One of the most rewarding aspects of offering medspa services is being able to help others feel more comfortable in their skin. When it comes to our transgender and gender non-conforming customers, laser hair removal can be an important gender-affirming treatment.
In case there was ever any doubt, SEV Laser welcomes all members of the LGBTQ+ community and especially transgender people. You can feel comfortable visiting us for laser hair removal or any other beauty treatment. In this post, we’ll cover what you should know about SEV laser hair removal as a member of the LGBTQ+ community.
Laser Hair Removal for Transgender Individuals
When you’re trans, laser hair removal can be a very effective way of affirming your gender and even alleviating some dysphoria. By offering affordable transgender laser hair removal, we hope we can make your life a little easier.
Here are the main things you’ll probably want to know about undergoing laser hair removal as a trans or gender non-conforming person.
Laser hair removal is the fastest and most tolerable permanent hair reduction treatment. It’s significantly less painful than waxing or electrolysis, and there is no downtime after a laser hair removal appointment. Once done, you’ll be able to return to your daily life. You can even shave in between appointments, as opposed to waxing or electrolysis that require you to grow out your hair which can be distressing.
Safe and Effective for All
Laser hair removal for transgender folks can be done safely on all body parts, including the face, pubic area, legs, underarms, chest, back, and more. We even offer full-body laser hair removal.
It usually takes 6-12 treatments spaced one month apart to achieve desired results. Over time, laser can prevent ingrown hairs and other issues that come from other hair removal methods.
At SEV, we can do laser hair removal on all skin types and skin tones thanks to our modern dual-wavelength laser technology.
Compatible With Other Treatments
Yes, you can do laser hair removal in conjunction with hormone replacement therapy. You may want to speak to your doctor first, but often, laser hair removal is also recommended prior to some gender-affirming surgeries.
In some cases, some hairs may persist even after multiple series of laser hair removal treatments. Many of our patients choose to undergo laser hair removal to eliminate most hair growth, and then do some electrolysis to deal with “stragglers.“
SEV Welcomes All
Acceptance and compassion are integral to our values as a company. We fundamentally believe that queer, trans, non-binary, intersex, and gender non-conforming people are valid and deserving of full equality.
If laser hair removal is something that will help you feel more at home in your body, we’ll be honored to be part of your process. We’re also happy to help even if it’ll just make you feel a little sexier!
Being a faith-based business means that we love, accept, and respect all of God’s creations. Because of centuries of discrimination, we know that many LGBTQ+ individuals may be wary of businesses that present themselves as religious.
To us, there is nothing more hypocritical than using religion to justify hate. We firmly oppose all forms of discrimination against others on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity, as well as on the basis of sex, race, religion, national origin, class, or disability. At SEV, we will always welcome you as the person you are.
