What Is Pre-Operative Electrolysis Hair Removal for Gender Reassignment Surgery?

People who are transitioning from one gender to another may need electrolysis to get rid of unwanted hair in preparation for gender reassignment surgery. Transmen typically need to remove hair on their forearm and thigh in preparation for phalloplasty. Transwomen, on the other hand, need to eliminate unwanted hair on their face, neck, and genital area to prepare for vaginoplasty.

Manual hair removal methods offer temporary hair-free skin, but pre-operative electrolysis hair removal for gender reassignment surgery offers long-lasting and permanent results.

How Is It Performed?

Our revolutionary treatment tackles individual problematic hairs from the root. To start, we insert a tiny needle into the opening of the hair follicle. The needle applies minimal amounts of electric current, which destroys hair follicles, making them unable to grow more hair. Next, we will remove individual hairs using a pair of tweezers.

The Importance of Removing Unwanted Hair Before and After Surgery

When people think about gender reassignment surgery, the physical transition from one gender to another often comes to mind. But did you know that the removal of unwanted hair is also an essential part of the process? When people transition from one gender to another, genital surgery is only one of the many treatments and procedures a transgender person may need. Various treatments and surgeries are usually performed to help a transgender person fully transition.

Unwanted body or facial hair can contribute to dysphoria and reduce the quality of life, not only for trans people. Removing unwanted hair plays a vital part in how transgender people see themselves, both before and after any surgery. If you are trans, you may not be seeking surgery at this point, but you can still experience the lift that electrolysis can give to your mental health as well as physical appearance.

Why Should You Seek Permanent Hair Removal?

People who want to live happy, hair-free lives often turn to electrolysis as the most desirable treatment for removing unwanted hair. Having permanently hair-free skin comes with many benefits, especially for transgender women who want to feel their feminine best.

It Offers Permanent Results

Our Electrolysis hair removal service is a great option for removing unwanted hair because the results are permanent and long-lasting. Our laser tech will tackle hair at the root so that it doesn’t grow back. There are many methods of manual hair removal, including shaving, tweezing, and waxing, but these methods can’t provide permanently smooth hair-free skin.

Many men and women rely on our electrolysis hair removal service to achieve smooth and hairless upper lips, chins, and cheeks. Electrolysis has been around for decades, and it has greatly improved over time. Today, you can get a convenient treatment to remove unwanted hair and not worry about problem hairs growing back in the future.

It Keeps Your Skin Smooth and Healthy-Looking

Electrolysis is a highly precise method of hair removal, and it is performed by inserting a small needle into the hair follicle. The treatment generates a minimal amount of electric current that permanently destroys hair follicles.

It is more precise than other methods of removing problem hair, like shaving and waxing, which often result in the growth of ingrown hairs. After completing your treatment plan, you can expect to have smooth, hair-free skin that’s free of stubbles, raised bumps, and irritation.

It Helps Transgender People Feel More Confident

Removing unwanted hair before and after gender reassignment surgery helps transgender people feel more confident about transitioning. Undergoing surgery isn’t always the biggest challenge for transgender people, but it’s coming out in a society where people are often identified as male or female based on looks.

By removing unwanted hair that’s associated with the gender they’re transitioning from, transmen and women can feel more confident about socializing with others and expressing themselves.

It’s Convenient and Cost-Efficient

Not only do our services offer a boost in self-confidence, but it also saves more time and money in the long term. Once you complete a treatment plan for permanently removing unwanted hair, there’s no need to worry about undergoing maintenance treatments or stocking up on razors, tweezers, and epilators. You can forget about the pain and inconvenience that comes with regular hair removal!

It Requires Minimal Preparation and Aftercare

After your initial consultation, we will provide you with a list of steps to prepare for your treatment. It’s recommended that you avoid tanning or direct sun exposure. You’ll also need to refrain from plucking, tweezing, or removing hair on the targeted areas for about one to two weeks.

There are no lengthy recovery periods and social isolation required after this treatment. All you’ll need to do is apply a cold compress on the treated areas for about 24 hours after your session. Direct sun exposure must also be avoided.
