The journey of transitioning can be a challenge. While facial feminization surgery and other surgical cosmetic procedures are long-term solutions, it may not be financially or socially feasible until later in your transition. However, the constant upkeep of a more feminine appearance can be daunting. Skin care, makeup, dressing and the removal of unwanted body hair can take up a lot of time in addition to being uncomfortable or painful. Fortunately, there are plenty of less-invasive procedures available to help make sure your body matches your identity. Here are our top transgender beauty tips and tricks.
Laser hair removal is a safe, non-surgical procedure that can be applied to your face, chest, back, arms, legs, feet and neck to help transgender patients permanently remove unwanted hair. It is one of the most popular transgender beauty treatments available, and it can even be used on your bikini line or the hairline of your scalp to create a more feminine appeal. Laser hair removal can be used to completely remove hair over several sessions or to simply thin out hair, and our practice offers transgender friendly laser hair removal services to patients in a comfortable and welcoming environment.
If you are considering liposuction but only have a few problem areas, CoolSculpting may be able to get you the results you want without surgery. Love handles, flabby thighs and stubborn tummy pouches can be sculpted away without anesthesia or a single incision. This can help you get the contours you want for a trim, shapely female silhouette. Keep in mind that CoolSculpting is only used for fat reduction on small, stubborn areas and isn't an alternative for weight loss.
If your skin is rough, blemishes and imperfections tend to stand out. Laser skin resurfacing helps regenerate your skin and give it a soft, healthy glow. If you feel your tough skin makes you look masculine, resurfacing can help you make a positive change. Using good skin care products, being careful with hair removal and having laser resurfacing are not only excellent transgender beauty tips but also part of any good skincare routine.
One of the best-kept transgender beauty tips is to use Botox and facial fillers to smooth wrinkles and create a more feminine appearance. These injections can be used on the jawline, temples, cheeks, lips and even the forehead to create a softer, smoother appearance. Injectables are only a temporary solution, of course, but they can help you in several ways. First, they will allow you to see the differences you want to make in your face before you take permanent, surgical steps. Second, you can achieve a more feminine look while waiting for feminization surgery. Even after facial feminization surgery, many patients continue to come for fillers as they look more natural than facial implants and keep them looking young.
