Last year I wrote a column about body hair removal for athletes. The column investigation got me interested in the techniques because I’ve had a recurring saddle sore every season for years and years. After writing the column I decided to have the laser hair removal treatment, beginning last fall. Because my saddle sore was always in the body-leg intersection area that receives pressure from the saddle, I decided on a hair removal pattern closest to a “bikini”.
The good news is that my annual saddle sore that reappeared in the same location every season, did not occur this season. It seems the laser treatment did work.
As the column notes, the treatments should be done over the course of several weeks, each treatment separated by four to six weeks. This means if you plan to have this treatment done for next cycling season, you need to begin now.
Did anyone else try a hair removal technique and experience success?
