Permanent eyebrow shaping through electrolysis


Guest Lizzie McTrucker

Is anyone else going this route?

My electrolysis lady mentioned that she wanted to work on my brows because I was doing them all wrong but in order to do so, I had to let them totally grow out (this, as it turns out, was more of a struggle than I realized) so she could begin to shape them. So I went through the pain-staking process of not touching my brows for 6 weeks. As it turns out, like I said, this was more of a struggle than I realized because my instinct has always been to clean them up myself so I had to fight with myself to not touch 'em!

Originally I thought she was just going to wax them every time I had a session so I'd have fabulous brows for a few weeks. Much to my surprise, and it's been a slow process as she's just doing a little bit at a time, she's taking the electrolysis needle to them and slowly and gradually removing hairs and cleaning them up. She still has some work to do but now, without no additional work on my half, (well maybe a stray hair or two that I tweeze, I can't help it) I have permanently fabulous brows! I think she wants to thin them out from the bottom just a little more and clean up a wee bit along the top, just the stray hairs.

My laser tech already zapped me between the brows as a precaution to ward off any potential unibrow but I've never had that problem to begin with. I guess an ounce of prevention is better in this case. lol

So yeah, any of you other ladies doing this? or maybe now considering it?

I also had 3 stray dark hairs on my nose that she zapped last time, too, and despite looking like rudolph the red nosed trans girl for a few days, I'm really happy they're gone and I don't have to tweeze those any more!

I have contemplated it, and my electrolysis lady offered to work the area, but I'm not certain of the exact final shape I would want...or that I'm never ever going to do FFS, which could change their location and therefore optimum shape. I probably over tweeze them and that may impact the follicles anyhow, but they aren't my biggest problem.

I'm afraid my blond ones wouldn't like that. I've just grown used to plucking and actually enjoy it. Might be nice to be lazy however. Love to Rudolf the red nosed trans girl. Very cute

Hugs,

Charlie

To be honest I had this conversation too with my electrologist but am quite happy with threading and do not want to take such a permanent decision with my eyebrows as I might want to change their shape in the future. Once you get the hairs zapped in electrolysis there's no going back.

Unfortunately it's not an option for me. My brows, if left on their own, become a very bushy, masculine unibrow and I've been full time for over a year. I'd never be able to pass in the time they were being shaped.

They're still much thicker than I'd like, but I'm not very good a plucking them and I can't find anyone who does even a halfway decent job of waxing them. They're always too thick and the finer hairs don't respond to the wax anyways.

I understand your hesitation. What my tech is doing with my brows is cleaning them up, mostly, so they're well defined and they look good. She's not making them too thin but she definitely wanted to better define the arch and make them more feminine, even if they still had some Brooke Shields fullness to them. I trust her judgement and skill, otherwise I would have just told her to only wax them. She explained in detail what she wanted to do and why and I thought "um,yeah, that sounds good. go for it!"

She said "Don't worry, I'll make you look gorgeous and fabulous", to which I said...

"More so than I already am?"

I've been having mine done for about a year now (4 or 5 weeks between whole face sessions lately). She just goes after the 'flyers' and the really obviously out of place ones at the bottom or the super thick 'mutant' ones that very occasionally pop up right in the middle between the brows :doh1:

I may have to consider asking about this at my next E3000 session in February. :) I wouldn't want to be too aggressive but getting a more clearly defined feminine shape would be good and save on plucking or going in for threading or waxing.

Lizzie, I mentioned to my electrolysis lady during our regular weekly session that I wanted to have some work done on my way too bushy eyebrows. She said I can take care of that for you right now. We talked about not getting them too thin, a look that is too delicate for my face and frame. She worked on one side and then the other, going back and forth to make them as even as possible. Almost everyone's brows are a bit different on each side. Took a look when she was done and it was quite a change for me. The next week we cleaned up a bit more to get the arch more rounded and got after those rouge hairs that seem to get overlooked. Living full time, having the brows look more feminine is nice and I won't have to fiddle with them too much. With all the other facial hair warfare going one, this is one less battle I'll have to fight. Now if the rest of the hair on my face would be so cooperative, I'd really appreciate it. Electrolysis on the brows was a good choice for me too.

      I agree things would be different if I did not carry the self-confidence that I do.

      I fully agree that this is best discussed with the child's parents.  It may also be something more important to you really than the child. In my early day's I had one young child that way in my life and comments of that nature were just the child's way of showing interest and concern in me.

      Thanks to all my family here on TP. You are the best. @Mmindythat would be great for all of us to have coffee, together. we would have to warn were ever we went to make sure they had enough coffee for us.   @Willow Happy Birthday, my girlfriend.   Hugs to you all.   Kymmie

      I've been devoting time lately to my late-in-life hobby: an on-line radio station. I spent 13 years in the industry back in the 80s and early 90s, both out on the air and in copywriting and production. In terms of audience, I'm pretty much targeting people close to or in my age group. I think the scientific term is "fossils".   I'm getting positive feedback from this toy of mine. It turns out that when you do something just for fun it can impact people in a positive way. Who knew?

      Hello,   One of my best friends has an autistic 11-year-old. I have known them for about seven years. When I transitioned 18 months ago, the child had questions about the new situation. I explained things as best as I could and answered every question. They have had no problem adjusting to my new name or my new pronouns.   But they have repeatedly made comments in my presence like "when is she going to sound like a woman?"   I have had two conversations about this topic previously with her. I tried "well, I have been speaking this way for fifty years and it has been very hard to change." Then I tried "not all women have to sound a certain way in order to be women." Neither has been effective. Is there another line I am not thinking of that will be clearer? Or is this just going to be an eternal thing?   I do not feel my attempts at voice feminization have been very successful, so when I am among friends I often don't try very hard. I am not angry when they make these comments, but it does hurt a little when I am reminded of the fact that I am 'different' than other woman in their eyes.   I intend to discuss this more with their parents, but I wanted to get any tips from y'all before I do so.   thanks in advance!

      While the Los Angeles area is much safer than many areas, even we have our problems from time to time.  No direct evidence in this case, and maybe none ever, but the Holiday Season with parties in many welcoming and supposedly safe places have a problem with  "Date Rape" drugging/  A Trans friend of mine whom @Carolyn Marie may know or at least know of was the victim of that a year ago. The person is a survivor but is still dealing with the physical and psychological aspects of the experience.  I am there for the person, but they are having a tough time still.  Please be careful about who you are with and what is happening to you.  Make sure there are several people with you and that all of you have each other's backs.

      @KymmieL oh my!  What a terrible week for your wife.  I am so sorry.  My sincere condolences for your you, your wife and sons.   Hugs   Willow
