There has been an emerging trend amongst transgender and non-binary (TGNB) individuals, a growing demographic with unique healthcare needs; that is the challenge of finding experienced providers who offer permanent hair removal services as they are transitioning and preparing for gender affirmation surgery. Obstacles include a lack of businesses who cater to this community and confusion regarding hair removal options and how to maximize their efficacy.
Transgender laser hair removal uses light energy to destroy hair follicles on your face and body as part of the male-to-female gender confirmation process. For many trans women, hormone replacement therapy (HRT) gradually reduces new hair growth. Combining HRT with laser treatments is a safe way to accelerate the hair removal process.
Most need 8 to 12 sessions, spaced four to six weeks apart, to see optimal results, and an annual maintenance treatment to maintain them. Because hair removal lasers target the pigment in your hair, best results will be seen on those with dark hair. Laser hair removal does not work on blond, red, or gray/white hair.
Laser hair removal can be performed anywhere you wish to remove hair, including your face, chest, arms, underarms, back, legs, and genitals. Lasers are much faster and more effective than electrolysis, which targets one individual hair at a time.
If you’re interested in enhancing the results of your gender transition with laser hair removal, contact NOVALUNE LASER to schedule an in-person or virtual consultation to assess your needs and determine a treatment and pricing plan. Please be advised that insurance companies generally do not cover costs of permanent hair removal for transgender and gender-minority patients.
We are proud to offer our services in a respectful, supportive, welcoming environment and look forward to assisting you throughout your gender transition process.
