No problem trimming pubic hair

Lecturer in Dermatology and Venereology at the Faculty of Medicine, Jenderal Soedirman University, Ismiralda Oke Putranti, explained that pubic hair actually has several functions.

The function of the pubic hair, among other things, is to protect the vaginal area so that it is not easy for foreign objects such as tissue, insects, etc. to enter.

“However Shaving pubic hair is a choice,” he said, when confirmed by Kompas.com, Sunday (9/7/2023).

According to him, it’s not a matter of being bald or not, the important thing to consider is how to remove existing pubic hair.

Okay, I suggest you don’t use painful treatments like Brazilian wax.

Because, apart from being painful, this method also increases the risk of infection due to wounds which are the pathways for bacteria to enter.

Instead, the most appropriate way to trim hair in this area is by trimming or using scissors.

“Hair is cut so that it is not too long and thick. Because pubic hair that is too thick also increases the humidity of the pubic area, so there is a risk of developing a yeast infection,” he said.

This skin and genital specialist added, IPL is the best choice for removing hair on the body because the results are quite satisfying.

“As long as the procedure is carried out by trained medical personnel, and in some cases it cannot be done just once, it has to be done in several sessions.”
