best hair removal


Recommended Posts

I think am ready for a little hair removal just wondered what the best option is. I just want to do it once and not have to consistently see hairs a month later. Areas most concerned are face , genital area especially around testicles as i read earlier of when one gets HRT and ones penis and scrotum is used to build a new vagina and sometimes the walls since it came from testicle sac hairs somehow are inside the newly created vagina. I know I am along way and some years as cost of reconstruction and i still questioning as i go along but feeling I am MtF although dysohoria at times but non the less feel less anxious about it.


electolysis or laser or something else.

Electrolysis is the only permanent solution. It will take multiple treatments to kill the hair follicle though.  This is not a short process but the rewards are wonderful.    As to removal at the genital area, not all doctors require it as they take care of it during surgery.

i appreciate all the support and help , is there any pain or is it just sitting or lying down to get it done.  Also is the cost really high or affordable and how many treatments does it take. I just would like to plan ahead as i would like to start some hair removal , not that there is a lot of hair on face and average in the nether regions for hair. 


Is hair normally thicker for males to remove than woman or is all hair the same thickness ?


Its nice to know if and when i am ready that during surgery  the doctors will take care of it or whats left of it. I just got concerned as when i read on another site how after post op that there was hair inside where there should not be.


may i ask how much or little needs to be done down there as CIS woman commercials  wax and reshape the nether areas.


I just have tons of questions and sometimes  my questions seem off topic so i apologies in advance just everything is new and going from MtF never had to think or do anything about it as a male.

I've only had facial electrolysis as my doctor didn't require genital hair removal.  It seems from all I've read that this area goes quicker than facial work.  Painful, if its like facial, then yes.  The saying "no pain no gain" certainly applies here.   Cost wise it depends upon your location.  In your area it may be more pricier than where I am.   Not all electrologist will do genital clearing so you may have to shop around.   Again your doctor may have a list of recommended spas.  


As too how much, the surgeon you select will give you a plan because it doesn't all need to be removed.   Ask all the questions you have.  Someone else may chime in as well.  If its too personal a PM may be the best way to reply.   I understand there are tons of questions and that's why we're here.

      I've always been into the darker things in life. The "goth" lifestyle if you will. Always wearing black, and mean everything: clothes, shoes, jewelry, nail polish, even my underclothes were black. I used it to my advantage; started mixing in an occasional piece of woman's clothing here and there. Honestly I don't think anyone noticed. All they saw was a solid black outfit. I mis-directed their attention.   I did try to always have an out if things were looking questionable. When I first started buying clothes I tried to find things that were more androgynous. That way if something was said I cloud still say I bought it in the men's department. Although I did make an effort to find the most femme men's clothing I could.  I grew my hair out and would have it in a high pony tail. When someone said something I would go into an explanation about how having a low ponytail was really uncomfortable when driving.   I played this game for about 2 years before I got tired of it and started living full time. I knew there would be comments and people would stare but I was starting to see the light. I was happy with myself and started to not care what others thought.

      Hi ladies,   i have stayed away for about three weeks.  I don’t plan on going back to read all your wonderful posts.  I’ll just restart here.   My wife and I  went to our daughters house for a few days.  While there my son and his wife came to visit too.  That made it even more special.  Since we were all going our separate ways on Friday, the kids decided to talk to me about my being transgender.  Since my relationship with my wife is rather precarious I don’t force things on her like they did.  I didn’t  mind talking to them but to do so at the expense of their mother was difficult at best.  Our daughter in law wound up leading the questions. It went reasonably well.    Willow

      You're not wrong. Peers that know what you're going through are very helpful. I can't help feeling that your sons are in good hands though.   Hugs!

      Luck! May it be everything you dreamed of!   Once the bandages come off anyway, the first week is a little rough. 😘   Hugs!

      Im trying to take one day at a time. But like I said, I have a lot of connections all around up here north because work takes me to other places and our law given breaks usally ends up on a truck stop along side of each others. So the big scare is changing the reality when so many have gotten in touch with who I am at this point. I try to tell myself that my personality and morale is still the same no mather how I look on the outside and that it these thing people like about me. Still uncertain roads to take are always scary.   Thanks everyone for such warm welcome Victoria❤

      Thankyou again everyone for your kind words. I am very happy with how it looks so far ... though I can't wait to see what it looks like with the stitches and tape removed.   It's a bit scarey ... despite having been on HRT for the past 5 months ... I feel like I've really nailed my colors to the mast now.   Im trans ... and I'm taking no prisoners!

      Every time I read something like this I just imagine how unhappy she must be. I can see no other reason for the persecution she is undertaking. It's not like she needs the money, or the fame ... it's just pure hate.   And hate usually comes from a deep unhappiness iinside one's self.    So, my plan is to just be happy. I am a transissioning transgender woman and I am happier than that spiteful petty woman.   She can keep her money. It obviously hasn't brought her happiness.

      Yes, FaceApp was pretty much what set me over the edge from 'thought CDing would be the answer til the end' to 'must transition NOW'.    Seeing 'myself' 'outside' did it. And seeing 'myself' in everyday mode as opposed to a made up for cocktail hour mode.   I use it now with the eraser function to see how the hair I'm growing out looks if my face was more feminine, do the gender swap and erase the hair it adds.

      Oh wow, that looks awesome Berni ❤️   Hugs Robin

      Thanks @DeeDee. That's exactly the advice my wife has been giving me ... its nobody's business. Pretty sure I'll wear a scarf ... the stitches and tape are pretty ugly.
    • DeeDee
      It's no one elses business, but I would deflect with humour. Tell them you got it fighting off a ninja assassin or being Black Widow's stunt double for her new film...  Or wear a loose but llight neck scarf x

      Its The Mirror of Erised that App. I have spent hours under its spell.   (Apologies for the reference to She Who Shall Not Be Named)
    • Berni
      Yeah. Fingers crossed for November. Even here in Australia we're on tender hooks waiting to see what happens.
