Laser hair removal may be especially significant and empowering for trans women. Body or facial hair can distressingly remain long after the transition and may significantly delay transition itself.
Other hair removal methods like shaving & waxing are infamous for being extremely inconvenient, annoyingly expensive in the long term and simply a waste of our precious time (what would you do with 72 days?). Not to mention the unfortunate fact that waxing and shaving require endless upkeep cycles and unavoidable issues like unsightly razor bumps/body acne, ingrown hairs or razor cuts. With laser hair removal, you can avoid these painful side effects for good.

Transitioning is a unique journey for every individual. Many MTFs seek different destinations in their transitions, so the timeframe varies greatly person-to-person.
Some will want to begin Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) first to see how the therapy will affect their hair growth before committing to laser hair removal. Others will want to speed the hair removal by doing both at the same time. Our MTF transitioning clients choose to come to us for laser hair removal prior to beginning HRT to give the process a jump-start. After all… the sooner you can get rid of your facial and chest hair the better!
After your laser session, the pores where your hair follicles reside are going to be a little sensitive. You can apply makeup to conceal any lingering redness from your laser hair removal session… but opting out of applying makeup altogether post-session will minimize treated skin irritation. Scheduling your laser hair removal session for the end of the day can ensure that the skin can rest overnight – which is sufficient.
Prices and treatment plans vary depending on the amount of hair and how coarse it is. However, here are general guidelines. Facial treatment areas will typically range from 15 minutes to 1 hour and costs between $50 to $200. Body treatment areas typically range from 45 min up to 4 hours and costs between $85 to $800 depending on the surface area size we are treating. We design an individualized treatment plan for everyone during the initial appointment, as all laser hair removal and transgender transitioning is unique for each client.
In the initial treatments, the primary focus of those first sessions is going to be removing hair from immediately visible areas. This includes areas such as the face, the neck, and, if necessary, the hands or feet. Secondary to this will be treatment areas such as the décollete or chest, abdomen, genital area, and legs. In other words, a top to bottom approach can be used.
