As a trans female, enhancement is likely one of the most important things on your mind. Although you’re beautiful just the way you are, it makes sense that you’d want to enhance your femininity with laser hair removal to remove facial and body hair - two unwanted characteristics.
Why spend hours shaving, dealing with razor burns, ingrown hairs, itchiness, and irritation, when there are other solutions available, such as laser hair removal?
3 Reasons Why Laser Hair Removal Is Ideal for Transitioning
Life is busy when you’re beginning the process of transitioning. You have a lot on your plate and not enough hours in the day. That’s where the first benefit of laser hair removal comes in.
The process is quick and easy. It is said that people spend an average of 70 hours per year getting rid of unwanted hair. With a permanent reduction, you will no longer need to add countless of hours to your already overwhelming daily beauty routine. This leaves you with more free time to do the things that you’d rather be doing. In fact, within just 8-10 treatments, clients who choose to undergo laser hair removal notice a hair reduction rate of 95%, whereas those who stick to shaving see zero noticeable reductions in terms of how quickly hair grows.
Clients who switch to laser hair removal require only a few maintenance treatments per year and can often stop shaving after only a couple visits.
As a trans female, procedures such as laser hair removal can be a huge and important step towards feeling comfortable in your own skin. Unwanted facial or body hair can take a toll on your self-esteem and comfortability in public. Shaving on the daily can be discouraging, especially knowing that it will all grow back in the next day or two. With laser hair removal, you’ll never have to worry about facial or body hair, ingrowns or dark shadows - and most importantly, you’ll feel much more confident in your skin.
Tolerable Pain Levels
You may have heard horror stories about the pain of waxing and electrolysis – and for good reason! Both electrolysis and waxing can be incredibly painful experiences, especially for those with sensitive skin.
Laser hair reduction technology has come a long way over the years and is now much more comfortable. The Soprano Ice Platinum used at Dermace Laser Clinic has a patented In-Motion technique along with a cooling headpiece that provides comfort to make treatments pain free.
How Laser Hair Removal Works
Laser hair removal is a procedure based upon selective photothermolysis, or in other words, selectively absorbing light. The photons deposit their energy at the site of absorption, and this energy is transformed into heat in order to destroy the hair follicles. This inhibits and/or delays future hair growth considerably each treatment.
Laser hair removal can be effectively used on people of all skin tones and with all types of hair. Initially, multiple sessions are needed to remove the hair and afterwards, occasional maintenance sessions are necessary.
