Laser Hair Removal for Transgender and Transexual
Hair removal is a common problem for transgender and transexual customers. Hair can be a sensitive subject, but it’s essential to know how to adequately address these issues so clients can feel comfortable during treatment.
It is not unusual for people who identify as male or female to have hair on their body that they do not want; this includes genitalia, arms and legs, face, back – pretty much anywhere! Luckily there are many options available when it comes to removing unwanted hair from these areas. We will focus on laser hair removal for transgender people and transexuals.
Why Laser Hair Removal Is The Best Option For Trans Women Clients?
Laser hair removal is the best option for trans women clients because it will not harm sensitive skin. The laser removes or reduces unwanted hair by targeting pigments in the base of each follicle with a beam that causes them to decompose, making it possible to disable new hairs from forming. This process can take up to eight treatments, but the result is worth it!
Is Laser Hair Removal Permanent For Transgenders?
Laser hair removal is a permanent reduction in hair growth for transgender people and transexuals. Laser hair removal will stop working once the area regrows enough of its hairs to overcome the laser-induced effect, so it must be done periodically or in conjunction with other methods like waxing, threading, plucking etc.
What Are The Benefits Of Using Laser Hair Removal For Transgender And Transsexuals Clients?
Is Laser Hair Removal Safe Around The Private Parts?
Yes, as long as the laser technician uses the correct laser settings and performs the laser correctly. Our laser technicians go through rigorous training. We have served thousands of treatments for the client’s private area, such as Hollywood and Brazillian, two popular treatments requested by many clients.
Does Laser Hair Removal Affect Hormones?
No, laser hair removal does not affect hormones. Hormones are produced in the endocrine system, not on skin cells.
However, laser hair removal can cause sensitive and irritated skin that may worsen if hormones are present, but the laser technician will go over this with you at your consultation.
Does Laser Hair Removal Affect Virginity?
No, laser hair removal does not affect virginity.
However, suppose you are a virgin and wish to stay one for religious or personal reasons. In that case, it is best to get the procedure done before puberty sets in when your body starts producing hormones that will lead to pubic hair growth on your genitals.
How To Prepare Your Skin Before Laser Treatments?
Before starting any laser hair removal treatment, it is essential to prepare your skin. The best way of doing this is by using a cleanser that will exfoliate the surface layer of dead cells and prevent ingrown hairs from forming.
In addition, people with sensitive or delicate skin may want to use soothing gels before treatments to reduce the risk of irritation.
Proper laser safety measures should always be taken when doing any laser hair removal treatment. These include wearing protective eyewear and protective clothing to avoid injury from the beam or burns caused by hot surfaces (such as metal plates).
Other Options For Hair Removal: Electrolysis
Electrolysis hair removal is a permanent hair removal method that uses an electrical current to destroy the hair follicle. This can be done on any part of the body, but it takes more time and patience for some regions than others. Electrolysis treatments are typically administered once or twice per week, with results after six weeks.
The problem is that electrolysis hair removal in transgender and transexual customers may take a long time to complete. It also requires patience, dedication, and the ability to withstand discomfort levels from treatments for months at a time.
It is a more costly treatment than laser, but it may be the only option if you are looking for permanent hair removal.
What Should I Expect During A Laser Treatment Session?
During a laser hair removal treatment, your aesthetician will ask you to lie down on the couch with an area of skin exposed. Mirroring that spot, she’ll use one hand to hold a thin layer of cooling gel and another covered in protective eyewear onto which she’ll direct the beam from her laser machine(s) for up to 30 minutes.
You may feel a sensation described by some as “pins and needles” or even like hot rubber bands snapping onto the skin during this time. Most clients say that the feeling is bearable and will go away after only a few minutes.
A cooling machine can be used to reduce discomfort, but it’s not always necessary – especially if you’ve done laser hair removal before!
Laser hair removal is a safe and effective way to remove unwanted body hair. It does not affect hormones, virginity or pubic hairs on genitals during puberty.
Electrolysis may take more time than laser treatment, but it has been shown that it produces better results over the long term. If you’re looking for other treatments such as waxing or threading, make sure you do your due diligence before making an appointment with a clinic that doesn’t specialize in transgender and transexual customers’ needs because you want someone who has experience in this field.

Frequently Asked Questions
Laser hair removal uses lasers to beam mild radiation to the hair follicles, while electrolysis uses a probe to send an electric current through the hair.
It can be painful and time-consuming to work on thicker patches of hair, so electrolysis is thought to be a more permanent hair removal option.
Patients should have their first treatments regularly. The facial areas should be treated every four weeks and the body areas every six weeks for best results.
Unwanted body hair can impede a successful transition. Estrogen can't remove facial hair when it's developed during puberty, so it may need to be removed from the genital area before gender-affirming surgery.
No. Estrogen only affects facial hair and does not remove body hair, especially for trans men and other people transitioning to the opposite sex or gender.
