best hair removal

Recommended Posts

mini

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.

      Jani, I am sorry to hear that you have not been well.  I am glad that the medication is helping, and I hope you feel better soon.   Regards, Kathy

      Hi Lily. Welcome here! You're among like minded folkx here. The anxiety you feel has been felt by many, I suspect. I know it's been a problem for me all my life, but is better now that I've figured myself out a bit. Lots of good reading here and a good safe space to ask questions. TA

      Mine is a slight twist on my birth name. Initials reversed, swapped out a letter or two. It feels right. TA

      That's kinda funny and awesome how we changed our deadname slightly to the names we want!   ~Toni

      Hello, welcome Laurel! Funny your mention of cross dressing. Discussing this with my gender therapist last week, I realized that I have often worn women's clothes without giving it a thought. All through my 20s and 300 I wore women's jeans because I liked the fit. And sometimes bought jackets because I liked the color. No one ever mentioned it, so it seemed like a non event. This is a great place to discuss, read, learn and ask questions. You are in a safe place. TA

      This is such a bittersweet moment as you know your children are moving on.   We can only hope we've done the best we could in raising them.  If certainly seems like you and your wife have.    I noticed the PACWest weather as it made the news here.  It seems like some areas will receive some heavy downfall of rain.  Its gloomy here as rain is predicted later in the day through the night.     @Krisvm that's good news about your trip.  Yes its always nice to be home!   I've been in a bad way recently but got some medication yesterday that seems to be helping out.  I was able to sleep most of the night.

      Hello Kathy.  Thats interesting as you are my age and I recall there were a number of books on Buddhism available in my later teens.  I read one (don't recall the title) but it spoke to me in a way the religion my family couldn't.  While I never formally took up the practice I believe in its tenets.  As with Cyndee I came to see the idea of mindfulness as an important way to help work through issues.  It helped me see life differently and view others from a perspective I hadn't.  Early on I came to see that nothing is permanent and we all change constantly.      That is so interesting that you've met and had an audience with H.H.  I missed out seeing him a number of years ago when he visited the Boston area.   Jani

      Hi Laurel welcome aboard.   Everyone here is very respectful and welcoming, so I hope you find that too.   Love and Hugs,   Kris

      Hi Lily. Glad to have you here.    It can be hard to share so just share what you want to, when you want. I find everyone here is very supportive and willing to listen.   Love and hugs,   Kris
    • Krisvm
      Similar to you actually I ended up choosing Kris because the name I was given at birth was Chris, which I don't mind but wanted something more ambiguous.

      Good morning all. I got back from a week at a work conference. Whilst I loved being there (was my first since being out as trans at work and everyone was so nice)  am very glad now to be home under a blanket with a kitten on me.   Love and hugs,   Kris

      So I reread this and had to laugh at myself.  I was so adamant about not having Shawna.   As you can see it’s exactly the name I have chosen.

      We are also having a wet relatively mild day.30 MPH wind.  Actually a relatively big storm.  If it had been possible i would have finished the tapping today but instead i'm going to enjoy a day of rest after doing the chores on the farm.   Hugs,   Charlize

      I love my Spanx "workout to waves" sports bras, they have the most comfortable band (no clasps). They last !!
    • ShawnaLeigh
      I like the AhhBra Racerback style bras.  No cup size needed as it’s a stretchy material that supports very well. It will not mash your breasts like a sports bra can.  The racerback helps prevent straps from slipping sideways off a male profile shoulder and the racerback also could be viewed under your shirt as a tank top under shirt.  If they even see it.   I have a 38” band size as measured with a flexible tape measure around my chest right under the breasts.   My size in this bra is Large.  They provide sizing charts too.
