Transgender Permanent Hair Removal via Electrolysis
We are specially attuned to the needs of the transgender community and provide a safe, friendly, and supportive environment for your permanent hair removal treatment. Many of our clients participate in Callen-Lorde programs and some have qualified to get treatments covered by their health insurance (discuss this with your Callen-Lorde physician).
As you may already know, electrolysis is the only method approved by the FDA for permanent hair removal (laser isn't, and you can read more about it on the FDA website). Removing hair is much more than a cosmetic treatment for the TG community - it is a core part of the identity, which is why electrolysis tends to be the method of choice.
We have transgender clients at every stage: some are pre-op and have just begun their transition. Others are nearing an official change; switching the first name to a female one in our reservation system is always a big milestone. Others come to our office years after surgery to acheive smoother skin they didn't have a chance to address before.
No matter what stage you're at (or even if you're still unsure!), we've been down this road many times and will be happy to guide you along. We invite you to make an appointment for a free confidential consultation, during which you will also be able to get a free patch test, learn more about electrolysis, and about us.
