The 3.5 Hour Marathon In Removing Almost All Of My Body Hair

One common question that seems to float around the Internet is how long does it take to do complete body hair removal on a man. My marathon first session was 3.5 hours and it included the following areas:

  • Armpits
  • Chest
  • Abdomen
  • Brazilian including the perianal area
  • Buttocks
  • Lower back
  • Full legs

My take after the first session? I love the results, they are pretty good and the technician that I went to is really good. The problem is that with this long of a time frame you eventually run out of things to talk about. The second problem with this time is that it is very tiring. You are either laying on your back or your stomach the whole time which after a couple of hours of snapping pain it becomes quite tiring. The technician was really good. I could tell she was getting tired from standing, but she held in there. For the most part everything seems to go quite quick, the area of the body that took the longest and in my opinion the most tedious was the legs, they just seemed to go on forever.

Would I do this again. Short-answer is that I have one more session like this booked. Then I plan on breaking out the legs and doing them separately. Two reasons for this; the first is that the schedule for legs, according to my tech, is every 8-weeks while the rest of the areas is recommended 4-6 weeks and the second reason is that the legs take about a little over an hour, so they themselves are the biggest chunk to the full body.

If you have done full body or a large portion of your body, I would love to hear your experience



Men’s Chest Laser Hair Removal, First Session – Yes It Hurts Like Hell

So I decided to get my chest lasered. After doing a lot of research on the internet about laser hair removal, male laser hair removal and the such, I thought it was time to put my money where my mouth is and go for some male chest laser hair removal. Where did I go, I went to Laser Hair Centre in southwest Calgary.

First the good news. Laser Hair Centre did a great job. Gwenn Molnar is an amazing technician, actually she is an RN, who really understands the process. She was pretty blunt with me, laser hair removal on a man’s chest hurts – plain and simple. In fact, as we were going through the process she even mentioned that women’s private parts are not as sensitive as a male’s chest. Throughout the process, she indicated I was doing well, but there was a few times I was really hoping it would be finished.

The bad news, as you probably have already guessed, is that the first treatment on my chest hair was no picnic. It hurt – it actually really fucking hurt. Throughout the procedure I kept thinking, how do so many women and men remove their genital hair and actually stand it. Gwenn informed me that the skin around the genital hair is actually not as sensitive as a man’s chest, which gave me some comfort in thinking that my pain was worth it.

I was happy when the procedure was completed. I left the office with my chest on fire, super red and feeling like – “what the hell did I just do”. For the next couple of days, my chest hurt. When I showered it hurt. It was red. It looked liked somebody flicked thousands of elastic bands on my chest just for fun. I really contemplated – why the fu&k did I do this. After about a week, the redness subsided. The pain went away. And soon my chest felt like it has never felt before – smooth.

The results are actually pretty amazing, laser hair removal on the chest works – it really does. After the first treatment, the results are incredible. However, is their pain? Yes there is. Don’t let anybody tell you differently, this hurts. That said, the pain is not unbearable. As I stated it hurts and you wish it would stop, but you can get through it. Once you do, depending on your skin, like me you may feel like sh&t for a few days and your skin may look like a war zone. In my case, this all went away and the results are really good.

So … if you can tolerate some pain, some discomfort for a few days, and are committed to having a smooth chest, this is a first person opinion, it is worth it. It does work. This is the first treatment. The second treatment is coming in August, so I will keep you posted on the results.

User Feedback on the Tria Home Laser System

We recently received a great comment and feedback from one of our user regarding the usage of the Tria Home Laser System (link to the Tria site). The comment is located in our post, Silkn for Male Home Laser Hair Removal – The Male Brazilian – Part 3 in which we talked about results of using the Silkn on male private parts.

This was such an insightful comment that we felt it necessary to make a full post out of it. We would like to hear from other users who have used the Tria in the past and their results, especially if you are male as there is limited information on the web regarding home laser hair removal systems for male body parts.

Here was the comment from Rick, posted on July 18, 2010:

I bought the Tria laser hair removal, and though I’m just doing it for my chest and stomach and shoulders and a little bit on my butt, I warn people to be careful. The first go around, I think I put the setting to high and it really hurt like a mother (there are six settings). It was like someone with sensitive skin who shaves and then breaks out. It really hurt. But having said that, I’ve now done about 5 treatments and my chest and stomach are getting quite smooth. Now after I shave, my skin is as smooth as a baby’s. And each time the hair grows in after shaving, it is lighter and I need not shave as much. I’m guessing after two more laser treatments, it will be smooth enough not to have to shave at all.

My warnings are: Since you have to shave to use the Tria, make sure the shave is close but also in the direction of the growth…especially if you don’t shave much and/or you have sensitive skin like I do. To use the Tria, takes a long time and since it runs on a charge, you can’t cover too much area in a single use. The thing takes like three hours to charge after it stops working. It takes one charge to do a full pectoral area and will take about 30 minutes to do it. Also, you have to have somewhat light skin…so having a nice tan is not a good time to do the laser treatment. The Tria comes with a sensor tester to test the tone of your skin and if you get the green light, then you actually use the sensor to turn on the Tria laser…I guess it’s a safety precaution.

Also if you have hair on your shoulders and back, someone will have to do it for you. I have a little bit on the shoulders and it seems to be growing back less and less, though I’m not an ape…just a little bit of hair. I’m sure it would take a lot more time to do the laser treatments if you have super thick ape like body hair.

One plus is that the Tria has six settings. So if six hurts like a mother, then you can lower the setting in order to tolerate the little rubber band snapping feeling.

I like a little bit of pubes and a small happy trail, but I noticed around the pube line and my happy trail leading up to my button, the laser treatments are really working well…and no more razor bumps at all. Although if you have sensitive skin, I found rubbing a little bit of hydrocortizone cream helps prevent bumps.

Anyway, I’m writing all this because when I bought the Tria, there wasn’t much out there that talked about men’s use and results so I was just hoping it would work for me. Even though it is tedious to use, if you can stand the time it takes, I think it is well worth the cost and time. For me, I am very athletic and I just like having a smooth body. I was always shaving anyway, and now it’s nice not to have to shave so much and enjoy my smooth skin.

I’m not sure I’d use it on my private parts though…I think the laser might be too powerful for that, but I have used it on the area between my nuts and ass…and so far, great results. That was probably TMI. Anyway, good luck if u decide to take the plunge and be a little less hairy.
