Crystal Lume Medical Spa - Permanent  Hair Removal

Electrolysis for transgender

Beauty. It's a concept everyone understands, yet it's expressed differently by each individual. Your own sense of personal beauty is based on your insight into who you uniquely are, which is the whole reason for your gender transition. When you feel attractive, life is more vibrant and fulfilling.

At times we seek assistance to enhance our appearance so we can be truly comfortable with ourselves and embrace life more fully. You may find, as many others have, that permanent hair removal can help you express your finest self and reveal the beautiful individual that you are.

If you are looking for a treatment to permanently remove facial hair and excess body hair as part of gender reassignment, electrolysis is the solution for you. It's the key to attaining the smooth, sophisticated, hair-free look you desire.

Will an electrologist understand what transgender is about?

Permanent hair removal is a very important part of my process. I'm on hormone therapy to reduce new hair growth, but I need a permanent solution for existing facial and body hair. I've done my homework and know electrolysis is the only permanent method, but I'm afraid to pick up the phone.

Your electrologist will absolutely understand. It's best to select a certified electrologist to ensure that you are working with someone who takes utmost pride in performing their professional responsibilities and is knowledgeable about transgender treatment. A professional electrologist is aware of what you are trying to accomplish and how electrolysis fits into your process. The electrologist will respect you, your choices and your privacy.

Will the electrologist have experience with transgender clients?

It's likely, but don't be afraid to ask. If they don't, and you would be more comfortable with someone who has other transgender clients, ask for a referral. An electrologist who is experienced with the transgender population will likely also have a referral source of MDs, cosmetologists, estheticians, massage therapists, psychiatrists, and psychologists to share with you, if you wish. An electrologist with transgender experience can be a valuable partner in your transition.

Can electrolysis remove hair in the genital area?

Yes. However, your electrologist may ask which surgeon you are working with in order to follow his/her pre-surgical protocols. It is important to allow sufficient time prior to surgery to complete genital hair removal in order to prevent future ingrown hairs internally.

Why does the electrologist need to know what protocol or program I'm on?

Your electrologist understands the committment necessary to make a gender transition and they take it as seriously as you do. It is important to ensure that your electrolysis treatments occur at the right point in your process and in a way that works in concert with your health and long-term goals.
