How Does Transgender Laser Hair Removal Work?
If you decide to undergo laser hair removal, you will come in for treatment approximately once every six weeks until you have achieved the desired reduction in hair growth. Before your treatment, you will shave the targeted areas. Six weeks before your first laser hair removal treatment, you should:
- Avoid tanning or artificial tanning products
- Wear sunscreen on the treatment area
- Avoid tweezing, plucking, or waxing the hairs in the affected area
On the day of your treatment, our laser technician will adjust the laser’s pulse, size, frequency, and power in order to remove hair with precision. Our technician will then focus the laser on individual hair follicles in the affected area, disabling the roots so they can no longer grow new hair. Most patients feel minimal discomfort during this process. Depending on the size and location of your treatment area, this process can take from ten minutes to two hours.
After your treatment, you can immediately resume normal activity. You may experience mild redness and swelling in the treated areas. Dr. Barone recommends alleviating any resulting skin irritation with creams, ice packs, and aloe gels.
Dr. Barone can treat many areas of your body with laser hair removal. These include:
- Bikini area
- Face, including your upper lip, chin, and eyebrow area
With a full course of treatments, you can have smoother skin with a significantly reduced need to shave or wax. Most patients reduce their hair growth by approximately 80 to 90 percent or more. We are happy to perform touch-up treatments as needed.
Laser Hair Removal Candidates
Shaving, tweezing, and waxing can be uncomfortable and inconvenient. If you wish to significantly reduce the need to curb unwanted hair, you can benefit from laser hair removal. Good candidates for laser hair removal should:
- Be in good physical health.
- Have dark hair and light skin. We can also perform this procedure for patients with lighter hair and darker skin, but it may not be as effective.
- Have thicker hair. We can perform laser hair removal for patients with thinner hair, but the results may not be as dramatic.
- Be prepared to undergo multiple treatment sessions in order to achieve their goals.
