There are no known side effects of laser hair removal on male genitalia i.e., penile shaft and scrotum. The question of infertility has not been addressed but the likelihood of any damage to the production of sperms is small. The sperms are produced frequently. Even if there was any damage to the sperms, those will be replaced with newer healthier sperms.
