Living life as your best, most authentic self takes courage and strength. No matter where you are in your journey of transition, take time to celebrate the beauty you own – inside and out. Unwanted hair, however, can often be a stubborn obstacle, and a source of great frustration. You can overcome it – with help from advanced laser hair removal.
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.
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 practitioner 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.
Laser hair removal is appropriate for all skin types, and during your consultation, your practitioner will discuss your unique needs. Within 6 – 9 sessions, most clients see exemplary results.
We understand that this procedure is sensitive; your practitioner is fully trained, experienced and most respectful of your needs, goals and privacy. This is one step in your journey, and we’ll ensure that it is comfortable, convenient – and, most of all, effective. Schedule a consultation today to learn more.
