Who is Transgender Laser Hair Removal for?
For trans women particularly, unwanted hair often impedes a successful transition. Estrogen does not work to remove facial hair once it has developed during male puberty. As well, if you plan on having gender-affirming surgery, you may need to remove hair from the genital area beforehand.
Shaving, tweezing and waxing are not only time-consuming (and painful!), they produce only temporary results. Laser hair removal delivers a permanent reduction in unwanted hair.
What is Transgender Laser Hair Removal?
How does it work? We use advanced medical-grade lasers to carefully target the desired area. This area is cleansed and shaven in preparation for treatment. Your experienced clinician will apply the laser to the skin via a handheld device. This may tingle a bit, but most people find it quite tolerable. We apply soothing aloe gel to help with this.
