Electrolysis Soon


Recommended Posts

Omergerd ... I've got an appointment for electrolysis. Happy dance.

I just needed to tell someone 😁

She's super busy this time of year here what with Spring and Summer heading our way over here, so I have to wait 2 weeks; it will fly past I'm sure.

Only facial hair to start with and see how I cope.



Oh and for those following along at home, the home IPL does stuff all for my facial hair but seems to be reducing the foot and hand hair.

Becoming less of a Hobbit every day ... hee hee

Congrats Robin! I’m on my 2nd treatment of laser on my face.

Pain killers .... Also, something with lidocaine. I have been using Aspercream roll-on and spray, before my treatment. Prepare yourself for when she goes for the hairs right under your nostrils and also for the hair way out in the distance. Sorta in the high cheek area.

Omergerd .. I've been to the Electrologist, is that even the right name ? She is a wonderful lady. No problems at all doing my facial hair.

I went straight from work so i was in boy mode, i got the feeling it wasn't too unusual.

I've now booked 3 of my first hour sessions to start in a couple of weeks. She thinks 15 to 20 hrs over the the next 8 to 10 mths will get nearly it all.

It's feels wondeful to be ticking off another thing on my journey.

1Hey @Robin.C, congratulations on starting electrolysis.


It really helped  me feel more feminine. Very positive experience for me.


I have been on weekly 1 hour sessions for about 18 months now (had one this afternoon). Maybe it's just me but I kinda love my electrolysis technician ... weve been through so much together.


I dont take pain killers as I find the pain, for one hour, bearable. I noticed, however, that the pain got worse after starting HRT ... maybe its just me.


My upper lip and most of my chin is clear now and we are working on cheeks and neck.  Its incredible not having to shave parts of my face anymore.


I was, yet again, plucking eyebrows the other week when I realized .... I could have electrolysis on my brows! So we are also working on brows now.


Anyway ... SUPER painful but so so so worth every second.

@Berni electrolysis after starting HRT is a little tougher to take.   I don't use anything special for pain.  I've started on my eyebrows and its different type of skin than the face.  I really feel it! Yikes!!

thank you @Emily michelle, @KMTAL, @Jani for the information.

It will be baby steps to begin with and then we will see where it takes me 😁


It's a happy thing because everything else seems to be a struggle at the moment.

I know it will get better, it is just tough when you are in it.

This thread really got me excited somehow.  I want to start electrolysis like...yesterday. Waiting on some insurance stuff.

First words out of my mouth will be "Happy Dance".

Thanks for posting that...its inspiring to us just starting.

Well today was first electrolysis. I never thought I would get to today with all the things that have gone on.

Cancellations due to illness and work and family, sigh.

However today was the day.

Yes ... absolutely. I managed 40 minutes in my first session, maybe could have gone longer but was better err on the side of caution and see how my skin reacts to it's first dose of current.

Inside I'm so excited and happy, though I know its a long way to go it feels wonderful to have started.

Next week is therapist appointment will be an interesting visit 😉

      I love the look and feel of leggings. And there are soo many cute styles and prints out there. I have a pair of 4 inch workout shorts (not the best) I wear under them. They help to keep stuff contained so I can wear shorter tops. One of my life goals is to never wear jeans in public again. And since I want to add dresses and skirts but my legs look like they've never seen sunlight I'll  have to (happily) figure-out this whole pantyhose thing.

      Does setting powder make that much of a difference?
    • ElizabethStar
      I never got into laser cutting, it's 3d printing and not my design. My designs are usually a little more complex. Last summer I designed and built an exoskeleton (my 3rd version). It's powered or anything. More like a costume. The tricky parts were: every part had to fit within a 6inch cube (it made for quit the puzzle), all the joints are supported with metal BB's (for bearings) and some Velcro straps. No glue, no screws or any other foreign materials. I loved the engineering challenge.

      That’s really cool Elizabeth!   Hi Willow I don’t really use much concealer now mainly under my eyes. Once I started getting laser i stopped using orange concealer. I should try setting powder. I would also like to learn contouring.

      I know this is specific but just at the moment insurance companies seem to be making a point of dragging their heels over paying in general quite a lot of the time.   I have not looked into it but I wonder which is to be favoured - coverage via health insurance which is iffy at times over payout through company (and location?) or coverage via health (NHS here) which is limited by resources.   Tracy

      @Jackie C.But in leggings femininity can "escape" through the legs 😄.

      oh my dear Jackie, I’m sure you realize by now I am completely shameless! I mean last weeks video is already over 15,000 views and climbing and all because I talked about dilation! I think I disappointed so many people keeping it clean! Then again I always make my videos as generically clean as possible because the possibility of young people in transition watching is always very real... I’m extremely fascinated by your new project, I would really like to know what you come up with, I’d like to see it, I might even be able to use it on the channel if you’re willing to come up with something! I’m always struggling to come up with something funny at the end of the video, maybe you could do something funny or help me tell a joke and I could be the voice actor?

      @ElizabethStar is that a laser cutter?  Cute ears.   @Emily michelle generally less is more but you do have to color correct to hide the blueish grey that can show through from any facial hair.  Blend blend blend! Using a foundation brush.  And top it all off with a setting powder.   hugs   willow

      @Ithani Keep your head up, hon. If there one thing I know for sure...change is always right around the corner. Take a deep breath and know that things will improve.   Before I let you go....Can I ask what you have done or are doing for yourself to combat this? Are you trying to handle his on your own? Do you have any real life local support or allies?   Susan R🌷

      Hello and welcome @Cristie Bauman. Nice to meet you. You’ve come to the right place for sure. I for one would love to read your story. I’m sure you have some very unique stories to share within your journey thus far and likely more coming soon. Like you, I knew I was a girl at a very young age (4y.o.). I was told that boys don’t act or dress like girls at that early age. It didn’t change who I was inside. I was 56 before I finally said enough is enough and started living my life for me. I’m happy to see you are doing the same. Good for you!   Warmest Regards, Susan R🌷

      I decided to print up a cat ear headband for spooky season.

      It’s very boring lol. The weather has been cold and raining so I can’t go outside either. I have been doing a bunch of cleaning around the house. Also I managed to pick out my thanksgiving outfit. I have also been working on my hair and makeup. I was quite happy, I use a bb cream instead of foundation. So I was putting way too much on apparently. And it bothered me on how it looked. So i tried to do it with hardly any and it turned out great.

      I wrote an update on another thread about genital electrolysis: https://www.transgenderpulse.com/forums/topic/81722-where-to-draw-the-line-for-genital-electrolysis/ . I did end up getting an erection at the beginning of my first session but the electrologist didn't react to it. For most of the session, I think it was in a partially erect stage (probably more flaccid than erect) for the rest of the visit. The second visit it only happened as I was taking my clothes off but it was going away by the time I laid on the table, and didn't really happen at the third (I've had three sessions so far), so it seems as I'm getting used to having electrolysis sessions while half undressed, erections are becoming less common. Although erections are caused by sexual excitement, for me they seem to be also caused anxiety related to sexuality or modesty.
