Have you had any clients that were not happy with your work?
– How long will it take?
– What % of your clients have started with a brazlian and then moved to other body parts or started with other body parts and moved to brazilian?
– How do you communicate during the procedure?
– Have you burnt any clients?
The purpose of asking a lot of questions is to build rapport. The way a person answers the above questions will show genuine knowledge. If a person is irritated by your questions or wants you to make a decision in a hurry, run away, they clearly don’t care about making you feel at ease. What I was really looking for was to ensure that the person had experience, the rest was building rapport.
#2 – Build Rapport
Starting with the questions you want to make sure you are comfortable with the person doing the procedure. The key comfort level is to make sure that you have good communication to and from the technician to ensure the procedure goes smoothly. Considering how intimate this procedure this (and by intimate I don’t mean anything that would reasonable a turn – just that you are naked with your junk exposed in front of another person) you may also want to have a technician with whom you can have a conversation about general subject matter while the procedure is being performed.
In my case, I like a talkative laser tech. Somebody who can talk intelligently on a variety of subjects. Granted this is a personal preference but I could not spend 20-30 minutes with a tech who was completely silent.
#3 – Get Over the Embarrassment
When you actually go in for the procedure the technician will tell you to remove everything from waist down. In my case I was also doing armpits at the same time, so basically besides socks, I was completely naked on the table. Perhaps for some freakish men this is considered a turn-on, but truthfully, it is a little embarrassing laying on a table naked waiting for a laser tech to come in.
To point #2 of building rapport, the tech came in and immediately put me at ease by jumping into conversation (can’t actually remember what the conversation was) while she setup the machine and gave me the glasses. This immediately put me at ease and brought my tension level down. First she did the armpits and then when she was about to start the brazilian portion she took some time to explain again what was going to happen and when she was going to need me to move stuff around. Probably the most embarrassing part was lifting your legs up to your stomach and spreading slightly while she did the anus area.
When the procedure was done, she left and I got dressed. As I was dressing I was thinking to myself, I am about to go out to the counter and pay the bill to a women who has intimately seen all my nether regions. Going back to the importance of rapport when I got out of the room to pay, she was completely professional, asked how everything was, cracked a good joke and gave me the bill. When I was paying we set-up the second appointment.
As mentioned, I will put up another post on the results (so far after two sessions, I am impressed) but I wanted to share my experience in selecting a technician and the first procedure. Before selecting a clinic I interviewed 4 clinics and 4 technicians who offer the service and I think my list of questions and the initial rapport has paid off in finding a technician who is professional, knowledgeable and makes me comfortable. By the way, the clinic that was selected is called the Hair Free Laser Institute in Calgary.
I hope that you find the information in this post useful.
