I want to get laser hair removal on my vagina but I have heard that it can be very sore. Can I use numbing cream on my vagina?
The skin in the vulva area is very delicate, and laser hair removal can be very painful, especially for those with a low pain threshold.
There are a number of topical anesthetic creams which are sold over the counter without a prescription, and can be used to numb the area before undergoing a session. They should generally be applied 15 – 30 minutes before the session, and they result in temporary numbness in the area, usually not lasting more than an hour.
Check with your local drugstore for topical anesthetic creams that are safe for use in sensitive areas like the vulva. It is also a good idea to read the package insert for details about side-effects and sensitivity commonly experienced with the product.
