Today I had my first laser treatment!

Recommended Posts

Guest Nova Maria

So my lovely esthetician gave me first laser treatment today!!!

It hurt so much, I thought I was going to die. The great thing is, the pain didn't last a second longer than the procedure! My face was a little bit red for about fifteen minutes, but no blistering or anything!

Did it hurt? Yes. Was it worth the pain? Absolutely. Would I do it again? I've already scheduled my next appointment.

Goodbye, beard!

I LOVE to hear these kinda things, I really do!


Cuz I'm about ready to start looking for a laser place to get mine zapped soon, too.

It would have to hurt a terribly horrid amount to discourage me from getting rid of the nasty stuff, lol..

Thanks for the info, please let us know how well it worked..

Thanks! Svenna

Good to hear. You will love it when you can say the beard shadow is gone! :)

About pain control. Tylenol extra strength and Emla cream.

My tech gives me an ice pack to put on my face after my treatment. I usually go through two of them before she gives me the okay. Then I put aloe on the treated areas. Aloe that's been in the fridge over night feels especially nice.

Great news, Nova! I'm happy for you, well, for the progress, not necessarily the pain.

I can tell you that the increased self confidence it gave me to get rid of my beard shadow made a world of difference. You're going to love having a smooth face. :D

The ice packs work well, and my center put a lotion on my face right after that cooled and moisterized it. I got a jar to take home, too, and put on 2-3 times a day. Expensive stuff, but worth it. One thing to look out for, especially at the beginning, is foliculitis. It's nasty and embarassing. The lotion helped with that.

I can't wait to remove my facial hair. Unfortunately I'm years away from that due to location and finances even though I go full time next month. :(

      Welcome, Tali. I'm so glad you found the courage to say hello to TransPulse. I hope you find this a welcoming and informative place, and a safe place to just be yourself. I also have social anxiety and have found life my complicated with my transgender issues. But, I have found support here, and I'm fortunate to have a few people in my life who accept me. I hope you also find the support you want/need as you make your journey, which will provide happiness too. The happiness will come!!   Gwen

      It sounds like you have a good plan for the future and are getting through the present difficulties with a grace that deserves praise.  I remember the humiliation of being called by my male name in crowded waiting rooms.  Those times were instrumental in getting me to make the necessary steps to change my legal status. HRT and living as yourself are certainly major steps along your journey as is finding a style that works well and makes you feel comfortable as yourself. Thanks for the update and happy birthday!   Hugs,   Charlize

        Hi Mary,   I have slightly more than 20 good trans female friends that I speak with on at least a weekly basis. I have never felt alone and if I really need someone to talk to there is always someone nearby. My friends situation is very different. Don't know what the stats are but there appear to be far less FTM than MTF humans out there. That is stating the friend situation only for him. Now, since he's attracted to cis females, the numbers diminish even further. No clue for how many cis women are looking for transmales  but the number seems to be like really really low. So, to me, online dating is a no brainer.  I've checked a few places and the suggestions on dating sites are not many.   Good for you doing the online dating thing. I as well think we should be up front about who we are and I also think it can be safe providing that common sense is used       I really appreciate your view,   Tess

        Thanks Vicky. Some people like very much to be part of a couple, me being one of them. Good luck at your weddings!!!

      Hi Tali, one thing that helped me was getting out of the house and meeting others. My family members all responded differently  to it. My nephews were pretty much a shrug. It took time for some to come to terms with it too.   Welcome to Transpulse!  hugs, Marcie
