Hair removal is an important part of the transition process as you align your physical self with your inner self. For many people in the transgender community, most often trans women, the removal of unwanted hair is an absolute necessity. A beard, chest hair or heavy hair growth in other unwanted areas will respond to laser hair removal treatment and can be gotten rid of, for good. You can achieve the smooth, feminine skin you want that accurately represents who you are, and allows you to more freely express that identity.
During the treatment, the laser emits a beam of light and heat into the hair follicles. This breaks down the hair follicles. From the time of treatment, it will take 1-3 weeks to see the full results, but the hair will appear thinner and less noticeable with just one treatment. Ultimately, any hair in the area that was treated is weakened, greatly reduced or gone--and the skin is wonderfully smooth and feminine.
How long will laser hair removal take to work?
Laser hair removal has to directly hit the hair follicles during the growing stage. Because hair follicles don’t all grow together at the same time, it will take 6-8 treatments spaced one month apart to ensure all the follicles have been treated in an area.
Is the laser painful? Is there any downtime?
There is no downtime, but the treatment can be painful. Some describe this as a mild stinging sensation while other patients find it to be more uncomfortable. A laser treatment is less painful than electrolysis or waxing.
Additionally, treatments are very short, which helps those who find it more painful than others.
