Laser For Srs Prep?


Guest NatashaJade

Recommended Posts

Not that I'm anywhere close to needing this yet, but I was reading on my laser tech's site that they claim success in the genital area and was curious if anyone has gone this route rather than electrolysis. The reason I ask is that I am getting an electrolysis consultation next week for the stubborn white hairs the laser isn't cleaning up on my face and I'm going to ask them about taking care of me down below as well (when the time comes). I'm fairly certain I'd prefer laser all things considered.

If y'all have any insight, I'd love to hear it.

Hmmmmmmm....

Dang good question, Gin...

I've never heard of that before, although I wouldn't doubt that it exists...

I have to cringe when ever it's mentioned in any context, though....

I'll wait with you to see what's posted....OK?

I'm a fan of laser, but the risks are too great to use it for SRS/GCS prep. It is possible that there may be regrowth from laser, and regrowth of hair on skin which is now inside a vagina (or anywhere it shouldn't be on the vulva) is a pretty awful prospect. :o I think SRS prep is one situation where even if the hair is suitable for laser it would be daft not to use electrolysis.

The only sensible alternative to electrolysis for GCS prep, that I'm aware of, is to use a surgeon who will remove the hair follicles as part of the operation (e.g. Suporn).

Agreed!!! I guess there are just some pains that we must accept as part of the process...

It is harder than you think to find someone to do electrolysis or laser on the genital area, Kristin who has done electrolysis on my face to remove the white/gray hairs for a year said she was not comfortable doing it, even woman's genital area, she checked with several others and they too would not do it either, so i contacted the woman who did my laser facial hair removal, and she said she would like to do a consult first to see if she could do it.

I am not very hairy down there, so after shaving and putting Solarcaine on to deaden the pain i went to her office, she had me remove my capri's and panties and put this terrycloth skirt on then and sit in her dentist llke chair, then the big moment, she put some gel on, this was more than a one person job and i had to assist moving things around down there and stretching the skin, she did an area and asked if it hurt much, i said it was tolerable, she was fine doing it and asked if i wanted to do a session today, i said yes the sooner it is done the better, there was smoke and that burning hair smell which ment it was working.

Overall you do need something to deaden the pain of the laser, there were areas that i wanted to jump out of the chair then the next section i hardly felt anything.

I have a consult in 2 weeks with Dr. Christine Mcginn my choice for srs, i will explain my situation and hope laser will be ok with her.

I have recently talked with a PA that does my laser.

Like any other laser treatment you need to be prepared for 4 to 6 sessions to remove the hair. That makes about 8 months + time for regrowth to show up if there is any which should be 8 to 12 weeks.

So realistically you really need to start laser a full year before you plan for your surgery. With in the last month or so before surgery you can have a quick session of electrolysis to remove the last bit of hair you have. Assuming you have some hair left and can find an electrolysis to do it.

      I'm making an attempt to keep this PG, but it's a difficult subject to scratch with out discussing a Few sexual education items.   I'm getting close to when I make my decision to go on HRT or not, but one of my main concerns is weather or not I'll be able to remain intimate with my wife, we started to experiment with "toys" and I've increased the frequency I perform oral on her to prepare for potential non functioning male parts.   For those who have went through it, are you still able to use your male parts? Achieve orgasm through the old ways? Or have you moved on to butt stuff and prostate Satisfaction to compensate? My wife isn't too into the butt stuff aspect, so it could potentially be an issue down the road if that becomes the main way I can get off. Getting her off is a non issue, but in terms of weather or not I'll still be able to enjoy intimacy with her I was hoping some of you could share your expirience.

      You didn't realize that there were only 10 facts . You didn't notice that commas were used in place of apostrophe's.

      As with most people here I also fell in love with panties at an early age, I remember looking at the old sears catalog, or a victoria secret catalog that would get sent to the house and adoring the beautiful lingerie on the models. Eventually I got curious and checked if my mom owned any of these items, found some satin panties, tried them on and unlocked an inner battle I could never shake off from there.   Long story short after many years of stealing and hiding the shame, getting caught a few times and being bullied by my siblings, I moved out and I started buying my own once I figured out the correct size, still sadly purging some of the cutest lingerie I've ever owned out of shame and embarassment. currently I'm about a Male 38embarrassment. Translated to a womens 16 for most brands, theres still some weird stuff going on with those though. and I wear XL panties, sadly I'm "endowed" which can be a blessing but in terms of what I can wear in women's clothes limits me a bit, lace is fantastic, can't wear it though because I push up against it for a cheese grater type effect. Some Satin lacks stretch so I usually have to size up for that, nylon is awesome. Cotton varies.   My favorite panties for stretch and coverage currently are victoria secrets seemless line, the thong and bikini cuts are amazing, the hipsters work sometimes and I love the way they hug my cheeks but when I fall asleep in them I tend to fall out the sides. I actually was able to go in and try on some pairs on a slower weekday, you have to try them on over your current panties. But it allows you to try all the different cuts and styles avaliable.   I love nylon and satin for fabrics, and although I don't have breasts I have started to incorporate bras into my wardrobe to get used to them for when my breast might develop. The website shein.com has been great for allowing me to explore different styles without breaking the bank. I'm still pretty masculine V shaped so they carry alot of extended sized tops that I've been trying out with much success.

      Meeting with the mediator went well. All should be done by the end of July🤞. And it's filed in the one county (where my wife lives) that has the option of not having to show up in court in person, or even Zoom. Now for the name change.

      Sheena I’m right there with you.   You’re right it is comforting to have someone you feel completely safe with that affirms what you’re feeling inside.   I started buying a few articles of clothing this week and wearing them in private during the day when e regime is gone.  Now I’m researching how to do simple make up.  Yesterday I had a moment when I was in Target buying my first bra where I was so happy to find a cute one that fit me.  For a second this voice said inside of me…..don’t look now but you’re embracing being a woman.

      @Lucylux - This also might be a good time to see what different styles of bras work (or don't) for you, without forms.  The styles you favor will also likely change over time as your breasts grow.  There are an amazing variety to choose from.   Astrid

      I think there is some kind of music thing going on uptown today.  Guess I'll go check it out and try to forget all this for a bit. Happy Saturday, y'all.

      https://www.lgbtqnation.com/2022/06/roe-v-wade-dead-ending-marriage-equality-bringing-back-sodomy-laws-next/   "The lack of regard for precedent and for public opinion is a very bad sign for LGBTQ rights. Indeed, Justice Clarence Thomas all but issued an open invitation to right-wing legal activists to find cases to bring his way. In a footnote to his concurring opinion, Thomas said that in striking down the legal basis for abortion, every other decision using the same reasoning is now suspect. That includes Obergefell v. Hodges, which legalized marriage equality nationally, and Lawrence v. Texas, which struck down sodomy laws. In fact, he named those decisions by name. “We should reconsider all of this Court’s substantive due process precedents,” Thomas wrote. “We have a duty to ‘correct the error’ established in those precedents.” By “the error” Thomas is referring to your marriage and your right to have sex in your bedroom without being arrested. Don’t think that the right-wing lawyers who engineered today’s decision don’t recognize that invitation. They will be hunting for their next target. Thomas just supplied them."

      My first experience with therapy was with someone who had little to no knowledge about transgender issues or how to address them. Early on after many sessions she had me see a colleague who put me on anti depressants.  That did not go well for me. They turned me into a zombie. I discontinued them and soon after stopped seeing that therapist. I think because she didn't understand she figured it was just severe depression.
