When you feel attractive, you also feel more confident and life is more vibrant and fulfilling. However, ones sense of personal beauty is based on their insight into who they really are. Sometimes the outside does not always reflect who we are inside- hence we start on a road of transition. Transgender individuals have a long and complex road ahead of them…removing unwanted hairs from the face of other areas in the body is a very important aspect of their journey.
Temporary methods, shaving, waxing, threading are just that, temporary.
Laser can be an acceptable or a preferable method in some cases, but keep in mind laser is only a reduction of hair and it might not work on every type of hair.
Electrolysis can help; it is the only Permanent Hair Removal method to achieve a smooth, hair free look. It works on every area and every type of hairs. We as electrologists are trained and experienced to help these individuals achieve their best results in the shortest amount of time.
