Pain In Private Area After Laser Hair Removal

Thank you for your question. It sound like you may have a burn from the laser. This can be treated with topical medications to help soothe your discomfort and proper healing. I would contact your treating physician to have this evaluated.

Pain in the labia after bikini laser session?

There could probably be some burn on the labia. Have it checked by your doctor. Using a soothing aloe vera and a topical antibiotic containing bacitracin and polymyxin B for about 7days would help and eventually you should be okay. It is also possible for there to be concurrent infection, and hence proper examination by a physician would be helpful. Using nightly sitz bath also could help to soothe the skin and accelerate the healing process.

Pain in private area after laser hair removal

You may have a burn the the outer labia. If possible you should take a look with a mirror to see where the pain is coming from. If it is a superficial burn, they can usually be soothed with topical aloe and triple antibiotic creams as needed. You should also definitely contact the clinic where you were treated and let them know your situation.
