If you're looking for trans friendly laser hair removal or laser hair removal for transgender people you're in the right place. TransFriendly lists thousands of businesses the world over that welcome and support transgender and non-binary people, including specialists in trans laser hair removal.
Laser hair removal for transgender people can be an expensive and time consuming process. Sessions necessarily need to be spaced several weeks apart to allow time for each hair growth cycle to complete – which means you can be revisiting the same provider for months or years to get all of the hair you need removed.
Many providers of transgender friendly laser hair removal are able to offer a discount to customers who are willing to pay upfront for all of their sessions. This can be really worthwhile – as it means you’re already covered for the full course of treatment, but it’s Important that you first make sure you’re fully comfortable with the service provider that you’ve chosen, and that they’re ready to serve and welcome transgender and non-binary customers.It’s important to avoid committing to visiting somewhere again and again if you’re not confident you’ll be treated with the dignity and respect you deserve.
You’ll also find that prices vary from clinic to clinic, depending on where you are in the country or the world. The amount of hair you currently have, and the areas you’d like to be treated, can also have a big impact. Many of the laser hair removal providers listed on TransFriendly have uploaded price tables to give you an indication of what you’ll pay.
Generally, around 8-16 sessions of hair removal on your face is required for smooth results, and with each session around six weeks apart, this isn’t a quick fix! A minimum of 6 sessions could achieve up to 80-90% hair removal, however hair growth is hormonal so results and extra necessary treatments can vary greatly between individuals.
Estrogen will not work to reduce hair growth after male puberty, and you may want to have treatments to move pubic hair if you plan on having any reassignment surgery, or just to avoid painful tweezing or waxing! This will of course add more session time, and a consultation with one of our trusted service providers will help to give you a better idea on the number of times you’ll be visiting.
A lot of our trans friends have described the feeling of having an elastic band pinged against your skin. Some have found it almost painless, while others have compared it to the sting of a painful tattoo, but everyone has agreed that the treatment has been completely revolutionary in feeling like their authentic selves.
Each zap of the laser treats about an inch of skin at a time, so whatever your level of pain threshold is, it’ll have probably taken you longer to get to the salon than it did to get your treatment. Whether you shave, pluck, wax, or epilate, laser hair removal will save you significant time, effort, and pain in the long run, and many people have attested to the sessions becoming quicker and less painful as your hair begins to grow back thinner after every session.
Immediately after your laser treatment you will likely see bumps and redness in the treated areas. These patches may last for a few hours after each session, and it’s completely normal to feel like you have sunburn in the area. You can reduce the sensitivity that occurs with a cold compress.
After any redness has gone you can freely enjoy the beautiful feeling of soft, hair-free skin for the next few weeks until your hair starts to grow back and it’s time for your next session!
Having your unwanted hair removed can be fundamental in beginning to feel like your authentic self, and with potentially months of treatments split six weeks apart ahead of you, it’s a good idea to start as soon as possible. Many trans friends have agreed that early laser treatments have been a great way to really see the changes in their bodies and feel more like the person they’re supposed to be.
