Transgender Friendly Laser Hair Removal in Beverly Hills at Lasky Aesthetics & Laser Center
Transitioning from a male to a female can be a long process and emotional process involving several physiological and cosmetic procedures to achieve the desired feminine appearance. Hair removal is often a major concern for many men going through the transition to become women. While there are several different ways to rid yourself of unwanted body hair, laser hair removal is one of the most permanent and effective options. Laser hair removal is noninvasive and utilizes a low-level laser beam that is tailored to the thickness of your hair, skin color and more.
Below is some more information on laser hair removal and why you should choose Lasky Aesthetics and Laser Center for transgender friendly laser hair removal in Beverly Hills.
Reasons for Transgender Laser Hair Removal
The biggest reason men and women undergo laser hair reduction is to rid the body of unsightly or uncomfortable hair. This is especially important for those transitioning into women as body or facial hair can work against their other cosmetic or surgical efforts. Alternative hair removal methods like shaving, bleaching and waxing aren't always convenient. On top of that, they are only temporary efforts. Shaving and waxing can also cause unattractive razor bumps or acne.
Facial Hair Removal
Facial hair removal is one of the most popular types of laser hair removal for those transitioning to become women. Although laser hair removal may be more commonly used to treat large areas, focused hair removal is possible. It is often a desired procedure on the chin or upper lip areas.
Chest Hair Removal
The chest is another area popular for laser hair removal. By targeting the roots of the hair underneath the surface of the skin, this procedure can be a smart way to feel more confident and feminine in everyday life.
Back Hair Removal
A back covered in hair may not be desirable for transgender women. Laser hair removal can be very effective in achieving a smooth, hairless back. Multiple sessions are recommended to achieve the results you want. The procedure should be undertaken in about four- to eight-week intervals to be most effective.
Leg Hair Removal
With summer approaching, you may be ready to bare your legs without having to shave or wax. Legs are one of the most popular treatment areas for women who want a smooth look without constant shaving or waxing. If you’re ready to take this step in your transition, we can help there too. If you choose to continue shaving and waxing, as many women tend to do, we can recommend great products to help reduce the appearance and occurrence of bumps and ingrown hair.
Additional Hair Removal Treatments Available
Laser hair removal for men transitioning into women can be targeted to multiple areas of the body, with the face, back, legs and chest being the most popular. Laser hair removal can also be effective on areas like the abdomen, arms, bikini area, neck and shoulders. While many aesthetics clinics can offer laser hair removal for men and women, Lasky Aesthetics and Laser Center understands the unique needs of the transgender community. We offer a warm, welcoming environment and our expertise ensures you the best possible results.
