Laser I Chickened Out,thinking Electrolysis Being Permanent

I was to have my first full facial laser treatment this week but I chickened out. I didn't have much of a plan eg how treatments required, laser spaced out over how many months. , how long face to look sunburned after treatment. Most important if only someone could guarantee the hair not come. back.

I know at least with electrolysis that the FDA says the hair removal is permanent.

If you have or had electrolysis how many hours a week did you do? Was it the blend method or the therman format? Which format did you like the best.

Do people doing the electro work, the electrolysis have a certain area that they want to work on the face?

I dont think I could afford anymore than 1 week per month til some bills are paid.

I have heard/read that electroysis on the upper and lower lips are the worst area for pain.

Which area do you want worked in and what order.

An scars with electrolysis or laser and did they go away?

I need to start some time on this.

I have been doing laser for over a year and no scars for me. The sunburned look goes away in less then a day.

This is true and that is why some choose this over laser. Laser however is faster at removing the dark hairs.

I don't know what format they use but yes I have had electro too. I will tell you that I have red marks and sometimes scabs from electro. They take a week or two to go away. No scars from what can tell though.

Do people doing the electro work, the electrolysis have a certain area that they want to work on the face?

That all depends on you and where you tell them to work. You are paying and you get to request where to work.

I dont think I could afford anymore than 1 week per month til some bills are paid.

That is ok but electro like I said take longer then laser so there will be a lot of hours to make a difference depending on how much facial hair you have.

I have heard/read that electroysis on the upper and lower lips are the worst area for pain.

This part is very true. It hurts on the uppper lip the worst especially right under the nose.

Which area do you want worked in and what order.

For me it is the goatee area. That is the part people look at the most and can see the shadow.

An scars with electrolysis or laser and did they go away?

Like I said in other parts, I haven't had any scars so far with either treatment.

I need to start some time on this.

Good Luck

When I went in to have some test areas on my face i think I was told it would look like a sunburn and go away in a day. My face was kind of sunburn look for days and about a week to completely disappear. I was told before my test treatment that my face looked a little sensitive and if it was always like that. I explained that I had used my electric razor vigorously just before coming over because I heard laser worked better with a shaved face before the laser. She had told me if my face was looking like that, that maybe I should shave the day before treatment.

I usually shave the day before myself. I don't know if that help or not. Maybe you could do another test but shave the day before. It wouldn't hurt especially since laser gets faster results.

I always shave the day of my laser appointments. I'll back up what Sarah is saying and say that if you have the right skin/hair color combo, then laser is super effective. Even Dr. Bowers recommends it for her patients in lieu of electro if they are good candidates (I am actually going to talk to my laser tech next week about beginning "those" treatments down below as my face is all but clear (in only 10 treatments!). I still have to get a little electro to clear the white hairs, but there are not so many of those, so I am really happy I went with the laser.

I was wondering why I still looked like I had a light sunburn almost a week later though. I thought that was odd because even the person who did my face it would be okay after a day. My GT thought that was normal for a week.

Has anyone else overdone it before with an electric razor, then had, semi inflamed/ irritated skin that had something similar to what happened to me?

Also. When I was a youngster I had blonde hair. My facial hair comes out dark now in the winter and she thought that it might help me reduce the hair maybe by 25 percent. But that I could never tell. The results are are different for everyone.

      I remember tentatively stepping out, looking around and behind me as I went back in. Keep up the small steps. They'll turn into bigger and bigger ones as you gain confidence. Now I feel like I stick out like a sore thumb if I'm not dressed as me.

      You look awesome.

      Still don't drink coffee. My normal suppliers of caffeine, C-C & MD, are not presently at hand, but my vitamin water is. Had a couple of emotional pick-me-ups today (in addition to those I got here), and they were much needed on an in-person level. First, I went to return an item at Kohl's (only in person returns), which worked out nicely. The nice lady at the return counter was teaching another nice lady the ins and outs of the process. Thrice, she unhesitatingly referred to me as "she."    Secondly, as I was on my walk, I ended up passing three women, two maybe 30ish or so, the other a teen. We greeted as I passed, then one of them said something about legs. Then the other adult one said, "She's got legs." The word "legs" drawn out for emphasis. Yeah, that perked me up!

      You are beautiful and I agree men can be really insensitive pigs!

      Thanks. My hair lady, and a former boss also said the same thing about the top. As for him saying he's sorry. He's a manly man. I know im never going to get a sorry from him. Even I knew as a man. If I said some thing stupid to woman in my past life. Hey everyone dose. I would say im sorry. As for saying I'm ugly. I can take being called ugly. I'm not that sensitive, but when I'm being compared to two men doing drag. That is what pissed me off.  Yep. I worked with a lot of men in my life. There has been many times. That they have said stupid stuff, and I have said how are you married.  Can be?  He really not a bad looking man. Again not my type. He dose treat woman with respect for the most part. I'll give him that. Like you said. He just says stupid things a lot. I also know he dosn't care about gay/trans stuff. I've know him well enough to know he could care less about a person's sexual or gender choices. He hasn't even known about my transition for a year yet, and we really don't talk about. As we don't see eachother in person. Because he's a trucker. I think if he saw me in person. It might be a lot different l. I still have male friends because I need a bit of testerone in my life. As munch as my female friends have tried to be into my interests. They just aren't into cars, or other male interest. Plus if a male friend want to hang out. It means a i can wear sweats, a over sized t shirt, and no make-up. Hanging out with the girls means going out in public. A hour of prep time, etc.

      Yes, thank you. Sorry, should have said that originally.

      Check your local LGBTQ+ center. I gave mine to a friend who donated them to the community where they live. They were much too nice to throw out.   Hugs!

      I’ve been wearing a bra with false breasts for almost a year, but i too have started to feel uncomfortable due to my breast growth. Yay!   So i’ve switched to some bra pads instead. It doesn’t feel as heavy or “natural”, but the lack of pressure is a definite plus.   Now I just need to find an organization to donate my old breasts to. Anyone know one? 😀   mara

      @JaycieI was in the Boston area for about 10 years with my previous (#3) wife. My job for 37 years was overwhelmingly male dominated. During those 10 years, my best friend was a woman. She came out to Chicago a few years after I left Boston to be the "Best Man" at my (most recent) wedding. Years ago by, and we exchange Christmas cards and occasional birthday cards. Sadly, I haven't told her that I'm getting divorced and transitioning. Lack of courage. Soon. Same for the friend who cut me off 5 years ago - maybe.    Funny, it only occurred to me as I wrote about the past regarding my chosen middle name. Renee means reborn, and that was my conscious reason for adopting it. I realized that, subliminally, it was because of Renee Richards.   @MmindyAgain, thank you from the bottom of my heart, and God bless you. Hugs to all at TGP.❤️

      Hmnn, worth a shot I mean using that angle [thank you] but issue with him is its his way and his way only, there is no compromising. I will try your way next time the topic comes up and will report back.

      I hope it feels really good to know that your wife supports you as she does. That she sees you as more than a collection of body parts and as a person who desires to be more themselves.

      You look amazing 💖
